Hi all,

I'd eventually say so, they are already out in the states. I ordered mine through pc (premium collectables) due feb/march. I'd expect all the big retailers to get them in at some point

They're made by Playmates aren't they? It's more than likely we'll get them here.

I believe so. That was kind of my assumption too, just wasn't sure if anyone as sometime Transformers can be a bit hit and miss if they make it to Aus retail (I know its a different company for Transformers).

I personally believe they will show up at TRU. TRU currently sell Dinotrux which is a Netflix exclusive show. With that said if TRU are willing to risk selling a previously unknown product advertised through an exclusive payTV service I am sure they will commit to selling a higher profile item such as VOLTRON even if again the show is exclusively available to customers of Netflix.

I just can't simply wait and got my black lion from ebay. Cost me over 100 including postage fee. Why are we taking so long to get these guys. And ya, i will be spewing if its under 90 or 80 dollars. I have messaged playmates in America and they told me they have no idea. Instead they asked me to email playmates international. I am still waiting for the response. It does'nt look good for us. I am wondering if anybody heard any news

BAD NEWS FOR VOLTRON FANS

I recieve this email from playmates

Hi Eddie,

*

Thank you for your e mail and for your interest in Playmatesí new Voltron product line. We are finalizing plans to distribute these products in Australia probably in late 2017 or 2018. Unfortunately, we are unable to supply Australia consumers directly at this time. May we suggest that you attempt to purchase these products through the on line outlets of major U.S. retailers

*

Thanks and regards,

Monita Leung

I guess ill be getting mine online.
