ToonBarn visits Voltron Headquarters: Bob Koplar Interview, Part 2
We have finally reached the end of Voltron Week at ToonBarn! We hope some of you were able to catch the Voltron Panel at ComicCon in San Diego yesterday, entitled “Voltron: Form Blazing Fans!” If you were there, please let us know what it was like by commenting below. We are really interested in knowing what the energy of the crowd was there, and how excited they were to learn about anything new in the Voltron Universe. Rest easy, if, like us, you were unable to attend, as Jeremy Corray has assured us, through the Voltron Facebook Page, that the ENTIRE panel will be available on YouTube THIS WEEKEND! Hurray! We will post it as well, so you can be sure to find it, in all it’s Voltron glory.
So, we have been providing footage of our visit to World Event Productions in St. Louis recently, and we have also given some behind-the-scenes insight into the World of Voltron and Voltron Force. Once again, we would like to thank Jeremy Corray for taking us in and making us feel welcome in St. Louis. We can’t say enough nice things about Jeremy. Also, we’d like to thank Bob Koplar and Jeremy for taking time out of their busy schedules (Defending the Universe) to give us some really great and amazingly in-depth interviews about Voltron, Voltron Force, World Events Productions, Comic Books, the Voltron Movie, and so much more. Feel free to keep coming back to these interviews time and time again, because there is just so much information.
Of course, we would not have been able to pull off these great interviews without the special talents of the man behind the camera. We’d like to thank Bret Schubert of Studio Worx for his extremely professional and expert camera work while we interviewed Jeremy and Bob. He also did a great job taking footage of all the offices at World Events Productions so we could show you just how much Voltron surrounds the staff that work at World Events Productions.
Here is a profile of our Cinematographer:

Oh, there is that little matter of a Contest for 3 Voltron Prize Packs!
We appreciate people commenting on our stories because it really is for the fans of Voltron that we went directly to the source at World Events Productions in St. Louis, MO. We wanted to give you exclusive first-hand information and behind-the-scenes footage that had never been seen before. All of these interviews were conducted by ToonBarn, edited with care by ToonBarn, and presented by ToonBarn in a way that was hopefully, interesting and entertaining. And while we would like to be able to give Voltron Prize Packs to everyone, we are only able to give out 3.
The Winners of our Voltron Week Contest at ToonBarn are:
Congratulations to all of you! We will be contacting you shortly through ToonBarn messaging to get your addresses so we may send you those Prize Packs quickly.
Finally, we have for you the final interview video from Bob Koplar, where Bob talks about how a toy was used to animate Dudley’s life-size Voltron Replica from “Rogue Trip”. Bob goes into great detail about his favorite Voltron toys, both when he was younger…and now. He also answers questions about which version of Voltron will be in the Voltron Movie, and which version he likes better.
Enjoy the interview, and feel free to let us know what you think. Thanks for supporting ToonBarn! We hope to be bringing you more special weeks like this one in the future.
