Excellent Looking Voltron
As far as the looks go, this is in my opinion the coolest looking Voltron ever. Very true to the original look with some excellent modernization such as the lions being designed to have physiques much more like real lions. Each lion is HUGE and I like that they are all plastic because it makes them light enough to hold poses better without having to worry much about plastic joint parts wearing out from use.
There are downsides to the set thought that keep it from being quite perfect. The elbow articulation in the arm lions is very lacking. Voltron's head can't turn left and right without the neck angles forcing the head to tilt one way, and ball joints for the hips holding up such a big figure was maybe not the greatest way to go. There is also waist swivel articulation that is almost completely ruined by how his "belt" in the back was designed, which blocks that movement. This can be fixed by doing some cutting, but not many people want to cut sections out of a figure this expensive to make something work that already should have.
Quality control might not be all that great either, as I have seen one person show that one of their lion's eyes was unpainted, and my blue lion had a very nasty paint defect on the face. I am currently trying to get the manufacturer to replace that.
This set also comes with bare bones accessories, only having the sword and shield for combined Voltron and no individual lion weapons or even retractable weapons in any of the lion bodies.
Still, it looks awesome, and that was what made me choose it over other options that in some ways give more bang for the buck.
