Bandai to unveil Soul of Chogokin VOLTRON at SDCC 2016

Bandai has announced that they are unveiling the Soul of Chogokin Voltron / Golion at San Diego Comic Con 2016 at booth #3545. This has been a long-awaited development that I have heard about for YEARS and could not talk about. I've known about the existince of a prototype for this since 2010, when a Bandai rep teased me about it's existence. The next year I was told that it was all but a "done deal" and just the licensing had to be signed. Then Mattel got the license, and well, you know how that went... but now it's a reality. More details as we get them.. but this is going to be killer.

Oh my god! Please tell me I'm

Oh my god! Please tell me I'm not dreaming this! C'mon, be honest, the truth is I've gone completely insane and this announcement is merely coming from the voices in my head. After so many years, so many prayers, so much Toynami... This couldn't actually be true? Could it? Dear Gods please let it be true!!!

Really...? Just another rendition of the old Golion toy???

You gotta be kidding me! All these years waiting for Bandai to make an SOC of Voltron (Golion), and what they come out with is yet another rendition of the same old Golion Godaikin toy? Was it really so hard to at leat try to make it somewhat anime accurate this time? You know, so it looks like it Voltron does on TV? Nope! Instead it seems we are getting the same thing all over again. Another attempt in which the maker failed to hide the legs of the Red, Green, Yellow, and Blue lions when combined into Voltron/Golion. SUCKS!

1) You are in the minority,

1) You are in the minority, fans are beside themselves happy about this.
2) It's not a full reveal maybe Bandai is offering some anime accurate parts they have before.
3) Godaikin toy is fantastic.
4) SOC is the greatest toy line ever, ever. I like sweeping statements. E-V-E-R.

New series

I wonder when we'll start seeing product from the new Netflix series and how it'll stack up.

Stop on your way to E-Bay and hide all the sharp implements in the house. Wives can be funny...

More importantly are we now one step closer to an SOC Dairugger?

Well Bandai now has a relationship with WEP. So maybe Dairugger XV. Maybe Albegas? Maybe Bismark? New Voltron?

I cant stop thinking about

I cant stop thinking about the leg panels on the arm lions. Notice the Red and Green lions have different design panels...almost as if Bandai is hinting at something...removeable panels/legs? One is smooth and the other is just lik the DX toy. Also glad to see the hips are silver. I too knew about this for a while but lost my enthusiasm after I saw it never materialized but its time now!
