Editorial Reviews

Keith, Lance, Hunk, Pidge and Princess Alura have finally launched a successful assault on Planet Doom and destroyed King Zarkon s arsenal. In response, Zarkon calls upon all his evil allies in the empire. The undefeated warrior Stride is bound to answer this call by an ancient oath, even though he is an honorable man. The most dangerous new arrival is Queen Merla, who is as cruel as she is beautiful. With her psychic powers and strategic talent, the Voltron Force s only hope is to convince her to switch sides. Meanwhile, Galaxy Garrison prepares a massive counterstrike against the Druel Empire with the help of all the Alliance planets. Zarkon and his new allies stage a raid on their headquarters during the Alliance meeting, forcing Voltron into a life or death struggle with Galaxy Garrison as the backdrop!

Format: DVD
The final set of Lion Voltron episodes consists entirely of the additional programs produced in a partnership between World Events Productions and Toei Animation after the original GoLion-based shows ran out. Therefore, although the stories are mostly excellent, the picture quality falls far short of the high standard set by the previous DVD volumes. The visuals are often a bit fuzzy and dark, except for the inserted scenes from earlier shows, which are always sharp and bright. The backgrounds are grainy and the characters are not shaded or highlighted. Some colors are nearly black (see the supposedly "Blue" Cat), while others are too pale (like Princess Allura's formerly hot pink spacesuit). Nevertheless, the series remains highly entertaining, and even features a brand new villain by the name of Merla.

The 3-DVD Black Lion Collection consists of thirteen episodes, including exciting adventures like these:

"Take a Robot to Lunch": A brilliant scientist named Marianne dons her canary-colored cloak and leaves her secret underground laboratory on Caspia to visit the monument on Planet Arus that was once her happy home, until Zarkon attacked. Soon after the orphaned inventor steps out of her pink and silver shuttle, she meets up with her old friend, Coran, and is introduced to the members of the Voltron Force. The brainy beauty informs the group that yet another of her fantastic creations, a highly advanced super-robot, has been stolen by the sinister forces of Doom and is now being used for evil purposes. When the Lion pilots offer to get the robot back, Marianne quickly lets them know, in no uncertain terms, that she does not approve of their violent and destructive methods of dealing with problems.

I love Voltron. Don't let the review title fool you. When I was a kid growing up in the 80s, Voltron was one of my favourite shows along with Real Ghostbusters, Filmation's Ghostbusters, Silverhawks, and Thundercats. The episodes in this final set were made when the show was so popular and everyone wanted more episodes. The studio had run out of episodes of the Japanese shows that they made Voltron from so they went to the people that had made the shows originally and hired them to make original Voltron episodes. Being made a bit after the other shows, these episodes aren't exactly as cool as the ones in the first four sets, but they're still Voltron. DEFINATELY better than the new show of Voltron that just came out. Don't even bother with the new series if you're a fan of the original.

Voltron Volume 5 is a three-disc set that includes the final thirteen episodes of the Lion Force Voltron series. There were also two bonus DVDs included in this set: one is a disc containing AnimeWorks trailers, and the other contains a sneak preview of Tweeny Witches.

On this set, there are seven items in the "Special Features" menu. The first is labeled, "Deleted Scenes From Season 3." This features runs for five minutes, and includes some of the shots that didn't make it into the final cut of the episodes that World Events Productions had produced for an additional season of Lion Force Voltron. The shots and scenes included in this feature include elements that would be too "cutesy," or depict extreme pathos, violence, and killing. One shot even had a part that could be deemed as "sexually suggestive." Also, many of the shots included here were rather poorly animated.

The next feature is a nearly two minute long preview for the Beast King GoLion DVDs, and it plays up the idea of, "Did you feel as if you were `missing something' when watching Voltron?" The third special feature is a preview of Vehicle Voltron, which runs for about nine minutes.

Next is a twelve minute feature about the history of World Events Productions, the company that produced Voltron. The fifth feature is a "lost" episode from the additional season of Lion Force Voltron; it was an episode that had been intended to be part of the newly produced episodes, but production was never completed on it, and this is the first time it had ever been seen by the public. This episode has sound effects and background music on it, but the dialogue was never dubbed in. After watching this episode, I can see why it was "lost.

you just can't ask for more. This show represents what cartoons are about. good against evil. drama and full of action.cartoons today just dont get it. I know the japanese version is alot more violent so american audiences wouldn't let the kids watch but they cut it up just right. I wish they would let the series out a lot faster but i understand it takes a lot of time to restore the show and the sound. OK but get the vehicle voltron out as soon as possible. I remember as a kid i didn't get to see enough of that series.Anyway good job on the DVDs true fans will not be let down.

The first disc was damaged. The back of the disc looks like a snowflake was scratched into it. You can not watch even the first episode.

My kids were so excited. It is too repetitive. However, i like having a classic entertainment around. My youngest watched one disc with me.
