The new Jumbo Lion Edition Voltron - based on Voltron's initial appearance from the show's first run, which itself was based on a heavily edited version of the 1981 anime Beast King GoLion - stands at 24 inches tall, in the style of the old 1970's Shogun Warriors toys, and even has spring-loaded fists that you can send flying at a mere button press:

Which is pretty neat! But before you get those wallets out, you might want to know that when this new Voltron ships next April, it'll cost you a whopping $250. That's a lot of money for your Super Robot! If you're still interested, you can preorder one from Entertainment Earth.

When I was a kid, I was at ToysRUs with my mom and my grandpa. I saw the old-school die-cast lead paint lion Voltron and immediately wanted it. Since my grandpa was awesome and wanted to make his grandson happy, he picked it up and took it to the register. My mother TALKED HIM OUT OF IT!! Apparently, $99 in the early 80's was worth more than my happiness. I still resent her to this day.
