We’re happy to report the return of a fan-favorite for Retro Con 2016: James Rolfe, AKA the Angry Video Game Nerd!

 photo AVGN2.jpg

“He’s gonna take you back to the past…”

James is best known for his hilarious reviews of classic video games as the character ‘The Angry Video Game Nerd’, which mix together insightful commentary, over-the-top language, physical comedy, and various theatrical elements. The show has been in production for more than a decade and still going strong!

Other programs on his website include James & Mike Mondays, Board James, You Know What’s Bulls#!t?, and literally hundreds of movie reviews of films spanning from the early 1900’s to present day! He also released a feature-length movie based around his AVGN character in 2014. Check out his team’s work over at Cinemassacre.com!

James will have a 3 hour signing session on **SUNDAY ONLY** from 12:00pm to 3:00pm. He will also be part of a 45 minute Q&A afterwards.

Help us celebrate the 30th anniversary of the M.A.S.K. toy line and cartoon at Retro Con 2015!! Members of Agents of MASK and Matt-Trakker.com will be at the show and hosting a panel on Saturday from 11:15am to 12:00pm, which will include the voice of Matt Trakker himself- Doug Stone!

Doug will be joining two panels during the convention- one with his voice acting peers, and another separate panel just to discuss M.A.S.K.! Doug will also be signing autographs during the event at no charge!

So what will Agents of M.A.S.K. be contributing to the convention? Well first off, admins Wyatt and Jason will be in attendance on Saturday and will be joining their friend Bill Faries of Matt-Trakker.com for the aforementioned M.A.S.K. panel. They are also planning to record some video segments for their YouTube channel and possibly a special MASKast to be released at a later date!

They will also be providing some printed material for the show. If you’re a M.A.S.K. fan, but don’t have any items for Doug Stone to sign, they’ll have you covered! They’ve designed a special photo montage print just for Retro Con! Check it out below…

8.5 x 11 glossy prints (minus logo watermark) will be made available for free at Doug’s table. These will be at a limited quantity, so we ask one per person. They will also be providing a free handout containing information about the online M.A.S.K. fan community. These flyers will be made available in a common area and we they also likely hand them to fans as they browse the convention floor.

They are looking forward to meeting some of their followers and MASKast listeners, so please let them know if you plan to attend! We would love to see M.A.S.K. fans come out in full force!!
