Gregory Tyler was co-host with Marc on episodes 26 and 27 of Let's Voltron, when we discussed Vehicle Team Voltron in great detail. Now, we catch up on his 3D-printed Panosh Place style Vehicle Voltron project and learn some behind the scenes motion capture techniques that made the character movements so real. Thanks for joining us on the podcast again, Greg!

Shannon Muir has been a Voltron Fan since Day 1 and credits Voltron for inspiring her career in writing and animation production, and she was the creator of the Denubian Star Map, that was actually used by WEP for helping make sense of the Voltron Universe.
