    No one has posted this here yet, but it was on both the Allspark & Seibertron:

    From the AllSpark:

    TF Animated cast list

    Bumblebee - Bumper Robinson (apparently in a Chris Rock-esque performance)
    Bulkhead - Bill Fagerbakke (Patrick from Spongebob)
    Prowl - Jeff Bennett
    Ultra Magnus - also Jeff Bennett
    Arcee - Susan Blu (also the voice director, she was also Arcee in G1)
    Blackarachnia - Cree Summer
    Jazz - Phil Lamarr (for those of you who were asking)
    Corey Burton - Shockwave (he was G1 Shockwave too)
    Tom Kenny - A Constructicon (Tom Kenny is Spongebob, among many other roles)
    A garbage truck (Junkion?) - "Weird Al" Yankovic




    From Seibertron:

    Grimlock will be voiced by David Kaye who did a SNL Phil Hartman Frankenstien-y voice as an example. He's also doing a new guy named Lugnut.

    Corey Burton, besides doing Megatron & Shockwave is doing Ratchet too.

    Blurr will be reprised by John Moshita, from G1.

    They already wrapped up two seasons, 29 total episodes, with the 90 minute special (basically a 3 episode pilot movie like the original G1 pilot).

    It's traditional voice over work, where they are all together for the recording, not like anime dubs where each actor only has their lines to record.

    well, if the AllSpark & Seibertron were joking about it, then I guess so.

    If that's fact then it's an impressive cast, maybe this show won't totally blow/suck/bite/whatever after all. ;)

    I just KNEW Phil LaMarr was gonna voice Jazz.

    Don't know who Bumper Robinson is, so hopefully he does a good job voicing Bumblebee (Dan Gilvezan would have a WAY better job, since he WAS Bumblebee in the G1 cartoon).

    Bulkead with the guy who voiced Patrick in Spongebob?...Wait, maybe that actually MIGHT work out...

    Jeff Bennett as Prowl...not so much. I mean, the guy voiced Johnny Bravo. I honestly can't see this guy voicing some ninja-like robot that transforms into a police motorcycle. Or voicing Ultra Magnus. I bet Jeff won't even deal with voicing Ultra Magnus then. "I can't deal with this character right now!"

    Susan Blu coming back as Arcee? That's great news. Glad we're getting a veteran to voice someone. :) 

    Cree Summer as...Blackarachnia? Wait, WHAT!? Blackarachnia's gonna be in this show? That's a shocker. But Cree Summer, the same chick who voice acted in Kids Next Door, wouldn't really fit well with Blackarachnia. This character's supposed to be a badass fembot, not some singing wannabe. UGH.

    Corey Burten as Shockwave is awesome. :D  Finally get to hear the ole' One-Eyed Decepticon since 1984. It should be interesting for him to voice Ratchet and Megatron...

    I STILL don't like the idea of having Tom Kenny be Starscream, or should I say, Spongestar Squarescream? :banghead: 

    Weird Al Yankovic? Are you shitting me? That bad spoof singer couldn't voice a robot, better yet act like one. But I guess it fits him, voicing a robot that transforms into a garbage truck. I smell Wreck-Gar...

    David Kaye voicing Prime, I'm curious as to what he'll sound like. But since he's also voicing Grimlock, my curiosity is at its peak. I can just hear Grimlock saying "Yesssssssss..." from Kaye's Megatron voice.

    I'm also glad that John Moschita's gonna be reprising his role as Blurr. Can't wait to see him fast-talk again. "OhmygodI'mbackinTransformersAnimatedWhoowhoowhoo!"

    Overall, the voice selection is...decent. Some I hate, and some I'm curious as to what they'll sound like.

    This is how ALL original dubs are done. Its just that when a show is ported and translated the actual work and timing is allready done and all you can do is match what is presented.

    Wich is why all original dubs are superior to the redubs. With a few exeptions.


    Anyway: overall, without knowing a thing really about the show the mere voice and character list is orgasmic.
