    Darn, that sucks. A lot of us, myself included, would have loved for him to return. Someone posted in another thread not so long ago that he could still have recorded his lines and then E-mailed them over here, but that's now we know that's not happening.

    Well, in any case, let's hope they don't screw up Primal too badly. Ron Perlman is a good voice actor, but we still have no idea how this version of the character will be written, which in my opinion is a much bigger concern than just what he'll sound like. I think we're all in agreement that this trilogy doesn't exactly have the best writing, so I'm a bit worried they aren't going to do him justice.

    I've had a feeling that this would be the case. It's still sad but still it's good to have some explanation.

    I hope Primal will end up being the highlight of the POTP series like how Megatron was in CW and Overlord in TR.

    I was referring to them bringing him back for Titans Return, but he could come back for PotP. He has a toy in the line. Hasbro wants to sell toys. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets revived via ancient Cybertronian Primus magic MacGuffin, but he comes back as Orion Pax because that was his original form. And then he digivolves to Optimus Prime or however they handle that gimmick. Or maybe they won't even address it. They did Combiner Wars. No actual combining. All the combiners are just giant robots. They did Titans Return. Only one Titanmaster in the show and he never turns into a head.

    Finally a role that Mark Hamill will get that is not a slap in the face to his legacy and talent. I am glad he's come to Transformers. The latest Star wars was a complete let down. He's gonna be more beloved in this fandom. Welcome back home Mark Hamill. I loved your Joker.

    He's busy battling with David Kaye on YouTube.

    Because they can't voice act :p 

    Ah, so they don't pay much probably.

    Haven't they heard of the internet? I know it's kinda new... but... :lol

    Ouch. Spoiler much? I tend to not be fully caught up on the latest Transformers shows only because it's better to stretch them out so I don't have nothing Transformers to watch. That and my DVR is so full I spend most of the time trying to keep it under 110% (it's always at 98% to 100% :lol  I stretched my DVR over the years it added on almost double the amount I originally could have. ;)

    I'm sure this was addressed long ago, but why is Frank Welker not a part of any of this?

    Garry deserves his due soon. Hell all of the Vancouver VA's need to do a new Transformers project.

    I just binge watched TR and my stomach turned when I realised potp will be yet another round of Starscream adoration :puke: 
    Yeah, OP will be back too soon enough.
    I doubt it will take three episodes for him to become Orion Pax.
    The only good thing about TR were Fort Max, Hot Rod, Perceptor, Overlord, Computron, Devy and Menasor really.
    I hope we'll see more of them.
    I don't even know how they came up with the lines for the others.
    And Megatron's "I'm a cool moody anti-hero act is becoming very very old.
