Awesome stuff! I hope someone upload's it to YouTube, I'd be interesting in watch it. Might kill some time until Transformers: Prime season two premiers in January.
Autovolt 127
Awesome!

Steven Blum, John DiMaggio, Maurice LaMarche and even Levar Burton.

Nice cast so far. So any guesses whose voicing who?
ORIO
Excite!
UltraAlanMagnus
YES! Bender, and Calculon coming in Rescuebots. Also I think Diedrich Bader Is Optimus Prime.
Oberoniss
Well.. that's interesting, I suppose. Can't really say I'm excited for a little kids' show, but I'll probably watch it when I get the time.

Also details on the voice cast. Steve Blum! John DiMaggio! LeVar Burton!

I do wonder if some of them might jump across to work on Prime as Blum's doing both shows? Also it's interesting that the Rescue Bots are specifically the four new guys - maybe Optimus and Bumblebee won't be the main focus? I find it hard to believe but you never know.
Well, at least we now know where Starscream went. I'll try and look out for it on Youtube. I know it's probably for kids but I'm kinda interested.

If this is in the same continuity as Prime, could make things interesting...

GOOD GOD. THAT VOICE CAST.

This is amazing.
Quickdrawn94
John DiMaggio.... Bite my giant metal ass.
ediblesteak
Bender,

on a kids show?!

Now I have to see this.
Shockwave9227
I might actually catch it even though I can't expect much from something directed more towards toddlers to 7 year olds.
Wheeljack_Prime
Please let this be indication that Burton, DiMaggion, and LaMarche are in TFP as well... a LeVar Burton Jazz, how cool would that be?

I just might have to tune into this

Dont you Remember? Bender is being considered to voice Jazz according to JinxIsHot on Wikipedia.

Maurice had never voiced a Transformer since Six Gun Sam.
moreprimeland
Thought it would be too kiddie/youthful to watch, but with that voice cast, I will be giving this series a serious look!
Sideswipe1954
Any word if Peter Cullen is doing Prime?

Dude, you're sourcing wikipedia. Completely disregarded.

does this mean that Peter Cullen isn't voicing Optimus?
TFW10
Good news.
StarryAqua
Can't really say I'm really interested in this childrens show as I am with Prime, but I might check it out. I'm going to assume Rescue Bots won't air immediately before or after Transformers: Prime and airs early in the morning because the age difference in that blink of a second would be rediculous.
Draqua
To our comrades with The Hub: can we count on you guys to record this for us? At least we should check out even if it is for kids. If so, thank you.

If it's not Peter Cullen, then whoever doing the voice of Optimus Prime on the Trailer shown at the Hasbro's Investor Day is doing a pretty awesome job.

John DiMaggio.

I will be there DAY ONE.
WTDylio
Steve Blum and John DiMaggio .....Definitely watching now!
TylerMirage
Cool stuff. Can't wait to see who they're playing. I'll definitely be tuning in.
Optimatron
Alllright....If we're getting a rescue robots transformers cartoon...


can we get a updated Classics show too please? Lol I want a show for my tastes toooooo lol. A G1 redux would be awesome to me, as I've never lost interest in the original aesthetic.
UltraAlanMagnus
If only they Get John Kass, Keith Szarabajka, and even Brian Cummings, Im all Set.

Oh please.
StarryAqua
I seriously wonder if this show will start its own continuity or be forcibly added into another.
TFW10
^^That would be interesting if this show would feed into Prime.^^
Darthrai
I have a feeling that they're going for a boys' version of MLP:FiM.
Backscatter
I for one hope Rescue Bots have their own continuity. Why tie it to Prime? It's a younger kids show. With this voice cast, I'm really looking forward to the show. I'll be watching that day this December.

Optimus Prime only doing cameos in Rescue Bots? Lame.
Tracer
I'm bummed that I don't have the HUB. I think the kids would love this.
Infosaur
Man I hope DiMaggio is voicing the Fire truck (Inferno? Hotspot?)

I wonder who Lacy Chabert is voicing?

The fire truck is called Heatwave.
NCStarscream
I'm going to allow myself to hold out hope that Starscream will make an appearance in this show because of Blum's involvement even though I know that doesn't mean anything of the sort. I just want a Rescue Bot figure of him.
Vla
The first TF show for little kids? Nice idea, because it would be useful for effectively imprinting TF as early childhood memories for new generations. And I'm glad that it have more-less classic stylistic (but, sadly, superdeformed, like that Robot Heroes book and toys).
But here appears the question: it means Hasbro still planning to continue to make shows (and toys) with classic look, or Hasbro decided that classic style is retarded and from now it's useful for toddlers shows only?

I don't interested in Rescue Bots much, if it's scenario is really on the level of Gobots and most childish episodes of RiD. But have a hope that the plot will appear surprisingly more universal. It would be good if creators will start from simple plot and eventually develop it to more complicated levels in further episodes.
Infosaur
Think of the 1st few eps of animated, The Autobots will be cheerfully helping humans deal with things humans can't. Decepticons might not even be mentioned. (although maybe they'll secretly be behind some things?)

We've all become jaded transfans if we can't apreciate the simple joy of driving a firetruck that turns into an awsome fire-fighting robot.
Sprocket
If it's not entertaining, it's not entertaining.

It could end up as mediocre as Go-Go-Go-Bots, which is fine, it's for kids. Doesn't mean I have to watch it.
Sol Fury
We've received word from The Hub that John DiMaggio was included in error. No Transformer voiced by Bender for you!

Full voice cast now revealed:

Optimus Prime has been confirmed as a cameo role only!
Starscreamer95
How the hell does someone just 'mistakenly' throw in a name as big as DiMaggio? There goes my hype.

*See’s Steve Blum*

And back it comes.
RedAlert Rescue
So is it going to be one robot per ep - or is someone like Boulder going to be the main character, will Bumblebee talk or beep ?
If Optimus is barely in it then who will feature and how will they balance the show pairs of robots on a mission or all the Humans and one robot ?

I also wonder if the voice cast list will reveal if there's more than 6 Autobots in the show.
soundwaverulls
How could Peter Cullen play a role in Rescue Bots? He takes Optimus Prime far too seriously for a little kids show.
