    If you don't want to be spoiled on who James Remar voiced in DotM, then don't continue reading...

    After seeing DotM I noticed the always amazing James Remar was the voice of Sideswipe in this installment. I'm now curious, since he's also pegged to do a character in Transformers: Prime, whether or not it'll be the same character. My reasons are the following, Peter Cullen continues to voice Optimus Prime in both franchises as well as video game adaptions of the film; Frank Welker voiced Megatron in the video game adaptions of the films and is currently the voice of Megatron in Prime; Steven Blum voiced Starscream in Prime and the video game adaption of DotM; and while he doesn't share the same voice actor, Bumblebee has the same mute gimmick as his film carnation.

    Granted, Tony Todd is voicing a different character which people can argue is an example that it's just a coincidence Remar is in both series', I still get a strong feeling Dreadwing will be similar in vain to the Fallen and was the shows alternative since they've stated they don't want to explore the 13 Primes anytime soon on Transformers: Prime.

    So I want to know what everyone else thinks? I have a very strong suspicion Jame Remar will voice Sideswipe in Prime.

    Not sure if I agree with your reasoning but, It would be lovely to get a movie-style Sideswipe that gets to have a personality, I just thing the movie design and alt mode and everything is MUUUCH more interesting than "Sunstreaker's brother".

    But have him the G2 deco, I love that deco. I wished they'd release a Bayformer Sideswipe in that Deco.

    As for Remar i was thinking he would voice a Mech commander.

    Though I'm not entirely sure who James Remar would be best at voicing for Prime, it doesn't matter to me so much as the fact that I cannot wait to hear him in it. Loved seeing him in Dexter and Jericho, so hearing that he's taking part in Prime is just fantastic.

    And after watching Dark of the Moon, I'd be very happy for him to make a Sideswipe transition onto Prime

    I hope he's Sideswipe, and the vehicle mode is a convertible.

    But I'll have to admit that I would also rather have SS be a Countach or some sort of classic supercar.

    OP so what about Ratchet? :tongue: 

    But one thing I gotta say if there's one bot who has come out better from bayverse, it's Sideswipe I could watch him all day. I would hate to see that Sideswipe go to waste, I would deifnitely want Bayverse Sideswipe in TFPrime even over his G1 incarnation.

    I personally want to see Sunstreaker as a standalone character now that Sideswipe has gotten one. Make him an orange lamborghini-esque car but as a standalone character and I'd be happier than... um... something that's really happy. :lol 

    But wait... was Remar ever confirmed for Prime? I thought it was just Tony Todd.

    Maybe in transformers prime he can be the one who buts heads with op. The reason for it a flashback when his twin brother sunstreaker gets killed then he becomes an hard ass bot.

    They're pretty close, character-wise. Especially the incarnation of Sideswipe in WfC. They should just blend the appearances a little.

    I'm starting to think he isn't in the show and that may have dropped the name as a hint of DOTM.

    Just saw dotm for the second time I thought james remar did a great job as sideswipe. So with that said I hope he voices sideswipe in transformers prime.

    +1, but if they do not add Sunstreaker as well, I would not going to be a happy camper.
