For all you BotCon fans, now is the time to "Dare to Be Stuipd"! Our next big guest? The one, the only "WEIRD AL" Yankovic! You read that right. "Weird Al" is coming to BotCon on Saturday, May 30th.

WEIRD AL YANKOVIC

Weird Al Yankovic, the undisputed king of pop culture parody, has sold more comedy recordings than any other artist in history. In a career spanning nearly three decades, he has amassed 28 Gold and Platinum albums, 7 Gold and Platinum-certified home videos and 3 Grammy Awards (with 11 nominations).

Transformers audiences also know Weird Al for the contribution of his single Dare to be Stupid to the soundtrack of the 1986 Transformers Animated Movie. The song is well known to fans as it plays during the scene in which Wreck Gar confronts the Autobots on the planet of Junk. With the debut of Transformers Animated, fans got an extra special treat when, Weird Al was cast as the voice of Wreck Gar for the new series.

"Weird Al" will be joining us on Saturday for an autograph session and a Transformers Animated panel with David Kaye. He will also be joining us for the Party at Paramount! Because of the limited time he can spend at the show, autographs will be from 9:00AM-11:00AM on Saturday. Only Primus package holders can get in the autograph line (first come, first served) and it will be cut off when the maximum number is reached. You will be limited to one item and no personal photographs will be allowed during the autograph session. However, "Weird Al" will be joining us at Paramount and photos will be allowed at the party.

FAN FAVORITE: DAVID KAYE

David aka: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Galvatron, Grimlock, Lugnut, etc. etc. and will be joining us on Saturday May 30th for a panel with "Weird Al" and an autograph session! He will also be joining us at the Party at Paramount!

David has been involved with the Transformers franchise in one way or another for about 15 years. First as Megatron in Beast wars and now as Optimus Prime in TF Animated. Two new feature animated films will feature David's voice. "The Hero of Color City" will be released in 2010 and you'll also hear David beginning May 29th, in Pixar's new 3D animated feature, "Up". Based in Burbank, California, Hollywood has been keeping Kaye busy this year. "I want to thank Brian and the crew for asking me to this years BotCon. It's great to see some old and new faces again. Transform, and Roll Out!!"

David will be at BotCon Saturday, May 30th only. He will be available for two autograph sessions and one voice actor panel. He will also be joining us for the Party at Paramount! on Saturday night.

Need a pass to the Party at Paramount!?

All Primus and Minicon package holders are eligible to attend the party. If you have not signed up yet and have decided to attend this unforgettable night at Paramount, you can fax in a new registration form. Mark the box at the top that this is an additional item to be added to an existing order, mark the party selection on the form and fax in with payment ASAP, space is limited!

Still need a Primus or Iacon set?

We have less than 10% of the entire run still available. We do have a waiting list for the Iacon packages, however we have been allocating sets to this list every week and currently we have filled the entire list. We will continue to do this as we get closer to the show date, we just want to ensure that everyone who wants an attending package can get one. To order, use the registration form at BotCon.com.

SEE YOU IN PASADENA!

It has been a constant source of rumour, speculation, misinformation and here-say for months, but it would appear that one of the more talked about voice acting roles for Revenge of the Fallen has been cast.

Robert Orci has finally confirmed on the Ugo Movie Blog that Frank Welker will be reprising one of his more well-known roles from the G1 Cartoon Soundwave.

Jordan Hoffman: Who's voicing Soundwave in Transformers?
Roberto Orci: Welker.
Jordan Hoffman: That's official?
Roberto Orci: I think so.
Jordan Hoffman: Uh oh.
Roberto Orci: Might be something I just told you for the first time, but I think so.
Jordan Hoffman: Good to know.

In what seems to be a case of "the more the merrier", it appears that Steve Jablonsky is certainly not alone in creating the movie score for the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen film.

As we reported earlier, it was known that band Linkin Park were contributing at least one song to Jablonsky's movie score.

Thanks to a blog update on MikeShinoda.com it would appear that movie score composer extroadinaire Hans Zimmer is also working on the score.

If the name Zimmer sounds familiar, it's probably because he has worked on the score for some of the more financially successful films released in the past few years including, and not restricted to: Batman Begins and Batman: The Dark Knight, Kung Fu Panda, the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, as well as Gladiator.
This will not be the first time that Zimmer has created the score for a Michael Bay film, previously working on both The Rock and Pearl harbour's movie scores.
