    Sad News folks, I have just learned that Character Actor Norman Alden, the man who voiced Kranix from The Transformers: The Movie back in 1986 had died at the age of 87 on July 27th 2012 due to Natural Causes.

    Throughout his carrer, Alden was best known for his roles as Professor Frank Heflin on Electra Woman and Dyna Girl, Bill the cameraman in Ed Wood, Coach Leroy Fedder in Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman & Johnny Ringo in The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp. As a Voice Actor he was known as the voices of Aquaman, Plastic Man & Green Arrow in SuperFriends & Kay in The Sword in the Stone.

    You were a great Aquaman, and you will be missed as the Last Survivor of Lithone.

    Rest In Peace Norman. You made Kranix more of a character then he was intended to be.

    Nah, keep em coming. Everyone doing the superfriends knew how awful it was, that's why they intentionally made it so campy and had a ton of fun doing it.
