Nice! Neil is an awesome dude! I loved he and Gary Chalk's panel at TFCon last year.

Interesting... Looks like I've got a new reality to play with for our Ener-Con script reading this year. Better start figuring out a decent adventure for the RiD cast to have.

Before I proceed, would we be open to legal problems if I used the concept of a Shattered Glass type crossover? I was thinking since Kaplan only voiced the two characters bringing in an evil version of his Optimus would give him a bit more to do, considering last year the guest voice had four characters to work with, but I don't want to do anything that could step on certain toes and the like.

Just bring in the bad guys from Power Rangers

Whatever you do you gotta include a part for T-AI and Kelly (and probably cast a woman as Koji).
