    I'm 99% certain it is Lance Henrikson (Aliens, Millennium, TFA). He has a great voice, too!

    Yes, YEs, YES *Does backflips*...Great news indeed. If the CG animation is on par with the voice talent, this should, in the words of Linkin Park's New Divide tune "wash this memory clean" of the God-awful Armada, Energon, Cybertron dubbing and storyline disasters. Keep the voice talent good news coming. If Wheeljack's in, I want a sound-alike (aka Dr. Smoov).

    Please no.

    He can't do Megatron anymore. Now if they got him as Soundwave or someone else, hell's yeah.

    Hopefully Franky will get to do at least one voice too (if not Megatron or Soundwave).

    and suddenly all the fangirls fainted:D  while the fanboys wet their pants:p 

    Now if we could only have Welker, Burton, Kenny:) p you know) and Bell etc.back... we'd have the G1 crew!:lol 

    I'm more excited for this now than Bay's 'formers. *looks at sig* Man, what a waste of a sig. I should have realised that any Bot would be better off not being in Bayverse and have his lines scrapped in favor of stupid slapstick/bad sex jokes:rolleyes2 


    *gets up from the floor*

    Aww. I don't think I have DSCkids/Hub:(

    Holy crap! This is awesome! Him doing tv shows again :)  Even if it sucked, I'll still watch it to hear his voice. Peter Cullen is such a team player

    Where does it say Peter Cullen is playing Prime? The article says the show will feature Cullen, who voiced Prime in G1 and the movies. It's a pretty good assumption, but there's no confirmation Cullen will actually play Prime. I'd hate to see all these nerdgasms dashed if Cullen ends up being "Narrator" or something.

    Also, no to Frank Welker as Megatron. He simply can't do it anymore. And the sad truth that no one wants to admit is neither can Cullen really. All of his dialogue in the Bay movies sounds like the death scene in TFTM. Peter Cullen is still a living legend whose contribution to TFs can not be denied. His original Prime voice is still the definitive Prime voice, but he just can't replicate it anymore. The current replacement simply pales in comparison.

    I think you might be confusing Bay's directing with Cullen's ability.

    I saw Cullen at last year's Botcon, where the Q&A was basically a series of "Mr. Cullen, could you improvise a skit where Ironhide and Murky Dismal argue over the last doughnut?"

    He's aged, but his voice still has tremendous range to it.

    I hope Cullen can do an amazing job with a well written script this time.

    When I told my bro about this, he's was like :jawdropper:

    Great news. Here's to hoping they bring Welker back as Megatron and/or Soundwave.
