    ...Optimus Prime in the new cartoon. He has sent an email to Heather and Simon of Auto Assembly, where he attended this year, confirming it. They are going to try and get an audio clip of him to announce it.

    All kinds of strange. If Chalk is Megatron that would just be nuts.

    I think he will sound good. I can almost see an Optimus talking somewhat like BW Megs.

    I don't believe it. Stranger things have been hapining lately though. Look at the Bears.

    ...wow...

    Going to be weird after hearing him as Megatron for the last... what... six or more years (BW S1 to 3, BM & the AEC Trilogy). The only Megatron I think he didn't do was RID and I'm not sure, because I could never catch RID on TV.

    Either way, this is the same guy who did Soon Tendo in Ranma 1/2... I think he's an exceptional VA and will do an awesome job as long as he's given the leeway to do what he thinks is good for the character. Much like he gave some of BW Megatron many of his endearing qualities that made him great... yeeessss....

    Hopefully, we get a really cool Prime this time.

    Well so much for the hopes of any Neil Kaplan doing Prime...It would be nice to see him and Chalk in the show in some capacity though. I like Joe's idea of Chalk as Megs, it can be like...Bizarro-formers or something.

    David Kaye...weird! I was hoping that since this was being made in LA, Peter might take a stab at it again.

    There will never be a budget big enough to have Peter Cullen do a Transformers cartoon. The RID Producers more or less said that after they contacted Cullen with an offer that was laughed at by the agent, or so sources say.

    David Kaye was General Hawk in GI Joe wasn't he?

    He's got a lot of range and played a few heroes....

    Wow, I didn't realize how talented he really is until I googled him. General Hawk, Prof. X, Apocalypse, only to name a few.

    Most odd I say ,but intriguing. I like his performance as the voice of BW Megatron. Been all the Megatrons from the late 90's to the recent TFs anime to become now Optimus Prime in the TFs show. Odd indeed.

    He did Savage/ Noble's voice in BM didn't he? It sounded like a 'kind' Megatron voice to me anyway...if thats the voice he uses for Optimus I think it wouldn't be all that bad at all.
