Goofs

In order to activate the Lions, each team member had to insert a special key. In many instances when Chief is starting the Golion forming sequence, his key can still be seen on his tunic, but then is also seen on the panel of his lion, and then moves in the same way - left to right - as it already did when first being used to activate the Black Lion.

A sentai anime story of a revived five-lion robot, who with his pure-hearted pilots fight against the evil Galra Empire.
23 July 1999 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The original series of Lion Force Voltron is much better, because Lion Force Voltron is hacked to pieces, scenes censored, violence toned-down, altered dialogue, and worst of all bad voice acting! Beast King Go-lion is way better than its dub for the following reasons: people get killed; people die, and best of all Go-lion is dark and more realistic than that silly dub Voltron.

Forget about Voltron, and be a REAL anime fan. Watch the "real thing" instead. Watch Beast King Go-lion!
