Marc takes Let's Voltron "on the road" to the worldwide debut of the Voltron: Legendary Defender cast and crew at WonderCon, with exclusive interviews. You get to listen to Greg's reactions to hearing these interviews for the very first time.
Let's Voltron Host, Marc Morrell, took a trip to Los Angeles, California with his wife, Kim (official photographer/videographer), to capture the DreamWorks Animation panel and interviews for Voltron: Legendary Defender. In Part 1 of 2, you will hear Marc recall the experience of WonderCon, and the exuberance of Voltron fans that attended the panel that introduced the world to the cast and crew of Voltron: Legendary Defender, due to come out with an initial block of 13 episodes on June 10th on Netflix. For co-host, Greg Tyler, who is hearing all these interviews for the first time, this podcast gives his genuine reactions to what the cast and crew had to say at WonderCon, after the panel that just exploded like Voltron slicing through robeasts with Blazing Sword.
While Marc was at WonderCon, he got to meet face-to-face for the first time with previous podcast guests, Blacky Shepherd and Steven E. Gordon. These Voltron meetups are one of the favorite things for Marc to do as a host of the podcast. You can privately contact either of these great artists through Facebook or Twitter to commision them for a personal Voltron artwork of your choosing.
Marc also visited the Sideshow Collectibles booth, where a finished Prototype of the Voltron Maquette was on display, in all of it's colorful glory. The price and date of sale are all "To Be Decided" (TBD), but here are the pictures we promised in close up detail.
In the podcast, Greg mentions the Mighty Fine T-shirts that Marc picked up for him at the We Love Fine booth. These were WonderCon exclusives for the new Voltron show, and you can now get them yourself (for $25 each) at these links:

Marc announced in this podcast that we will be revealing the winner of a Voltron: Legendary Defender lithograph, signed by the whole cast and crew of the Netflix series that were at the panel at WonderCon. From all of people who submitted questions to our email that were asked to the talent and showrunners of Voltron: Legendary Defender, we will pick one winner at random.
