    I wish he were called Nemesis Rodimus or something, Rodimuscron just sounds awful. Or hell, just have Overlord call him Rodimus, but like a mocking way, like he knows Rodimus is still inside but can't stop his body from the actions it does.

    Samoa Joe...as Predaking...I love it. Probably won't save it though.

    Hasbro is paying the actors. Machinima is paying the writers.

    Optimus Primal not voiced by Gary Chalk is such a massive fail - if these shows weren't such garbage, i'd actually be disappointed.

    Also, Rodimus Unicronus is now Rodimus Cron? What a weird name.

    So this is the full cast? Really? I hope it's good but that's so few characters, I hope more are added and this isn't really the final list of cast and characters. May Primus be with us all.

    Any reason we didn’t spring for Gary chalk...?

    Also, matpat will probably make a better swoop than computron...why did they not just use the full names of the youtubers and list their channels and user names separately?

    Chalk is based in Vancouver. POTP is based in the US. Casting Chalk in this would cost a lot of Money.

    I blame Furman being so god damn out-of-touch for that, not IDW. On a level, taking into account what the Cybertronians are, it makes sense but it does not translate to a species with many more shades of grey. IDW respected the creative decisions Furman has made but have worked hard to distance themselves from it since then. An outright retcon would have been too jarring and I'm glad they didn't. I hate retcons. The efforts Arcee has shown in accepting her changes mean a lot more.

    That’s pretty good news for this production.

    Unfortunately, it won’t save the limited animation or sub-par dialog/story... It’s actually fairly lacking in characterization also. The characters for some reason feel temporary; like this series has also felt- so far... with no real notable interactions between any characters.

    But, sweet that they hired a bunch of famous people... I guess...? Feels like an executive move to me.

    Sad Gary won't be Primal, but very happy the character will evidently be prominently featured. Looking forward to it. I've enjoyed the series so far for what it is, warts and all.

    I didn't see Peter Cullen OR Optimus Prime on thr list. I read the 1st 3 or 4 pages to see if anyone mentioned it. I hope he comes back I wanna see Orion Pax transform into Optimus Prime haha! As a kid in '84, '85, it wasn't quite like that but I still dig it. I wonder how they will do it in the POTP anime.

    If this really is the "FULL" list, it would indicate that OP is dead and gone, not returning in any major capacity, maybe as a force ghost here or there but otherwise he's out and Primal is in

    Well, I’ve got some bad news.

    I just spoke with Garry Chalk and he was not approached for the role. He did say that it being recorded in America is probably made it cost prohibitive due to extra travel expenses.

    Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
