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!

Man, I was really hoping to see if Wally Burr was all that the tales had made him out to be. Shame I won't be there this year.

FunPub has uploaded a new video to their YouTube account advertising next month's BotCon 2013 in San Diego. The video features a dance off between Soundwave and Blaster plus various other Transformers characters. Check out the embedded video below.

Personally I would have rather seen them use the guns...

I especially liked the part where Blaster was dancing "Gangnam Style", while Soundwave was doing "Gentleman"

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.

I know you mean the text stories, but how do the comics not count as new club fiction?

I haven't been brave enough to renew my TFCC membership since the whole credit card fiasco a few years ago.

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.
