Terri Hawkes, voice of Sailor Moon, at Florida Anime Experience

Terri Hawkes voice of Sailor Moon at Florida anime experience

Terri Hawkes, the English voice of Sailor Moon, was recently a guest at the Florida Anime Experience, her first anime conversion. She talked a bit about her experience and then fielded a number of questions about her time on Sailor Moon.

Amongst other things in this panel Terri talks about jobs she did with Tracy Moore, fighting the Negaverse, her favourite episode to record and dodges a question about which Sailor Scout is her favourite.

Terri Hawkes was the second voice of Sailor Moon, following a few episodes recorded by Tracey Moore. She voiced the majority of the first two seasons of the dub so she’s likely the voice most fans associate with the character, besides the original Japanese voice of course. In later seasons Linda Ballantyne provided Sailor Moon’s voice.

Check out Sailor Moon Obsession for more about this panel and the convention.

GI JoeCon 2012 date and location announced


The location for the 2012 GI Joe Collectors’ Convention will be New Orleans, Louisiana. The con will take place starting June 21st through June 24th. Hotel information will be coming soon, but at least you can start planning where you won’t be during those days. The June/July convention time slot is usually saved for Botcon, the official Transformers Collectors’ Convention, both run by Fun Publications. The significance of this should not be lost. The GI Joe movie sequel, GI Joe: Retaliation, premieres one week after the date of this convention.

Botcon 2011 Comic Teaser: Trypticon Prison

@Botcon twitter account gave us a peek at the new convention comic by showing us a panel featuring the Trypticon Prison. The name of the story is called The Stunti-Con Job and promises to be a treat for Transformers Animated fans with designs by Derrick Wyatt (Art Director for the show), story by Marty Isenberg (Story Director for the series, and art by Marcelo Matere (IDW artist who pencilled the Animated comic).

@mmatere @DerrickJWyatt Here tis! Trypticon Prison… WAIT till you see the guards! 😀 http://twitpic.com/4jo26b

If they are continuing their plans for the show in the comic and if the Allspark Almanac was any indication, the guards would have been minicons. It is more likely, though, that we will see some other repaints as the guards though in order to include characters that would be included in the convention souvenir sets. We’ll know soon!
