World Events Productions is an American-based animation and distribution copany, best known for releasing the anime title Voltron: Defender of the Universe.
In 1983, while attending a science fiction convention. WEP president Ted Koplar saw footage of some Japanese anime series that he and his team believed, once translated into English, could appeal to a North American audience.
A deal was made for WEP to examine three series. Mirai Robo Daltanious, Albegas, and Armored Fleet Dairugger XV. However the WEP team was accidentally sent Beast King Golion instead of Daltanius. Upon viewing GoLion, Koplar, decided that it had the most promise.
