    Tony Todd is appearing at the Pittsburgh Toy Show this weekend and I was lucky enough to get a few minutes to talk to him. When I pulled out a figure of The Fallen for him to sign, he seemed excited to talk about Transformers Prime and said that he has already recorded 6 episodes and is going in for another 6 soon. He said of his character Dreadwing - from what I recall:
    "He's sort of somewhere in the middle, not sure if he belongs with Megatron or Optimus and sort of plays both sides. He's a great character!"

    So it looks like Dreadwing is going to be a fairly developed character!

    AWESOME!

    But What do you mean you DIDN'T ask him to do Dreadwing's voice? You fail me yet again, Forum Users.

    But this still awesome!

    Herald of Unicron perhaps? I hope he pulls off this side switching better than Sideways though. Although... six episodes? And we have six episodes left in season one? Hmmm...

    Oh hell yes!!! I can't wait to see the interaction between him and the cons if he's not fully loyal. Maybe Starscream will even try to recruit him.

    This sounds freaking awesome. Specially because we'll have a good, important character to have Tony's voice.

    Maybe he and Starscream will be in their own faction...

    Yeah - the minute you whip out a camera at these autograph things they want to charge you an extra $20 nowadays. Don't worry, I got my facts straight...assuming Mr. Todd has them straight, you never know.

    Oh yeah, its the new trend at these shows. Its become standard at these shows that they charge you just for an autograph, then want another $20 to have a picture taken.

    He was a great guy though, really nice - and like I said, seemed very excited to be a part of Transformers!

    He is an actor. Just sayin' :p 


    I hope any faction switching is played in a Doubledealer fashion. I want two separate robot modes.

    I'm going to bet he's either a Herald of Unicron who goes behind both Optimus and Megatron's backs. Yet his cover is that he serves Starscream... but in reality he serves Unicron.

    Happy to see Tony Todd back, and in a much better role then the crap villain The Fallen was!

    To the OP, cool that you got to talk to Tony Todd! And even cooler that he gave you a tidbit about Dreadwing! Sounds like a Sideways-type character.

    Or maybe it'll be the other way around. Maybe Dreadwing will recruit Starscream since he's now rogue?

    I hope he still has the badass The Fallen voice, I loved that voice.

    It takes me a little while to get to my point in this.

    I've been thinking the Face in the season two trailer might have been the Fallens since they advertise it with the con symbol like they did with ROTF. If you look carefully his face does have some elements similar to the Con symbol.

    If Dreadwing is not on either faction perhaps he is voiced by The Fallen because it will turn out he really is the Fallen.

    But I doubt it.

    Lucky duck. Sounds awesome, was kinda worried Dreadwing wouldn't be in it much and this has got me reassured he'll be AWESOME.

    Wow! Obviously Dreadwing is going to be quite the character.
