Thanks to an update from their Facebook page, we have news that David Kaye, the well loved voice actor who lent his voice to the mean purple dinosaur known as Beast Wars Megatron, will be attending the Great Lakes Comiccon in 2018! David Kaye had his first Transformers experience as the voice of Megatron from both Beast Wars and Beast Machines, and eventually voiced Optimus Prime in Transformers: Animated, on of the few voice actors to voice both the big bad and the Prime himself.

Great Lakes Comiccon will be held on February 23-24, 2018 at the Macomb Community College, Warren, Michigan.

A new day... a new month... a new guest annoucement!

Join us in welcoming David Kaye to the Great Lakes Comic-Con! Appearing on Saturday, February 24, 2018 ONLY!

David is best known for being the voice of Megatron on Transformers Beast Wars, Beast Machines, and more! He was also the voice of Animated Optimus Prime, General Hawk on G.I. Joe and much more!

Her last few issues of TAOO were great.

But I wasn't a fan of those Hasbro-verse books.

the first few issues of TAAO were ok, then it descended into...yeah....

Now I see her with credits on such animated series as Guardians of the Galaxy. Apparently continuity in these series means absolutely nothing anymore. Its just about being a pale copy of the films. Season 3 kicks off literally with an episode which is an animated version of the Mission Breakout ride at Disney's California Adventure. The characters are automatically updated to look like their post *Volme 2* selves with no regard to what happened in the last season. Gawd....being a fan of comic-based animated series is torture. But I don't fully blame Scott, she is just a pawn in all of this.

Jeph Loeb is the mastermind of this disaster. I hate his decisions so much. As great as Spectacular Spider-Man & Avengers: EMH are, (which Loeb cancelled) I've rewatched them so many times in the past decade, I have them practically memorized.

Hey Seibertronians! It's my pleasure to announce that I'll be presenting my Panel "Never Grow Up: How Toy Collectors Created an Industry" at this year's Denver Comic Con, one of the largest conventions in the country! This is the same talk I gave at last year's Fort Collins Comic Con, just obviously on a bigger scale! It'll be on Saturday (6/16/18) at 4:30pm in the Central City - Mile High Ballroom DCCP3, if you're around, please come check it out! I'll have a large table with an awesome display spanning the generations of Transformers toys, from G1 to now, as well as TF comics and toys to give away! We'll go on a brief journey though comic and collectible history, and show how this new demographic of adult fans impacted that industry! We'll also have a short Q&A at the end, just in case you have a question about my presentation, my work at Seibertron, or my thoughts or opinions on anything that comes to mind! Would love to see you there!

If you live in or come across Montréal, come to MONTREAL COMICCON. From July 6th to July 8th.


Yours's truly will hold a panel about Transformers toys. The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly. I will compare toys that come from the same line, the same category. One would be an incredible one compared to one that is bafflingly designed. Me and my partner's English are not good enough to hold a bilingual panel. Beside, making in in both French and English would just make the thing less fun and spontaneous. So the panel will be in French only. But eh, come anyway if you don't understand French completely. You'll get the gist of it, I'm sure. ;)^ ... he-ugly-2/

Part of the new direction that the Hasbro Transformers brand team is taking on the international stage, we have news that the team will be present at Comic Con Paris 2018 ( taking place in the French capital on October 26-28, official site here ). Along with the entirety of the event's programme, the source specifically points out that 'for toy collectors, [there will be] a Hasbro booth with new releases and lines from Star Wars Black Series, Marvel, Venom, Transformers and Bumblebee. And a panel where some exclusives will be revealed.'

While we do not know whether said exclusives are for the Bumblebee Movie, or any of the Transformers lines (such as War For Cybertron Siege, and those elusive Decepticons), this may be of interest to any fan thinking of taking part in the convention next month! We will make sure to update you all on any new reveals pertinent to our robot interests, of course, so stay tuned to

Pour les collectionneurs de #Toys, un stand @Hasbro avec des nouveautés et collectors #StarWars Black Series, #Marvel, #Venom, #Transformers et #Bumblebee. Et un panel où seront révélées des exclusivités. #ComicConParis

man I'd love to meet him! the guy is an iconic god of the voiceover world!!

I mean seriously, take the 80s alone, he was probably involved in 95% of the cartoons of that time...whether it was a main role, reacuring, guest spot or just growls for animals or monsters, he was everywhere!

of course I'd wanna meet him due to Megatron...but Fred is another iconic role, outside of the Pup Named Scooby Doo series, I think he's voiced Fred in every animated Scooby incarnation since it began in 1969, that's crazy!

not to mention Dr. Claw on Inspector Gadget, a voice he's used in numerous other properties as well including Soundwave!

anyway I'm jealous! :)
