I got the chance to speak with Ultramechatron Team Go! creator and star Mike Trapp about the creation of the series, his inspiration, and the work that goes into the comedy of show. Additionally, he talks about his role in the show as the useless torso helps him let loose and have some fun.

Ultramechatron Team Go! from CollegeHumor’s DROPOUT is an original kaiju comedy, will premiere on their subscription-based streaming service on every Thursday. A parody of the kaiju and mecha genre, the series uses influences from properties like the Power Rangers and even Pacific Rim. A team of four incompetent and incompatible mech pilots defend their city as the Ultramechatron. Each episode of this 12-episode series presents a team of four heroes who are capable of saving the world, if only they can survive each other.
