Transformer World 2005 has learned a bit more info on the upcoming Transformers series "Transformers Heroes". As we know, the auditions are taking place in Los Angeles now. The company handling the casting is none other than Susan Blu's Blupka Productions. Susan Blu voiced Arcee in the original G1 movie and cartoon, and also was behind the voice direction for Beast Wars. Also of note, the Optimus Prime character is younger than the rest of the cast, and is described as a Fire Truck. The agents are looking for a voice similar to a "Young Tom Hanks" for Prime. Megatron is being casted with a voice similar to Jeremy Irons aka "Scar" from the Lion King. Since this seems to be a US produced show, with voice acting in LA rather than Canada taking place, let's hope some fan favorite VAs return. If Prime is indeed a Fire Truck, RID Prime VA Neil Kaplan would be the obvious choice, he is as close to Peter Cullen as you can get without a clone. Wally Wingert from RID continues to work in the industry heavily, and would be a great addition, possibly as Bumblebee. And let's not forget that now this is in LA, industry legend Frank Welker (G1 Megatron, Soundwave, etc) would be able to join the cast as, well any of them probably. Hopefully with Susan Blu, an American voice cast, and G1 names galore (see below), we will have the first well done show since Beast Wars. Personal Note: I really think they should roll with Kaplan for Prime. When directed to do so, he nails that role better than anyone Ive heard, plus the guy has already done Prime and digs it. Cant beat that!
