JAPAN CULTURE NYC COVERAGE OF THE ROBOTECH / VOLTRON NYCC PANEL  has posted an article on the first ever Robotech / Voltron Team-Up panel at NYCC. Here is an excerpt.

In the mid-1980s St. Louis-based World Events Productions syndicated Voltron, known in Japan asHyakuju Oh Goraion (Beast King GoLion), an anime that followed the story of space explorers whose robot lion spacecraft formed a giant robot that protected the universe from evil.
Another famously popular ‘80s series, Robotech is a sci-fi anime produced by Harmony Gold, a leading production, acquisition, and distribution company of international television programming, includingShaka Zulu and Around the World in 80 Days. Humans in Robotech’s saga must defend themselves against aliens in a series of wars.
The article is quite informative and has some good photos of the panel as well.
