So here is the thing. I have never been to the San Diego Comic-Con. It’s not for the lack of trying, or from the lack of not wanting to go. Voltron will be there, but I won’t. Sad day.
Here are some reasons for not being able to go:
- Can’t afford the good tickets (if I am going to do it, I want to do it right)
- Can’t afford to fly out there from Ohio
- Can’t afford to book a hotel room to stay for the duration
- Sensing a theme here?
I have been a Voltron fan all my life since I was a little kid really from the original Voltron, and the Vehicle Voltron as well. I remember being glued to the TV to watch every episode whenever it came on.
So what is going on with Voltron at the San Diego Comic-Con 2017 this year? Find out below.
THURSDAY, JULY 20th:

Join executive producer Joaquim Dos Santos, co-executive producer Lauren Montgomery, Bex Taylor-Klaus and Tyler Labine as they debut the first episode of season three of the Netflix original series DreamWorks Voltron Legendary Defender.

VOLTRON AROUND THE CON
Hunk’s Food Goo Replication Station (Food Truck)
Thursday to Saturday from 11 AM – 6 PM, Sunday from 11 AM – 5 PM
Petco Interactive Zone
As Coran would say, “Ahoy, young paladins! I’ve whipped up a big batch of focusing food. After this snack, you’ll be forming Voltron six times a movement and twice on the astral conflux!” Take a break from the crowds and have a cold and refreshing treat on us. DreamWorks Animation Television is bringing every paladin’s (least) favorite snack to San Diego: green food goo! From 11 AM – 6 PM Thursday to Saturday and 11 AM to 5 PM Sunday you’ll find Hunk’s Food Goo Replication Station serving Altea’s finest green goo while supplies last.
Lion Forge Comics
Located in Booth #1903, Lion Forge Comics is giving away free Black Lion masks (while supplies last), massive 22″x34″ 4-Color posters (while supplies last), 4-color bookmarks and will be selling Voltron Legendary Defender Volume 1 which collects issues 1-5 of the miniseries.
Since I can’t go and probably will never get a chance to go, if you see any cool Voltron merchandise there and want to get it for me, I would adore you!
If you get to go, please come back and leave some comments on how it was? Do you like Voltron? What is your best memory of it? ~Tom
