    First MLP and now Rescue Bots.

    I'll bring the kiddie pool. Who's bringing the shark?

    I don't watch Rescue Bots, but I will be attending this just for Steve Blum. :D

    No disrespect intended to the talent behind RescueBots, but this is underwhelming for me. I'd love to meet Steve Blum for sure, but this feels like it's a miss towards the core Transformers Fan.

    I know some people who watch RescueBots with their kids. Maybe I'm wrong ... I could just be a Debbie Downer.

    This is super cool! I hope this means a second season is forthcoming.

    There's nothing wrong with this news in and of itself. There SHOULD be things for the kids.

    The only problem is that there's been so little for the rest of us announced yet. If this is the extent of the guest list, then there's a problem. If they really do have more for the rest of us, I see no reason to pooh-pooh this news.

    I'm just nervous that so little non-artist news has been announced at this point (barely more than a month left before the convention).

    I thought that was already confirmed.

    EDIT: Yes, it was.

    You know, Lever Burton is also on the Rescue Bots cast. And I'd love to meet him purely because I went through school watching TNG. Maybe reading too much into it, but I suspect he might be one of the others coming.

    Steve Blum is awesome too but I'll catch him at Auto Assembly.

    Yup, you are right. I fully admitted I was being a Debbie Downer and jumping the gun ... but to your point, it just seems like the news for the older audience hasn't been there for BotCon 2013. Time will tell.

    I'm going to hold my tongue and continue to hope this will be a fun trip.

    IMO I think this is a great move by FunPub only because it brings in another generation/target of fans to the convention. Yes, I'd like more G1 VA's to be there mostly because time is not on their side (unfortunately the cold, hard truth). As a TF fan I'm happy for the other members of the fandom who are really excited about meeting these VA's.

    I just hope there are going to be more VA's announced. Who knows maybe they'll make Aaron Archer a guest considering he's no longer with Hasbro.

    Somebody BETTER ask these VA's to say funny lines in the voices of the characters that are decidedly more adult in humor. Like Blades trying to make friends with Albert Wesker.

    Resuce Bots? MLP? Is this BotCon Jr.? Color me VERY disappointed in this years edition of Botcon (aka BotCon Jr.). I can finally make a Botcon for once and these are the type of guests and exclusives I get.

    Great news if you are a Rescue Bots fan. If you are, congrats. I guess.

    As a Trek alum, he probably costs too much.

    What kind of precedent do we have for top tier Trek folks at BotCon in the past? (Sorry Jeff Combs fans. He's not top tier.)

    Please, please, don't. We get that every year, anyway.
