Just watching Paul, David, Hal, Daniel, and Jon and the mastery of their work was was well worth the trip to Charticon! I loved how each of them put a little bit extra character in to each.... uh... character! Daniel was especially physically emotive in his star scream character and Jon' alt universe Shattered Glass Nemies prime voice was hilarious! I was Also Amazed how such a meek voice could come out of Paul Eiding as he has such a stronger presence when you talk to him in person. I don't know how Hal pulls of shrapnel but it is AMAZING! and as much heresy as it might be I think David Sobolov's Shockwave puts much more weight and dread into that character. All and all A great time and I'll go next year if they decide to keep this thing going!

Though it's unofficial, I will be listening to this later.

It's nice to see this up as I was on a Minibot binge in the dealer room at the time and completely forgot about it.

This was a lot of fun. Also getting to meet the guys was awesome. I didn't realize how many characters I had watched as a kid were voiced by Paul and Hal but their resumes are really impressive even besides their involvement with Transformers. After the voice actor reading I headed back to the dealer room and I'm talking to the guy at Lost Treasures, then next thing I know Daniel is standing their next to me looking over the table. Turns out he is a long time fan and collector as well! The guy at Lost Treasures managed to get him to sign two of his rare Starscreams (including one 'Ghost' Starscream reissue).
As an aside, overall Charticon was a great show. I did kind of get screwed a bit by the hotel, but that's another story. The show itself was great, looking forward to the next one!

This was a fantastic convention and somehow this was my first script reading. I just never went to them at BotCon....I was missing out.

That reading was epic!The script penned by some of the Charticon staff was hilarious. I am so glad I made the trip up from Florida, this con rocked! I actually preferred it to Botcon... Less commercial and mainly true fans. Well enough of my Phumphering

Sitting alongside such legends was a true honor for a fan-turned-pro such as myself and Daniel. This was the coolest thing for me at the con. It's always a little nerve-racking to have to go up with such huge talents but seeing them all nervous and fumbling over the script backstage while they each did their own preparation for the script reading made me realize we're all human and everyone gets nervous, even the pros. I'm definitely more confident in myself after that experience. Got dozens of compliments afterwards and haven't stop getting Facebook friend invites since.
By the way it's my first day here on Seibertron . Hi everyone!!! This convention was by far the most fun I've had in a long time and first Transformers convention as well. So much hospitality and the staff was amazing. They were always involved. Meeting the voice actors was a splendid treat as well. Many wonderful memories with everyone there.
