Dan and Buster Jones will be on hand all weekend, taking part in fan panels, autograph sessions and the meet and greet for Golden Ticket holders. You won't want to miss meeting these G1 greats!
BUSTER JONES first role in animation was voicing the legendary Black Vulcan from "Challenge of the Superfriends." He would go on to voice Doc and Zap from the "G.I.Joe: A Real American Hero" series, Winston Zeddemore from the latter half of "The Real Ghostbusters" and of course the hippest Autobot around, Blaster from the "Transformers."
In addition to Animation work, Buster was also the host of Dick Clark's "Soul Unlimited" and has been involved in the music industry for five decades. This is Buster's first convention appearance and he is thrilled to meet all of the fans who have come to love the characters he voiced through his many years in the entertainment industry.

No he didn't. Maybe once or twice, but not all the time (like Wheelie did).Autobot_Benz wrote:That's awesome Blaster was one of my favorite G1 characters always talking in rhyme.

We are thrilled to announce that the one and only PETER CULLEN will be joining us at BotCon 2012! Best known as the voice behind the wise and heroic AUTOBOT leader OPTIMUS PRIME in the popular 1980s cartoon series "The Transformers" and in the 1986 animated film "The Transformers: The Movie", he reprised the role again for the three Blockbuster Michael Bay live action Transformers movies. He currently can be heard voicing OPTIMUS PRIME in the award winning "Transformers: Prime" series, now in its second season on the HUB network.
Don't miss out on seeing Peter at BotCon 2012! Registration will be available again in the coming days so it is not too late to be part of the greatest Transformers event of the year!

That's pretty epic.
If BW Megatron wins, Kaye can accept the award and they can re-enact the BW scene where he tries to eliminate Optimus Prime, only to be thwarted by Optimus Primal (but they'd need to give Cullen some lines, as just laying there snoring in *stasis* would be a waste of his talent .

If you drop the "Prime" part, that makes it six "Optimuses" (since Garry Chalk voiced two, and Peter Cullen voiced three).UltraPrimal wrote:3 Optimus Primes, 1 Con!

Hope he shows up too. Barely got to talk to him last year.Rated X wrote:Like we didnt see this one coming. This will be his 3rd year in a row. (maybe longer but I wasnt there in 2009)I love Peter Cullen and think he should just come every year mandatory. So when will the inevitable "Stan Bush at Botcon 2012" announcement come ???

While we know that Peter Cullen, Garry Chalk, and David Kaye all being there will make there be three Optimus Prime voice actors be at this year's BotCon, what if there's more to it than that?
Remember the "Invasion Prologue" comic that we saw on BotCon's website? Remember how, on the last page, there were all those Primes gathered together? What if they're going to do a live script reading of this year's "Invasion" comic and have all three of these guys voice some of these Primes?
Like, Peter Cullen could voice G2 Hero Optimus Prime, Garry Chalk could voice Cybertron "Munky" Optimus Prime, and David Kaye could voice either Leo Prime or Sentinel Maximus. Just have them get Neil Kaplan to come too so he can voice Universe RiD Optimus Prime, and we'll have a full set!

Either that or a script reading based on Shattered Glass where Cullen does Evil Prime, how cool would that be?
