    Still cant quit understand why we absolutely NEED to have Cullen and Welker in the movie in the first place. Don’t get me wrong I love them as VA’s and wouldn’t mind at all having them voice Prime and Megs but frankly as long as they get the best people for the job on this flick I really don’t care who does what.

    In a way, it is linked to G1, if not, based off it. It would be a nice salute to the roots of Transformers, but definitely, its not necessary. It would just up the anticipation factor for us fanboys, thats all.

    No, its not necessary but in a way, it would feel kind of weird if Prime and Megs had different voices. But eh. Here's hoping they do use Cullen and Welker. Or at least not get someone that totally doesn't fit those characters.

    I'd like to see them do the voices, but I wouldn't be disappointed if Kaye and Chalk did the voices either. They've all given alot to the different series and they deserve to shine in a big budget movie like this.

    ah jeez...
    first soundwave not a cassette player and Megatron not a gun. Now a question about Cullen and Welker ?!?
    I would like to suggest that if these 2 va's aren't in the film then we should get orgenized and have petition to have them in the film or even ban the film entirly, and let the studios know about the ban.

    I know It's not nessecary, but damn it, I want it.
    I would sign any letter to the movie execs and Bay that would tell them so!

    Honestly not surprised, but nice to get a clarification on the actual facts.

    And yeah, I do love the two of 'em, but I won't be heartbroken if different actors are chosen. Though, the reasoning for not taking them strikes me as odd. "Old actors = old things"...for one, the younger folks that want to see the movie are -probably- far more attached to the voices of Chalk and Kaye. And, I doubt most people that -would- make the Welker/Cullen=G1 connection would see it as a -bad- thing. But anyway.

    Change is good, when it's done well, I always say.

    if at least cullen isnt in the movie as prime, the movie will be ruined for me. cullen is optimus prime, no two ways about it.

    That's exactly what I was going to say.

    That, and chuckle at Murphy saying that this is the only thing the fanbase agrees on. It's been one of the most debated topics.

    I dont want Kaye and Chalk to be Megs and Prime. I liked them in Beast Wars, but I dont think they're a good match for the REAL Prime and Megatron. And I agree with Valkysas, we NEED Cullen in the movie. He IS Prime. Just imagiane starting the trailer out with a speech his voice, and just a dark void. It would invoke the "That sounds familiar." feeling in anyone that watched the old series back in the day. Then show some cool action sequences with the Transformers, and Im sure those old fans would be fixed to go see the movie. And for anyone who is not familiar with the voice, the trailer would act like any other well done trailer. Cullen is THE Prime, and there is no substute.

    if chalk is prime, I doubt I'd see the movie. he is absolute garbage as optimus prime. I dont know where his talent from BW/BM went, but I definately havent heard it in Armada, Energon, or Cybertron.

    Doesn't matter to me who does the voices, just as long as they're a professional voice actor. There's no point in hiring a celebrity who can't voice act, they'd just end up doing a terrible job.

    The fans? Agree on something? What is this dude smokin'? :p 

    I also don't get the whole "Welker/Cullen MUST be the voices!" thing either. Personally, I still feel that while Cullen works, I don't think Welker's Megatron fits the "big movie" theme. I still feel that if they use a previous Megatron actor, David Kaye has the "charisma" to make Megatron a believable villian.

    Cullin and Welker should be the voices. The studio executives want a proven brand name to be successful and yet it sounds as if they want to screw it up at the same time.

    Hasbro or Murphy should sit dow with Bay and explain to him what happened when they killed off OP in the last movie and what they had to go through in order to bring him back.

    Not a dis to Chalk or Kaye, but the movie will be stronger with the original VA's.

    Best smiley EVER!


    I just hope Bay is open minded enough to consider this. some people just aren't open to outside suggestions. Regardless if it's a good one or not.
