At this point, I believe that Funko holds more licenses to beloved franchises than any toy manufacturer in the world. And today, we can add one more beloved property to the list of available Funko products: straight out of 1980’s anime, it’s one of the most iconic cartoon characters of all-time–the Funko Voltron POP Vinyls figure is now available for order!
Even so, I never had enough money as a kid to purchase my own fully-built Voltron super-robot composed of all five inidividal lions. But with an MSRP of just $9.99, everybody will be able to afford this Voltron vinyl figure!
I’m really impressed with the level of detail and accuracy that Funko managed to pack into one vinyl figure here. The Voltron Yellow Lion has blue eyes–just the way that it should–and all of the other lions have their authentic yellow eyes. And not only that, but Voltron even comes wielding his legendary blazing sword! This is definitely one of the most colorful and fun POPs that we’ve seen revealed this entire year!
I do have to admit to being a little disappointed that Voltron is only going to be a standard-sized 4″ Funko POP Vinyl, though–I think a 6″ super-sized Voltron robot with the five individual colored lions as standard 4″ lions would have been ideal.
But what we’re getting here is still gosh-darn cute, and if this sells like hotcakes (as it should), perhaps we’ll see the super robot released as a much larger figure somewhere down the road. I sure hope so!
The Funko POP Vinyls Voltron figure is now available for order, and is scheduled to be released in November 2015–just in time for the holiday shopping (and gift-giving!) season! Even with all of the other great characters coming this winter, Voltron will definitely be near the top of my wish list for this year!
What do you think of the Voltron Funko POP! Vinyl figure, collectors? Will this figure be on your shopping list for yourself or a loved one this holiday season?
