After months of work, we have our new customization class ready to go! Hosted by master customizer Encline, this class will teach you how to disassemble, prepare, paint, and customize a Transformer figure! Based on the Generation One character Needlenose, you'll receive all materials, paints and tools necessary for customization, a brand new custom head to create your figure, base body, instructional DVD (in case you don't finish) and even a couple of extras! Everything you need will be provided. There will even be special prizes given out during the class! Limited to just 20 spots; the class will take place from 8am until 4pm on Sunday, August 11th.

 

We have also reserved a larger number of these sets for non-attendees. Prizes will also be randomly inserted into non-attendee kits so you don't miss out on any giveaways!

Paul has an impressive and extensive resume; in addition to Perceptor, he also portrays Colonel Roy Campbell in the Metal Gear series, the narrator in Diablo, Judicator Aldaris in Starcraft, and Grandpa Max Tennyson in every Ben 10 cartoon series, including Ben 10, Alien Force, Ultimate Alien, and Omniverse, in which he also voices Blukic, Eye Guy, Liam, and others. Not only that but he has also voiced various characters in Pixar's Finding Nemo, Wall-E, Monsters, Inc., Up, Cars, A Bug's Life, and the soon to be released Monsters U.

 

Paul, an American actor, is equally comfortable on stage or in front of the camera. He appeared as Ambassador Loquel in the Star Trek: TNG episode: Liasons, and has guest starred on CSI:Miami, The Drew Carey Show, ER, The West Wing, My Name is Earl, The Charmings, Picket Fences, The Pretender, Providence, and many other shows.

We are very happy to announce another guest! Ken Christiansen will be joining us for the show as well!

 

Ken Christiansen has been working as an illustrator and concept designer for over fifteen years. Starting as a video game concept artist, at Nintendo of America (Ridge Racer 64, Pokemon Puzzle League), then moving to Los Angeles to work in games for the Walt Disney Company (Kingdom Hearts, Finding Nemo). In 2004, Ken started his own company, Bad Flip Productions, working for video game clients like Disney, Warner Bros., Universal, and Activision. After working with Activision on Transformers the Game, and the Revenge of the Fallen game, he began working freelance in media development for Hasbro Inc.

Ready for some more announcements?

 

First off, we are happy to announce that we will be joined by another IDW artist at the show, none other than Brian Shearer! Brian has been working in the comics industry for several years on books such as Transformers, G.I. Joe, and Doctor Who as well as other titles. About 10 years ago he co-created his first creator-owned book, GravyBoy, which gave him the experience of creating and publishing a book from the ground up. Brian lives in Greensboro, NC with his wife, son, and a cat who likes to be petted at the most inconvenient times.

What's that? Not enough Artists for you yet? Then how about the talented John Wycough! John is an inker, Transformers fan, drummer, awesome cook, and member of Tsunami Studios. He has worked on many titles, (Star Wars, Fear Itself, Chaos War, G.I. Joe, to name a few) along with TRANSFORMERS!! (Last Stand of the Wreckers, TF:Robots in Disguise, TF: More Than Meets the Eye, TF: Infestation2, All Hail Megatron, Movie tie ins) Woot!-Woot! He tends to subconsciously live by the motto of the Wreckers, as he tends to Wreck-n-Rule when no one is looking.

Oh and one more thing that I almost forgot to mention. For anyone who missed out on Aftershock, there will be one in our Charity Auction on Saturday night :D The Charity Auction is only open to preregistrants, so make sure you do it soon as preregistration closes this Monday night at midnight. Also if you are planning on booking a hotel room, our special rate also ends Monday at midnight.
