I was absolutely a Voltron kid. Voltron, M.A.S.K, and TMNT were the 3 most influential shows of my childhood, so when Lego approved the Voltron set from their Lego Ideas program, it was nostalgia overload. Not long after, Netflix announced their new Voltron series, and it was like they were purposely trying to kickstart a midlife crisis for me (30 years old? The original was THIRTY years ago?! But we only just left the 90s didn't we?).

Santa was generous enough to leave the Lego set under the tree rather than coal this year, so wifey and I decided to marathon the new Voltron series while building it 1 lion per night for a week. The bonus being that it got her hooked on big Lego builds, and now she's picking the next one.

From days of long ago, from uncharted regions of the universe, comes a  legend; the legend of Voltron, Defender of the Universe, a mighty robot,  loved by good, feared by evil.

Let's go, Voltron Force!
