Are you going to Retro Con 2018 on October 13 – 14, 2018 in Oaks, PA? Well, here are two more reasons you should consider going: Sgt. Slaughter & BJ Ward!
What is Retro Con?
Simply put: Retro Con is a celebration of all things 80’s and 90’s! It’s a celebration of nostalgia of the greatest era of popular culture. From television and films to cartoons and video games, Retro Con is THE family-friendly con for anyone who grew up in the last 30 years!
This year, however, Retro Con holds a special significance to G.I. Joe fans! Two legendary performers from the classic G.I. Joe cartoon series produced by Marvel Productions and Sunbow will be on hand! (Yes, one of them was also present in the DiC era but, let’s be honest, we don’t really like to talk about that series.) Hold on to your hats as both Sgt. Slaughter and veteran voice actress BJ Ward (Scarlett, Princess Alura, Wonder Woman) are coming to this amazing two day event!
While Melendy Britt (She-Ra) is no longer able to attend the organizers of the event have stepped in a big way with Ms. Ward as the latest added guest!
Even better– these two legends of G.I. Joe animation history will be joining Greg Berger (Spirit, Grimlock, Odie) and Garry Chalk (Optimus Primal, Man-at-Arms, Metal-Head) in greeting guests, signing autographs, and being onsite for an amazing weekend. Plus, if you’re looking to get a further Sunbow fix, Samantha Newark (Jem, Ariel) will be on site as well. Plus, Larry Kenney (Lion-O) is also going to be there! It’s a chance to meet the voices and personas that dominated your cartoon viewing time as a kid! (And, if you’re like me, as an adult today!)
If that’s not enough, there’s even a special concert by the famed Cybertronic Spree on Saturday night!
So, what are you waiting for? If you’re looking for a great weekend to bask in the warm nostalgic glow of simpler times, head on over to RetroCons.com and snag your tickets for this awesome event!
