1:1 scale replica lion parts for Matchbox Voltron cats, these parts will not work as replacement parts for existing models but I may do such if there is a demand. Pegs will need to be glued/set in place. Movement restriction is placed on the front legs as in the actual toys as well as re-pegged parts. The rounded top pegs are for the feet and others for the upper legs. Parts should print on most any printer with less clean up and separation required.

More part remixes to come.

Blue lion Details - Blue lion parts are currently non functioning that is to say it does not mimic the toy having issues with the separation of the body but I hope to upload a fully working version with raising back panel and head panel soon and back key to allow for eventual black lion to fit into it.

Red Lion - In Progress; being constructed from scratch.
Green Lion
Black Lion - In Progress: being constructed from scratch.
Yellow Lion

Warning on attempting to separate parts may lead to issues.

OMG dude!
Keep up the amazing work, seriously cannot wait to print these!

I managed to get a hold of all 5 lions original Japan models so I've been slowly converting them painstakingly into 3d models these are scaled correctly dismantled and set for proper printing. The current WIP are made from scratch fully articulated copying the originals and completely interchangeable with the originals so they are taking some time to work out the details without using springs or other parts the originals did. I will likely need to find some kind of spring that works for the Blue and yellow lion "butt flap"? I don't know what to call it. Also improving the leg joints to function better. But print test showed me limits on detail. Still glad you enjoy these remixes look for the newer 100% scratch built models in the next few months.

Cannot wait dude, doing the public a real service, and I for one really appreciate it THANKS!

I just love Voltron. Took me months to find all 5 lions in working condition. But always saw the heads and such missing. Now I have a pile literally of parts that can be digitized but I do it manually as much as possible.

Is the torso and head coming soon? Looks great so far.

Yeah I'll be remixing them, it's just a bit time consuming with STL's trying to get them correct. I'm also attempting to make them do what the real ones do as I own or have access to all but 1 of the cats. The yellow Lion (though he has a lot of things he does unlike blue who only has his head come up to show off a laser thingy)I will have to have scanned in and that will be a while as I have to take it in for proper 3d rendering scan and have it simi dismantled. You'll see a blue lion up soon. Black lion will be the hardest of the lot as while I have one mines headless so I'll be drawing a head from scratch based off photos unless I can get my hands on a lion with the head intact.
