Although the Miracle Productions VV was a little hit-and-miss on QC and execution, it had some really innovative design features that I kind of wish Bandai had incorporated for this SOC. The forward pivots in the chest for the shoulder connections, the unique stowage and connection features of the thigh subs, and the flip-over roof panel interlocks for the foot vehicles were all really nice updates to Dairugger XV toy design in my opinion. I have no doubt that the SOC will be leagues above in terms of solidity and finish quality.

Really not sure what they're thinking with those front bumpers on the foot cars. It's the Voltron aesthetic equivalent to the micro-sized intakes on the CMs Legioss.

NY has them at the bargain basement jacked up price of 42,500 Yen. F*cking crooked MFers. Just Sayin. :diablo:

Crazy! (though it'll still be better than the inevitable eBay prices!)
Everywhere else seems out of pre-orders already, it's odd that they still have "stock" considering most places sold out within 10mins or so it seems.

Hopefully those that order late will get one. Haven't they cancelled ppls pre-orders before because they couldn't secure stock when the figure released?

Thanks to a heads-up from a fellow collector pre-order secured at Amazon.com directly from Blufin.

Got my preorder in, too. I was hoping it'd be a little closer to the Lion Voltron in price, but eh.

Got my order in early this morning too. After paying tax (the new normal), the price was a wee bit more than what @Mog said he paid at NY, so I'm not complaining.

Also, with any luck, Amazon's pre-order price guarantee will kick in and we will get a humble discount by the time November rolls around.

Glad folks were able to pick one up through Amazon. . . and at a reasonable price.

Congrats to everyone who got it from Amazon US.  Just be cautious of items being cancelled as Amazon does this from time to time.

Yeah I don't want to scare anyone, hopefully all is well for everyone above, but by initial Chogokin Lion Voltron order was with Amazon US and that got cancelled due to the quantities they received being far, far less then expected, it's why I didn't bother with Amazon US for Vehicle Voltron. But once again, hopefully all is well, I'm still waiting on BBTS out of convenience, I get a lot of stuff from them nowadays.

$340 and tax, which for me is another $20.

Mm. I've had Amazon cancel Transformers pre-orders on me before, so I understand that of which you speak. 

Anyway, if the worst were to happen, I'll roll with it. It would be a real bummer for sure, but I do have my SOC Voltes V and Lion Voltron already so that's my personal silver lining I guess. Can't speak for anyone else though, and I do understand when others get frustrated with the numerous pre-order shenanigans.

If you say so. I haven't been paying attention to Bandai's MSRP or what the Japanese stores are charging. All I know is that it's $40 more than GX-71.

Toy Dojo posted their pre-orders for GX-88 earlier today and I completely missed it. I would have considered replacing my amazon pre-order with them if I had been more observant.

Anyway, here is the link:

Vehicle Voltron is listed as out of stock, but it may be worth keeping tabs on this in case any slots are freed up due to cancellations.

I'm sure other US stores that carry SOCs, like BBTS and The Chosen Prime, will follow suit and list this bad chicken soon.

Vehicle Voltron just went live on bbts 8 minutes ago.  Took me 8 minutes to check out.  Limit 1 per customer and only limited number available.
