Burgess Meredith has been a want of mine for a very very long time. Burgess voiced the fearsome leader of Cobra-La Golobulus. He had a long and illustrious career with roles in the Rocky Franchise, Grumpy Old Men, Clash of the Titans and the original Batman show. I am beyond thrilled to add Burgess to my collection
Franz Drameh & Falk Hentschel play Jefferson Jackson/Firestorm and Carter Hall/Hawkman in the show Legends of Tomorrow and the rest of the “Arrowverse”. These shows are some of the best shows going on TV right now and I am excited to add two of my favorite characters to my collection. Neither is known for much else right now, but who knows what the future will bring.
Vanessa Marshall voiced Hera in Rebels. Rebels is a great cartoon and one of the better newer star wars things to come out in recent years. She’s had an incredibly long voice over career bringing life to characters such as Olga in Metal Gear Solid 2, Jan Ors in Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast, and the animated version of Gamora. Star Wars is always a fun pickup for me, and Marshall is most welcome in the collection.
Tiya Sircar voiced Sabine Wren in Star Wars: Rebels. She’s went on to be in The Good Place, Supergirl and spirit riding free. It looks like she’s breaking out of the voice acting roles, so here’s hoping she has a long career!
Taylor Gray voiced Ezra Bridger on Rebels. It’s pretty much his only role, but what a role. Ezra is one of the best new character creations Star Wars has had in the last 20 years – and a very welcome addition to my collection.
Bastille is a great alt-rock band consisting of Dan Smith, Kyle Simmons, Will Farquarson and Chris Wood. I had the chance to see them preform live at Music Midtown 2017 and when I got a chance to get Bad Blood signed by all of them – I jumped at the chance as they were very very good and were one of the bright spots of that weekend!
Coolio was one of the rap gods of the early 90s. Gangsta’s Paradise and 1,2,3,4 were two of my childhood jams and his appearance in Batman Forever was pretty dope. When you get a chance to make a very cool and cheap pickup – you take it.
