    I am the voice of Cyclonus, Ultra Magnus, and the Narrator. Words can't properly express the amount of love and work the producers of this piece have poured into it. I am honored to be a part of it and hope people enjoy it. Oh, you didn't know Cyclonus was a Khajiit and Ultra Magnus is actually Worf? Well, now you know.

    Okay this is on my short list.

    Also as someone with expensive audio recording equipment and minor acting ability I'm tempted to offer my services. (My YouTube channel uses near professional level equipment as heard in my signature.)

    Yeah, I'd be interested in auditioning for this. Always looking for projects to boost my VO audio reel, or, y'know, actually have a VO audio reel.

    For anyone looking to lend their voices to the project, we have the roles of Overlord, Fort Max, the DJD, and the Decepticon Scavengers in the coming issues of 4-8. To audition for the character, record a sample of their dialogue in your take in .wav or .mp3 and send the Dropbox links to me here! We look forward to hearing your creative vocals!

    Whoa whoa WHOA. When did auditions for THIS happen??? Goshdarnit, I would have auditioned for Rewind, Chromedome, Whirl, Drift.... aw, heck, half the cast. I'll DEFINITELY be sending in something for Overlord, Tarn, and Fort Max, at least. I'm really sad I missed out on this.

    There's only one voice I can do that I like... and he doesn't even appear in MTMTE.

    Darn it, Needlenose!

    This worked great on my nook, paired with the issues on comixology. Can't wait to hear more! I really enjoyed the voices of Swerve, Cyclonus, and Rodimus.

    Would it be possible to make these available to download as a podcast?

    Just listen to the first issue while reading along on Comixology. I really wasn't certain what to expect but I'm glad to say, for fan work, this was good. Some voices sounded a bit put on and not all the acting was as good as it could've been but all in all, this was good.

    A big problem though, is when having to imagine the voices when reading, you come up with your own perfect voices for each character so if they don't end up being used in something like this, it can be annoying to you.

    We appreciate everyone's feedback! Yes, Bennydeckersac, we're working to get all of our episodes up on TFRadio.net's site and they will be available on iTunes as well!

    We continue to improve, Soundwaverulls, and hope you find episodes 2 and 3 a delightful evolution!

    I think episode 2 was definitely an improvement on episode 1. I particularly enjoy Swerve's voice, and the actor does a pretty good job of hitting the right tone in my opinion. Whirl and Cyclonus are also fun with their accents.

    One pet peeve though is that the voice of Highbrow is fine, but the delivery feels off. I feel like he should be a bit more excited about his work like an excitable mad scientist (which he is) rather than his slightly detached manner as currently presented. Likewise I feel like Rodimus needs a bit more bluster and overconfidence especially when doing speeches.

    You may also want to include longer pauses between dialogue when the comic has panels which are dialogue free. It is kind of jarring to be following along on Comixology guided view and then jumping from one bit of dialogue in one panel and then instantly jumping to dialogue located 2 or 3 panels later.

    I'll probably listen to episode 3 later tonight, and I look forward to seeing the project evolve as the actors get more comfortable with their roles.

    Thanks for the feedback, The Ionicon! Yes, we are definitely taking these things into accoutn! And yes, Brainstorm will be jazzed up sufficiently in his next outing. :p
