The second-to-last set of Lion Force Voltron

This set includes fourteen episodes of the Lion Force Voltron series. These are the final seven episodes adapted from the Beast King GoLion episodes, and the first seven episodes that were produced by World Events Productions for a second season of Lion Force Voltron.

On this set, there are five items in the "Special Features" menu. The first is labeled, "Voice Actor Interviews." Neil Ross, BJ Ward, and Michael Bell were interviewed for this feature. They talked about how they auditioned, what characters they portrayed, the recording process, how they developed their characters, and remembering cast member Lennie Weinrib (who had passed away while the Lion Force Voltron DVD sets were being released).

The next feature is labeled, "Season Three Featurette." This piece includes interviews with Franklin Cofod, Marc Handler, Peter Keefe, and Bill England. This featurette explains why World Events Productions produced new Lion Force Voltron episodes instead of dubbing Albegas (a third robot series they had acquired the rights for). They also talk about how they got several staff members from the original Beast King GoLion series to produce the new episodes, and explain the process that was used to produce the new episodes. The featurette ends with talking about the two new characters (Cossack and Merla) that were introduced in the new Lion Force Voltron episodes.

The next feature is "Man on the Street: Voltron Memories." These are "man on the street" interviews conducted by Jeremy Corray. He went around the streets of St. Louis and randomly asked people if they remembered Voltron. Unfortunately, most of the people interviewed seemed to only have really vague memories of the show, and were more likely than not to give absolutely wrong information.

The "Gallery 1984" feature is a slideshow of production art, stills from the show, pictures from the Voltron Express event, and pictures of Ted Koplar and Peter Keefe sititng at a table with Voltron toys. Unfortunately, there's no way for the viewer to control how quickly the pictures go through the slideshow. The final feature on the set are trailers for other properties released by AnimeWorks.

For fans of Voltron, this set allows you to obtain more episodes of the Lion Force Voltron series for your DVD collection. The first couple of special features on this set are pretty decent, but the others are a disappointment. Even with that flaw, this set is still worth owning, especially if you are a Voltron fan.
