    While it's too late to wish for it now in TF3 but..........Who would be interested in the voice actors each doing a cameo in the vehicle they are voicing?

    I thought there was a rumor about Peter Cullen doing a cameo? Was that debunked or is it still in the air?

    Holo-drivers. I wanted Cullen to be Prime's holo-driver since the beginning.

    I'd be all for that - the voice actors standing in as holo-avatars of the robots they play. Give the VAs lines to speak while appearing as holo-avatars, and you get an excellent way to allow for robot interaction and character development without worrying about the CGI going over budget.

    It was being rumored since ROTF.

    I'm all for holo-avatar cameos. The rumour about Cullen goes all the way back to the first movie (hence the Voyager Prime toy's driver). Seeing as this could be the last movie for a while, I think it would be fitting to see at least some of the VAs on-screen.

    It also allows for interaction in alt-mode sometihng if I remember correctly was dismissed as being silly by Bay. I may be worng here.

    I've always wanted communication in vechicle mode and holo-drivers/pilots are they way to do this without it being silly.

    If it happens I'll be all for it, if it doesn't it won't be a deal breaker for me.

    I read some interview and Cullen said he was on set at some airport hangar in long beach during TF3 filming so maybe finally he will get a cameo as primes holodriver. They did do it in the prequel comic alliance

    And you have proof of said interview? Because here, either its rumors that your starting, or there's proof.

    But either way I hope you speak the truth.

    actually i dont really like holodrivers, sure they look like humans, but they can't interact with their environment. a better solution would be "Pretender Drivers", similar o arcee, drones that have a human like altmode. maybe those drones are ┬┤sparkbonded to their transformer, thus have the same personality and feelings.not all transformers would need them, but maybe they can upgrade themselves with drones. and that drone could form a weapon to when in robot mode. so that makes three altmodes: Robot, Human and Weapon.

    I definitely would like to see Tom Kenny sitting is Skids, dressed up like a hardcore wigger, at least just to get the "racist" complaints to get some reduction.

    I recall seeing an interview with Cullen where he mentioned he was on set very briefly. It certainly didn't paint the picture that any other VA was there, but gave the subtle hint that we may just see a brief Cullen cameo in DOTM.

    Orci said he'd written in a holo-driver sequence somewhere in ROTF but Bay dropped the scene/idea.

    I wasn't going to search for the article just so others here believe me. Good to know I'm not the only one that remembers the article. I'm hoping Cullen gets the cameo finally. I don't see how he wouldn't since it's only a few seconds.
