When things in life come full circle, sometimes, it’s pretty cool. I grew up on Voltron. It hit in a sweet spot of childhood for me, and I’ve heard the theme song in my head for going on 30 years now. 5 amazing lions, 5 daring adventurers, one giant valiant robot. It had everything I wanted. I watched it, I loved it, I introduced my kids to it, and they liked it, but maybe were a bit young when I introduced them. But now, in their sweet spot of growing geek love, falls Netflix Voltron. The show is outstanding and the litlgeeks love it. We watch it together, and I love it. Not sure if you knew this, but we had a look at some of the toys earlier this year, you might enjoy a re-watch. All that said Playmates is supporting Netflix Voltron with even more incredible toys to launch with season 3 starting August 4th! This go round, DIECAST LIONS!!!! If there is one toy so close to my heart it’s actually in it, it’s my diecast Voltron…to be able to put this new style, Netflix Voltron next to it?!?!? I should stop writing, I need to save some for the review, but oh my goodness we can’t wait. Read on for the official release.
