For those of you who don’t know yet, back in December of 2013, Let’s Voltron: The Official Voltron Podcast began airing episodes on iTunes and LetsVoltron.com (Part of the The Orange FM Podcast Network). The host of the show is ToonBarn Head Writer Marc Morrell, who started the show with Jeremy Corray. Jeremy was Creative Director of World Events Productions at the time. At the beginning of 2014, Jeremy had left WEP to pursue another position (VP of Digital Entertainment at Coolfire Studios). Jeremy handed the social media reigns for WEP over to RetroBlasting’s Michael French, who also became the co-host of the Let’s Voltron Podcast. Jeremy occasionally joins Marc and Michael as a guest host from time to time.

NYCC: Voltron 30th Anniversary Preview Panel

Voltron-panel-logo

From days of long ago… September 10, 1984, to be precise. That was when Space Explorers Captured (Golion name: Escape from Slave Castle), the very first Voltron: Defender of the Universe episode, aired on US Television.

Now, we are approaching the 30th Anniversary of that premiere. In 2014, World Events Productions (WEP) plans to celebrate this momentous occasion by releasing a slew of wonderful new items for fans.

Voltron 30th Anniversary Preview Panel Interviews at NYCC

As we approach 2014, excitement is building to see what World Events Productions will do to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Voltron: Defender of the Universe. Voltron was introduced to US TV viewers on September 10, 1984, and the world has never been the same since. The phrase, “Form like Voltron” has been used in the media vernacular to signify a group of people coming together with one common goal that they share. Whether it’s an athletic team, a corporation, event organizers, or people working on a project, Voltron defines unity of purpose in this day and age.

The “Voltron Force” of fans were overflowing the room at New York Comic Con when the Voltron 30th Anniversary Preview Panel kicked off on October 13, 2013. The first 29 fans received a special fan-made print to celebrate the 29th Anniversary of Voltron.

Our friend, Jeremy Corray, was flying the Voltron colors at Wizard World St Louis.

This was the first Wizard World Comic Con ever from St Louis, so it was very special for Voltron to come out and greet the fans in his own backyard. We’ve compiled a few of the stories that covered this event for you here.
