Do you remember that first transformed moment? The first time a Transformers toy caught your eye? Continuing with my childhood memoirs, I speak of my first experience, my first memory of the toy line that would consume me. (Above, the toy isles as I remember them!)

I’m sharing a fond memory from four years ago! Wally Burr was the man that originally planned this reunion. He called me many nights, going over whom would be interested in attending. For me it was an amazing experience, working with a man I considered to be a legend! Micheal Bell, Neil Ross and Wally Burr were the three main men that made the reunion possible, I just had the wonderful opportunity of helping to host it! It was an amazing time, something I’ll never forget! I’ve been so blessed to have known and still chat with such amazing talents! [The photo above comes from that week; Corey Burton invited us into the Studios to watch him record an episode of The Neverland Pirates! Then he signed some charity pieces!]

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.

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.
