    Hey fellas, do we have a list of things from Season 2 that have been confirmed by the writers in various venues?

    Like, we heard that there would be a certain number of new characters.

    Did they confirm that Bumblbee would talk, for example?

    Two things that I recall from last year conventicons specifically is that "Dinobots are part of long term plans" and that while season 1 was written to be episodic and without problem if you missed on episode Season 2 will have more of a season story and if you miss episodes you will have to do some catching up.

    Everything else was just minor stuff everybody figured would happen like Mech and Wheeljack returning, more characters, space adventures etc. But I don't think they confirmed Bee would get his voice back, they said it COULD happen but they don't want to spoil anything.

    That's some good stuff. I like the Beast Wars Novela approach, and Space travel.

    Here's a list from the TV.com forums for Transformers Prime. Accuracy is questionable.

    Tony Todd (who voiced the Fallen in "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen") will voice the Decepticon Dreadwing who has a really compelling character arc.

    Nathan Fillion will voice an unnamed guest Autobot or Decepticon.

    The Dinobots will appear in the series.

    Miko will have strong character development and learn from her mistakes.

    Soundwave will eventually speak.

    Scraplets will return.

    Andy Pessoa (voice of Raf) is hitting puberty (kinda makes ya wonder how Raf'll sound like in season 2, huh?).

    Wheeljack will return.

    Bumblebee's muteness will be explained in a two-parter that explores how Bumblebee lost his voice, and why his voice hasn't been fixed as well.

    New weapons and abilities, even some upgrades.

    More Earth-Cybertron relationships (planet-wise).

    Orion Pax will join the Decepticons (getting the insignia as well) before hopefully getting his memory back, returning as Optimus Prime.

    Autobots will leave Earth (most likely for a brief period of time).

    We'll see a lotta new Autobots and Decepticons.

    Starscream will return in an arc that gives one of the supervising producer, Duane Capizzi, the chills.

    And the body count (character deaths) has been upgraded in season 2.

    I hope all of this is true.

    This is a frequent mistake. Fillion on Prime hasn't been confirmed. He's just someone the staff would like to voice a character on the show.

    Where did you read that? I only remember one time Miko's role in season 2 was mentioned in the interview with writer's assistant Mairghread Scott:

    We also know that this season Starscream will get "beaten really badly" and that he's in for a world of "unprecedented pain" and we will see "lots of punishment for Starscream." :<

    Also in the beginning THIS interview they've mentioned the seeker clones from Animated, but Steve's and Jeff's reactions are up for interpretation (Screamer's contribution to the Chimera Project? Sunstorm?)

    The Quintessons have been confirmed, and I for one am totally looking forward to seeing how Prime handles them.

    Top line of my post says my source. It's a thread on the Prime forums over on tv.com.

    Transformers Prime: Season Two General News and Discussion - TV.com

    Yeah, I saw on IMDB that Kevin Conroy was supposed to be voicing Sentinel Prime or someone this season. It has since disappeared.

    Huh, by the sound of things season 2 seems quite promising. Let's see if it follows through.

    Long-term as in "not until season three," sorry. =P

    And didn't the Quintesson thing just turn out to be a joke, because some site misinterpreted it? (same thing happened with the Nathan Fillion discussion)

    So we have these to look forward to:

    Wheeljack's return
    Quintessons
    Combiners
    Dinobots
    Soundwave's voice
    Bumblebee's voice
    Character Development for Miko
    David Kaye's character
    Whoever the Autobot showing up in "Loose Cannons" is
    Other characters

    They said there would "definitely be combiners" somewhere, can't remember where though. Also that Starscream had a character arc that literally gave the writers chills.

    I'm man enough to admit, the thought of Prime style combiner figs(hopefully), gives me goosebumps.
