The 23rd seal of the Roboplastic Podcastalypse rips apart like a rare and valuable Voltron trading card that you tore in half because you weren't careful opening up the pack! Taste the blazing sword of anticipation as I deliver live interviews from Miami ComiCon 2011 with two of the artists who worked on 5finity's Voltron sketch card set-Michael "Locoduck" Duron and Rhiannon Owens! (But first I go on for half an hour about why you should accept Mister Rogers as your personal George Lucas and savior.) Once I get down to business, though, it's tons of talk about art, sketch cards, Voltron, Star Wars and how to cram really big robots onto really little pieces of paper. If your brother is a Robeast he'll love this LET'S TALK ABOUT SKETCH, BAYBEE edition of the Podcastalypse!

YOU ARE NOT YOUR VOLTRON CARD COLLECTION (BUT IT SAYS A LOT ABOUT YOU)
Tyler Durden wasn't really big on collecting stuff but that's because he never saw the Voltron trading cards released by 5finity Productions in 2010. Every single card was an original work of art, unique as a snowflake except if snowflakes had space lions and robeasts on them. Yeah you'd be beating yourself up too if you missed out on these, but never fear my fellow Macrocranians! I have for you interviews with two artists who are cool as a pair of Voltron sketch cards (and only slightly less rare)! And if you can't get enough of these two, check out 5finity Productions' Voltron webpage for more examples of their Voltron sketch card set, Michael's site is at LocoDuck.com, Rhiannon's DeviantArt is Dangerous-Beauty778.deviantart.com, and they'll both be at MegaCon in Orlando March 25-27!
