It’s been a long time coming, but LEGO has finally officially announced the details and released the images for 21311 Voltron.

We found out that this set would be made into an official product in mid 2017, but heard nothing after that. A year later, and we get the latest LEGO Ideas set to hit the shelves. It looks like it’s been improved for the better, since the original project! With 2321 pieces, this set will be released for VIP Early Access on Monday July 23, 2018, with the global launch on Wednesday 1st August.

It’s also not cheap – €179.99 DE – £159.99 UK – $289.99 AU – $179.99 US. That’s a big price tag, and the most expensive LEGO Ideas set to date. It’s a good thing that it’s big! When Voltron is formed, he stands at 40cm tall. That’s massive! It looks bright and a ton of fun to build. I’m pretty impressed, and I wasn’t even a huge Voltron fan when I was a kid! Sure, I’ve seen a fair few re-runs, but who hasn’t?

It will be interesting to see how the articulation goes after the terrible attempt with the recent 76105 The Hulkbuster. Hopefully it’s a much better example of a mech that is well and truly playable. Time will tell!
