Weekend Toy Run: 15% Off at the Voltron Store

Voltron fans – there’s a weekend sale at the Voltron Store for 15% off all purchases. I’m not positive that pre-orders will qualify, but if they do, then it’s a good deal for the relaunch of the Toynami Voltron line with the 30th Anniversary Voltron Collector’s Set. The pre-order price is $245, so saving $36.75 is nothing to sneeze at.

The set includes all five lions, in die-cast, and form a Voltron at 11-inches tall. It’s due to land in June this year. Let’s go, Voltron Force!

Check it, kids! From now until Monday, get 15% off all purchases at the Voltron store with this coupon code! Q88DPTIXX998

Toynami Announces Reacquisition of Voltron, Retirement of Bleach and Naruto

After a short stint with Mattel, Voltron has returned to Toynami – and they’re already promising to outdo the Club Lion Force 23-incher from Mattel with a 24-inch jumbo Voltron. In my opinion, Toynami feels like a better fit for the license, and we did like what we saw of Voltron at SDCC this year.

Sad to see toy lines end – I know Sandman will be disappointed about Toynami ending its run with Naruto.

Toynami Voltron announcement SDCC 2013 Toynami Voltron

Hey everyone! Join us as we welcome return of an old favorite: Voltron!

Under Toynami’s new agreement with Classic Media and World Event Productions, fans can expect to see collectibles toys, from a all new 24″ Jumbo Voltron to a high-detail transformable die-cast, celebrating Voltron’s 30th anniversary! Look for more details on our exciting new line of Voltron products soon!

As Toynami welcomes back one license, we must regretfully bid farewell to two others. After a long and mutually beneficial relationship, Toynami has elected to end its Bleach and Naruto product lines. Thanks to all the fans for their outstanding support!

Toynami Hello Kitty Street Fighter SDCC Exclusives 2012 - 2013

I like to think that we get a little more Comic-Con savvy every time we go. Last year my wife missed out and had to pick up the Toynami Hello Kitty Street Fighter Chun Li on eBay. This year, on Preview Night, instead of previewing, she lined up at the Toynami booth and picked up this year’s Badtz Maru as Ryu and Hello Kitty as Akuma. I was lined up at Hasbro, which was right next to the Toynami booth, and I probably walked around that booth at least 15 times over the course of the show.

When I watched Toynami’s Comic-Con video, I realized I’m still as Comic-Con dumb as ever – I’m always so caught up in taking pictures / getting to panels / trying to get SDCC exclusives that I miss so much of the show. Sandman was more on top of things than me, and took some pics of the Toynami booth.

SDCC 2013: Toynami DC Skelanimals, Hello Kitty Street Fighter, and Voltron

Here’s a couple of pics from the Toynami booth – no Narutos or Futurama in the booth. They did have a Masterpiece Voltron with light up eyes on display. No word on the release date for that one.

I have to say, the DC Skelanimals and the Hello Kitty / Street Fighter mashups do look good!
