Garry Chalk will be making another appearance in the United States at the 2012 Dragon Con.
Just looked up Dragon Con.
Seem's like my sort of convention to go to. I might see if I can visit it since it gives me lots of prep time.
Nice!! One of TF's great VA's attending a Con in the South!! Will be marked on my calendar.
Gary Chalk, is coming to my city!!!!! Well, that's just prime...
OMG - yet another reason to save mah pennies. Plenty of other great panels & celebs to meet, but I think this is the first "Transformers" celeb.
Of course, Garry will likely be part of the Stargate Track since he played the memorable Russian Colonel.
IMO, if you're a Fantasy or SciFi fan, it's a convention you want to go to at least once.
Just make sure your deodorant is working well, as it does get hot, & ppl can be rather packed in the halls going from panel-room to panel-room.
If you want some more info (slightly outdated as my last D*C was 2006), PM me.
It's a very interesting con. There are so many people in costumes they have a parade on Saturday. I live in the area and go every year.
If George Lowe has a panel go to it, you won't be disappointed.
He's great as Primal, but having him voice Prime was a mistake. Then again I felt the AEC continuity was a mistake.
Odd that I posted this news on Dec. 1st and someone else gets credit for it. But as long as word gets out, I'm happy. I'm also honored to say that I will be serving as moderator for the voice actor panels at Dragon*Con for the 3rd straight year.
And it may be premature to announce this since I don't have 100% confirmation, but I am planning to give away a Beast Wars merch item during one of the VA panels, which I believe Garry has already agreed to autograph.
I am also pushing for Garry to have a chance to perform some of his R&B songs live during D*Con weekend. If I'm not able to get him a panel or event spot performing -- if he brings his guitar I can guarantee you he'll be performing during at least one of the voice actor panels.
And Tekkaman and I have done a TF fan meetup as well... even if it was just the two of us.
We're planning an official meetup for the Georgia Transformers Fans group this year, and if I can work it out we might just have a rather special VIP guest attending.
George has already been confirmed for 2012 as well, as I posted here on Dec. 1st:
I also can vouch for Dragon*Con being a blast. It's like 30+ conventions in one massive multimedia event -- I believe attendance is rivaled only by NYCC and SDCC, and D*Con actually was recommended OVER SDCC in a recent article on the LA Times:
Hmmmm ... I'm going to have to think about that one
