I walked outside this morning to find a large box on the front porch addressed to me from Dreamworks Animation. I wasn’t expecting anything from them that I could remember. So I opened the box and immediately saw that I should be taking pictures so I could share them here on the site. Turns out they have a new line of Playmates toys to go with the Netflix series Voltron: Legendary Defender… and a lot of those toys ended up in a box on my kitchen counter. I love my job.
So I started pulling them out and taking a look, grouping them into sets, etc.
And this last set is die-cast lions that form into the full robot:
And I figured I should get a closer look.
I love the one that says, “Fire missile to melt foes!” That’s just such an odd thing to say.
And there was this card in the box:
This was a pretty cool surprise. The toys look awesome; Playmates did a good job with them. I’ve been enjoying the series on Netflix so far, and I’m looking forward to the fourth season, which debuts this Friday.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have an 8″ die-cast Voltron to assemble.
