Okay, I just noticed this today at work. Voltron is out on DVD! Or at least the first of five sets of Voltron is on DVD right now.

The first set is the Blue Lion set, with episodes 1-15 for $26. Presumably, it will be followed with the Red/Green/Yellow/Black Lion sets with the rest of the series.

However, just to throw a kind in things, there is a collector's edition of each one coming out as well. Thing is, I can't tell what the differance between the two is, aside from the case. Both have the same run time, but one has a shipping weight of .18 pounds, the other at .87 pounds. Thats a big weight differance. What I've seen online says that the collector's edition will come in a molded tin shaped like that lion's head that will be stackable with each other.

Thing is, I don't know if the tin case alone is enough to quadruple the shipping weight, and I don't really think an ugly molded tin (sorry, I hate those shaped tins) is worth the $10 price differance.

Anybody know if there is something else the collector's edition offers?

    Those are the differences: Different colors, and one a regular edition, and the other is a special edition. is the special one an extended version or something?

      Thats just it, the running time for the collector's edition is exactly the same as the regular edition (375 minutes, I think it was). I don't wanna buy the standard edition just to turn around and have something insanely cool (like a little replica lion in each case that you can snap together to form Voltron if you get all 5 sets) come out in the collector's edition the next week.

        I bought the entire series of Lion Force in 5 box sets last year. The Australian release has some seriously cool special features. On one of the discs in the first set, there's a montage of 'Voltron fever' which includes some of those reports that news stations do around Christmas time on what toys are 'hot' that year.

          i don't know whats in it, but the tin case is cool, I had it in my hands at the mall. I didn't buy it because they wanted 45 bucks for it, i knew that was way over priced.

          It is pretty heavy though, so who knows.

          Oh and yellow lion is out for preorder already.

            They do know they could get sued for that, right? The collector's edition has Sept. 26th as the street date. The distributor finds out the store is breaking street date, and things could get unpleasant for them.

                It is out for preorder, not for purchasing. Meaning that you can order it now, and when it is released, probly on or around Sept 26, it would be shipped to you

                            Blue Lion is already out in standard edition. We are talking about the COLLECTOR'S edition, which isn't out until the 26th.

                                Does the collector's edition cost more?
