As Voltron’s legend grew, peace settled across the Galaxy
On Planet Earth, a Galaxy Alliance was formed
Together with the good planets of the Solar System,
They maintained peace throughout the Universe…
Well, I guess that’s enough of the legendary blurb for now. We know the lowdown since late last month: our next much-awaited set, the LEGO Ideas Voltron: Defender of the Universe (21311) is coming, and nostalgic LEGO fans can’t wait. To gear up for the releases of LEGO Ideas Voltron (21311) next week (for VIPS) and next month (for general consumers), LEGO has now uploaded the designer video for it. Featured on the video are model designers Niek van Slagmaat and Mark Tranter, who discuss the manufacturers’ process in transforming the proposal of Ideas member Leandro Tayag (len_d69) into the official product it is now.
Perhaps the biggest draw about this immense set was that Ideas Voltron (21311) is technically five individual brick-built models that combine into one giant mech. The nice part as we’ve seen from this designer video was that all components were poseable alone or together, articulating as either lions or robot limbs.
The LEGO Ideas Voltron: Defender of the Universe set (21311) will be available (in limited quantities) during the 2018 San Diego Comic Con starting Thursday (July 19) this week to next Sunday (July 22). LEGO VIP members can get it the following Monday (July 23). And finally, it’ll be available to all starting August 1.
