Super7’s Ultimates Voltron Returns With A Gimmick!

Voltron (Lightning Glow)

Can you guess what the gimmick is? Well, unlike the last re-release of the Defender of the Galaxy, this Voltron is primarily molded in glow-in-the-dark plastic!

The $65 robot made up of five lions is expected to ship in May 2024. Similar to the original figure from a few years ago, the heroic mech comes with the Blazing Sword, shield, and a good bit of articulation.

Sadly, the only removable parts are the alternate hands. You cannot separate the figure into individual lion toys. You can, but then you’d have a broken, expensive collectible.

Voltron is a beacon of hope in a galaxy tormented by the Drule Empire, and the mighty robot never shines brighter than when revealing its mighty Blazing Sword! This highly articulated 7″ scale Voltron ULTIMATES! Lightning Glow Voltron is inspired by the moment that Voltron forms the Blazing Sword and is illuminated by a burst of lightning. Constructed from glow-in-the-dark material, featuring intricate sculpting, premium paint detail, and interchangeable “hand” Lion heads, as well as glow-in-the-dark shield and Blazing Sword accessories. Let this made-to-order, glow-in-the-dark Voltron ULTIMATES! Lightning Glow Voltron illuminates your collection day and night!

I can’t really fault Super7 for returning to the well, especially for such an iconic character. However, as someone who has owned a couple of these alternate versions of previous figures, it’s getting kinda old. See our Radioactive Rage Toxie review to see what I mean.

Lightning Glow Voltron comes with the following:

  • 4x hands
    • 2x Open Lion hands
    • 2x Closed Lion hands
  • 1x Blazing Sword
  • 1x Shield

What do you think of all of the variants Super7 has put out in the Ultimates line? Should the company re-release the originals instead of trying various gimmicks? Let us know in the comments section below.
