    That's awesome man. Huffer was always my favorite TF. I was at the '01 show, but sadly never really hit up the VA panel, or panels at any of the shows.

    Rest in peace, John Stephenson.

    I know comic book issues are prepared (and finalized?) months in advance, but I think it would be nice if IDW included at least a respectful final-panel caption in an issue of the former Robots in Disguise as an "In Memory of" piece. Alpha Trion, Thundercracker, and Kup all feature in the current story arc, after all.

    RIP Thundercracker, Kup, Huffer, Alpha Trion and Windcharger. Thundercracker was my favorite Decepticon growing up and still is. :(

    First time matching the voices with the person, and he fits both. He was definitely old school. I hope he passed knowing he was truly talented, loved, and appreciated as such.

    Sad to lose another of the 'old guard' voice talents. I'm glad I had the opportunity to meet him at Botcon 2001.

    RIP.

    John Stephenson voiced some of my favorite characters in G1- Thundercracker, Kup, Devcon.

    Such a talent.... one of the most prevailing voice actors of all time.

    He shall be missed.

    John... rest in peace.
