I think that Bauersfeld was on the list of attendees for a Comic-Con thats scheduled for later on this year for my city.

EDIT - Nope. Tim Rose is the dude that's showing up and not Bauersfeld. My bad. -

So yeah, that's a bummer that he's gone now.

Yeah, Tim Rose (whom I've met) was in the Ackbar costume, but Bauersfeld provided the voice. They were both back for TFA. Guess they'll have to sadly recast if Ackbar is going to be in EP8 :(

Still, he had a damn good innings. And "It's a Trap" memes will live on.
