FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
June 09, 2009

MechaCon returns to Lafayette, La. on July 24-26, 2009!
Anime, Transformers & Japanese Cultural event

LAFAYETTE, LA: After four successful annual conventions since 2005, MechaCon returns to the Hilton Lafayette on the weekend of July 24-26, 2009 with MechaCon V.

Conveniently located along the I-10 corridor between New Orleans and Houston, Lafayette will again serve as the host city for MechaCon. Being a convention held in the "Hub City," MechaCon is easily accessible for fans from not only south, central and north Louisiana, but also east Texas, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.

Confirmed attendees at previous MechaCons included fans from areas as far away as Mexico, Canada, Washington state, Kansas, California, New York and more, making MechaCon a well-attended event from all fronts.

Slated for the 2009 convention is a celebration of 25 Years of Transformers, where two of the voice actors who have brought to life many incarnations of Optimus Prime and Megatron (Garry Chalk & David Kaye), bring the wonderful world of Transformers to attendees. Aside from his acting and voice work, Garry Chalk is also an accomplished musician who will be performing at MechaCon's 2009 Opening Ceremonies and Formal/Semi-formal Dinner.

Aside from Transformers guests, MechaCon welcomes noted legends of anime English dubbing work, Chris and Greg Ayres of Nerima Daikon Brothers, Samantha Inoue-Harte of Sakura Wars, Vic Mignogna and Wendy Powell of Fullmetal Alchemist and Mary Elizabeth McGlynn of Naruto and Ghost in the Shell as honored guests. On Saturday night, following MechaCon's impressive cosplay competition, fans will also be treated to the musical stylings of Vic Mignogna in a concert performance open to all attendees.

In addition to working with many companies and professionals in the Anime industry to bring attendees the most enjoyable convention experience possible, MechaCon V will also be a return stop on Harmony Gold's Robotech Convention Tour 2009, where MechaCon welcomes back Kevin McKeever, Operations Coordinator of Harmony Gold as an honored industry guest.

MechaCon's table-top gaming department will also be celebrating the 20th Anniversary of the Shadowrun RPG with special gaming guest Adam Jury of Catalyst Game Labs while MechaCon's 24-hour electronic gaming department welcomes back MechCorps BattleTech as they deliver adrenaline-pumping action as players control thirty-foot tall, 75-ton walking tanks, blasting their way to victory from inside of MechCorps six BattleMech Cockpit Simulator Pods.

The Towers has interviewed IDW's Senior Editor Andy Schmidt. Just a warning information revealed about movie, and Generation One comic lines could be considered spoilers in some cases.

"Thanks very much! I realize that there are probably some things you'll have to be closemouthed about, and that's perfectly fine. I also apologize for the fact that this did not turn out to be "very short"...

*No problem, Sam. Happy to help.

I really enjoy the way you portray Jazz and Prowl's friendship in All Hail Megatron, as well as the strange dynamic between Megatron and Starscream, which was very well written. Were there any friendships or brotherly relationships that you wanted to deepen within the IDW storyline?

*My tenure on the books as editor is really just ramping up. I do believe that Shane McCarthy and Denton Tipton wanted to strengthen the bond between Sunstreaker and Sideswipe.
As for me and where the books are going while I work on them. I think you'll see a different focus in terms of who we focus on and what they're doing. Tough to say now, but there's lots of good character beats headed your way."

allspark- Michael Bell, the voice actor for the Generation One cartoon's Prowl and Swoop is requesting the help of the fans.

"To all my Transformer buds,

I recently directed a demo for a series of motion graphic "Transformers" comics which could be downloaded via iPhone, iTouch, and other outlets. Many talented professional actors provided the voices for the characters in the demo including myself. The plan was to present it to IDW Comics who had shown more then a passing interest in this budding new concept. With a go ahead on producing the series, I would be employing the talents of as many of the original voices from the early series as possible. I had already cleared this with my fellow "Transformers" actors, and everyone was waiting in the wings for the response from the powers at IDW comics.

After months of mulling over it, they ultimately passed on the idea, and surprise surprise, decided to produce their own graphic motion novel without the voices or even the superbly heightened animation. So, essentially what you now have the ability to download is a plain old comic book.

Nothing new there.

SOooooo, I am taking my request to the troops. To all the die hard fans who I have met over the years at Botcon conventions, or who have written to me asking about my experiences working on one of the most inventive animated series in TV history- I need your help! I am requesting that you do something for me and my fellow actors, so we can in-turn do something really cool for you.

Please contact IDW and let them know that their concept of a series of comic books based on "Transformers" WITHOUT the talents of voice actors, especially many of the original voices, just doesn't cut it.

Please ask them to contract Creative Producers Chris Folino and William Katt, and make a deal for them to produce their concept of a downloadable graphic motion comic series of "Transformers" with - Hide quoted text - professional actors, progressive animation, and lotsa sound effects.

On behalf of all those actors, animators, and studio techs that will get an opportunity to carry on a great tradition,

I thank you,
Michael "Prowl/Swoop" Bell"


You can see the original request here, and check out the sample of the IDW motion graphic novel below.




UPDATE 6/8/09!

Michael Bell replies back to critics, and supporters at the Allspark.

"Hey T purists,
Thanks for all the responses to the demo. To those of you that liked, loved, and used it for personal gratification, cool beans!
Those of you that thought it was limited in content or approach, remember, it was a demo..designed to show the possibilities and not for public consumption. Time constraints demanded an immediate presentable product. No time to start sifting through the best stories etc.
If IDW recants and gives us a go ahead with some scratch to do a good job, I assure you, you will be blown awayby the end result.
In expensive but classy thrills for a .99 cent download. Much MORE THEN MEETS THE EYE!
Again, thanks for the attention and cogent responses.
For those of you who took the time to write IDW, you are da bomb.
