Editorial Reviews

Lion Force Voltron and Vehicle Force Voltron team up! When the evil King Zarkon aligns with Viceroy Throk of the Drule High Command to create an invincible armada: the Fleet of Doom! All hope seems lost. Wreacking havoc throughout the solar system, this unstoppable menace has plans to rule the known universe, starting with the Galaxy Alliance's secret base on Planet Acura. The only force capable of taking on this challenge is the unprecedented team up of the mighty Defenders of the Universe, The Voltron Force! For the first time, Lion Force Voltron, led by Keith (voiced by Neil Ross : GI Joe, Transformers) and Vehicle Force Voltron, led by Jeff, must form their Blazing Swords together to battle the deadly alliance. But what will happen when Zarkon's maniacal heir, Prince Lotor, unleashes his own robotic abomination in the form of a Robeast version of Voltron? Will the combined power of Vehicle and Lion Force be enough to stop the onslaught of the Fleet of Doom? Featuring the voices of Jack Angel (Spiderman), Michael Bell (Duke- GI Joe), Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime - Transformers) and BJ Ward (Scarlett - GI Joe) and the late Lennie Weinrib (H.R Pufnstuf), Fleet of Doom is a MUST HAVE for any 80's cartoon afficionado's collection! This special Limited Edition is packed with Bonus Features: CHARACTER ART SLIDE SHOW ORIGINAL SERIES OPENERS MAN-ON-THE-STREET INTERVIEWS VOLTRON FAN FILMS W.E.P CARTOON PREVIEWS

1.0 out of 5 stars Good show Lousy quality DVD! April 16, 2008
Verified Purchase
I was HIGHLY disappointed by this DVD release of Voltron The Fleet Of Doom! Whom ever "Quote un Quote" was the video editor for this release should be at the very least harshly reprimanded for his or her incompetency! The other five Voltron releases have an awful lot of grain and video noise as well as some obvious synchronicity issues but this one is just an absolute abomination!
The very first thing you see are the trailers for other WEP releases
this is standard procedure and thus it is expected. These trailers are were you first notice the awful quality of this DVD release! The first preview looks like a very bad MPEG 4 video with lots of distortion. Can you say very low bit rate I can! NOT A GOOD START! The second preview is much worse! The tracking was very clearly off on there tape machine you can even spot the tape counter very briefly! Obviously NO body bothered to check the quality of this disc! The show it's self has some very notable problems as well. First the video is quite grainy and horribly out of sync. Unlike all the other Voltron releases there is NO 5.1 surround mix sound option! The most annoying thing about this slapped together pile of dung is the massively long black screens when the program goes to the Voltron will be right back bit. I kid you not there is a 15 second black screen before you see the we now return to Voltron image! This is unacceptably incompetent of there editing staff!
The special Voltron on the streets bonus feature has horrid tracking it is bouncing all around. HELLO THIS IS DVD NOT VHS! If you are looking to complete your Voltron collection this is a start. Mind you not a very damn good one! If the Vehicle Force gets this kind of asinine treatment I will be returning it as defective. I spent $25.

2.0 out of 5 stars Um, isn't DVD supposed to be BETTER than VHS??!! April 18, 2008
Verified Purchase
I have to agree with Brian's comments. I only wish I had read it PRIOR to ordering this catastrophe of a DVD. The only reason I didn't give it a rating of 1 is because of the simple fact that it is a great "movie", and to rate it based on the quality alone would be unjust. Now here's my two cents on this release. The quality of the video and audio both reminded me of an old school "Laserdisc" that is suffering from extreme laser ROT. And Brian wasn't kidding when he referred to the EXTREMELY annoying 15 second or greater "fade to black" that seems to last an eternity during what apparently is supposed to be a "commercial break". It reminded me of when I watched it back in the 80's on regular broadcast television. The thing that I REALLY regret, is parting with my mint condition VHS of the same title. I hate to say this, but the VHS was far SUPERIOR to this pathetic excuse for a DVD. There was no 15 second lag between "breaks". In fact it was a very well edited and smooth running "movie". Not to mention there was an additional episode ta boot. I shudder to think how they will translate "Voltron I" (Vehicle Force) and of course "Dairugger XV" (Original Vehicle Force), the ones that we really want to see anyhow, because we all know the Vehicle Force was FAR superior to the Lion Force *lol*. Hopefully enough of us fans will send WEP enough "hate mail" and they will actually listen and give this classic feature the remaster treatment and 5.1 audio mix that is well deserved! I really could care less about extra features, I just want a smooth running DVD translation without black screens that is at least on par with the VHS. Luckily I was able to track down an unopened VHS of it online for a fair price. At this point, the VHS translation is the way to go. DO NOT BUY THIS DVD, YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED! You've been warned! =)

5.0 out of 5 stars 2 voltrons for the price of 1 March 16, 2008
A Kid's Review
I seen this on TV way back,
this was my favorite TV movie of voltron
to those that did not seen it in the 80's
it has both voltrons lions and cars,

as they fight 5 robeast that transform in to
a big doom robot,

so it take the power of both lion and car voltron
to fight it,

so you will see every one from lion force
and cars space explorers from both shows,

and planet doom and the drulls Empire join together
to fight voltron and win planet aruse,

in a big crossover space battle,

Voltron: Fleet of Doom is a one-hour special where the Lion Force Voltron team and the Vehicle Voltron team come together to fight an alliance between Planet Doom and the Drule Empire. While this is supposed to be the premise, the two Voltrons and their respective pilots don't spend a lot of screen time together. Much more emphasis is placed on the Lion Force Voltron characters, especially on a sub-plot concerning Zarkon's witch, Haggar, stealing Princess Allura's soul and Keith having to go into a "dream dimension" to save her. While the idea of having the two Voltrons teaming up together is an interesting one, the potential for this idea is never fully realized within this story.

World Events Productions self-released the DVD for Fleet of Doom. Unfortunately, there are a couple of problems with this release. There was a poor job done on the audio mastering; while the dialogue can be heard clearly, the background music and sound effects are soft and mixed so far into the background, that it can be hard to hear them. Also, unlike the other Voltron DVD releases, significant "dead space" is left between the "bumps" for the commercial breaks; this "dead space" really hurts the flow of the special.

There are five special features included on the Fleet of Doom DVD release. The first is "Character/Vehicle Slide Show." This slide show combines production art and stills from both Vehicle Voltron and Lion Force Voltron, with some token shots from Fleet of Doom. However, the viewer has no way of controlling when the pictures change, and the slideshow runs for way too long (especially for a slideshow that doesn't have any background music included). This feature would have been stronger if it had been shorter, and put more focus on Fleet of Doom.

Almost perfect (9 out of 10). I would've given it a 10 out of 10 except they forgot to cut out all the 'dead space' when they deleted the commercials.
