Voltron 40th anniversary

I've heard that the Voltron 40th anniversary from playmates were Target exclusive in the US, I wonder if will ever get them in canada and if toysrus will have them since they (most of the time) get the Target exclusive. Anyone else looking for them?

Lately, Target exclusives have been showing up at Gamestop, so keep eyes open for it there.

I hope these show up in Canada. Getting a classic Voltron that doesn’t break the bank has been on my want list for a very long time

Re: Voltron 40th annivesary

These look the same as the release from a few years ago I got from Amazon.com and Target on clearance except they have a 40th logo on the box ?

Or is there any die cast in these LOL ?

Re: Voltron 40th annivesary

On the topic of Voltron, has anyone picked up a vintage style Lionbot from Taiwan? They were often seen in the 80s and seemed cooler than the matchbox ones (as they had tons of shooting missiles and mouth blades). New ones are still available on ebay for around $300. I think they never really ceased production (or if so, just recently).

I had got this for my son back in 2017. I got that box set that had all of them. Really cool toy. Of course, mine is in horrible shape now as my son played with it everyday at the time.
