Bandai Super Minipla Beast King GoLion (Classic Voltron) Revealed with Stock Photos
Bandai is set to release a Super MiniPla kit of Beast King GoLion, or classic Voltron, in August. The assembled figure transforms into the component lions and includes not just Voltron’s shield and Blazing Sword, but even the lions’ weapons from the original Bandai toy!
Bandai’s Super MiniPla recreates and reinvents classic toys at a more convenient and collectible size and includes brands like Power Rangers, Mega Man, and, rather oddly, Takara’s Brave. Although they’re model kits, they’re designed with toy features in mind and with pre-applied paint applications and stickers to ease the building process.
The Beast King GoLion kit was announced in February. Now, Bandai has listed a preorder for the item, coming this August. The figure is described as 7″ / 18 cm combined. The ¥5,292 price tag brings it a bit under $50 USD, but this may not be representative of prices at import, likely to match other Super MiniPla kits of similar size and design.
The kit appears to be fully transforming, but to also include alternate disks to replace the legs of the four limb lions in combination to better match the animation model.
