Interviews: Bob Prupis and Dan Gilvezan

In celebration of the "Thrilling 30" year of "Transformers", BWTF has reached through the Space Bridges of time to assemble a collection of interviews from various talents who have contributed to "Transformers" over the years! Today kicks off this series of interviews with a trip back to the beginning of "Transformers"!

First up is an interview with Bob Prupis, former Vice President of Boy's Toys at Hasbro. If it weren't for Mr. Prupis, we may not even have "Transformers" today!

Along with a look at the toy line, we also have a look at the entertainment side via my interview with Dan Gilvezan, voice actor extraordinaire most known for voicing Bumblebee (remember when he could talk?). It's been almost 10 years since BWTF last interviewed Dan, so this was a great opportunity to catch up.
