    I'm torn over Michael Mcconnohie. I still need his signature of his characters G1 and RID which would be great but I'm not looking forward to the travel cost.

    I tried to have him put Devastators first line on my G1 devy, I even recited the line as my favorite. Well arthur is an artist and must feel a deeper connection to his line from the 86 movie. My experience has been don't try to direct him, let him have artistic freedom.

    Unforgettable voice in both Destro and Devastator.
    Just heard his voice in my head when I was fiddling with my Constructor Devastator a couple of days ago.
    Guy is a legend for GIJOE and Transformers and he only did two voices in the two shows combined. Quite the voice and onscreen actor resume over the years too.
    Quite the convention treat, TCP.

    There ... I heard the voice in my head again.
    "Nothing directs the Devastator. Nothing!"

    Burghardt is one of the G1 cast I'd really love to actually meet in person and talk to. Years ago I found an archive of an old underground newspaper from here in Atlanta ("The Great Speckled Bird", if you're curious) which had an interview with him in it! It was from the Vietnam era, and apparently he was living in Atlanta doing theater... and talked at length about how he'd burned his draft card.

    I'd love to ask him about that stuff - and going from someone who was clearly actively opposed to the war in Vietnam to being a bad guy on two different TV shows that are basically about justified military action...
