To no one's surprise (Thanks to David Kaye's Facebook comments), the first BotCon guests have been announced as David Kaye and Garry Chalk!

Also... Check out the banner on that page. Armada!

This makes it MY 10th anniversary too! 2002 was my first Botcon!

And HELL TO THE YES. David is one of my absolute favorite Botcon guests, but I've missed Garry at every con.
Brwoooomp!

Speaking of Armada, did Hasbro ever give an answer about the rumors of Armada originally being a continuation of G1? Last I heard it was still "forthcoming".

Why wasn't there a 10th anniversary of RID? Featuring, oh, say, voice actors who aren't there every other year? We only had Spellos ONCE.

Because RID is this recycled half-measure thing that was one year long, while Armada outsold it and its continuity lasted half a decade across multiple media?

Okay, that's the mean answer. The real answer is probably "Kaye and Chalk have been consistently popular guests who perform flagship characters from multiple popular franchises, they haven't both been there together for a while, and it just so happens this is an anniversary year from one of those franchises, conveniently."

Have Garry and David EVER been to the same TF show? In the states?

I'd have to dig through the archives but its Friday, so... yeah.

Not that it's a bad thing. I dig having Garry and David at the same show.

Well, first time in a decade!

The '98 VA reading was insanely fun. Much like last year's Prime cast reading, or Bee in the City. I'd love to see another large BW cast reading.

Is it wrong that I now kinda want them to do a script reading of the issue with Spidey Vs Megatron? Though of course it'd be BW Megatron... but that makes it more entertaining.

Dan is a great guest, great guy, but the Botcon where he and Scott shared the same autograph line, Scott had the line backed up due to hugs and pictures and chatting - they had to move their tables and make two lines as I recall. He also didn't enjoy Scott's "raise the roof" antics during the Q&A - he shot Scott a look and Scott toned it down as a result.
