    Fingers crossed someone has a guitar at the ready.

    Garry was a substantial part of what made TFcon 2011 one of my favorite (if not the favorite) TFcon experiences.

    Great news and a great guest! Gary Chalk is a great actor and a huge tie to the modern era of transformers which in my mind is the pre-movie stuff.

    Looking forward to the 'con!

    I only met the man once, but that was almost 14 years ago (BC 2000). He was very nice & professional, but didn't really seem to know much about the characters he's portrayed over the years. I wonder if since then he has changed at all?

    I'm so glad that TFCon has just come in swinging with A-List guests for the show so far, especially as a 30th Anniversary show.

    Garry Chalk was the first voice actor/guest I've ever met at a convention, back when I worked as a door duder for the panel room at BotCon 2012. I was watching the door trying to ignore whatever inane pre-show panel was going on and suddenly a massive THWACK hit my back with a loud, familiar "How ya doin' bud?" (Scared the shit out of me, to be honest) only to turn around and figure out it was Garry Chalk. We shot the shit for about 15 minutes and goddamn I wish all guest interactions were like that at conventions, and from what I've heard about how TFCon is held and ran? I am so glad I'm going this year. Official stuff be damned, I'm here to have fun.

    Well, we DID have Scott McNeil.

    The fact his SG-1 role amounted to little more than a non-speaking cameo since his lines got cut isn't his fault.

    If you guys are able to get David Kaye again this year, I will indeed intend TFCon this year.

    Hopefully nobody will ask him to speak as a pissed-off Primal again... kids should not be exposed to one of their heroes using gay slurs

    I guess we know that the voice actor play at TFcon will include Optimus Primal.
