    good news tally!!!!!!!

    I'm very happy voltron is comin back on the small screen..........unfortunately WEP its still doubtful about a live-action........so why be nervous about new he-man & she-ra entertainment??? >>>>> we know there is definately gonna be a great movie in a few years and it will be so succesfull we'll surely have more merchandising and entertainment after that from he-man & friends new toons , new toys , new comics , videogames & more!!! ^^

    As long as its nothing like that awful CG Voltron show this is going to be amazing, first ThunderCats and now Voltron....cartoons might actually be cool again for a change.

    Sounds interesting. I'll be more interested in seeing the toys than the toon.

    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Hey Jekyll. I ordered the Red Lion last week as well. Today Matty transferred the money back to my debit card. Naturally I got worried and called customer service. The kind woman from India told me not to worry and that my order was not cancelled. She mentioned a technical issue that caused a delay. She said when the Red Lion shipped my card would be recharged. My guess is you must be in the same boat as well.

    Yeah, my money just transferred back to my card as well so that is what it sounds like. Thanks for the info!

    I forgot about the red lion going on sale and missed it. Ones on EBay are going for around $75. Gonna pass for now.

    I think it will be back up on Matty, just keep watching this thread as I am sure we will post here when it comes back up and always look the Monday after Thanksgiving for Matty's Cyber Monday sale where they usually put up leftover return stock at cheaper prices

    What does anyone make of the lack of announcement for the Blue Lion and Allura for the August sale?

    Yeah, I hope they just left Blue Lion & Allura off the list by mistake. With August being a light month with MOTUC, I was really looking forward to Blue Lion.

    The Blue Lion from the Voltron sub was supposed to ship in August and be available for purchase for non-subscribers. Mattel posted a list of items that will be available in August for sale and it was not listed.

    They did that a few months ago with Yellow Lion. I wouldn't be surprised if it happens in Oct too since Mattel does not really care about Voltron.

    Is it me or did Mattel assemble Voltrons knee joint backwards. Also, the annoying spring loaded and weak ratchet joints almost ruin this toy. Mine can hold a pose other than straight and stiff as a board. And even then I have to fight to balance him and fight the stupid spring legs that pop open on their own. After MOTUC ends, I will never buy another Mattel item.

    Consider before MOTUC, if it wasnt GIJoe, LEGO, or TMNT; I didn't collect it. I won't have a problem

    Well then don't expect to collect anything because all the major manufacturers are pretty crappy now with QC and design. I mean you already know that but its hardly a Mattel only issue

    Its why things like Hot Toys are becoming so popular

    Meh, I am pretty much done with Joe since everything is now just movie garbage with hasbro took away the figure stands, accessories, and articulation. I am done with Transformers because they shrunk the Deluxe sizes but still raised their prices to $15. In fact, I am down to DCU, MOTUC, and Figuarts, and honestly, Figuarts is the only line that is pleasing me for its cost. The SH line is full of accessories, incredible sculpting, and makes the articulation on Mattel's figures look lackluster. And the One Piece Zero line is sculpted so beautifully that even without any articulation it makes some of Mattel's figures look bad.

    I now have VOLTRON!

    I have to say, I think he is AMAZING. He can achieve some amazing poses even despite his bulk. I have had no problems getting him to stay up straight at all. He can hold his sword and shield out, move his waist, etc. He has a lot of great articulation! So happy.

    Yes, my green lion's legs are annoying. Thankfully, so far this has been the only annoying one so far.

    And he is... HUGE...

    Also, about the sword holder... I think people are over-thinking it. I had the sword in it in seconds. You don't ever have to take them apart once they are together. The larger one just slides over the top. And then the thinner one just fits over the very bottom of the handle. They just slide off and on.
