- Basic Review

    If you're familiar with my DVD reviews, or if you happen to have these DVDs yourself, you may know how strongly I feel about the voice actor narration and how obnoxious it is. Well, that just got ten times worse with Stinger narrating Volume 10.

    Not only is his voice horribly grinding, but the DVDs basic descriptions fail to impress me. Even so, this DVD has the same bonus features as most of the others. Character and Zoid reviews.

-Box Details

(The description below are those presented on the box)


    A completely new ZOIDS called the "Death Stinger," demonstrates its formidable power against the Guardian Forces, causing irreparable damage to the Geno Saurer. The mastermind behind this scheme, Hillz, wants to destroy the Republic. Will the capital survive?

Additional Details:

    The back of the box advertises the "Power Kong", one of the Zoids that was allegedly designed by Hasbro during its last days. While I believe a few of these Power Zoids got out on the market, I don't believe this one ever did. This makes it an interesting choice to advertise on the back of the box.

-Episode Summaries
