It’s been over a year since the LEGO Ideas Voltron – Defender of the Universe hit 10,000 supporters and basically there has been no information about it since it was announced that it would become an official set. I did report on rumored pricing but now there might be information on a release date for the set. Candidbricks has found from a South Korean news site, IT Chosun, that Voltron would be released on August 1 as was told to them by an official from LEGO Korea. The reason for the long delay is because LEGO needed more time to get the license to produce the set.
Although a release date was stated, it’s still not a confirmation until LEGO actually announces it online or through a press release. I’m still thinking they will be showing it off at San Diego Comic Con next month as it is the perfect place to announce it.
