The fun here is partially due to nostalgia. Fans of VOLTRON - DEFENDER OF THE UNIVERSE from the 80's cartoon series will be blown away by this awesome set. LEGO fans of all ages will definitely appreciate the detail and design of this titanic robot. Building each lion vehicle, there are 5, and putting them all together is a huge undertaking but definitely worth it. Voltron can be displayed as a complete sculpture or as lion vehicles.

I completely agree with the enthusiastic reviews written by other fans, so I won't repeat all the compliments and the outstanding evaluations given. I want to add one thing though, and I wanted to do it since long time (I purchased it in VIP pre-sale) but never had time. It's about the fact that no mini figures were made to accompany this wonderful set. It is true that the engineering doesn't allow making space for any minifigure to be inserted in the lions in either configuration, but I think they should have been produced and included for display. It was a bit disappointing not to have any of the characters, but the set is certainly worth purchasing and playing with. As soon as I can re organise my lego room after changing home... I will place Voltron in my city a bit like the Trider G7.

Recommendation: yes good 4.5 / 5 by Richard

If you are looking to rebuild an icon of your childhood, you will enjoy it. If you enjoy looking at interesting problems that you might not have previously considered, there is something here for you. If you are looking for a big parts pack, the value isn't bad: lots of variety in colour and elements. Voltron looks good on the shelf, and the lions are robust enough to play with.

Very cool LEGO set. Please note, this set is newly released and exclusive to LEGO VIP members. Please be patient & allow this set to become available at retail price ($179.99) before purchasing. Hopefully this review was helpful. Happy bricking.

Swooshing and more swooshing. It's five lions that transform into a giant robot. Is it really necessary to say more? It's just so awesome!

I'm thoroughly impress with the final result of the LEGO Ideas set as it took all the things we loved about the fan submission and enhanced it which results in this being one of my favourite LEGO sets to date.

"The LEGO Voltron pushes the limits for what is possible within the LEGO building system" claims Niek van Slagmaast, the model's designer, in book 6. Once you've built it and appreciated just what's been achieved, you will believe it. Not only is it the largest mech LEGO has produced but it's one that's made from five subassemblies that themselves are pretty cool models. The transformation from lions to mech is clever and done in such a way that disassembly is kept to a minimum, which very cool.

For those who will inevitably view Voltron as a parts pack, it's hard to go wrong. Voltron is priced well for what you get, and there's a huge variety of elements and colors (five pages of instruction booklet #1 are devoted to the inventory, which has elements in 20 colors). Most buyers, however, will be those who grew up watching Voltron: Defender of the Universe or those who are fans of the current show. And for them, there is no better piece of nostalgia than getting an excellent model of the universe's most powerful weapon in LEGO form. As a display piece, it's sure to wow anyone who recognizes it, and when you show them how it actually transforms into the lions, you just might make new LEGO fans.

As a long-time Voltron fan, I was actually shocked and excited at the same time when LEGO announced that the project was chosen as a winner. Simply put, the LEGO Ideas Voltron (21311) is the best and funnest LEGO Ideas set I've built. It took me about 6 hours total to complete it and I could've done it faster if I wasn't gushing over the little details. The look of Voltron as a whole is spot-on and the transformation is unique and satisfying but the Lions themselves separate are also great looking.

I think Voltron, at $179, is a huge bargain. I can't see how I could really improve upon it, other than a few nit-picky details. Tons of nifty parts and colors, impressive scale and construction. It's beautiful!

The LEGO Ideas team spent a long time iterating over the design of this model, and the end result is amazing and well worth the wait. The build was fun. Even though it would appear there is repetition across lions, it's really not noticeable - especially if you split the build between family members so everyone gets their own personal lion. Transforming the lions into Voltron can be a little tricky at first, and you're scared of breaking things but it's all very solid and can put up well with the handling.

21311 Voltron is great fun to build and an amazing bit of engineering, with five separate models combining to form a single giant robot. Whether you're a fan of the original cartoon (upon which this set is based) or the new series on Netflix, you'll find lots to love in this set. (Especially the Silver Ink parts!)

On the whole, it's a great set; each of the lions is ridiculously fun to play with by itself, and the combining aspect, as LEGO's product copy will tell you, is a landmark in terms of buildable mech accomplishments. If I have any complaint at all, it's that the final Voltron isn't as exciting as my (admittedly high) expectations. Which is hardly unsurprising; as a Constraction guy, I look for wildly different things in a LEGO product than the average buyer, and to apply those criteria to System is asking for trouble. But my sense of disappointment, if you can call it that, isn't so much a reflection on the final product as it is an apprehension for what's to come. There are some fantastic building techniques in this product (click hinges, poseable legs on EVERY lion, their individual playability), which makes me believe that these will one day come together in a more perfect union of giant robots and LEGO.
