Playmates Toys goes Old-School with VOLTRON '84 Legendary Lion Collection...

Written by

DreamWorks' Voltron: Legendary Defender has been a massive hit for Netflix, and with it came some pretty fun toys as well. With the new generation digging deep into the history and lore of Voltron, a hand-picked collection of episodes were culled from the original series and released on Netflix as Voltron '84, and that just threw the doors wide-open for a new collection of toys. Beginning in January 18, the Voltron '84 Legendary Lion Assortment will be available at major retailers nationwide, allowing kids (and big kids) the opportunity to unlock over 60 sounds from the classic series by combining all 5 Legendary Lions into a Mighty 16" version of Voltron! Check out the full details below...
