Outstanding buildLet's the get the bad stuff out of the way -- this may not apply to you, but my stickers weren't printed properly.
The image on the sticker wasn't centered exactly, so even if you apply the sticker DEAD center on the tile properly, it makes the print look off center. I'll be mentioning this to LEGO customer service and I'm sure they'll help so I'm not going to rant about it. It's an issue so I figured I should mention it.
Now on the great stuff:
Just when I think I've seen the most clever connections/building techniques LEGO can throw at me, they go on and blow me away again! The angle of the legs on the black lion, the way Voltron's wings attach, the shoulder assemblies, again on the black lion, all sheer genius!
And you want to talk about SOLID. Each lion felt like it's own solid build and together as Voltron they're just as solid.
Sure, there's not a ton of limb articulation, which some will scoff at, but given the scale I don't fault them one bit for that. Besides, as far as playing with Voltron goes it's the FORMING VOLTRON! that's the most exciting.
All my kids want to see is me switching him between Voltron and the separate lions. They flew the lions around a bit (like 10 seconds) and then say "Let's form VOLTRON.... AGAIN!"
I wish there was a 4.9 star level because while this set is AMAZING, it's juuuuuuust shy of the perfection of the Saturn V rocket. Only just.

LEGO Voltron?! TAKE MY MONEY!Grew up in the 80's with Transformers, Voltron, & Gobots all running a close tie behind what I'd have to admit was my overall favorite toy - LEGO's. While I've been eyeing a lot of the Creator Expert/modular building sets lately, my last LEGO set was the 1:10 Enzo Ferrari. The moment Voltron was announced, I knew I'd be pulling the trigger, no more sitting on the fence. Then I saw it in the window at my local LEGO store, & it was a done deal within 2 minutes.
This is a truly exceptional set. Spent about 8-10 hours putting it together with a few breaks. Considering the difficulty of recreating Voltron & making it look like the real thing, this is a great design & build. While you come across a few little things here & there, they really nailed it. My main gripe is the lion legs popping off a bit too easily, but hey, if you make a set this large, design it this well, & keep the price reasonable - I can't even call that a complaint. You'd have to up the scale considerably to address the issue. That said - Please give us a massive Voltron just like you did with the Millennium Falcon!
In the spirit of perfect 80's-themed sets to offer, I'd really love to see more "combiners" like Transformers' Devastator & Predaking. LEGO would once again have my money as fast as I could hand it over. Also, the DeLorean from "Back To The Future" as a 1:8 or-so model seems like a *total* no-brainer, universal among different age groups, & fortunately unchanged over the years. Please... Please do it! :)

Pure joy in a boxI purchased this set to build with my daughter. We are both huge Voltron fans. This set does not disappoint! It's an amazing combination of style, structure, and awesome-sauce!
Building the individual lions might be the most fun I've had assembling a Lego set in recent memory. My daughter (6yo) was building a lion while I was building a lion. It was a nice way to team-build.
The size and weight of Voltron is astonishing! It must weight over 3 lbs. It commands attention in any room. Seriously, just try to look away from this masterpiece.
Once complete (which took over 3 evenings), we have continuously "Formed Voltron"! Very stable and fun to transform from lions to Voltron and back.
Lots of unique building techniques in the lions and how they combine. The joins are impressive. Very impressed with how taking standard bricks can make the heads look like the cartoon lions.
Highly recommend this set for any fan of Voltron or LEGOS. A lot of love went into designing this set and it shows!

VOLTRON !!!Pretty enjoyable build with a side of nostalgia. There was a lot of special pieces to accommodate being true to the design. Each lion is very solid by itself and it transfers over when Voltron is formed. I am pretty much geared to LEGO Technic cars but Voltron was a necessary exception. Well worth it.
