With the Netflix-funded resurrection of Voltron, there’s a renewed interest in toys that all merge together to form a giant menacing mech. But menacing isn’t quite the best way to describe this towering robot made up of transforming characters from Disney’s Toy Story. Cute? Colorful? Must-have? Those are all better.

This Chogokin combiner from Tamashii Nations features Woody, Rex, Bullseye, Hamm, and Slinky Dog sporting more technological designs than they did in the Pixar films. They don’t individually turn into robots, though. Instead, they each use minimal transformations to become arms, legs, and the giant robot’s torso.

Pricing, in Japan at least, is expected to be around $180 when this set is available come November 26. Following that it will eventually be made available in the United States too, though presumably with a higher price tag. Tamashii Nations has also hinted at a possible Buzz Lightyear version as well, given the popular character is conspicuously missing from this set.

Did I miss something? When did “Voltron” become synonymous with “combiner robots”? Are all the combiners in Transformers Voltrons?
