"Voltron fans at New York Comic Con have always shown us tremendous amount of love and enthusiasm," commented WEP's Jeremy Corray. "This opportunity to form up with our friends at Harmony Gold for the first ever Robotech / Voltron crossover panel has been a pop-culture event years in the making that fans of classic '80s cartoons, anime, and giant robots won't want to miss. Fans planning their panel hits should mark it down now."
"Robotech and Voltron share many common roots as two of the best known series in anime history," said Tommy Yune, Creative Director, Harmony Gold. "We're thrilled to be a part of this exciting project with our colleagues from World Events Productions."
