We have an update for TFcon Toronto, taking place this July 15th-17th in Missisauga, Meadowvale, and it's a big one: just announced as special guest for the event is the voice of Megatron himself - Frank Welker! Check out the full write-up on the voice acting icon below.

TFcon is proud to announce pop culture icon Frank Welker, best known to Transformers fans as the original voice of Megatron will be a guest at this years convention in Toronto. Mr. Welker will be appearing Saturday July 16th, with tickets available in the near future.

In the 1980s, Welker voiced many recurring characters in the original Transformers animated series. He voiced several Decepticons, including the leader Megatron, Soundwave, Skywarp, Mixmaster, Laserbeak, Buzzsaw, Rumble, Frenzy, Ravage and Ratbat, as well as Autobots Mirage, Trailbreaker, Chromedome and Sludge. With the release of The Transformers: The Movie (1986), he took on the role of the Autobot Wheelie and afterwards, took over the role of Galvatron.

In Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), he reprised the roles of Soundwave and Ravage, and also provided the voices for Grindor, Devastator and Reedman.

Welker also reprised the roles of Megatron and Soundwave in the series Transformers: Prime and the video game Transformers: Devastation.

He voiced Shockwave, Barricade, and Soundwave in the film Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011), and reprised his role as Galvatron in Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014), adding to his already large list of roles within the Transformers franchise.

Registration for attendees will be available in the very near future.

TFcon Toronto 2016 will take place at the Hilton Mississauga/Meadowvale the weekend of July 15-17th.

He was kind of funnier as Spiderman rather than Bumblebee. Though he still worked with Frank Welker, who was the voice of Iceman in the 80s show....

Is that poster from Dreamwave? It seems a little unfair to post that as an example of his art, since Pat Lee kinda had everyone who worked on Dreamwave's art follow his style.
