Picked up a set at Majura Park. I was told two of each lion per store, but apparently that's just the limbs because there were five or six black lions left.

The Black lions come in a case of 2 (I've have the box!). I'd assume the other lions come in a case of 8 with 2 of each?

Hahaha, no that would make sense. It's a case of one of each limb, so if a store gets equal amounts of each case they have an left over black lion for each complete set. Caused big limb shortages in the states back when they first came out months ago, wouldn't surprise me if they were probably still ongoing

I picked up a set today at Toymates Warriewood. Got them home and my wife promptly took them off me to be put away for a gift. Hope it's father's day. But then again if it's Christmas it's not like I haven't already waited nearly a year.

Funnily enough, I went to Chadstone briefly this morning and they had 12 Black lions - but only 1 Yellow Lion, 1 Red Lion, and 2 Blue Lions. You'd hope they would have ordered enough for full sets...

They also had the basic Lions, and a large lights and sounds Voltron figure but I couldn't find anywhere on the latter where it said the Lions didn't separate. (Still holding a grudge for the massive disappointment I felt when I was much younger and bought a Matchbox Voltron that didn't!)

Thanks for these links. When I plugged Red and Green lions in, I did a little tug to see how they were supposed to disconnect and thought "maybe they don't!".

I tried the tips here and disconnected Green but it's not an intuitive method and odd that the instructions omit any reference to how to do it.

No problem

I thought it might help people when heard this was a wide spread problem with the 16inch Legendary Voltron Lions.
