I'm organizing a Raffle Fundraiser in Toronto, Canada at Scotiabank Theatre for the Therapeutic Clown Program at SickKids Hospital, and I have Hasbro Canada as one of the main prize sponsors. We've got SICK prizes so far.

In a commission done for one client, so we can only guess there's only one of these in existance, Deviant Artist Dans-Magic made a custom movieverse Optimus Prime ring.
Made in 14 karat gold and featuring rubies for eyes, it took Dans-Magic 50 hours to create this masterpiece.
Unfortunately, Dans-Magic was recently hospitalized with heart attack. A request for prayers was posted on his deviant art page. Seibertron.com would like to extend our get well wishes to Dans-Magic and hope for a speedy recovery.

Long time Transformers Scribe Simon Furman has taken time out of his busy mid-year convention schedule to update his blog with another short and sweet synopsis (that again manages to be as spoiler-free as Furman synopsis go) for the third issue of the Transformers Revenge of the Fallen movie adaptation.
Furman also notes that Alex Milne (Reign of Starscream) will be covering the art duties for ROTF Adaptation #3, with series regular artist Jon Davis-Hunt, returning for the final issue.
Transformers Revenge of the Fallen movie adaptation #3 is set for release this Wednesday the 3rd of June (Thursday the 4th for those outside of the North American Continent), alongside a plethora of other Movie based titles.
Head into your local comic store in order to pick up both the Defiance and Alliance Trade paperbacks, and for those who cannot wait another week to get their hands on Issue #4 of the Revenge of the Fallen adaptation, you can also pick up the full Trade paperback of the Movie Adaptation.
Add to those releases the debut of "I am Optimus Prime" written by IDW's Chris Ryall, and you have one packed week of releases.
To check out Simon Furman's full synopsis for the third issue of the Revenge of the Fallen Adaptation, please click here, and happy comic hunting!
It was announced at Botcon that, following the release of the Cliffjumper and Metroplex Spotlights, the title would be going on a hiatus for the near future. In a posting on his blog, IDW Editory Chris Ryall has addressed these rumors by posting the following:
Everyone is too quick to believe unfounded rumors. Not even sure where this one came from, especially since there are Spots coming in June and July, plus 5-6 new movie Spotlights starting right after that.
So starting in August, fans can look forward to seeing their favorite characters from the live action films taking the Spotlight. To see the post in full, click here.
On Sunday, the final day of BotCon, mere hours before the close of the convention, our own dear Delicon had the notable opportunity of interviewing Mr. Gregg Berger, most known in our fandom as the voice of G1 Grimlock. Yours truly was honored to be called upon to transcribe the interview as it occurred. For me, it was both a joy and a learning experience, as I had no idea of the sheer number of current projects that Mr. Berger is involved in. Let me assure you, they are numerous. Because of this, we here at Seibertron.Com are truly grateful to Mr. Berger for taking the time to speak with us and provide insight into his amazing and inspiring career.
So, without further delay, the interview:
Delicon: What, generally speaking, has the Botcon experience been like for you so far? Are there any aspects of fandom that surprise you?
Berger: It's more than meets the eye! You have to be here to experience it and feel it. The energy is global, maybe galactic, and accessible to all. They have set the bar so high that the biggest surprise of all is that they have exceeded all expectations! It rocks so hard!
Delicon: The autograph lines have been insane, what is most unusual thing you have autographed both at this convention and overall?
Berger: Although I autographed the inside of several shoes at this con, my most unusual signing ever was an @$$ cheek, which I have been told went straight to a tattooer.
Delicon: What aspects of TransFormers, particularly G1, do you feel influence modern shows, or their creators as something that affected them?
Berger: I think it had, in its time, an enormous effect on people who have now grown into not only a devoted fanbase, but also show creators, and creatives in general. So many people in so many creative circles credit their rabid devotion to Transformers growing up as part of their wonder years, and consequently part of them. I was introduced last week by someone who said, "This is the man who made me late for school and made me rush home after school." That feels so good I can't tell you.
Delicon: You worked with so many voice actors on Transformers and other shows. Name one or two that stand out and why?
Berger: I would say, personally, Scatman Crothers made me anxious for the times that we were not recording, because he would bring a ukulele or tell stories, and he had such a magical quality about him as a person that I just wanted to sit and listen to whatever he had to say. I still worked with Frank Welker nearly every week on new episodes of "Garfield," but when "Transformers" was working I was the new kid and was awed by his, and everyone's, incredible talent, and Frank's in particular, his sense of fun and play, keeping the sessions always fresh.
Delicon: You've done mostly voice acting, but have a regular acting background as well. Do you have a preference of the two? Is there more job security in voice acting?
Berger: I don't believe there is job security for anyone who feels that they are guaranteed job security. Every opportunity stands alone and must be earned. I love the voiceover community, but I love the on-camera, onstage, and personal appearance opportunities I have been afforded as well. I'm not trying to bail on the question,
but the truth is I love whatever I'm doing at the moment.
Delicon: You're most well-known in TransFormers for your portrayal of Grimlock, but you've done a host of characters on many shows. Are there any characters you identify with on a personal level?
Berger: To some degree, all of them, which is how actors should approach their work. But strictly on the optimism level, I would have to say, Spirit from "GI Joe."
Delicon: Final question. Thank you very much for you time today, we greatly appreciate it. This is your opportunity to pitch any upcoming projects, I'm sure fans would love to know.
Berger: I am happily so busy at the moment that I need an air traffic controller! I am Captain Cutter in "Halo Wars", Kingpin in "Spiderman: Web of Shadows", Fred Dukes aka the Blob in "X-men Origins: Wolverine: The Game," two major characters in "Guild Wars 2," and I narrate "Shadow Force" for the History Channel. New "Garfield"s are in production and began airing in May on Cartoon Network UK, so hopefully other markets in the near future. Boy did you pick the right time to ask me that question!
Final Fantasy fans can look for Gregg as the voice of Jecht in Final Fantasy Dissidia. You can also find Mr. Berger by visiting GreggBerger.com and at his Myspace Page. Special thanks to Mr. Berger's representative, Emily Danyel for giving us the opportunity to interview him. Emily can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org and at 1 (310) 497-7994.
Something that many non-Botconners may not realise is that most actors who sign autographs at BotCon do so at a small table at some assigned location for a specified amount of time. However, Mr. Berger had his own booth in the Sales Room at the convention, where he signed autographs for anyone who came by during the day. No lines, just come by the booth, bring an item, or buy one of a variety of photos of Gregg and/or Grimlock (as well as some other characters he's voiced). Now, keep in mind that even Big Bad Toy Store has to pay to have a booth in the Sales Room. There's no confirmed proof that Mr. Berger actually paid money to make himself available to the fans for a far longer time, but it certainly seems that way.
In closing, I'd like to once again express how much I, and I'm sure we as a fan community, appreciate Mr. Berger and all of his hard work. It's because of his work, and that of many others, that we enjoy the vast array of Transformers fiction that we do.
