TFcon Toronto 2019 dates announced: July 12th – 14th
For G1 guests, I'd like to see Michael Chain (Powerglide, Hoist, Red Alert and Skids), Laurie Faso (Skydive, Divebomb, Rampage, Orion Pax), Victor Caroli (the narrator), Marlene Aragon (Elita-One) and even though I know it's a longshot - Corey Burton (Brawn, Sunstreaker, Shockwave, Spike)!
If we are doing a guest wish list, I agree with the above but would also like to add: Milton James, Steve Bulen, Jerry Houser, Brad Garrett, Beau Weaver, Jered Barclay, Terry McGovern, Joe Leahy, Michael Mcconnohie, and Judd Nelson.
Hmm. I wonder if the choice of Hot Rod/Rodimus Prime for the character art is any indication of who might be one of the guests next year. Nah, they couldn't get Judd Nelson, could they?
As for other guests, I think I'd love to see more Animated guests. Maybe it's just because I've been rewatching Animated recently. Such a great show! But yeah, that's another vote for Corey Burton from me! Who was also Megatron, Ratchet, and Shockwave in Animated.
Tara Strong would be a great one too! I know people hated on Sari when Animated was originally airing, but when you watch it now, she's an awesome character on her own. First solo lead female human protagonist in Transformers. She's way better than Miko or Alexis. Oh, and she was also the original Slipstream, who has now gone on to be in all sorts of other Transformers media, including the new Cyberverse cartoon. Plus Tara has voiced every other female(or young boy) character in a cartoon ever. She's like the female Frank Welker.
Tom Kenny and Bill Faggerbake would also be insane gets. Obviously, because they played Starscream(and movie Wheelie) and Bulkhead respectively. No other reason. It's not like they've been in any other popular cartoons together.
A more realistic guest might be someone like Jeff Bennett. Who played Prowl, Ultra Magnus, Captain Fanzone, and the Angry Archer among others in Animated. As well as a bunch of other characters in Rescue Bots and RiD 2.0 who I don't recognize because I haven't watched those shows.
I'd also love to see more non-voice actor guests. Writers like Marty Isenberg, Bob Forward, and Larry DiTillio.
John Moschitta would be another good guest get, as all of his G1 characters have/will have updated toys ready for signage - TR Blurr (as well as Animated Blurr), POTP Punch/Counterpunch and Siege Blowpipe!

My room is booked for 5 nights. I thought I’d beat the early spring rush and register now.
I’m extremely excited to be spending some time in early July in Toronto this year.
