    Man. I know virtually nothing about TF voice actors. I know Cullen.. that's it. Although, I got a lot of respect for the people that show up to these events and get face time with the fans.

    Comos = Cosmos?

    Pretty damn cool, and Pasadena is just one hop, skip, and a helluva long drive away...

    Tracks was one of my FAVORITE G1 characters, and it'd be great to hear him in a panel.

    I'm bringing my copy of Street Fighter IV. he voiced Seth, the final boss.
    I've heard his speech a thousand times since its the hardest boss fight I've had this year.

    "I'm impressed you made it this far!"

    Oh yeah, maybe he'll do the TRACKS RAP again!

    YouTube - Tracks rap

    This was for OTFCC in Chicago in 2004. It was sheer luck that I had the camera on when he started that, because no one saw it coming.

    He's also got at least one memorable video game role: CAPTAIN GORDON DEFENDER OF THE EARTH from Disgaea.
