    I just came across this MovieWeb.com article, via Seibertron, which apparently confirms that Mike Patton, the lead vocalist of the band Faith No More, will be providing the voice of one of the Constructicons in Revenge of the Fallen. Here's the full article text:

    The way I see it, it seems like there are a few discrepancies here, not just with the confusion over the identity of the part (isn't Mixmaster Devastator's head, anyway?) but also the lack of a named source; on the other hand, they're claiming "100% confirmation", which I guess is enough to give it some credence. Patton's done a bit of voice work before in growling, monstrous roles, most notably as "The Darkness" in the Xbox 360 game of the same name; is this the sort of thing we can expect to hear from the RotF Constructicons, then?

    well you were right to put the question mark in your title!!

    Mixmaster isn't the left leg...
    Mixmaster isn't a dump truck...
    The dumptruck isn't the left leg...
    There aren't seven robots that make up Devastator (unless all the toys and art are wrong)

    pretty cool though, he would make a great Decepticon voice!!

    i think theres some truth in it, but how much is anyones guess right now. I'm somewhat sad, we're so close to the film's release and we still dont have a full list of voice actors, we don't have any hi-res photos of any of the transformers as we did last year, and i just feel thier really dragging the suspense out for too long :(  leaving me really hungry for more!
    hopefully in a week or two, we'll get some more information through interviews,leaks, toys and such and then the trailer will hit with star trek, and the my sickness will be cured :D  but until then :'(

    I'll just be thrilled if they don't all sound like fax machines transmitting.

    I stand by my conviction that the remaining Constructicons be voiced by the members of Dethklok.

    Sweet!

    A friend of mine also read an interview with the band Mastodon saying they'd be doing some voicework for ROTF. Now take that with a grain of salt as I can't confirm it, but this Patton rumor does lend some credibility to it.

    Anyway, Mike Patton has an amazing vocal range and I'm curious what he'll be doing with Mixmaster if this turns out to be true.

    Patton also did the vocal effects for the lead vampire in I AM LEGEND, and is voicing the lead on the upcoming Bionic Commando game. No need to have a mid-life crisis over it.

    Cool.

    Can't wait to learn who else is on board to voice any of the new bots in ROTF.
