    I always liked his Thurston Howell III impersonation for Tracks. Seems like a down-to-earth guy based on his interview on the Rhino G1 series boxsets. Looking forward to possibly seeing him at the show.

    I never cared for Cosmos' voice, though...

    Met McConnohie at Botcon a couple of years ago, cool guy and a very interesting VA to listen to talk about stuff, so I highly recommend those attending to see his panel :thumbs2:

    Thurston Howell? Tracks always sounded a little light in his loafers to me.

    Track's voice is not based on Thurston Howell III. I asked Mr. McConnohie that at OTFCC 04. Sadly I cannot remember who it was based on, but its that same stiffed jawed kind of voice.

    :lol  I remmeber that I had a front row seat for that. Do you have a higher quality version, or just an audio version that you could post?

    I wish I could attend the convention. I remember seeing Michael on the bonus features on the TF DVDs and he struck me as a very talented voice actor. He gave so much character to Tracks, I think his voice is what made him so memorable. And Cosmos was always one of my favourites!

    No way they can stall this thing until Aug eh?
    That's when I will be in Toronto. No way I can pay for 2 trips there this year.
