BotCon 2012 has announced their third special guest for this year's event, Dan Gilvezan, the voice of G1's Bumblebee.

DAN GILVEZAN began his career in animation as Spider-Man/Peter Parker on NBC’s “Spider-Man and His Amazing Friends.” He went onto to perform lead characters in a great many action/adventure shows of the mid to late 80’s including: Slipstream on “GI Joe: A Real American Hero,” Dargon on “Dino-Riders,” Dirk Courage on “Spiral Zone,” as well as everybody’s favorite yellow Volkswagen, Bumblebee, on the “Transformers.” On the lighter side he voiced Cooler, the leader of the “Pound Puppies” for Hanna-Barbera, and the ever put upon Henry Mitchell in CBS’s “New Adventures of Dennis the Menace.”

On-camera appearances have included guest-starring roles on "Desperate Housewives," "Bones," “NYPD Blue,” “The Bernie Mac Show,” “Third Rock From the Sun,” “Diagnosis Murder,” “Sabrina, the Teenaged Witch,” Boston Legal and the cult favorite "She wolf of London/Love and Curses." He has lent his talents to hundreds of TV and radio commercials and is the author of the novel "Drowned in the Grenadine," and "Bumblebee & Me," a remembrance of his time working on the original Transformers television series.

That's great news. This is the most excited I've been about a guest in a little while.

Yeah, I'm gonna try to. I went for both 2010 ans 2011, but I missed the Seibertron.com get-togethers of both years (though, I did get to meet a few members both years).

I'll be staying off site, though, since I couldn't afford the hotel prices (and so as to save more money for the trip and for toys ;) ). I'll just need to know the when and the where for the get-together.

...now I really wish they were coming back to Pasedena this year.

And to excerize my nerdiness, a correction. Dan Gilvezan voiced Questar in Dino Riders, there is no Dagren as far as I recall.

Sorry, Dino Riders was kind of one of those shows that stuck with me.

Well, if you went to BotCon 2010 we were easy to find, in part due to Ryan's awesome T-shirts.

Good show! I attended his panel at TFCon a couple years back - he's a very cool speaker.

BotCon 2012 has announced their next special guest, Buster Jones, the voice of G1 Blaster!

Image


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).

I always had a strong connection to Blaster. During the hip hop golden era with Run DMC and the Beastie Boys, having an autobot boombox with a DJ persona was a great idea. It's nice to finally put a face to this iconic voice. :D

Would any one who is going to this be willing to get a couple of items signed by Buster Jones for me? I'd pay for your time and shipping back to me.

BotCon 2012 has added a third Prime to their special guest line up! Joining David Kaye and Garry Chalk is the legendary Peter Cullen!

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!

Well...that is a mighty good highlight amongst the negativity!

Wow, so they're going to have 2 guys that have played Optimus Prime (including the unparalleled original), 1 BW Megatron and an Optimus Primal all at the same event.

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 :)).

All that's missing is Welker and we'd have the most awesome winning guest lineup of all time.

wow, Hasbro and Fun Pub are really trying to make up for pissing of the fans with the 3rd party and fan art issues.
