    Im sure this chick has been to plenty of Joe-cons but is this her first transformers convention ? Seems kinda messed up she only gets invited after moonracer and firesrar finally get a figure. Good for autographs I guess. Either way its good that she finally gets some recognition from the transformers fandom.

    She’s been to Botcon 2011 and 2014, both in Pasadena. I’ve also met her at Long Beach Comic Con. Definitely will be having her sign POTP Firestar (Novastar) and Moonracer.

    Funny I didnt even know that lol. I went to Botcon 2011 but I missed that pannel cause I was in the dealer room. One of these days I gotta read that stunticon job comic. I was so bummed when they cancelled the 3rd party set to make them combine into menasor.

    It’s truly amazing just how many different people have voiced transformers considering they could have just gotten the same actors to portray different roles, which they did, but man. Some of the roles were relatively minor and still got a different voice actor.

    Wow! Transformers had so many people attached to it. I would like to see Corey Burton, John DiMaggio, and Jess Harnell be there. Charlie Alder doesn't even remerber who he played! But Rob Paulsen does appreciate Transformers seeing how it was one of the first TV shows he had a major role in. Him visiting a botcon would not be surprising.

    Ah, thanks... I didn't recently check the ones who only had a minor participation in the cartoon, but I think I checked all of the other ones when I posted up the listing... who should all still be alive (and hopefully stay alive long enough for this massive event).

    I was looking at the ages of the ones who are still alive (when I was checking out the more active ones), and very few are still under 70... so this could be the last time we see many of the TFCon guests at a convention, or even in a group of Gen1 Voice Actors (not just from dying off, but from being too old and frail for doing public events anymore). :(
