In this podcast, we get a quote from Bob Koplar about Voltron in Ready Player One, which was exciting to see. We also read a couple more fan emails about Season 5, talk about the Castleships in Retro Voltron, and we review Voltron Legendary Defender Season 5: Episode 2: Blood Duel.
If you have seen Ready Player One, then you know the final battle scene took place on Planet Doom (Zarkon's home planet in Voltron: Defender of the Universe), and the ends credits display "Courtesy of WEP, LLC", so we have a quote from Bob Koplar, President of WEP (World Events Productions), the owner of Voltron.
Marc talks about the great dinner with Voltron friends at the Jazz Kitchen in Downtown Disney, when Marc and Kim were at WonderCon. Thanks to Shamus, Blacky, Nigel, Shannon, Kevin, Dani, Eric, Jody, and Kim for that wonderful time with friends!
Greg gives us an update on Playmates Toys for Voltron Legendary Defender.
Congrats to Bex Taylor-Klaus for getting a tattoo of Rover, which was featured in a Bex takeover of the VoltronOfficial Instagram account! Rover and Pidge will forever be linked together!
We read 2 more emails from podcast listeners, covering thoughts on Season 5. The Voltron Signature Prize Pack giveaway entry deadline has passed, so we will be announcing the winner of that prize pack a few podcasts from now.
