Vincent Tong Joins BABSCon 2022 in a Flash

Vincent Tong Joins BABSCon 2022 in a Flash

It’s BABSBomb Day 4. The lights darken, a dramatic bass guitar thump repeats. You feel the intro deep in your bones and you know that we at BABSCon 2022 can only be announcing one man at long, long last: FLASH! (ahh-AHHHH!) Or, as we know this savior of the universe, Vincent Tong.

(Check out Vincent’s Flashy announcement video here!)

My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls fans know Vincent as several ponies and assorted creatures. He’s chill Student 6 member Sandbar, the charmless Prince Blueblood, mean old Garble the dragon, purveyor of pastry Donut Joe, the oh-so-fey Feather Bangs, and of course, FLASH…Sentry, waifu-stealer extraordinaire.

But you may also know Vincent as Prince Kasef in The Dragon Prince, Kai in Ninjago and Lego Ninjago, The Mandarin in Iron Man: Armored Adventures, Mega Man in Mega Man: Fully Charged, Ant Nekton in The Deep, Daniel in Voltron Force, Detective Matsuda in Death Note, and so many more.

Vincent joins Guests of Honor Nicole Oliver, Andy Price, and Peter New. But don’t worry, we still have far more to come beyond the last day of the BABSBomb!

Register now so you don’t miss Vincent and friends, book that hotel room, maybe volunteer if you want to help make the con possible, and come have fun with us at BABSCon…AND BEYOND!

BABSCon 2022 Goes to the Peter New-niverse!

BABSCon 2022 Goes to the Peter New-niverse!

It’s BABSBomb Day 3, and times like these call for a stallion of action. A stallion of few words, sage wisdom, and great strength. A stallion so secure in his masculinity that he would think nothing of going to a picnic in a gorgeous dress with the most fabulous beehive mane and impeccable glamor makeup just to make his sister happy…or at least the talented man who plays him. Eeyup! Peter New is making his triumphant return to BABSCon.

(Watch Peter’s awesome announcement video here!)

In addition to playing Big Macintosh, Doctor Hooves, Goldie Delicious, and many more on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Peter has voiced musical monkey Sunil—and almost 70 others!— on Littlest Pet Shop, and appeared in Megaman Fully Charged, Inuyasha, and most recently, Ninjago. His recent projects have included the multi-award-winning short film, WoodMan, and the podcast/radio drama, Voyage of the Oeverwal.

Peter joins Guests of Honor Nicole Oliver and Andy Price.

Register now, book your hotel room, maybe volunteer for us, and come play with us in outer space April 15–17, 2022. So anyway, go to BABSCon…AND BEYOND!

BABSCon 2022 Gets Galactic with Andy Price

BABSCon 2022 Gets Galactic with Andy Price

Our BABSBomb continues in epic, even galactic, fashion. You want art? You want humor? You want one of the nicest people in the My Little Pony world? Well, we’ve heard you. “By your command,” it’s Andy Price!

(Click here for Andy’s awesome intro video!)

And what makes this veteran of the IDW MLP titles so very “…and BEYOND!”, you ask? Simple! He’s one of the very few creators who worked on all the My Little Pony: Friendship (and FIENDship) is Magic comics from issue #1 to the final issue, the end of the amazing “Season 10” arc.

To list Andy’s credits individually would be a fool’s errand. As we said, drew Friendship is Magic #1 and has continued through to the end, including Micro-Series, Friends Forever, FIENDship is Magic, Equestria Girls, the Holiday Special, the Movie Prequel and Season 10. Outside of MLP, he’s also contributed art to such wildly varying titles as Star Trek: Waypoint and John Carpenter’s Tales for a HalloweeNight, among others.

Andy joins Nicole Oliver among our Guests of Honor, with 3 more to be announced this week alone…and that’s just for starters!

So register now—and don’t forget to book your hotel room to party with Andy and our other guests this April.

BABSCon 2022 Voyages with Nicole Oliver

BABSCon 2022 Voyages with Nicole Oliver

As we come out of suspended animation to continue our voyage through the stars, we’re ready to hit you with a BABSBomb of amazing announcements. 

First up: She raises and sets the Sun. She sends ponies to the moon, hugs trees, and teaches Ponyville’s fillies and colts. Actually, she doesn’t do any of these things, but the characters she voices do because she’s the princess of our hearts, Nicole Oliver! If anyone embodies the BABSCon 2022 spirit of “…AND BEYOND!” it’s her.

(Watch Nicole’s awesome intro video here!)

To fans of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic and Equestria Girls, her sultry voice is instantly recognizable as Princess Celestia, Cheerilee, and Tree Hugger, among others. She also starred as Zoe Trent (and many more) on Littlest Pet Shop, Sally & Miranda on Transformers: Energon, and lent her voice to a variety of characters in the Barbie and Ninjago franchises. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

We’re so glad to have Nicole back among our Guests of Honor, and we have 4 more to announce this week!

So don’t miss out! Go register now—and don’t forget to book your room—to join Nicole and all of us at BABSCon as we take you to the stars…AND BEYOND!
