I'm just surprised that Lego had never done this before! They needed a fan to come in design it and push it through. I don't buy a lot of Lego playsets but this is one that I'd definitly consider dropping some cash on. Here's a description of the set from the creator:
This is one of the popular super robots in the 80's. Based on the Japanese Anime "Beast King GoLion", it is made up of 5 robotic lions that combines to form Voltron.A childhood favorite, I tried to recreate Voltron as faithfully as I could in both lion and combined form.
