BotCon has announced yet another special guest for this year's event in San Diego, Glenn Morshower from the Transformers live action movie franchise. Morshower appeared in the first Transformers film as Colonel Sharp and as General Morshower in Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.

Re: BotCon 2013 Updates, Allotments, Artist Alley, and more


GLENN MORSHOWER is regarded as one of the busiest character actors in Hollywood. Best known for his role as Aaron Pierce on the FOX hit series 24, Glenn has had a hugely successful acting career spanning thirty-five years. Transformers fans of course know Glenn as GENERAL MORSHOWER from Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon and as COLONEL SHARP from the first Transformers movie, starring in the scene which featured the Transformers brought to life for the very first time!

Frequently seen in roles of authority, he has appeared in over 160 film and television projects including: Star Trek The Next Generation, The Men Who Stare at Goats, Good Night and Good Luck, Black Hawk Down, Air Force One, Hostage, Under Siege, All the King's Men, Pearl Harbor, with running roles on CSI, The West Wing, and Friday Night Lights.

I still can't get over the fact he played different characters in the movies, when he is in the military on both cases. Daft or what?

Well, just keep thinking of how Colonel Sharp was killed in action by Blackout, while General Morshower lives on. ;)

Also, this reveals that someone named Dave Williams will be the co-author of the next book in the "Exodus Trilogy".

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.

Man...BotCon is in my old home town, and I'm functionally broke out here in rural Colorado. Life sucks sometimes.

Well, I didn't know for sure if I was going to be able to go this year, but my wife and I will indeed be heading to San Diego. I know some of the regulars won't make it this year, but I will be happy to see a lot of my friends.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise artist Andrew Griffith has dropped by to let everyone know he will not only be joining the legion of creators during the VIP Tour, but he is also attending various IDW events during BotCon!



[quote]I'll be appearing at Botcon 2013 in San Diego this weekend.

I won't be at Artist Alley but I'll be one of the guests at IDW Publishing's VIP Tour, I'll be on their comics panel, and I'll be making some appearances at their booth throughout the weekend.

Hope to see you there![/quote]

Clever, making the jets look like the original MW toys. Especially the larger Starscream one look menacing.

That's a very cool spread. Wish the comic had used this art style.
