Voltron LEGO Is Really Happening

Voltron LEGO Is Really Happening

Building with LEGO bricks allowed Leandro to celebrate his passion for Voltron - Defender of the Universe even more.

It took the 41-year-old software designer just three short weeks, no doubt partly due to the popularity of Voltron: Legendary Defender... but when an Ideas set looks this great and taps into 80s animation nostalgia, well, it's going to attract a lot of attention.

Check out more images of the LEGO Voltron Idea below!

An official finished product was not unveiled, but LEGO promised to share more details in the coming months on their website. You can find the interview with the author of that project, Leandro Tayag, on the LEGO Ideas Blog tool.

We got our first look at it back in May of past year, and it didn't take long for designer Leandro Tayag to amass the 10,000 supporters he needed to get his creation in front of Lego's reviewers. Tayag only started tinkering with the build again in March.

Tayag's Voltron build only took 22 days to break the coveted 10,000 vote barrier.

A big congratulations to JakeSadovich77 on becoming the next official LEGO Ideas fan designer! As with all approved LEGO Ideas projects, a release date and pricing for the retail product will be announced at a later date, likely in 2018.

Jacob Sadovich's Ship in a Bottle, The Flagship Leviathan project is the only one that has passed the third 2016 review period, meaning it will become an official release under the LEGO Ideas theme.

Tayag's set has five separate lion pieces, which, like in the iconic show, could combine and transform into Voltron.
