Interviews

At Botcon 2004 I was fortunate enough to sit down and conduct an interview with Dan Gilvezan, the voice actor who helped bring life to the classic G1 character, Bumblebee. Unfortunately, that interview was lost thanks to a tape recorder malfunction, but Mr. Gilvezan was kind enough to agree to a phone interview. Similar questions to those asked at Botcon were used in this interview. All bold text is the interviewer (Ben Yee) speaking.
