Hard to believe SDCC is right around the corner next month. Attendees better get prepping their lists as exhibitors begin announcing their show exclusives.
Voltron, the Legendary Defender of the Universe, is a franchise that has seen a tremendous resurgence in popularity thanks to large part to the phenomenal Dreamworlds animated series on Netflix (the sixth season premieres tomorrow June 15 for those few who haven’t marked their calendars).
Thus, it’s no surprise to learn that a Super Voltron Super Mini-Pla from Bandai’s Shokugan brand that will be offered as a convention exclusive model kit will be a SDCC exclusive courtesy of Bluefin featuring not only all five lions that combine but allow you to recreate the famous “Form Blazing Sword” sequence!
Available at Booth #401 for $70, this is a must for the hardcore Voltron fans.

Voltron is the legendary hero from one of the greatest giant robot anime action series of the 1980s and returns in collectible form in an impressive new Super Mini-Pla model kit that stands more than 7 inches tall when completed. The Black Lion, Red Lion, Green Lion, Blue Lion, and Yellow Lion are each fully articulated and poseable and combine together to form the iconic Voltron robot. Accessories include a Spinning Laser Blade and Blazing Sword. Parts from each of the lions also may be combined to form a Shokugan original mega-blaster weapon.
As the Super Mini-Pla name implies, this compact model kits offer simple pre-colored snap-together assembly. A nipper or sprue cutter (sold separately) is highly recommended for assembly, but the kits do not require glue.
