Voltron Returns With Threezero ROBO-DOU figure!Jose Lopez
The 1980s are back and better than ever with the range of collectibles that fans of the era have been receiving lately. The latest take on a classic franchise from the decade that keeps on chugging along is Voltron! Threezero has announced for preorder their new ROBO-DOU version of the iconic giant robot, which sports a whopping 124 points of articulation!
Voltron is likely the epitome of the “giant combining robot” craze, although I’m sure Power Rangers fans are rolling their eyes at me somewhere. Threezero has made sure to not only give us an amazing robot version of Voltron with an unheard of range of movement, but Voltron is still able to disassemble into his five distinct lion mechs. Being an 80s kid myself, I cannot tell you how much I’ve dreamed of a Voltron that looks great in both modes, which back then was a definite impossibility due to the technology we were stuck with.
ThreeZero’s take on the lions is just as good as the combined Voltron. Everything from the metallic finish to the bright, vibrant colors of each makes this quite possibly a Voltron fan’s dream come true. I can’t wait to see how this release looks in hand, specifically my hands!
The Threezero Voltron: Defender of the Universe – ROBO-DOU Voltron Figure is available for preorder now and is slated for release in Q3, 2022.
From the extremely popular 80’s anime Voltron: Defender of the Universe, ROBO-DOU Voltron will be available for pre-order at threezero store on February 25, 2022 (09:00 HKT)!
Threezero’s engineers have worked effortlessly to re-create the classic mecha Voltron in a presentation never before seen! The ROBO-DOU Voltron is designed to achieve a wider range of articulation and better combining functions than its contemporaries while maintaining the robot’s iconic retro aesthetic.
Accurately simulating its appearance on-screen, ROBO-DOU Voltron is a non-scale, fully-articulated figure standing approximately 27cm (~10.6”) tall in Voltron mode with a remarkable die-cast main frame and an impressive metallic finish to highlight the details of the mecha. Voltron is composed of five Lion mecha, and is able to split into Lion mode, or combine to form Voltron. All five Lion mecha are fully-articulated figures partly adopting zinc alloy and metal parts for the movable joints. Combined, the figure utilizes 124 points of articulation for the total of five machines, with a set of Voltron mode wepons in addition to a unique set of weapons for each Lion.
