ToonBarn visits Voltron Headquarters: Jeremy Corray Interview, Part 2


Voltron Week at ToonBarn - Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of Voltron Week!

Before we go any further, we need to remind you that World Events Productions has allowed us to give away 3 Voltron Prize Packs to 3 lucky winners. In order to be eligible to win, you must be a ToonBarn member and you must comment at the end of one of the Voltron Week stories or on one of the YouTube Interview Videos. If you are not signed up for ToonBarn, you can sign up HERE. Winners will be announced on Friday’s story.

In the interviews that we have done with Jeremy Corray, including the one in this story below, you can see some of the Classic Voltron toys and collectibles that are literally scattered all about the offices at World Events Productions in St. Louis. The person responsible for bringing all this old merchandise back to the home offices of World Events Productions was Tiffany Ilardi. Back in 2000, she went on eBay and bought hundreds of the classic Voltron toys and merchandise. She is responsible for cataloguing everything that ever had the Voltron name on it. That is quite a monumental task!

Today, you can buy Voltron merchandise directly from Voltron.com here at The Voltron Store. They have everything from shirts, CDs, and bumper stickers, to Comic Books, DVDs, and even Boxer Shorts that have the words, “Form Blazing Sword!” on the front. And, as you will see in today’s video, the Voltron Figurines are available from Mattel’s Collectible site, Matty Collector.

Jeremy Corray Interview, Part 2

As discussed in the video below, World Events Productions will be at ComicCon in San Diego this Thursday for the “Voltron:Form Blazing Fans!” Panel at 1 PM (PDT). If you are lucky enough to go, here is what you will see in person:
