TFExpo wrote:TFExpo is thrilled to announce that David Kaye will be attending TFExpo 2016! Transformers fans know David very well as the voice of the sinister Beast Wars Megatron in that series, which celebrates its 20th Anniversary this year. But he can also be heard as Transformers Animated Optimus Prime and many other characters throughout the franchise. With impressive voiceover credits including Mobile Suit Gundam Wing, Ratchet and Clank Movie, Dragon Ball Z, and now as the voice behind Last Week Tonight with John Oliver, David is one busy guy. Please help us make him feel welcome on his first trip to Wichita, Kansas! Ultra Packages, including dinner with the stars, a seat at the TFExpo script reading, and your picture taken with David AND Michael Bell ARE still available as of this writing, but we expect these to go VERY quickly with this announcement. Please don't delay, register right now at tf-expo.com

See you at TFExpo 2016!
After successful fundraising efforts last year, TFExpo 2016 is proud to announce the return of the TFExpo charity auction! This year's auction will be held prior to the showing of Transformers the Movie on Friday at the Wichita Orpheum. TFExpo Special Guest Michael Bell will be on hand to help emcee, which should be a lot of fun. Various goods are being donated for the auction, but we can announce a VERY big one right now:
Titans Return Fortress Maximus!
That's right, thanks to a very generous donation from our friends at BigBadToyStore, and thanks to TFExpo 2016 sponsor Optibotimus for arranging it, TFExpo will be auctioning off a brand-new Hasbro Fort Max!
This year's auction benefits K-9 Karma Animal Advocates Inc., a pet rescue here in Wichita. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will go directly to this great organization. For more information on them visit ksdogrescue.com, and for more information on TFExpo visit tf-expo.com!
