With a goal of having fun while still giving back to the community, both groups will be on the show floor with the usual tools of the trade: Proton packs, ghost traps, Ecto goggles, PKE meters, etc..

The Philly team is currently collecting for the Juvenile Diabetes Foundation!  

And the Delaware team is going all out by bringing their Ectomobile to add to the show floor!

A big thanks to both groups for joining us, and a special thanks to Jeffe Rodriguez for agreeing to bring his Ecto to the show!

Alan Oppenheimer to Attend Retro Con 2016!

November 18, 2015 Leave a comment

 

We are elated to announce our first guest for Retro Con 2016: Veteran voice and character actor Alan Oppenheimer!

Alan has been in the entertainment business for more than 50 years, with live-action parts in such hit movies and series as The Untouchables, I Spy, Get Smart, Hogan’s Heroes, I Dream of Jeannie, That Girl, Bewitched, Bonanza, The Six Million Dollar Man, Westworld, Happy Days, What’s Happening!!, Trapper John M.D., Knight Rider, Night Court, Moving, Who’s the Boss, Married With Children, and Star Trek Voyager.

But if you grew up in the 80’s, you will most definitely recognize Alan as the voice of some of the decade’s most iconic characters!

His most famous voice role is probably that of the poster child of evil: Skeletor! *wicked laughter*

Alan portrayed the sinister (yet lovable) villain in over 70 episodes of the He-man and the Masters of the Universe cartoon series by Filmation, and the character would go on to have appearances on the follow-up She-Ra: Princess of Power cartoon. Though surrounded by incompetent minions and thwarted time and again by He-man and friends, Skeletor would never stop trying to conquer Eternia and capture Castle Grayskull!

In addition to Skeletor, Alan also provided the voice for Prince Adam’s mentor Man-At-Arms, Skeletor’s gurgling henchman Mer-Man, as well as Prince Adam’s “fearless friend” Cringer!

“Never give up, and good luck will find you.”

And in a role completely opposite of Skeletor, Alan also voiced another favorite character from the 80’s: The flying luck dragon Falkor!

A wise and benevolent being from the land of Fantasia, Falkor would give encouraging advice to those in need and could always be relied on in a crisis. This gentle giant is widely considered to be the most popular character from The NeverEnding Story, and is also one of Alan’s personal favorite roles.

In addition to Falkor, Alan also gave voice to the gargantuan Rock Biter and the devious G’mork, and was also the lighthearted narrator of the film!

Mr. Oppenheimer also worked on Marvel Sunbow’s Transformers cartoon, where he voiced three notable season 2 Autobots: The boisterous Warpath, the mellow pacifist Beachcomber, and the ocean-faring Seaspray!

Other characters Alan voiced include Prime Evil from Filmation’s Ghostbusters, as well as Vanity on the wildly popular Smurfs cartoon series!

Skeletor may be irredeemable evil, but we can assure you Alan has a heart of gold! He wants to donate 100% of his autograph sales from the show directly to children’s charities! So please come out to meet him at Retro Con! You’ll not only be meeting an amazing talent, you’ll also be helping some very worthy causes!!
