Believe it or not, we live in a magical time. This special moment in history is a period when there are not one, but TWO Transformers shows on television. I know… who would have ever thought something so amazing could happen!?
Oh, yeah, that’s right… Apparently, Phil (my gnomish assistant) thought it could happen. I just wish he wasn’t so smug about it.
In any case, I’m here to tell you that yours truly has been lucky enough to write an episode for Transformers: Robots in Disguise called One of Our Mini-cons is Missing. It airs here in the United States this Saturday, June 11, 2015 on Cartoon Network and Phil really wants you to watch it.
No, I don’t think you understand. He REALLY wants you to watch the episode. Apparently, Phil is making his onscreen debut in this story. I suppose it could be true. I did write a part for someone of his… stature. Though to be completely honest I wasn’t aware that Phil was pursuing an acting career. But it does explain his frequent absences from work. He must have been at auditions.
Phil also wants to invite you to attend the Transformers: Robots in Disguise panel at SDCC (details here) this Thursday (tomorrow!). I will also be attending the panel and hope to see you in the crowd. Hey, maybe we can sit together? I’ll be there by myself unless… aw man. Yeah… Phil will be attending the panel to provide autographs, apparently. Though I’m not entirely sure how he’ll get to San Diego. I certainly wont be giving that little bearded smug-face a ride.
And remember, before you head out for a fun-filled weekend at the San Diego Comic-Con, make sure you set your device to record this awesome Transformers episode. Phil’s pretty sure you won’t believe how awesome it is (or how awesome he is in it… he’s so darn smug). He also says you MUST record the episode or else he’ll be forced to show up at your house and press record himself. I would do as he asks. The last time I let Phil touch a remote he locked the menu language in Japanese, permanently turned on the SAP function, and somehow I now have every episode of Salvage 1 recorded. A show that hasn’t aired in decades… so be wary of a gnome trying to use technology.
I’m serious. If Phil shows up at your home, just plan on replacing your TV.
Tune in and I hope everyone can make it to the panel!
