Super Robot News: Soul of Chogokin Golion Official Images - UPDATED

Posted on 6:45 AM by Robot Pilipinas

UPDATE 1: Hi-res images are now posted, replacing the previous ones posted hours ago. Again, thanks to TAG Hobby.

UPDATE 2: Bandai officially opened a special page for Golion in their Tamashii Nations website. Also, new info (including the official price of the figure) and images were added including details of the individual lions in full armament.

Bandai really pulled out the big guns this time as they will release Golion, known to the English speaking countries as Voltron, in their Soul of Chogokin line designated as GX-71, which was first teased and it will be officially unveiled at this year's San Diego Comic Con.

This is the first Golion figure Bandai made in 35 years since the first toy was released in their Popy Chogokin line in 1981. The upcoming SOC release will feature lots of articulation as the individual lion components can now also be posed in sitting position, much like Toynami's upcoming 16 inch Ultimate Voltron EX toy. Unlike Toynami's release, SOC Golion will have die-cast parts, shorter than the Toynami version as the combined form stands at only less than a foot tall and it will have a classic look based on his original anime design.

The SOC Golion will include all of the 5 lions' weapons, including the Space cutter (blade/shield), Double sword and its signature weapon, the Juoken (Blazing sword). It will also include an additional robot facial expression part, number marking foil sticker sheet, and a weapons stand where you can neatly store the accessories that will be included in the set.

Its slated to be released this coming December, a perfect Christmas gift for the Voltron fans and priced at 32,900 Yen. Thanks to TAG Hobby for this news.
