JACK ANGEL got his first real break voicing characters for the 1970’s SuperFriends cartoon. From there he would go on to voice numerous cartoon characters of all shapes and sizes with some from a whole ‘nother world! Transformers fans know Jack for the various characters he played on the 80’s G-1 cartoon series, from Ramjet, Astrotrain and Breakdown to Smokescreen, Ultra Magnus and Omega Supreme!

In addition to his work on Transformers, Jack’s voice could be heard on G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero, The Real Ghostbusters, Jem, Tailspin, Darkwing Duck, The Mask, Fox’s Spiderman and many other series!

Jack has recently starred in Toy Story 3 as Chunk and in different Smurf’s features/video games as Papa Smurf. Come see Jack on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for panels, autographs and at other special events featured at BotCon 2014!

It's not that this Cannonball is a mere redeco that bvzxa was bothered by. It's that it's a redeco that is based on something that was already a redeco to being with, instead of a redeco with a more original deco.


Thanks for clarifying Sabrblade.

I wouldn't compare this to the new E-Hobby Magnificus. The history of the figure and the fact that it's an update just like Classics Perceptor is an update to G1 Perceptor, the Magnificus repaint was pretty much a done deal.

I'm on the fence because the Prime molds were pretty weak with the exception of the First Editions. I'm sure convention collectors will be happy with this repaint but I stand by the Cybertron repaint is still a heck of a lot better.

Here is our second figure reveal from the BotCon 2014 Convention set - PIRATES VS KNIGHTS! Formerly part of Squadron X, Ferak and his brother in arms, Tornado, have now joined with Cannonball's crew of PIRATES to seek glory and riches! Each contributing skills key to the success of the heist, how can the Heroic Cybertronian KNIGHTS put an end to the plunder?

This year's amazing five-figure set explores a whole new theme while also celebrating 30 years of the Transformers! This is more than just a homage set though, as it brings characters from across the mythos into the Fun Publications "G1 cartoon" universe, with a couple more surprises still in store for you!

The mold works on so many levels it is too perfect.

All he needs is to have that white replaced with pastel lavender.

So beside Sabrblade and the three other people in the entirety of the cosmos who know about this character extensively, can anyone tell me why, oh why I should care about this garish repaint that makes machine wars Skywarp look impressive?

Also, shouldn't this topic be merged with the main one?

That's the RtS Cyclonus mold, right? Not bad. I thought I was gonna dislike this set, but so far they're 2 for 2 on figures I don't hate. I might have to get the Iacon package this year, if they keep this up.

I dunno about you guys, but I love it. I absolutely love it. I'm really liking how it seems the Club is busting out some of the more obscure characters for these exclusives. Here's to hoping more Squadron X characters! :grin:

Calling it now, though: if Macabre is coming up soon, it's gunna be from Generations Black Shadow. Ain't no convincing with me unless the reveal says different. [-(
