Mike Pollock, the voice actor for Eggman, left a rather curious comment on YouTube yesterday, during a conversation with a one Roonco Prime regarding the old cast appearing at “anything Sonic related.” Mr Pollock said that he couldn’t speak for the rest of the cast, however, “You might be able to see me very soon, stay tuned for a major announcement.”
Whilst the video is over a year old, the comments were made only yesterday. Assuming this is in context with the full conversation and the video, it might suggest a possible appearance at Sega’s Sonic Boom convention or Summer of Sonic… Or maybe it means… something else entirely?
Anyone like to have a guess? Here is the conversation in full for you to have a look at.
Roonco: had to laugh at that point, genuinely, even moreso when I come back in 10 months and saw that you’d seen it as well. I remember Jason Griffith and Pete Capella at a recent (1 year ago?) convention and Mr. Griffith using one of Roger Smith’s lines and I have to ask, will the old cast ever show up at anything Sonic-related again? I assumed I’d ask you, given that you’ve worked with both casts.
Mike: It all depends on who’s doing the inviting, and who’s being invited. I’d probably show up if I was asked, but I can’t speak for my colleagues.
Roonco: Fair enough, and I’d hope to see you soon! I also have to thank you for your work for Dan Green; that showed real character on your part. Thank you also for your the information about your coach. But, be honest, you’re sick of me messaging you constantly, aren’t you? Sorry!
Mike: You might be able to see me soon. Stay tuned for a major announcement.
Well folks, the comments await you. What do you think? Appearance at Boom/SOS? Generations DLC? Appearance at Comic Con or some other event? Or… we’re going to be invaded by space demons and Mike Pollock will save us all with his best Eggman voice?
The speculation, is yours!
Very special thanks to ‘Multiman’ for the tip on this one.
