Would any one who is going to this be willing to get a couple of items signed by Buster Jones for me? I'd pay for your time and shipping back to me.

BotCon 2012 has added a third Prime to their special guest line up! Joining David Kaye and Garry Chalk is the legendary Peter Cullen!

Image



We are thrilled to announce that the one and only PETER CULLEN will be joining us at BotCon 2012! Best known as the voice behind the wise and heroic AUTOBOT leader OPTIMUS PRIME in the popular 1980s cartoon series "The Transformers" and in the 1986 animated film "The Transformers: The Movie", he reprised the role again for the three Blockbuster Michael Bay live action Transformers movies. He currently can be heard voicing OPTIMUS PRIME in the award winning "Transformers: Prime" series, now in its second season on the HUB network.

Don't miss out on seeing Peter at BotCon 2012! Registration will be available again in the coming days so it is not too late to be part of the greatest Transformers event of the year!

Wow, so they're going to have 2 guys that have played Optimus Prime (including the unparalleled original), 1 BW Megatron and an Optimus Primal all at the same event.

That's pretty epic.

If BW Megatron wins, Kaye can accept the award and they can re-enact the BW scene where he tries to eliminate Optimus Prime, only to be thwarted by Optimus Primal (but they'd need to give Cullen some lines, as just laying there snoring in *stasis* would be a waste of his talent :)).

Actually, if they got Neil that would be too cool. They'd ALL have to do their Prime voices all at once. :-?

If you drop the "Prime" part, that makes it six "Optimuses" (since Garry Chalk voiced two, and Peter Cullen voiced three). ;)

:shock: :shock: :shock: I just thought of something!

While we know that Peter Cullen, Garry Chalk, and David Kaye all being there will make there be three Optimus Prime voice actors be at this year's BotCon, what if there's more to it than that?

Remember the "Invasion Prologue" comic that we saw on BotCon's website? Remember how, on the last page, there were all those Primes gathered together? What if they're going to do a live script reading of this year's "Invasion" comic and have all three of these guys voice some of these Primes?

Like, Peter Cullen could voice G2 Hero Optimus Prime, Garry Chalk could voice Cybertron "Munky" Optimus Prime, and David Kaye could voice either Leo Prime or Sentinel Maximus. Just have them get Neil Kaplan to come too so he can voice Universe RiD Optimus Prime, and we'll have a full set! :D :-B 8) :DANCE: :KREMZEEK:

I really hope if we get a script reading this year, we get an original story featuring G1 characters being that you've got 4 legendary Autobots covered with Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Blaster and Bumblebee.

Either that or a script reading based on Shattered Glass where Cullen does Evil Prime, how cool would that be?

BotCon has posted the following guidelines regarding obtaining Peter Cullen's autograph, which will be limited to 125. Please see below:

BotCon wrote:NOTE: The following procedure applies ONLY to Peter Cullen!

Mr. Cullen is very limited in the number of autographs that he can sign at any show. We are very fortunate that he will be attending BotCon this year. In order to be as fair to every fan at the show as possible, and to help you maximize your BotCon experience by not waiting in a very long line for Mr. Cullen, we will be instituting a random drawing for his autograph line. This is how the procedure will go:

1. Mr. Cullen will be signing 125 autographs.

2. Each person who is a registered guest at BotCon will have one entry in the autograph drawing. You do not need to do anything as we have entered your name into a database that will randomly pick the attendees that are eligible for Mr. Cullen's autograph.

3. General Admission attendees who purchase an autograph band will also be put into the drawing, provided that they purchase their autograph band before 11:00 AM, Saturday April 28, 2012.

4. After the list is generated (around noon) we will post it online at BotCon.com, tweet that it is posted and have a printed copy posted on the room-to-room trading board.

5. If your name is on the list, you will need to go to the info booth and receive your autograph ticket.

6. Names will be listed by last name, first name, city, postal code and country to avoid any confusion.

7. At 1:30 PM the line will start for Mr. Cullen's autograph. There is no reason to line up early, as Mr. Cullen will sign for each person in the line.

8. You will be allowed ONE item to sign, please have it out and ready to go when you get to the front of the line.

9. Please move along as fast as you can so that we can get everyone through the line in the allotted time. You can have a friend take your picture during the autograph signing but there will not be time to pose with Mr. Cullen.

10. These tickets are NOT transferrable. We will recheck the names drawn when you get to the front of the autograph line in order to audit that you were chosen in the drawing.

You reckon the special instructions for Peter Cullen could be due to the movies at all? I mean, he's the only one there that was a voice actor in the movies, right?

Sorry, just trying to figure out why only 125 autographs. Seems odd to me.
