Can we get Stan Bush and Marky Mark to sing a duet of The Touch?

I imagine he will probably be there for Autographs only. Cant see him doing a panel, and if he does, it will probably have no Q&A...and if there is, I'm sure the questions will be scrutinized thoroughly before they let any fan near him on a open mic.

Still...what are the odds we could get a crowd-funded *suicide bomber* (metaphorically speaking of course) to act as courteous and professional as possible, then just have an opportunity long enough to shout out loud "The LAST KNIGHT SUCKS!"...the reason for the crowd funding being of course that said person would get kicked out as soon as this happened.

Just to be clear, I have no grievances against Mark Wahlberg himself. I think he is a decent actor. I actually liked AoE to some degree, but TLK was just inexcusable, which I hardly blame Wahlberg for, it just needs to be said, that's all.

I feel the same way.

But then again, maybe he knows already. Ben Affleck knew BvS sucked without any fan telling it to his face :lol:

Considering Mark Wahlberg is done with Transformers I don't think he'd care. Still I wouldn't want to crap on the movie for the new fans that like it or discovered Transformers through it. The prankster in me thinks it would be pretty funny but I'd rather not see people get upset. After all the actors and other staff did put a lot of effort into the movie even if it wasn't directed well.

I'm fairly confident he would not be contractually allowed to disparage the very movie he's there to promote at Hascon.

Also, he probably gets this sort of stuff on his twitter feed or whatever every day. I'm not a fan of him as an actor, but leave him alone; he doesn't need that sort of stuff in his life.

Hmm, lemme see, pay for airfare to fly to Rhode Island and spend $300+ to go to Hascon... or simply drive to Orlando and spend $45 to go to Disney World?

Decisions, decisions...

:P

Good luck selling your art at those insane prices Ken. The Artists at Botcon were selling color prints of their best work for $10 a pop and they autographed it too.

How is that related? You talk about prints, he's writing about prices for actual art. 2 very different things.

Also, as an artist he fully deserves to mark prices a lot higher than $10. Selling coloured commissions at that low a price is downright insane.

Friend of Seibertron.com and music performer long associated with the Transformers family, franchise, and fandom Stan Bush has sent us a message about his attendance at HASCON - taking place next week in Rhode Island - as he adds his new album to the concert he'll be playing on the second night of the event, September 9th! Find out more information below, and let us know if you'll be attending in the Energon Pub

Stan Bush will be in concert at HASCON (Hasbro/Transformers convention) on Sept 9, and will be on hand for autographs throughout the weekend of Sept 8-10! Stan will be there promoting his new album “Change the World”. The official release of the album is Sept 22, but advance copies will be available at the convention.

The “Change the World” album includes “Never Surrender” from the “Kickboxer” movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, and “Warrior” from the Shadow Warrior 2 game. The title track “Change the World,” one of Stan’s best songs contains a message of hope and unity. “Born to Win” and “Live Your Dream” are songs about winning and believing in yourself.
