Toynami is returning “Voltron” to its roots, in toy form — releasing a 16-inch figure of the iconic Defender of the Universe. The only thing is, it’s being sold with a whopping $400 price tag.

The good news: It’s being released in one package with five separate lions, which together form the titular robotic hero of the hit ’80s animated series.

Check out some pics of the figure, which is currently available for pre-order over at Entertainment Earth:

Here’s a description of the prestigious figure:

This is Voltron as you’ve never seen before! The 5 lions will form Voltron, and each transforms separately into their own anatomically correct stance. Includes shield and sword accessories. This Toynami interpretation that captures the Voltron essence of power and might, the Ultimate Edition is a massive 16-inch tall piece that pays tribute to the handsome musculature of the lion. Each hyper-articulated lion can be posed in multiple ways, even sitting down! Fully transformable and constructed of sturdy POM and ABS plastic to allow for high posability.

I. Need. This!! :)

Black Lion is still too fat. By now it should look as close to the anime version of GoLion’s black lion with the longer head. The head is still too square and looks like the Lionbot from the 1980s, except with more articulation. Even Voltron/Golion’s tail wings are still not correct. For 400.00 they can do a lot better than this.

BANDAI should get the license, then we’d finally get a super accurate version of Voltron/Golion like we do with the GUNDAM models.

Plastic? Really? Plastic? For that price tag they should be made of metal like the vintage version that first came out.

If anyone drops $400 on this, they have way too much money on their hands.

I got one as a kid and still have it in the box. Good to know it is worth 400 dollars

Really? Plastic. Lame……
