The list of BotCon 2011 guests just keeps growing.

In a recent Tweet, @BotCon announced their fifth guest for this year's convention, G1 voice actor Neil Ross.

BotCon wrote:NEIL ROSS voiced the G1 characters Hook, Slag, Bonecrusher and Springer in the Transformers animated television series and Transformers: The Movie. G.I. Joe fans know him as the voices of Dusty, Buzzer, Monkey Wrench and of coures...Shipwreck from the G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero series and animated movie. A veteran voice actor, he has appeared in over two thousand animated television episodes and movies. Plus, he's voiced countless radio and television commercials and promos as well as narrating documentaries and biographies for A&E and E! Entertainment. Neil also narrated twenty-two episodes of Nova for PBS.

His voice work has also been featured in many live action motion pictures including: Back To The Future II, Dick Tracy, Being John Malkovich and The Interpreter. His work has been heard in many hit Video Games such as Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, Metal Gear Solid, Call Of Duty, Command And Conquer and Doom 3. In 2003, Neil was the announcer for the 75th Annual Academy Awards telecast.

Don't miss this opportunity to meet Neil for autographs and see what part he will be voicing in Friday's special script reading!

I remember Gregg Berger saying (at TFcon) that someone should do a G1 Voice Actor reunion before everyone gets too old or passes away.

I thought that it was odd that they invited a woman who voiced two obscure characters and no one knows who she is, and if you do it would not be from her Transformers work. If she voiced something then she would certainly be welcome at the convention, but it is curious as to why Funpub said that they were really excited to announce her. I am not "dissing" her as I am sure she is a very capable actress, but why the hype?

When the next actor after her was announced, it seemed that they focused more on his GI Joe career.

So, is this panel going to be about Transformers or GI Joe?

Why does Funpub always play games with announcing who the guests are instead of announcing the name as they come in? Waiting two weeks before the event to announce them. That is just sad.

I would look at the blurbs again. She is on the script reading panel. We have something else planned for G1 actors.

Also, anyone who was a fan of the 80's toons in general should be hyped. As closely as Joe and TF were related back then (and now) having the voice of FIVE TF characters AND the Baroness from Joe is pretty hype worthy. She was a great guest at GIJoeCon and is a very lovely woman.

BotCon will have fans from around the world and many of those in attendance I suspect will truly enjoy meeting her and hearing her stories from back then.

This will be a panel on Transformers. Lofting was already at GIJoecon in Orlando.

He did a very good job imitating Robert Stack as Ultra Magnus in the 3rd and 4th seasons. I can't tell the difference from the Movie and tv series voices.

He actually would make an excellent Magneto if anything ever happened to Sir McKellen.

Time for Stan to collect his yearly paycheck. I mean with all due respect, without Transformers this guy would have no career. What I honestly want to know is if Stan Bush is a real Transformers fan or collector ??? Could I get into a deep discussion with him about the G1 cartoon or would he tell me "dude I just did the songs" ???

I was kinda wondering the same thing. By this time last year, I think we knew every figure that would be there.

Not that it matters, I'm getting them all regardless of character or mold.

The last of an epic guest list for BotCon 2011 has been announced in a playful tease from @BotCon, about Seibertron's now-defunct PG-13 spoof. Actress Arlene Banas, voice of G1 Carly, will round up BotCon's guest list in sunny Pasadena in two short weeks.

Ah, man! I remember "Before there was Carly...". :D Before there was Carly, there was..."Rhoda Miss", "Joy Rhide", "Leah Convoy", "Wendy Razor", "Silvia Streak", "Claudia Raker", "Irene Werks", etc. Oh, those were so bad. Why don't we bring those back? :D

Carly? Meh. If for nothing else, it'd just be nice to get a picture of G1 Carly's actress and movie Carly's actress together. But to be honest, I'd rather see Sue Blu there than Carly and the Baroness.
