Voltron III

Why is this the third Voltron when the Japanese version & American version both had this being the first one? --Revan's Exile 04:23, June 17, 2011 (UTC)

Voltron came together haphazardly. WEP chose 3 completely unrelated Japanese shows to translate. Voltron 1, 2, and 3 were to be from the near, middle, and far universe. They started with the Lion one because they thought it looked the most appealing, and the setting made it appropriate to put into the far universe. The relative failure of Vehicle Voltron (which was 1/near-universe) compared to Lion Voltron caused them to not make a third Voltron show (though they did make toys).
If you haven't seen Staff Interviews: The Birth of Voltron, you should, it's really interesting. It's an extra on the Vol 1 (Blue Lion) DVD set. I suspect it's in one of the later 2-volume sets too. --GrantB 16:11, July 14, 2011 (UTC)
