    Not a fan of the new Optimus voice actor, but for some reason I'm getting some serious XJ9 vibes off of this version of Whirl.

    Whirl is the wrong name, but I like how everyone looks and sounds so far.

    Also Wedge being a Bobcat (for those who know earthmovers) is great. Fits him well!

    The alt-modes of the new Rescue Bots are:

    Hot Shot - Off-road buggy
    Medix - Emergency response car (like what G1 Red Alert and Minerva transform into)
    Whirl - Helicopter
    Wedge - Skid-steer loader
    Hoist - Tow truck

    Neat.

    Also, Optimus has a tiny fucking head. :lolol  I still like the design, but I found myself laughing because of how disproportionate his head is compared to the rest of his body.

    Whirl looks like a fun fresh character, but Hot Shot has got me worried. Primes voice sound Okay from the one line, the same with Heatwave.

    I think it might be something to do with his very long but wide neck.

    I'm kinda surprised that Optimus is voiced by someone OTHER that Peter Cullen this time.

    Damn, his neck is thicker than his head! It looks like Heavy from TF2 wearing an Optimus Prime hat.

    Actually, from what we know RB: Academy is a continuation of Rescue Bots, while Cyberton is thought to be a New Continuity... but that thought could be wrong.

    My observation is only there are Similarity to the Two Continuities, or One Continuity.

    Wait.... WHAT? Optimus ISNT being voiced by Peter? Did Hasbro freeze over or something?

    Honestly im kinda sick of Peter, with Perter Cullen, Optimus has been stagnant as a character due to his older voice. (not saying that the only reason, but it could be a factor in how they write him) Im all for new voice actors esepecuially if they can put a new spin on the character.

    Just very suprised he isnt the one doing it.

    My guess is that Peter was too expensive for the smaller, backseat role?

    Edit: also LOL i thought he had a blue mouthplate!!!! its his CHIN!!!! when you cant tell what something is supposed to be thats bad design...

    Possible, and Whirl is the only one that doesn't have a nose.

    Also don't forget about Cyber Battalion
