Voltron: The Third Dimension - Voltron: Fleet of Doom - Netflix
Voltron: Fleet of Doom was a television special involving heroes of both Voltron series working together to defeat their sworn enemy, King Zarkon who aligns with the Drule Empire to create a mighty armada called the Fleet of Doom. This movie was released later on DVD by the company originally responsible for taking the Japanese source material and bringing it to American audiences, World Events Productions (WEP). Fleet of Doom was intended to explain the transition from Lion Force Voltron (GoLion in Japan) to Vehicle Force Voltron (Armored Fleet Dairugger XV) and hence represents the only time in the show’s animated history where the two incarnations of the giant robot appear together (since the source material was derived from two entirely separate animated shows in Japan). However, the movie was not televised until after the series had been canceled, forming more of an epilogue than a transition.
Voltron: The Third Dimension - Home video releases and availability - Netflix
The animated special Fleet of Doom has become a collector’s ambition, only further sought out because WEP has not included it in any of the Voltron DVD box sets it has released. Fleet of Doom was released by WEP as an online exclusive and later was updated to have better DVD compatibility as there were many complaints about using the menu with older DVD players and that the editing was extremely poor with very long timeouts between the commercial breaks; additional trailers were also included. This updated version was made available by WEP on Amazon.com and is also still available on the Voltron store. Media Blasters released the special as a general release on July 28, 2009. This version was not part of the Voltron DVD box sets but as a stand-alone title. In late 2010, Media Blasters announced a Blu-ray Disc release of Fleet of Doom, only to cancel it in early 2011. Nevertheless, copies of this Blu-ray edition began to become available in various internet shops as of September 2011, and it was eventually determined that these copies were genuine. however, it is unknown if an official release of this Blu-ray is planned.
