Format: DVD
In September 2006, Media Blasters, in conjunction with World Events Productions, is releasing Voltron: Defender of the Universe on a series of Special Edition DVD boxed sets. Each set will contain about 15 episodes, all with a newly remastered 5.1 audio (created just for this release) and remastered video.

In addition to original character sketches, TV ads, and news footage, the DVDs will contain new extras created "with help from the original producers and staff." This will reportedly contain never-before-seen interviews that have been previously created over the years, but never made available to the public before.

In 2007, Media Blasters is also planning to release the original uncut Japanese version of Voltron, under the original translation title "Hundred Beast King GoLion" and the Japan-only sequel series under the translated name "Armored Squadron Dairugger XV" on DVD starting next year. They both will be uncut and subtitled - which is perfect for all of the hardcore anime fans out there. We get the original series they way we remembered it, and the way it appered on Japan TV - with subtitles - plus the official 52 episode sequal series to the original Voltron (which never was released outside of Japan in any form).

Originally, "Hyakujuu Ou Golion" ran in Japan for 52 episodes from 1981-82, but when it was released in the USA as Voltron in 1984, the show's popularity was so immense that World Events Productions commissioned Toei Animation (the original creators) to produce 20 more episodes exclusively for the western audience. I really can't say enough positive coments about Voltron, but it had me memorised as a kid. As popular as Transformers and G.I.

Picking up where Voltron - Collection One left off with the next 15 episodes in the series (note the continuing disc and episode numbering), "Voltron: Defender of the Universe - Collection Two: Yellow Lion" is a 3-disc (350 min.) set featuring digitally remastered Lion Force Season One episodes 16-30. The set comes in a "[Yellow] Lion's head" special molded tin; features Full Frame (1.33:1) video, English Dolby 5.1 audio; and is the 2nd of 8 "Voltron" DVDs (5 Lion Force, 3 Vehicle Team) planned for release by Media Blasters. Also of fun note is that at the time Collection Two was first announced, Media Blasters confirmed that the Lion head tins would release in the order in which the lions form Voltron in the show: Blue & Yellow [the feet & legs], Green & Red [the arms & body], and Black lion [the head]. As with the previous collection, fans are sure to be pleased by all the work put into this continuing set. Here are how the discs will be configured, plus a list of extras:
