Robert Axelrod has carved a career in show business that runs the gamut.  Born and raised in New York City, he did commercials and theater as a child and teen, eventually ending up in the Soho Avant-garde Theater scene in a show called “Little Trips”, then Off-Broadway in a play called “The Destroyers”.  Axelrod left acting for the world of music.  He spent eight years as a working rock musician playing electric bass and singing in folk, rock, and soul bands.  Music brought him to Los Angeles where he decided to return to acting, a decision he never regrets.

 

Since then, Mr. Axelrod has appeared in over thirty feature films including four with Charles Bronson, the Sci-Fi hit remake “The Blob” with Kevin Dillon and  many others.  Television appearances include guest star roles on “Amazing Stories”, “Star Trek Voyager”, “Tim And Eric’s Awesome Show”, and “The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers.  He also starred in the Michael Jackson music video “Stranger in Moscow”, and is in the soon-to-be-released horror dark comedy, “The Revenant”.

 

Mr. Axelrod is also a busy voice over artist.  He is the voice of Lord Zedd and Finster on the “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers”.  The Lord Zedd voice is one of the most recognizable character voices around.  He voiced Armadillomon and Wizardmon on “Digimon, Microchip, The Punisher’s sidekick, on “Spiderman”, Rico on “Robotech”,  and has voiced countless Anime features including “Akira”, “The Big O”, “Cowboy Bebop”, “Brain Scratch”, et al.  As Lord Zedd, he starred in both the first Power Rangers feature film and the wildly popular live show that toured the country.  He was a regular character on Saban Entertainment’s “Wowser” series (as Ratso Catso), “Journey To The Heart of the World” (as Scarface), “Hallo Spencer” (as Elmer), and more.  He just finished narrating the mockumentary “Safety First: The Rise of Women and voicing four Anime series, “Gaiking”, “Danguard Ace”, “Captain Horlock”, “The Adventures of Nadja”, and “Fist of the North Star”.

 

 

About Tsubasacon

Tsubasacon is an annual convention currently held at the Big Sandy Superstore Arena and Riverfront Ballroom and Conference Center.

In 2006 Tsubasacon moved to its current home in Huntington, WV and has grown in scale dramatically over its 14-year tenure while still maintaining it's small hometown con charm. Popular large events include the Masquerade, Anime Music Video Contest, Concerts, Game Shows, and the Saturday Dance.

Tsubasacon is a three-day fun-filled event that offers late-night dances, video programming, gaming rooms, and many informative guest and fan panels. Many of the attendees take advantage of the opportunity to cosplay at the convention, and there are many gatherings for fans of different anime and manga series.

In 2015 Tsubasacon is expanded into the arena as well as the convention center.
