Episode Notes

You are getting a special treat as Marc and Greg interview the LEGO Ideas Voltron Project Designer Lendy Tayag, whose Voltron LEGO Idea achieved 10,000 supporters in 22 days, and is now awaiting review in September. Addendum: The full-length Voltron Legendary Defender Trailer is discussed as well.

Lendy Tayag is an IT professional from The Philippines who used LEGO Designer, an application that has all the possible LEGO pieces, to build his own Voltron set, including 5 robot lions that combine to form the giant robot. It comes with 6 Pilot mini-figs and a Blazing Sword and shield.

This set has the 10,000 supporters needed to reach the review phase of the LEGO Ideas site. The next review period is in September, and we are anxiously waiting to hear if this Voltron set will get approved to be manufactured as a set by LEGO.

In this podcast, you'll hear Lendy tell Marc and Greg everything that went into his design of Voltron, and how he thought he'd have up to a year to fine-tune his design, but of course, only had several days.

Also in this podcast, there is an added recording of Marc and Greg talking about the full-length Voltron Legendary Defender trailer that was released by DreamWorks on Wednesday. As we learned, the first 3 episodes of the series are themed as an hour-long movie, called “The Rise of Voltron.” Here is a link to the trailer they are talking about:

Marc and Greg will break down this trailer in more detail on the next podcast after this one.

Marc had also mentioned that today, Friday the 13th of May, marks the release of Dan Jolley's novel, Gray Widow's Walk. Gray Widow's Walk is the first book in the Gray Widow Trilogy, and is available May 13 from Seventh Star Press.
