Yep, and the mask he uses is inspired by the Guy Fawkes mask. I like that one better than the originals, which kind of look creepy:

I went to its first convention last year and it was great. A nice small con with lots of friendly people. They had great guests and musical talent for a small first time con. Well done Youmacon staff! My boyfriend and I plan on going again this year!

The Power Rangers were awesome as guests. I hope Youmacon gets more Ranger guests. Especially since the Excutive producer, Bruce Kalish is so willing to go to them and bring some rangers along.

Tony Oliver count? He was one of the original producers on the first series. As well as the voice of Rick Hunter in Robotech.

Yah.. but what about the current producer? Who said he'd love to come back...or actual ranger actors like last year. It was very fun meeting and talking with them.

From what I understand, staff just aren't intersted in this year's ranger team. Although next year's bots look better.

Besides which, keep checking the site. I beleive they're about to update the guest list with some really interesting people.

Well... I know quite a few congoers who think otherwise. This year's team is great.. and if Bruce wants to come again.. why can't he bring the new actors? Or maybe other SPD guests that didn't come last year due to time conflicts?

Suffice to say, we (youmacon staff) are looking into all possibilities for guests. We are looking into guests from last year, but we also know that we need to bring in new guests as well, so some guests we just can't have back again, despite wanting to, because we don't have an unlimited budget. We're looking into new talent, and old talent, from all over the industry.

It isn't an easy task to decide who to invite to a con. We are doing our best to give the attendees what they want while at the same time staying within reason and our budget.

You have to understand that we can't accomidate everyones requests, it's just not possible. And when you have every guest from the previous year wanting to come back again, telling other potential guests about their expierence who then turn arround and start requesting to come, we have a large list of potentials.

In the end, all we can say is we are doing our best. Keep a look out for the update.

And might I suggest that if you are wanting to request guests, please visit the youmacon forums or email the Guest Relations DH. While many of us are members of this forum, the best place to get the attention of staff is always the forums of the convention or via email.

i will post this on the youmacon site as well, but Kristine Sa was great...i think the eyshine / K-sa combo would have been HUGE if it had been Saturday night, giving the con-goers a chance to check out some of the tunes before hand through the cds, playing some of the music, etc. and kind of "spread the word"...anyway, i would pay $50 for a weekend youmacon pass this year if it helped secure some great guests, and i'm sure most con-goers would agree, i mean, you're aleady paying $40, so another 10 isn't make or break particularly considering the metro area (Troy) where the con is actually held....

I have at this link:

http://www.youmacon.com/forums/viewt...asc&start= 30

I've signed up for Youmacon forums and have supported this convention ever since I heard about it last Acen. You are one of the VERY FEW conventions to have Power Ranger guests other than the couple that do other anime related stuff (Johnny Bosch), that's why I'm hoping you guys get more guests like that... because it's rare and unique and a lot of people appreciate that kind of thing.

Yes, yes!! I am planning on going this year.

It will be my first year and since my husband is from Troy and it just so happens to fall right on our 6th Anniversery so it's just to perfect!!

We are coming from Chicago but at least we will have babysitting from his parents when we go to the con. We are most likely going to stay at the hotel as well, because why not? Adds to it, doesn't it and that way I have the opition of staying up all night if I want!!

Maybe it's a little early to be excited but I don't care, it's going to be a blast!
