    Hah, that was good, loved the bit about all of the bitching we do. But what made it funny, to me, is the "I am the Eggman." Sorry, but I loved that bit. Anyways sounds pretty reassuring for the Welker fans out there, of course, I'm in the same boat.

    Sounds good. Cool to hear that they're pulling for Welker like they did for Cullen. He's right though, in the end it's Bay's choice in the end for Welker. Who knows, maybe that he's seen the reaction caused by the inclusion of Cullen, he might be a lot more apt to the idea of having Welker.

    :D  So much for the rediculous notion that fans had nothing to do with it.

    I love this line on SDCC:

    "And what did one learn at the place? That morbid obesity is a huge problem in the United States?"

    I am very happy about Cullen, beyond everything else that I remembered from the Transformers of my childhood, was Prime's voice. His and Vader's were clearly the coolest voices from my childhood.

    Welker, eh, I'm OK with or without him. Not that he didn't do a good job, but Megatron's voice just didn't have the magic that Prime's did.

    As far as voice actors go, all I ever truly wanted was Cullen as Prime, and now we have that. Well done Don.

    Yes, now that we finally have Cullen everything seems to be looking up. For me at least. I was going to go see the movie no matter what, but I'm really anticipating it now, because I'm going to hear the voice of MY Prime for the first time since the original series. Which is really awesome in my opinion.

    Shame that nothing has been said about Welker, but I guess we'll just have to let Bay make his own decision. If he gets it that's great, but if not I won't die. I mean, we've got Cullen... and that's more than I originally hoped for.

    Kudos to you and everyone else that made this happen Don.

    I hate the fact that they recasted Cullen, abandoned the chopper Soundwave idea and I was glad they were going to do something new with Arcee, I saw great potential there. The only thing that would make this situation worse is to recast Welker and get a sound a like for Starscream.<HATES class=inlineimg title="Throw Rocks" smilieid="133" alt="" border="0" src="images/smilies/Throw.gif" Cullen<img casted they that fact the Cullen<HATES />

    I'm sure you can find episodes of Go-Bots on EBAY. You might be happy with those changes.

    Oh yes. Get a huge name celebrity to voice a ficticous character and expect them to be thrilled by it. :tongue: 

    Sorry. But I've had my fill of big name primadonnas not giving
    100% to a personality they care nothing about.

    How the rest of it goes remains to be seen but this is a good start.
