A blast from our Saturday morning past is about to "transform" the Indiana State Fairgrounds
It's always fun when a convention brings together the iconic voice and screen actors that shaped our youth and provided us with hours of entertainment. But rarely does it hit us in the nostalgic feels as hard as the upcoming reunion between Optimus Prime and Megatron themselves! All happening this weekend at the FanBoy Expo!
Come see both Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime) and Frank Welker (Megatron), who'll be on-hand to sign autographs, take pictures and generally ensure fans of the classic G1 series become "...one with the matrix of leadership." OK, we'll try to make that our last Transformers-pun today...but we can't make any firm promises! That's how excited we are to see these titans of our childhood make an appearance (which includes both Saturday and Sunday at the convention). In addition, Frank Welker is well known from many other successful series (like playing Fred on Scooby Doo and performing the voice of Curious George).
Many other '80 and '90s stars will also be present, like Jason David Frank (who famously played both the Green and White Rangers or Might Morphin' Power Rangers), as well as the Six Million Dollar Man Lee Majors. Check out this image gallery above to preview many of the headliners (be sure to check the website for the full guest list, as many more are scheduled to appear):
One shall stand, one shall fall... - Optimus Prime
And speaking of the Million Dollar Man, ever wonder what it might be like to have Jake "The Snake" Roberts DDT you? What about a piledriver from Jerry "The King" Lawler? Well...it's safe to say they won't do any of that to their fans this weekend. BUT...they will gladly sign autographs (including figures) and take pictures (both at their tables and special photo-ops). Be sure to chek the official website for availability and schedules to hang out with these legends.
The event will be held on November 12 & 13 at the Indiana State Fairgrounds & Event Center. Doors open at 10:00am on Saturday, 11:00am on Sunday. Tickets can be purchased at the box office or via the official Fanboy Expo website.
