Transformers Stuff at Dragon*Con 2012
August 8, 2012 § Leave a comment
In the last 10 years, Transformers hasn’t had much presence at Atlanta’s Dragon*Con other than a fan panel on the Anime/Manga Track, an occasional TF-related media guest, and some random TF cosplayers.
Atlanta-area TF fans have attempted meet-ups since 2009, but turnout was extremely small. A GATF group meet-up is planned for D*Con 2012 and the date/time/place will be announced in late August 2012 via the official GATF Facebook page.
And there are actually some great TF-related media guests scheduled for 2012:
– GARRY CHALK, voice of Optimus Primal in Beast Wars and Beast Machines as well as Optimus Prime in The Unicron Trilogy (Armada, Energon, Cybertron).
– TARA STRONG, voice of Sari Sumdac, Teletran-1 and other characters on Transformers Animated.
– ROB PAULSEN, voice of Air Raid and other incidental characters in Transformers Generation One.
– ADAM BALDWIN, voice of Breakdown in Transformers Prime.
– MATT FRANK: IDW comics artist who has worked on several Transformers titles.
– JAMIE SNELL: Freelance illustrator who worked on IDW comics’ Transformers Beast Wars Source Book.
– DAN JOLLEY: Wrote the Devils Due’s G.I. Joe vs Transformers II comic miniseries, and served as head writer on the War for Cybertron video game.
Be sure to bring your TF mint-in-box toys, DVDs, video games and comics and get them signed at the Walk of Fame and in the Artists Alley.
GATF member Craig “Voiceroy” Crumpton (yes, I’m referring to myself in third person) will be serving as moderator for the cartoon voice actor panels on D*Con’s Animation Track and also giving away TF-related swag during those panel events — including items autographed by Garry Chalk, Tara Strong, and Rob Paulsen.
