    I'm sure they can manage to deal with all the hardcore fans of the TV show flocking around them.

    Why would anyone admit in public they are a voice on that series?

    Ah yes, because heaven forbid people from a show be proud of their work and wanting to share their experiences with fans.

    Hope he has a good time at the convention!

    Why didn't they invite the "Fan-Favorite" Windblade voice actress? Isn't she the star of this series?

    This makes sense as Megatron is the best part about this series.

    The only fans associated with the Combiner Wars cartoon are those that blow away black holes.

    And what is there to be proud of here? Bailey and Marnocha may be decent voice actors for a low-budget production like this, but for all the good they've done is ruined by everything else in the show. I thought episodes 3 to 6 were getting better with each new episode after a lacklustre first two episodes but then the writers went full on stupid when they wrote episode 7. Its common for good actors to appear in bad productions and then be ashamed of having appeared in such crap for years to come. So again, what is there to be proud of? Being able to voice Optimus Prime and Megatron is only an honor in an actually decent production.

    They deserve some recognition, they were all very good, I wouldn't mind them voicing those characters again in a longer series.

    Now people can meet the man behind the high-pitched screaming/crying/laughing? of a big purple cloud.

    But really I actually somewhat liked his voice in the episodes leading up to ^. It wasn\'t over the top, but still sounded like Starscream.

    THIS.

    Heck, even Sony has distanced itself from No Man's Sky...

    So a quick wikipedia search for the voice of Starscream turns up a mafioso. How many of the VAs from CW voiced anything legitimate? And before it starts, no, youtube commentaries don't count.

    Well, Patrick Seitz and Ben Pronsky have voiced in other series'. Jon Bailey is a professional voice actor.

    IMDB was enlightening. Didn't realize Seitz was Silverbot in WFC.

    Good for them. I hope the two people who meet the voice actors behind such a God-awful show enjoy themselves. Is Miss Denial, voice actor of Maxima, attending too? She can tell everyone how deep a character Maxima is and how she hopes to reprise her role and... oh wait a minute, never mind.

    Ben Pronsky and Patrick Seitz are the only two voice actors in Combiner Wars that are any good, but the direction in Combiner Wars is so bad that it doesn't even matter. I'd rather watch the proper shows they're in where they do actually decent work. I could listen to Patrick Seitz as Franky all day, but Devastator barely talked, and that's probably for the better.
