    I hope they don't renew the contract with Machinima for any more if these. They're 10 minute shorts stretched to 10 chapters of 1/4 frame rate nothing. Let Boulder actually have a go at the cartoon. They've been begging to do a proper G1 revival. Many of them grew up on the Marvel UK book, so they know what's up.

    Pearman as Primal sounds cool but I don't think his voice fits the caring yet stern father figure BW Primal was. But the paraphrase the G2 comic, This is not your father's Maximal.

    Predaking is bigger than the other Combiners so he certainly CAN do that!

    I have no idea who Samoa Joe is. Getting Mark Hamill and Ron Perlman on board is interesting, though it really does seem now that they’re going the “celebrity star power” route to draw interest in these crappy “shows”.

    I wonder if they even considered or approached Gary Chalk at all.

    Mark Hamill as the Fallen, that sounds awesome. Wish I can say the same thing for the show.

    If I had one of those 3rd Party Predakings........ I'd be quite tempted to try this.

    One word: Money.

    Anywho, cool to see big names for voicing Transformers, but I don't think this is even enough to convince me to watch the series...

    You guys, SAMOA FRIGGIN' JOE. I pretty much don't watch Raw anymore, but him and Finn Balor are the only reasons I care about wrestling on Mondays these days. Joe has an awesome voice and perfect delivery, and he's gonna do an awesome job in this.

    (And now that I think about it I'm pretty sure Finn Balor needs in on this too, he can be real funny when he tries and the IDW comics aren't shy about giving English/European accents to characters...)

    Freaking yes, I was just thinking to myself yesterday about how nice it\'d be to have Gregg Berger come back for Grimlock once again, and lo and behold here he is.
