Two more guests have been announced for Retro Con 2019! Continuing the 40th anniversary celebration of the classic sci-fi television show Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Felix Silla (along with Gil Gerard)will be in attendance who played Twiki in nearly every episode. Through Silla’s emoting in the costume and voice characterizations by the legendary Mel Blanc, the feisty character made his indelible mark on TV pop culture!
Silla has also had many other notable roles throughout his 50-year career including the “hair follicle-enriched” Cousin Itt in the classic tv series The Addams Family, one of the “Dinks” in Spaceballs, Lucifer in the original Battlestar Galactica series, a hang-gliding ewok in Return of the Jedi, and the peculiar space alien “Meathead” in Meatballs Part II.
Also joining this year's growing guest list is toy and puppet designer Tim Clarke! The "King of Gross" is the co-creator of the '80s cult favorite toy lines Boglins and Sectaurs! He is also notable for his work in Jim Henson productions, where he designed and sculpted the Mystics in the Dark Crystal, and designed "Traveling Matt" for Fraggle Rock! Tim will be in Vendor Row 2 at the show both days. Stop by his table to check out his newest Boglins, Sectaurs, and Totims products.
