    An important element in the movie are the voices that bring these Transformers to life. We know of Peter Cullen as Prime. I wonder who the voices will be in this one this time? Hopefully, the more prolific voices will be there.

    Aside from the returning cast, I think Samuel L. Jackson needs to voice someone, if not all of them.

    "I've had it with these motherfuckin' Autobots on this motherfuckin' planet!"

    In all seriousness, I'm pretty confident they'll get the "right" actor for the parts. I'd rather they find a voice that fits the character, than get an fan-favorite actor and try to "square-peg, round-hole" him into the character.

    Well all the voices in the first film will return. Although since screamer is suppose to be geting alot more lines i wouldnt be suprised if Bay shopped around a bit to find a better voice acter. Mind you i didnt mind starscreams voice. Leanord Nemoy and Wrekler are in the running for a couple spots. I'd love to see leanord do a voice similiar to galvatron, that would be awesome. Skids and mudflap will likely sound childish, kind of pitchy voices... who knows.

    Agreed, the lines would be cool, but I think it's more important that the personalities are correct, rather than the voices.

    Sideswipe for example, he's a very unique character, if he isn't a cocky, badass, it won't be the same.

    Definetly, it will depend how the voice acter characterizes the bot for sure. All i wana hear is Ironhide shout out "Time to bust some decepti-chops" right before he rips the spark out a cons chest.

    Soundwave: Frank Welker (G1 Soundwave) -Fully agree
    Fallen: Leonard Nimoy (G1 Galvatron, TFTM) -Fully agree
    Sideswipe: Steve Downes (SPARTAN John-117, Master Chief) -Never thought of him, he would make a great choice.
    Skids: Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy) -Not for Skids, but I think he should be a voice.
    Mudflap: Larry the Cable Guy (Redneck) -Naah... but I can't think of someone else.
    Demolishor: Gregg Berger (G1 Grimlock) -agree
    Jolt: Mark Harmon (Jolt's true identity) -agree
    Sideways: Tom Kenny (TFA Starscream) I would prefer Keith David.
    Arcee/Chromia/???: Susan Blu (G1 Arcee, Animated Arcee) Fully Agree
    Scalpel: Eddie Deezen (Mandark) -YES

    I'm hoping for Sue Blu to do the voice of Arcee, but not for her sisters. Unless they have a triplet thing going on (speaking in unison). Maybe it could be her doing different voices for each sister? I'd love for Chromia to have a "western" accent.

    Skids and Mudlap, aka the Redneck twins, need to have redneck voices. I'm going with Larry the Cable Guy.

    I'm just hoping for a bit of variety in the voices. The Autobots weren't too bad, but all the 'cons were gruff and shouty (because they are evil, presumably and thats what evil folk sound like). They were all pretty interchangeable as a result, Frenzy aside. I'd like some processing too, like in the'80s cartoon - those metallic edges and stuff like Soundwave's awesome voice are what I've missed from the modren cartoons (and no, that weird sounds-like-they're-talking-in-an-echoy-metal-room-thing doesn't count!).

    Mudflap: "Hey Skids, git 'er dun!"
    Skids: "Giggity-giggity."

    That's all I could think of when I saw those two lined up with the "wish list" names of Larry the Cable Guy and Seth McFarlane, respectively.

    I doubt if most will come true, but that doesn't stop it from being a good wish list. Nicely done. Now all this movie needs is more cow bell.

    It just better have known voice actors b/c in the last movie (which Cullen and Weaving are very known) was like the voice actors didn't matter.

    Well, Weaving was processed into almost total unrecognizability, as was Charlie Adler as Starscream. Aside from that, the 'cons had no dialogue aside from Barricade getting like, 2 sentences then lots of incoherant screaming or chattering.

    So really, any dialogue would be an improvement.

    Tara Strong should be Wheelie, using one of her "boy" voices.
