    Here's who are confirmed:

    Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime
    Fred Tatasciore as Megatron, Ratchet, Metroplex
    Sam Riegel as Starscream
    Nolan North as Cliffjumper, Brawl, Bruticus
    Issac C. Singleton JR as Soundwave
    Troy Baker as Jazz, Jetfire and Kickback
    Steve Blum as Shockwave, Swindle, Sharpshot
    Gregg Berger as Grimlock
    Keith Szarabajka as Ironhide

    When I first saw the Kotaku video there was scene with Perceptor speaking to Prime it sounds like Tom Kane is voicing him.

    so any other ideas of who's voicing who?

    Steve Blum is doing Shockwave? Wat. I knew he was ranged but I didn't know he could do a pompous english accent.

    What role?

    Shockwave was not in the WFC campaign, he only showed up as DLC for Escalation and his chassis for multiplayer.

    In Escalation he (and the other DLC characters) simply reused the generic voices from the multiplayer robots.

    I don't know who is doing the voice and maybe it's just me, but Vortex sounds a lot like Adam Baldwin.

    I suggested John in another thread a while back. I questioned why he has never done Transformers voices before. If he can play Marcus Fenix, and Bender, then why can't he play a mixture of the two?

    Blum voiced Shockwave in the DS version (Behind The Voice Actors - Voice Compare: Transformers - Shockwave)

    DiMaggio voiced Sideways and Lennox in the ROTF game and he recently voiced Leadfoot in the DOTM Film, Evac in the Universal Ride and Vogel in Prime

    Eh, I don't follow the Bay movies, but that's awesome that he has done some Transformers work.

    And who is Vogel?

    I agree with you. But DiMaggio's Sideways in the ROTF Game is really awesome. Vogel is the human that appears in the episode Tunnel Vision.

    John DiMaggio has been awesome as Sideways, Leadfoot, and Vogel, regardless if the former two were from the Bayverse. Just saying, you can bite John's shiny metal ass...

    Anyway, as I've been saying for months, it's kind of a shame that Steve Blum, Nolan North, and Fred Tatasciore voice like half of the characters. I love those guys to death, but would it kill them to hire someone else? Would've loved to have seen Corey Burton as Shockwave, Fred Willard as Swindle, or something. Hell, Swindle has basically the exact same voice as Barricade. Again, no disrespect to Blum, North and Tatasciore, but I would like to see more variety in the future. In DOTM Tatasciore voiced Megatron and Ratchet again, plus Sideswipe and Bumblebee, rather than try to get Robert Foxworth or other voices back (though there's points for them since they got Jess Harnell back for Ironhide).

    But, that's just my own fanboy dream and rant for Corey Burton, Fred Willard, Phil LaMarr, etc. I'm sure I'll get used to Blum and North voicing everyone.

    If Tom Kane is voicing Perceptor, then that completes the Nazi Zombies quartet (Nolan North, Steve Blum, Fred Tatasciore, and Tom Kane) in these games.

    Corey Burton as Shockwave would of been amazing, but I think it will be interesting to see how Blum pulls him off.

    But I have gotta agree that Fred Willard reprising his role as Swindle would of been so brilliant, could of been epic to hear that suave voice in the middle of a firefight, but I guess he would of had a hefty price tag on him.

    I'm guessing that Blum, North and Tatasciore are cheaper than most VA's? Considering they are in like... EVERYTHING.
    Missing out on having Phil LaMarr as Jazz was a surprise though, he usually pops up in a lot of things too...

    I'll bet it's just a slightly British TFP Starscream.

    I wish Fred was Swindle. But his little 'incident' probably killed his chances of doing something for a while.

    Yikes, didn't know about what happened to Willard... Yyyyeah, I don't see that happening for sure now... either way I'm sure dialogue recording would of been done waaaaay before that "problem" anyway.
    Still though... would of been so awesome.
