    I will list some TFs from G1, its the series I am most familiar with, and you must cast the voices. It could be anyone: singer, actor, TV, film, whatever.
    You can also add a bot or two. Or three, four, five if you wish.
    Here goes;

    Optimus Prime:
    Ratchet:
    Wheeljack:
    Bumblebee:
    Jazz:
    Grimlock:
    Blaster:
    Perceptor:
    Arcee:
    Ultra Magnus:
    Megatron:
    Starscream:
    Soundwave:
    Shockwave:
    Thrust:
    Astrotrain:
    Blitzwing:
    Cyclonus:

    ...have fun.

    Well, if I was making my own TF series, I'd probably stick with performers with at least SOME voice acting experience, but then I wouldn't be slavish to having them do little more than G1 impersonations, either...

    Optimus Prime - Diedrich Bader
    Ratchet - Corey Burton, doing his Animated voice
    Wheeljack - Hank Azaria
    Bumblebee - Billy West
    Jazz - Either Billy Dee Williams, or Phil Lamarr doing his best Billy Dee
    Grimlock - Jess Harnell doing his Movie Ironhide voice
    Blaster - Phil Lamarr
    Perceptor - Jeff Bennett doing his John Cleese/"Lord Bravery" voice
    Arcee - Tara Strong doing her Batgirl voice
    Ultra Magnus - Kurtwood Smith
    Megatron - David Warner
    Starscream - Mark Hamill
    Soundwave - Keith David
    Shockwave - Burton again, doing his Paul Frees voice rather than his G1
    Thrust - Dunno. Probably wouldn't use him extensively, since he was never a character that really stood out to me to begin with.
    Astrotrain - IMO George Carlin would have been the perfect Astrotrain for so many reasons, but he's dead now, so I really don't know.
    Blitzwing - Something different than Animated, that's for sure...I like a Man-E-Faces homage as much as the next kid of the '80s, but I wouldn't be in a big hurry to run the well dry.
    Cyclonus - Heck if I know. I'd probably worry about Galvatron first, and then I'd probably only use HIM if Nimoy was still alive to do it.

    A couple others I'd probably pick:

    Ironhide - Gregg Berger (a la Kay, "MIB: The Series")
    Prowl - Jeff Bennett doing his Animated voice
    Hound - R. Lee Ermey
    Elita-1 - Lucy Lawless
    Alpha Trion - Peter Cullen

    Rumble/Frenzy - Phil Lamarr doing his Chris Rock/Osmosis Jones
    Motormaster - Clancy Brown (a bit rougher than Luthor, though)
    Dragstrip - Someone with what I'd call a good NASCAR drawl
