Looks like it’s the exact same release they did the previous two times.  Same accessories and everything.

Just be ready for the “typical” Bandai pre-order insanity.

Clearly Bandai (or God) just doesn't want me to ever have a chance at buying this toy for retail price.  How many times are they gonna screw everyone?  Why don't they just MAKE ENOUGH to meet demand???

Last time GX-71 was reissued a bunch of stores carried it that don't have preorders for the latest reissue.  Maybe they'll get some but haven't opened preorders yet.

In was too late to the pre-order party. Another bloodbath i presume?

Pretty much. There was about a one-hour window where Big Bad Toy Store had preorders open. I managed to get one of those. 

Maybe some other sites like Entertainment Earth will get some. 

I have this thread and others on toy forums set to send email notifications when anyone posts. It was the only way for me to catch this one (and most other Bandai preorders).

Dew Store (Oh My Primus non-transformer store) still has pre-orders open "subject to cancellation due to stock reduction".

I got one in there at a reasonable (more than MSRP but less than scalper) price, fingers crossed.

I only lurk from time to time on the site now. But some times I think this site is just bots posting pre-order stuff. They have released this Lion Voltron a few times now. And the second time around it was easily available domestically. The Vehicle Voltron is even up on the official Voltron.com site.

What people should be talking about is if Bandai will ever release accurate lions which one of you guys pointed out years ago. Or an accurate Voltron without the visible lion legs in robot mode. That's what I would get excited about. That's what I'm waiting for in the Full Action line.

Aha!  So you did give in.

Yep! I've watched this beauty come and go like twice now- wasn't gonna skip it a third time if I could help it. It doesn't help that folks like Kuma fan the flames of regret with great pics, vids, reviews, and just general conversation in the thread extolling the virtues of this thing. No idea where I'm gonna put him, but I figure I've got until August or so to figure it out. At least I think that's the projected release. I don't mind the wait- kinda need the time to get things sorted around here. It's bad enough that Unicron could show up anytime, and I really have nowhere to put him at the moment, except on top of the divider wall between my kitchen and living room, where my cat will probably knock it off.:wacko:

@Gabe Q did you get one yet?

Got mine today! BBTS for $349.99. After tax and shipping, that'll be about $380. Really happy with that price.

Felt nostalgic and bought one too.....used the 10% off coupon I received from USAGundam the last time I felt nostalgic in 2019 for my GX-88 Dairugger XV purchase....lol

345.30 shipped....assuming they come through with the PO.... :unknw:

 

Quick question....not really familiar with these toys but have the USA releases of the Lion Voltron also get a slip sleeve cover like the USA Dairugger?  Really liked that "extra" packaging bit......
