We couldn't wait to talk about everything Voltron that happened at San Diego Comic-Con, and since Greg was not able to attend, he is experiencing the whole story, interviews, panel and all, just like the listeners of this podcast.

But while Marc (and his wife Kim), Shambhavi, Shamus, and Dani were all in San Diego, Greg was creating his own magic, putting together a great video review of the Voltron Legendary Defender Metal Defender Series Diecast Lions Set. You can watch Greg's very thorough review on our YouTube Channel!

Here are some pics from our trip to San Diego Comic-Con:

We also announced the 2 winners of a Voltron SDCC Prize Pack. Each prize pack has 8 prizes, including the previously mentioned Voltron Legendary Defender Metal Defender Series Diecast Lions Set, 2 Voltron Legendary Defender Chapter Books from Simon & Schuster, a signed lithograph of Season 2 characters, signed by Joaquim Dos Santos, Lauren Montgomery, Bex Taylor-Klaus, and Tyler Labine, 2 Let's Voltron stickers signed by 1 of the 4 cast and crew just mentioned, a large Voltron poster from Lion Forge Comics, a Voltron hand-held mask, and a Voltron poster from Toys-R-Us. You won't see the winners' names here - you'll have to listen to the podcast to see if you were announced as a winner.

On July 28th, to celebrate Lance's birthday, Jeremy Shada was interviewed on Facebook LIVE for a Q&A, where he answered fan questions, had some donut cake, saw some fan art that fans had made for Lance, and received a set of the Voltron Legendary Defender Metal Defender Series Lions from Playmates Toys. Here's a few pictures from that event:

On our next podcast, we are happy to announce we will be interviewing the newest cast member of Voltron Legendary Defender, the voice of Prince Lotor, AJ LoCascio.

Don't forget to watch ALL NEW Voltron Legendary Defender Season 3 Episodes starting this Friday, August 4th on Netflix!!

In the wake of Zarkon’s defeat and Shiro’s disappearance, the paladins struggle to move forward with no one able to pilot the black lion or the ability to form Voltron. The team must quickly devise a plan as the ascension of Prince Lotor and his generals pulls the team into a perilous game of cat-and-mouse that tests their unity and abilities more than ever before.

Here's a brand new trailer to get you excited for FRIDAY on Netflix:

Finally, we want to honor a very special person who just announced she's retiring: Voltron Legendary Defender Voice Director Andrea Romano. Her retirement was announced in a story that was released by IGN.

Marc and Greg had the amazing fortune to watch Andrea Romano working her magic at a recording session last April, just before WonderCon 2017. To see the legendary Andrea Romano directing world class voice actors like Jeremy Shada and Kimberly Brooks at a sound studio in Burbank, CA was a dream come true, and has now become a major highlight in our lives. Marc has also had the pleasure of interviewing Andrea Romano several times at red carpet events and conventions over the last 7 years.
