Transforming a Generation! A Shout Out To Jack Angel!

Jack_Angel

I haven’t spotlighted a favorite talent in a while, and since Jack Angel has always been one of my favorites! He had to be to be a first! If you’ve read his profile on voice chasers, you’ll find he’s worked on everything! He’s a brilliant actor! But I’ve always leaned more towards his Transformer characters.

Jack’s unforgettable as Astrotrain!  “It’s always the same thing. I fly them to points unknown, exhaust all my fuel, and they get to have all the fun.” 

A personal favorite with Astrotrain!

Pictured with Treat! At Retro Con!

Designing a Retro blog, that centers on the fans and collecting, can be exciting and cool! Especially when you have so many talented friends! In saying that.. I spotlight my friend Treat! He’s costumed many characters including: The Thundercat’s villain Mumm-ra, Doctor Who and The Goblin King from Labyrinth! Of course I’m only naming a few.. I’ll let Trick tell the rest, in this fun little interview.

Scream: Having known you for years Treat, I know just how geeky you can be! I of course say that in a good way. But if you had to pick just one favorite what would be it? [Movies, television shows, etc?]

Counting costumes, how many do you have and is there a favorite?

Treat: Movies are my favorite. Any great movie that allows me to escape for a couple hours from the some of the madness that’s happening in the world these days. I have so many favorites! But if I had to list a couple it would be The Empire Strikes Back and Tim Burton’s first Batman. I have about a dozen or so. I have 4 favorites. My Captain Jack Sparrow, Captain Jack Harness, My Batman and my 10th Doctor costume.

Remembering Wally Burr

Wally Burr, Neil Ross, Gregg Berger, Dan Gilvezan, Paul Eiding and David Mendenhall; during the 25th anniversary movie showing of Transformers.

It was heartbreaking hearing of Wally Burr’s death recently. Before his illness, Wally and I had spoke many times.. Of course in recent years I had slacked off, having a sick father myself. But I never forgot our friendship or the fond memories. In saying that.. I thought I’d share some personal memories. I’ll always remember you Wally.

“Do it with Style or don’t bother doing it!” That was the motto of the Second in Command and First Lieutenant of the Autobot’s, Jazz. He’s always been a fan favorite! But there’s one fan I know, that has always gone the extra Autobot mile, to show her love and appreciation! That’s my friend Jazzy!

Not only does she have a massive Jazz collection, and a awesome tattoo of the character. She now becomes this well loved character in cosplay! It truly is an honor to spotlight and interview this amazing fan and friend!

For those that don’t know me. I’m a nerd girl that happened to grow up in the eighties. Having fond memories of dropping countless quarters in the arcade machines, at the roller rink. I love sharing memories of seeing Back to the Future, Gremlins, RoboCop and so many other great movies of that time period. Like you might have seen on my Sherlock fans page, I plan to make this page all about the fans! Sharing: Interviews! Art! Costumes! & Much More! This is just the start of it!

For you Retro Fans! Have I got the convention for you! Retro Con 2017! For more information go to retrocons.com!

The Wild Bunch! During Joe Con 2012, I had spent several evenings in the company of both Will Ryan [The voice of Mutt and Footloose from G.I. Joe] & Neil Ross [The voice of Shipwreak from G.I. Joe & the voice of many Transformer characters, such as Springer, Hook and others]. Anyhow during one of those evenings I talked the boys into getting a photo with me western style, what a gas that was and so much fun!
