Voltron Lion Force Beginnings
“Ready to form Voltron!”
the 80’s. Back when cartoons were awesome! It’s disappointing to see
what cartoons kids watch these days. I remember growing up and being
able to watch so many great shows, which I have very fond memories of.
Transformers, G.I. Joe, Robotech, Thundercats
and of course, Voltron: Defender of the Universe.
Voltron: Defender of the Universe tells the story of a specially
trained super force of space explorers, sent by the Galaxy Alliance to
search the universe for the legendary super robot, Voltron, which they
can use to battle the evil King Zarkon and his Drule Empire that
threatens the galaxy. Their search leads them to Planet Arus, ruled by
Princess Allura. Here they find the five mythical robot lions that come
together to form the mighty Voltron. The team soon become The Voltron
Force and pledge themselves to the protection of Planet Arus against
King Zarkon, his son Prince Lotor and the evil witch Hagar.
Voltron - Lion Force: Beginnings is a perfect introduction to the
fan favourite series! With 18 episodes across two discs, it’s a great
way for newcomers or people with general interest in the show to become
acquainted of the retro 80’s series. The episodes included are a
compilation from across the entire series, so if you are expecting any
sort of continuity, then this isn’t for you, but for people who grew up
with the series and want to show it to their own children, then you
can’t go wrong with this two disc set!
the episode quality, we aren’t treated to anything special. These are
the best the episodes have ever looked, but that’s only because of the
DVD format. Note, this isn’t a digitally remastered set, so picture
quality and sound are as you watched them way back in the late 80’s,
only with the thanks of the digital age to show these episodes at their
best, but hey, we’re not complaining, this is Voltron we’re
talking about! We children of the 80’s appreciate them as they are,
because you can’t beat those fond memories.
“Mega-thrusters are go!”
is a decent collection, bare of extras, but really, this is just an
introduction set. I would love to see some kids of today take a look at
this series and others from that time. They might just be happy that
their parents showed it to them.
“Let’s go, Voltron Force!”
