East vs West – Golion/Dairugger XV/Voltron
In 1984, World Events Productions took two unrelated anime shows, 1981’s King of a Hundred Beasts Golion and 1982’s Armored Fleet Dairugger XV, and turned them into Voltron. Let’s compare!
Original Golion opening song – unfortunately I can’t find a clip of the opening sequence.
Voltron’s Lion Force opening
Golion combination – the song is about the Blue Lion
Alternate combination – showing this because this particular sequence is seen in the Golion opening that I couldn’t find on youtube…
Dairugger XV opening – long introductory narration – also includes the combo sequence…
Voltron Vehicle Team Opening
Voltron Vehicle Team combination 1
And just for fun: the japanese toy commercials!
Voltron Vehicle Team combination 2 – which I included because it is much more awesome.
