And I’ll form the head!

I remember buying saving up to buy a Voltron toy as a kid.  It was a very small model with plastic lion limbs that did not transform or detach.  It was basically a toy robot with lion slippers and mittens.

Still, I thought it was the greatest freaking thing ever.  Unfortunately, I have no idea where the heck it could be.  Anyhow, I can’t wait to try modeling and printing a replacement.  I really like Tony Buser’s idea of modifying the Leonardo Robot as a starting point.

    I had one of these giant Voltron toys with a motorized base when I was a kid. Man that thing was awesome: http://www.collectiondx.com/node/1569

    Since I just bought a heated platform and a bunch of stuff to experiment with different extruders, I can’t justify buying $80 rolls of colored ABS just yet. :)
