Lego has officially revealed their new Voltron set, and it is quite something. The kit is one of the largest robots that Lego has ever produced, coming in at a massive 2,321 pieces. Based on a design submitted by Lego Ideas user Len_D69, the Lego Ideas Voltron is based on the design first seen in the beloved 1984 animated series, rather than the version currently seen in Netflix and Dreamworks Animation’s Voltron: Legendary Defender.
The set includes the ability to form all 5 lions, as well as Voltron itself, as well as the Blazing Sword and Voltron’s shield. If you’re at SDCC, the Defender of the Universe will cost $180 and be available in limited supplies, or you can pick it up from the official Lego website starting August 1st.
