    RIP Wally Burr. Met him at Botcon 2011, at the time he was still in great health, demonstrating his ability to do push-ups on the convention floor! Appreciate his immense contribution to the cartoon, the tales of his recording sessions are legendary.

    RIP indeed. His TFcon appearance will live on as a highlight as I remember his time as a script reading judge.

    He was the voice director for G1.

    And also part of the reason voice actors went on strike in the 80s (on account of long hours/demanding voice sessions among other things). He's kinda notorious for being a perfectionist when it comes to getting stuff out of actors (he will keep going until he gets the take he wants) and we got to see that firsthand at TFcon.

    And not just Transformers...but he also voice directed JEM, Inhumanoids, Super Friends, Inspector Gadget and more. He was just as important to the franchise as any of the voice actors at the time...and almost all of them have a level of respect for him.

    He actually filled in a couple of times if these youtube videos are correct.

    Well some of that was temp tracks on account of the voice actor not being present for that session.

    It's possible he has dialogue that made it into the final show for all I know.
