Retro Con 2015 Charity Auction

 

If you’re an 80’s cartoon aficionado, you won’t want to miss Retro Con’s charity auction this year! Voice actor (and Retro Con 2013 guest) Neil Ross has generously donated his remaining scripts from his voice-over work from back in the day. We have sorted through these and put together a catalog of them to be auctioned off at the show!

These are genuine dialogue scripts used by Neil in the recording studio while working on such classic shows as Transformers, GI Joe, and Voltron! Some include the call sheets, and many have hand-written notes in the sidebars and even the occasional doodle or other artifact. Many of these scripts also have differences to what made it into the final episodes, such as alternate lines of dialogue, and some instances where lines (and even scenes) were removed altogether from the finished shows! As huge fans of these shows ourselves, these scripts have made for most interesting reading!

And to make the scripts even more interesting, we have sent them out to several other voice actors that worked on these series, who have kindly autographed them for us! A special thanks to Neil Ross, Michael Bell, Corey Burton, Sue Blu, Alan Oppenheimer, Gregg Berger, Paul Eiding, Zack Hoffman, Morgan Lofting, John Moschitta, BJ Ward, Jack Angel, and Frank Welker for their assistance on this charity project!

The event will be held on Saturday afternoon at the show, and our auctioneer will be none other than America’s favorite fast talker himself: John Moschitta Jr!

100% of proceeds earned will be donated amongst a few different charities. These include Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), Cat Angel Network (a no-kill cat rescue in southeast PA), and other charities that will be selected by our 2015 guests who have participated in this auction project.

Below is the auction line-up, which includes scripts along with other related items. We will include a CD with each signed piece, which contains pictures to help authentic many of these signatures. Not every item will have visual proof, however we have ties with all voice actors involved, so virtually all signatures can be verified with a little routine inquiring. We are also willing to help prove authenticity with details on when and where items were signed.

So please consider coming to the show and bidding on these pieces of history. You’ll be donating to some very worthy causes to boot!

We’d like to give a special thanks to RetroDaze! Their generous donation helped give us the means to pick up the scripts from the west coast and get many of them signed!
