    I was watching some of the earlier G1s and the two went head to head after Cliffjumper tried to snipe Megatron.
    Just wondering if anyone else thinks, besides me, that the two are a bit overdue for the silver screen?
    I expected CJ to appear in the first film and although Ravage appears in ROTF, Laserbeak is criminally absent. Thoughts?

    I agree. I think they should add Laserbeak for the 3rd film. If they planning on Soundwave to return in the 3rd film, they should include Laserbeak.

    Do you think LB should incorporate the mini TFs (Insecticons) like Ravage did, making them a standard issue for spy bots, or have his own special talent?

    I'd like to see Laserbeak, but see no point in including Cliffjumper. Especially since his status appears to have been permanently downgraded to 'Bumblebee repaint'.

    Yeah, repaint WITHOUT a new head, mind you. And seeing as new heads are the thing for repaints this year, it looks as if it is permanet.

    Its a real shame. He is such a unique character, much different to BB. Very pro active and stubborn. Like in a couple of G1 episodes I watched recently where he insists on shooting Megatron and accuses Mirage of being a Decepticon spy.

    Yeh, still, why the need to just have him a BB repaint? They were completely different cars/characters waaay back in G1.

    I'm all for Laserbeak, but I don't know about Cliffjumper's status. He's already been in the movie continuity, but I think he should come to Earth and scan a Dodge Challenger. It's close enough to BB's alt mode for him to have the same basic Transforming scheme and body type.

    As for Laserbeak's abilities, I say he should have the "Reedman/Insecticons", along with his G1 surveilance abilities.

    Well, they had an identical alt. mode in the toys, so they are kinda holding to a tradition of CJ being a repaint of BB.

    I'd rather see Wheeljack over Cliffjumper. Cliffjumper's a dick anyways. No need for him in the movie-verse. Besides he's got the sweet role as BB's permanent repaint guy. Can't beat that! :)

    I want Cliffjumper complete with Casey Kasem's voice. He just retired from radio...he's got time to voice Cliffjumper!

    Oh, cool. I did not know that. Who else is still alive that they haven't used for voice over in the films?

    'the ones we have'? What do you mean? :confused:

    A lot of them...Michael Bell and Jack Angel are both in their 70's and still working, for one.

    Michael Bell is certainly somebody that I'd like to see back, it's not like he DIDN'T try! He auditioned for both the first movie and Animated but alas, it was not meant to be...

    That's criminal. He's a legend because of Transformers, G.I. Joe and Voltron. I can understand that Animated was intended to be an entirely different cast, but the movies seem to be different, obviously, with Peter Cullen and Frank Welker at least getting to do Soundwave. But the fact that he has to audition for the movie, and that Michael Bay probably has no earthly idea who Michael Bell is and didn't hire him...that's freshly bottled lamesauce.

    See also, Welker auditioning for Megatron and not getting it.
