    I really like the idea of the hologram drivers for the bots. Especially when Frenzy calls the Decepticons and you see Starscream loading up his "pilot"

    I think it'd be really cool for fans if in the sequel they have Peter Cullen in for Optimus Prime's hologram driver.

    Yup, I would like Cullen to cameo as Optimus' hologram. Mind, holograms appeared in the second part of 'More Than Meets The Eye', and are also an IDW staple.

    I think the holograms should get out of the cars during battle and start kicking ass too.

    I wrote an article on the Decepticon holographic avatar, known in the script as the Mustache Man, here, on the TF Wiki.

    Beware, minor spoilelrs if you've not seen the movie.

    The fascimiles are fake humans grown by the Decpticons for infilltration into the government. Typicaly they kill the original. The holograms are holograms. But they are used very well in the IDW stories and I'm looking forward to seeing the story continue, it's been pretty good so far.

    I always wondered how the Transformers were going to avoid suspcision in Vehicle Mode, given that they had no drivers, and ha, the movie provides a man for the Decepticons now known as "The Mustache Man". Brilliant move.

    As long as Cullen is Prime's in the sequel, then HELL YES.

    And Ironhide's is Chuck Norris.

    Cullen as Prime Holo = BEST.IDEA.EVER.

    And then maybe if they got Jazz back we could have Chris Rock... and if we get Magnus Samuel L Jackson!

    kind of hard if all they are is holographic images wrapped around part of the transformer's interior.however,it might be cool if they use holographic shells to create new pretender technology.might be easier than using idw's facsimilies in the movie sequel.

    Cullen for Prime-driver!

    Mr. Cullen seemed pretty interested when the folks at AboutHeroes recently read a fan question asking him if he'd accept the cameo role, during a podcast interview!
