BotCon has announced two additional special guests for this year's event in San Diego, voice director Wally Burr and Transformers Generation 1 Season 5's Jason Jenson! Jenson played the role of Tommy Kennedy in the live action sequences along with an animatronic Powermaster Optimus Prime during the episode bumpers. After disappearing from the fandom he recently resurfaced for an interview back in January, and will now be appearing at BotCon. They join the already confirmed Transformers Prime voice actors David Sobolov (Shockwave)and James Horan (Wheeljack).

BotCon wrote:BotCon 2013 is excited to welcome legendary Voice Director Wally Burr to this years show! Mr. Burr has directed some of the greatest voice acting talents from the past 40 years and he will be on hand during the weekend for panels, autograph sessions and more!

Joining him is the actor who was featured alongside the very first live action Optimus Prime, Jason Jansen! As part of the more intriguing Generation 1 cartoon features, Jason (who played the human character Tommy Kennedy) will be participating in his first ever convention, filling fans in on what it was like to act next to the live action Generation 1 Optimus Prime!

BotCon tweeted earlier today that voice actor Maurice LaMarche has been added to the list of Transformers: Rescue Bots cast that will be attending this year's event. In addition to lending his voice to Chief Charlie Burns on Rescue Bots he also voiced Six-Gun in the original Generation 1 cartoon.

They've got the time and resources for this pointless shit but not getting the forums up? Or new fiction? Or any new content for their useless site? I've defended these guys for the longest time but I am over being spoon fed this garbage. Especially when the forums and fiction have been gone for several months, a year, more? Give us what we're paying for! It can not be that difficult to get a proper discussion forum up and running properly in the year 2013. I'd be a little more lenient on this if we were getting what we should be too.

You're picking nits and you even say so much. By comics you mean the 36 pages we get per year? Sure it's new fiction. You knew what I was referring to though. We can't even access the old prose either.

I wouldn't mind getting a read off of them too. There are no comic book stores I know of in my area, so it's rare when I get the chance to read comics.

Throw in the War for Cybertron comic too. I've finally read Exodus a couple years back, and I've keep forgetting to ask you about them. Yes, my memory is the size of a Mini-Con.

Um, yes? Considering how awful the ending to Exiles was by leaving it on an open cliffhanger with things left unanswered and unexplored. There's still thousands of years left for the books to cover, even before the TFs finally reach Earth.

Not to mention that David J. Williams is not Alex Irvine.

He does have an interesting resumé, yes. But Irvine also teaches Creative Writing at university, and has had some good criticism of his non-TF work. Didn't stop him from being awful in those two books.

I still claim that comics would work better. The War for Cybertron mini-comic was so much better than the chapters it was taken from.

Well, that's definitely Hubcap and Mirage on the Left of Hoist and Thundercracker on the right of Skywarp.

I love how the disjointed-ness of the molds of this Botcon are what binds them together.

Classics for Mirage, and the Rainmakers
Generations for Hoist (and Electro), and Strika (and Blastcharge)
Revenge of the Fallen for Skywarp (and Thundercracker)
Autobot Alliance (Transformers 2010 toyline) for Obsidian, and Starscream
Dark of the Moon for Sandstorm
Prime: Robots in Disguise for Megaplex

The question is, with all these molds and figures...

What happened to Optimus, Megatron, Prowl, Hubcap and Soundwave? I haven't seen them confirmed at all. They're the only figures missing from the entire Machine Wars line.

I guess maybe Hubcap got his name changed to Electro though? Considering what Electro looks like?

They most likely aren't receiving their own exclusives. But, despite the general dislike for such a move, I wouldn't mind seeing Soundwave from Reveal the Shield Perceptor.

I would dig it. Would keep things in a nice scale, versus the behemoth that is Cybertron Red Alert.
