Greg Tyler officially becomes the new co-host with Marc Morrell, as they welcome Jonathan Shykofsky to the podcast to talk about TRENDMASTERS Prototype Toys, especially the ones from Voltron: The Third Dimension.
Before Marc and Greg interview Jonathan Shykofsky, they talk about a few current events happening with Voltron.
1 - Deadpool is a Voltron Fan!
2 - Voltron: Legendary Defender is the name of the Voltron series on Netflix, coming later this year. Nerdist broke with an exclusive story, including a poster that includes a logo for the show, and a silhouette of Voltron in the background.
3 - It was announced at New York Toy Fair 2016 that Playmates Toys would launch the toy line for Voltron: Legendary Defender in Spring 2017.
Jonathan Shykofsky tells us about his background as an animator for Arthur and Caillou, before becoming a TRENDMASTERS Prototype Toy Collector, thanks to Slimer, Godzilla, Osmosis Jones and Iron Giant. Jonathan has great stories to tell about his passion for researching, finding and acquiring the whole TRENDMASTERS line of prototypes, many that came from the original designers themselves.
The Voltron: The Third Dimension show spawned a number of prototypes that never made it into production, including Dracotron and Voltrex Cycles. We'd like to share with you a number of pictures that Jonathan has graciously allowed us to post on this page:
