[018]: Original Series Associate Producer John Teichmann

Podcast cover
Read more

Welcome Back, Jeremy Corray! You will find Jeremy and John Teichmann have a lot in common in this episode, as we go back in time to when the first tapes were delivered to WEP, and an innocent mistake in shipping led to Voltron: Defender of the Universe.

Original Series Associate Producer John Teichmann gives Marc and Jeremy a first-hand account of what it was like to be involved with the Voltron phenomenon from the beginning, and what keeps people talking about it to this very day.

John identifies some of the key features that made broadcasters buy into the Voltron promise, including excellent stereo sound by Paul Vitello and his team, superior music by John Petersen and Dale Schacker, and great writing by Jameson Brewer, Marc Handler, and the rest of the writing team.

John gives insight into a side of the Voltron story we had not ever heard before, and details what he has been doing since Voltron finished its original television run in 1986.

All we can say is, when do we get to see Albegas?

Thanks for listening!

Podcast cover
Read more

Our special guest is Jason Sperling, Chief Creative Development for RPA, the ad agency responsible for the Happy Honda Days ad that featured the classic Voltron Matchbox die-cast toy, and included the original voices from Neil Ross, Michael Bell, BJ Ward and Jack Angel. After all that fun, Marc and Greg review the final 2 episodes of Season 7 of Voltron Legendary Defender, Lions' Pride Part 1 & 2.

Jason Sperling, Chief Creative Development for RPA, talks about how the Voltron Happy Honda Days ad came together, how the idea of using nostalgic toys to sell cars came to be, and what other things RPA has been involved with. One special thing that RPA is proud to be a part of, is the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation, and they have been trying to help provide more resources for kids who have been diagnosed with brain tumors. RPA partnered with 23 animation studios, to create 23 different animated short films around each topic related to pediatric brain tumors. These short films are available in hospital networks around the world, in over 85 countries, and in 12 different languages.

You can go to https://www.imaginaryfriendsociety.com/ to learn more about these wonderful animated short films and how they are helping kids with pediatric brain tumors.

Voltron Legendary Defender SDCC Panel Review

Podcast cover
Read more

Dani DeWald, Voltron Superfan and panel videographer at SDCC, joins Marc and Greg to review her coverage of the Voltron Legendary Defender panel at San Diego Comic-Con. We walk through the entire panel, and give commentary on all the clips, Q & A, and review the Season 1 Soundtrack that was recently released on iTunes. Plus, you need to listen closely to find out how to win variant cover copies of Voltron Legendary Defender #1 Comic, signed by authors Tim Hedrick and Mitch Iverson.

The DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender panel at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) included panelists Joaquim Dos Santos (Executive Producer), Lauren Montgomery (C0-Executive Producer), and Tim Hedrick (Head Writer). A surprise panelist was added, which makes the audience go crazy! Steven Yeun, who plays Keith, Voltron paladin and pilot of Red Lion, was on the panel and shared his perspective of Season 1 of Voltron Legendary Defender.

During the panel review, one of the Q & A questions was if we'd ever hear the original Voltron theme from 1984 used in the new show. Legally, they can't use the original theme in this show, and the producers let the audience know that you will not be hearing the original theme music in this show. So, now that this question is definitively laid to rest, let's celebrate the music of the first season of Voltron Legendary Defender, which is now available as a digital download on iTunes at:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/dreamworks-voltron-legendary/id1133408932

Thank you to the creator of the Voltron Legendary Defender theme, Alex Geringas, and the show's musical composers, Brad Breeck and Brian Parkhurst, for this wonderful album of music compiled from the first season of our favorite show on Netflix.

Would you like to win 2 variant copies of Lion Forge's Voltron Legendary Defender #1 Comic Book, signed by authors Tim Hedrick and Mitch Iverson? We had the SDCC Exclusive Variant Cover and the other Variant Cover signed at SDCC by both Tim and Mitch and the Lion Forge Comics booth. Only 1 winner, and yes, you can be anywhere in the world and we'll ship them to you!

To be eligible to have a random chance to win, you need to Tweet @LetsVoltron a picture of our "Let's Voltron: The Official Voltron Podcast" 8-bit logo or the name, "Let's Voltron" with some of your favorite Voltron gear. You can put the hashtag - #LetsVoltron - on the tweet. Get creative! You only have 1 week from the time of this podcast episode's release. So, entries have to be tweeted in by the end of day, August 7, 2016. We will choose 1 random entry from all the eligible tweets. Your twitter name will be announced as the winner on our Twitter and Facebook pages. Good luck, Voltron Fans!

Neil Kaplan (Emperor Zarkon in Voltron Legendary Defender) met up with us on the street at SDCC and told us the stories about some of the fans he interacted in line outside of the Voltron panel room 7 AB, and the fact that he and hundreds of fans did not get into the panel! Here's a picture Marc had with Neil:

And here's a picture of the Space Mice stickers that people who asked questions at the panel were given as a thank you for their questions:

And of course, the biggest piece of news on the planet is that we will be seeing Season 2 of Voltron Legendary Defender by Late 2016 on Netflix, according to the panelists at SDCC, and we can't wait! Thanks to the Voltron Fans that have watched this show (some people like Dani have seen the full 1st season 23 times!) and have made it so popular! Thanks to you, we are getting more seasons of this wonderful animated series.

Another great season of comic book and fandom conventions is upon us, so Marc took advantage to have an interview with Voltron's Lance and Sven, Michael Bell, at RetroCon in Oaks, PA. Meanwhile, down in Atlanta, RetroBlasting presented a panel on "The History of Voltron" at DragonCon. There's plenty more Voltron in this episode, including some words from the fans.

Kicking off the episode, Marc mentions that Voltron: From the Ashes - Issue #1 - was released on September 16th. Issue #2 will be released on October 21st. There are several positive reviews of the comic book from comic book blogs like:

Bounding Into Comics - http://boundingintocomics.com/2015/09/15/comic-book-review-voltron-from-the-ashes-1/


Graphic Policy - [http://graphicpolicy.com/2015/09/07/review-voltron-from-the-ashes-1/][2]


Comic Wow! - [https://www.comicwow.com/blogs/1/3390/voltron-from-the-ashes-1-comic][3]

Marc will try to get the Alex Milne black and white variant cover at the Dynamite booth at New York Comic Con. Dynamite has also said they would have it available at Baltimore Comic Con, which is coming soon.

A new product that became available on Voltron.com is the Voltron Defender Mug by Zak. It is dishwasher and microwave safe, BPA Free, and it's only 10 bucks.

As mentioned in this podcast, Saber Rider and the Star Sherriffs has a Kickstarter campaign that ends on Oct. 5, 2015 at 6 AM ET. Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs is an all-new 2D 16-Bit style run'n'gun shoot-'em-up including giant Mecha action, based upon the original series from 1986 for Nintendo 3DS, Steam (PC, MAC, Linux), Sega Dreamcast and PC Engine. To be able to pledge an amount to get your desired reward (by Nov 2016), please go to Kickstarter at https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/saberridergame/saber-rider-and-the-star-sheriffs-the-video-game to submit your pledge. They are more than two-thirds of the way toward their $75,000 goal. Help them reach that goal!

Here are some pictures of Marc with Michael Bell at RetroCon. There is also a picture of the RetroCon Auction winners with all the voice actors, including (from the left) Doug Stone, Michael Bell, John Moschitta, Jr., and Michael McConnohie. Rose Tuski, one of the organizers of RetroCon, is kneeling in the front.

Here are some of the items on Michael Bell's table that he had for people to sign. Unfortunately, he had not brought any Voltron pictures with Lance or Sven.

Voltron: From the Ashes - Cullen Bunn and Blacky Shepherd

Podcast cover
Read more

Cullen Bunn (Writer) and Blacky Shepherd (Artist) join Marc to discuss the release of Voltron: From the Ashes, a new 6-issue comic book series from Dynamite Entertainment. The 1st Issue is being released on September 16th, and Cullen and Blacky tell us as much as they can without spoiling it for anyone.

Cullen and Blacky seem to have come from the same mold, despite growing up in different areas, which makes them perfect collaborators for this Voltron comic book series. We talk about their love of giant robots, Micronauts, the horror genre, and classic japanese anime, as well as the influences that have brought them to where they are today.

Obviously, you are going to get to hear more than you've ever heard before about Voltron: From the Ashes, without getting spoiled or upsetting the editors at Dynamite Entertainment. Keep this in mind: this is the same classic Voltron look, but a completely fresh take on Voltron with a new team, 200 years after the original team of Lance, Keith, Allura, Pidge and Hunk.

Cullen Bunn

Cullen Bunn is an accomplished writer for comics, short stories, and novels. Known for his work on comic books such as Deadpool Kills the Marvel Universe for Marvel Comics, and The Damned and The Sixth Gun for Oni Press, his work also includes the middle reader horror series Crooked Hills and his short story work includes the anthology collection Creeping Stones & Other Stories.

In this podcast, Cullen also mentions his current Comic for Dark Horse Comics, called Harrow County, and Blood Feud, a novella from Oni Press.

In 2011 Bunn was nominated for a Ghastly Award, and won Broken Frontier's Best Writer Independent Award. In 2012 he was nominated for a Bram Stoker Award and an Eisner Award.

If you want to see more of Cullen's work, you can go to his personal website at: http://www.cullenbunn.com

He is on Twitter: @cullenbunn

He also has a Facebook Page: http://facebook.com/cullenbunn

Blacky Shepherd

Blacky Shepherd is known for being an artist of comics and pin-ups. He started his own kickstarter project for "Blacky's Beauties". In comics, he started doing ‘Vampirella: Feary Tales’ pencils for Dynamite Comics, and is now working on Voltron: From the Ashes. This talented artist isn't stopping there. You'll be seeing more work from him in the future.

Blacky's personal website is: http://www.cqshep.com

We'll be talking to these guys again in a future podcast to review some of the issues of Voltron: From the Ashes, after they are released.

Marc brings in Talley LaFlamme, Tara Scully, and Greg Tyler to have a roundtable discussion about how everyone reacted to the announcement of a new Voltron show. We talk about EVERYTHING. What are the best parts of Voltron that should be present in any Voltron show? What are we looking forward to the most that comes with a new show, like merchandise, toys, apps and video games? What will DreamWorks Animation and Netflix have to do to make this show last?

Here is the announcement that was sent in email for subscribers to Voltron.com:

**Today (Jan 5, 2016) our friends at DreamWorks Animation announced an all-new Voltron series coming to Netflix in 2016.

Podcast cover

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:

[022]: Defender of the Universe!

Podcast cover
Read more

Marc Morrell and Special Guest Host Dan Jolley review 4 more episodes from the Original Lion Force Voltron Series, where they provide comparisons with the GoLion episodes from which these Voltron episodes were made. Dan provides a unique perspective, since he has watched these episodes as a fan when he was a kid, then watched these episodes as an adult writer, and had to research these episodes again as a writer of Voltron Comics for Devil's Due Publishing.

If you recall, we haven't reviewed the Original Series Voltron Episodes since Podcast #15. We finished reviewing Episode 8 The Stolen Lion (Stolen Blue Lion) during that podcast. So, this podcast episode covers the following Original Series Voltron episodes (Beast King GoLion episode titles in parenthesis):

9 – A Pretty Spy (Girl of the Land of Evil)

10 – Secret of the White Lion (Curse of the White Lion)

11 - Surrender (Red Rain of Hell)

12 - Bad Birthday Party (Evil Doings of the Emperor)

Listen as Marc brings back Dan Jolley, our special guest from Podcast #7, to discuss the differences between the Voltron and GoLion versions of these 4 episodes. This story arc shows that Princess Allura is still unsure of herself in her role on the team. It also shows that Voltron is not always the one who saves the day.

Marc closes out the episode with a preview of upcoming episodes, including a surprise episode from San Diego Comic-Con, a Vehicle Voltron episode, and possibly, an interview with one of the voice actors from the original Voltron Series.

[014]: Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con Recap

Podcast cover
Read more

Marc gets the lowdown from Mike about everything VOLTRON that happened at the Wizard World St. Louis Comic Con, including two panels and a booth, hosted by World Events Productions.

Mike goes into great detail about the process of setting up the booth on the convention floor, and what products were available to Voltron fans, including the opening of the Toynami 30th Anniversary Voltron for the first time! Mike also let us know what types of questions fans had when they came by the WEP booth.

Marc asks Mike to take us through both of the panels. Saturday's panel was the 30th Anniversary Celebration panel which was kicked off with a special new 30th Anniversary Voltron Compilation video, edited by our own Michael French. That really got the fans going! Watch the video here.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/6DRQkzuC2oc?wmode=opaque&enablejsapi=1

As fans lined up to ask questions at the panel, the first question was about the live-action movie, which was also a common question at the Voltron booth. Mike and Marc talk about this at length during the podcast.

There were many products that were mentioned during the panel, including the Toynami 30th Anniversary Voltron, T-Shirts, Hoodies, Hockey Jerseys, and more, and even products that didn't make the cut, like the Voltron Form Blazing Sword Boxer Shorts.

Also debuting for the first time ever was the Let's Voltron Podcast trailer, made by our own Marc Morrell. Fan response was great, and people were given postcards at the WEP booth, similar to the cards that were sent to some of the people that have participated in the podcast. Watch the Let's Voltron trailer.

https://www.youtube.com/embed/ENm5JIo0CQM?wmode=opaque&enablejsapi=1

We had talked during the podcast about making the Pop Culture Video available as a link on this notes page, but that video is something that will only be shown as an exclusive for Voltron Panels at the conventions. So, if you want to see that, you should try to make your way to either San Diego Comic Con in July or New York Comic Con in October.

Michael also talked about the Kids Panel that was geared to the younger Voltron fans on Sunday.

Marc and Greg were happy to kick off the festivities even before the opening ceremonies with a Voltron 101 Panel. Our friend, Dani DeWald was so gracious and recorded the whole panel and posted it on YouTube! Go check it out HERE!

After that, Marc and Greg took the stage again for the History of Voltron Toys panel.

Following Marc and Greg were Bob Koplar and Jeremy Corray to talk about Voltron Force. This panel answered a lot of fan questions about why Voltron Force did not get a second season, and Voltron fans were told what the future of the Voltron franchise might be.

There were many great vendors in the "Space Mall", including the Voltron Store, and many great cosplayers, wearing many original character designs from their favorite Voltron series.

In our Retro Voltron segment, Greg reviews another episode that celebrated a holiday in the original series, Voltron: Defender of the Universe, the 67th episode, Doom Girls on the Prowl.

Here is a summary of that episode and some screenshots:

Haggar tries to send a baby Ro-beast after Queen Merla, but Merla's pet buzzard catches it. Haggar apologizes, and offers to help Merla conquer Arus. Meanwhile, on Arus, there is a parade taking place honoring the planet's leaders. Merla's forces attack. Keith and Allura try to get the villagers to safety, while Lance, Hunk, and Pidge race to get to their lions. In protecting the villagers, Lance, Hunk, and Pidge get zapped with a freeze ray, and their lions are sent over a cliff, and to the bottom of a canyon. After getting the villagers to the castle, Haggar makes her baby Ro-beast turn into a full sized one, and sicks it on the castle. With the other three frozen, Keith and Allura have to face the monster by themselves. At the end, all of the Voltron Force has statues made of them by the kids they had saved earlier in the episode, and King Alfor's ghost shows his approval of Keith.
