PiercingMetal Thoughts: Whew this looks cool so who’s bringing me back one from SDCC since we cannot be there? Anyway, I love the idea of this being a “0” edition because that only means to me that we shall see similar exclusives hitting conventions that all are based on the movie properties as opposed to the comic book lines. Hopefully our readers who are intersted in this one can get their hands on it. Good luck and I will see you next time.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: With the holiday just having passed us, I will only say this – “I have a lot to catch up to” and with that let’s close up by saying how awesome this new Voltron set is. Sure its a tad pricey but its five different components and they all look to be rather sturdy and its big. You get what you pay for my friends and you sure don’t want to miss out on this one if you are attending the convention. We don’t get to SDCC which is a shame but we do NYCC so yeah. What do you think of this exclusive Voltron? Chime in down below and be sure to absorb the rest of the images below our links.
