Ernie Hudson! Adam Baldwin?!?! Hmm...Neato.
Ratchet2007
3 human teenagers ?

It's Armada all over again
Karhukjnsi
Adam Baldwin (Animal Mother from Full Metal Jacket) is going to be Breakdown (Brakdown, lol). I think I have an early guess as to who one of my favorite characters are going to be.

Hopefully the humans take a back seat to the bots, who get the spotlight. Transformers are characters too y'know. Too much human focus will make me lose interest. The only reason I could see humans as being helpful is having them get into small areas where the big bots can't reach and do things that the big bots may have trouble with, like convince other humans that the Autobots are not an alien threat but the Decepticons are.
Foster
Ernie Hudson, hell yeah:

Prime, when someone asks you if you're a god, you say "YES"!
Megatron31
ill be interested to hear starscream

i like the voice actor listed as him
but i dont see him being starscream
Ultrawave
I hope Welker is using a different voice for Megatron.
MenasorMaster
Breakdown ?? Hell yeah !!! I hope we see pics of all characters soon. wonder what knockout will be.
Thundercrackah
No Bumblebee voice actor listed.

Hopefully he is mute with radio speak.

Yeah, yeah I know other people don't want that but I do.
Oracle_Aesir
I've only heard of like 5 of those actors, so i cant really make an opinion
D-Unit
You know who would be good as Ratchet? Gary Chalk. That voice worked really well for Man-At-Arms in the 2002 He-Man series, and that's kind of the character Ratchet's become lately. This has nothing to do with TF Prime I just realized, so y'know, just sayin'...
Autovolt 127
Who's voicing cliffjumper, soundwave and General Fowler?


It's a cool line up I guess but out side of Cullen, Welker, Richardson, Keaton, Blum and Norris I really don't know the line up at all.


Also wasn't Gina Torres and James Remar confirmed as well?
Feralstorm
I'm guessing Bulkhead is not going to be a "cute" character this time around.
Embryoyo
Adam Baldwin?! awesome
Looking forward to hear Steve Blum as Starscream, as he played in one of my fav animes
Tigertrack
When does this series start?
Black Oracle
I'm liking some of the VA names there: Steve Blum (Wolverine) and Jeffrey Combs (The Question from JLU), for example. And it'd be rather funny if Jack turns out something like Peter Parker from the Spectacular Spiderman series given Josh Keaton is his VA!

Looks like they're starting off like Animated did with 26 eps.
Challenger
Bumblebee doesn't have a voice actor? I hope that doesn't mean he's going to be mute and using radio-speak again. Since Cliffjumper and Soundwave don't have voice actors listed yet either, I'm just going to hope that Bee's VA hasn't been announced yet.
MegaPrime33
Hudson AND Baldwin??

WIN.
Omnius
You had me at 'Ernie Hudson'!
jadtdt
Might "Sumalee Montanp" actually be "Sumalee Montano"? I ask because Sumalee Montano is a real person, who exists, while Sumalee Montanp seemingly does not.
General Magnus
I hope this General dude turns out in a "Fanzone" kinda of way. He was my favorite animated human.
HIM666fan
this is half the character list right..... a poor list im sry.

I also think "Agent Flower" is a typo and might be the "General Fowler" Michael Bell auditioned for.

I missed it if it was already announced.... is Comcast carrying The Hub?

Could be right. I was thinking 'Agent Flower' sounded rather comical.
VaderPrime1
Nice!!! Now all I need is a release date... can ya help us out there HUB?

Heh, the show has average writers, most of whom seem to be refugees from a recent Batman show. And I see a Beast Machines writer in there, so good-bye Cybertron!

That, and it's already been done as Captain Flowers in Red vs. Blue.

Brakdown is, of course, perfectly fine as it is.

There's a video from Botcon out there that showcases him recording lines for Megatron.\

Here we go, if you watch the last video it has both him and Cullen in the recording studio.
shroobmaster
Brian Tyler? As in, The Expendables Brian Tyler right?

Oh god I hope this show gets a soundtrack release.

aw if that's the way it's going to be, I hope in one episode Megatron lands on his bearings and that voice does indeed go "up there."

In the caption pic above it lookslike Ratchet is wearing BFGoodrich AT/KO tires... very accuratly rendered too.
Brooticus
Adam Baldwin?? Awsome! Heres Hoping for an evil Jayne Cobb!

I'm hoping the whole human drama angle will refer not to "how three normal high school kids cope with having not so normal friends", but instead the potential human cost of the war between two factions of giant robots duking it out on earth.

In a lot of series of transformers (and even the movies), buildings have been destroyed, cars crushed and towns have been levelled with nary a passing mention of the human cost.

Now, i'm not suggesting for a second that the focus of a show should be about the aftermath of a fight, or how someone lost their family etc. Its a kids show, after all - but it is possible to be mature without being dark and brooding.

The fact that people live in buildings, towns and cities should be used to the shows advantage in order to add tension, suspense and peril to proceedings. When a Con shows up, the audience should be goin "ooooooh, shit".

When theres a lot at stake, it always makes a fight that much more sweet. Think of any of your favorite fights in film/tv, and i'm willing to bet there'll be something/someone pretty important at the center of it.

Tell them about the Twinkie.


Also, weren't there seven Autobots in the main cast? Or was it just six?
Akumaxv
Wow. Markie Post from Night Court?

Adam Baldwin?

And Ernie Hudson...!!!

"Optimus, I've seen Sh*t that'll turn you white!!"

This show looks to be coming together nicely.
B'Bantor
@ Markie Post. I thought she was hot when I was like 12. Jeez, I guess I'm an old timer.
caitlindevi
Wait...Bumblebee isn't listed as a main character? What freaky alternative universe have I stumbled into?

What ever will china do will all the excess yellow plastic it bought in anticipation of the bazillion repaints of 'Bee from Prime

And Erinie Hudson AWESOME, if there is no ghostbusters refernce, even a tiny on, I will burn the series

Adam Baldwin!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
You should watch "Chuck" on NBC. If you don't you are a bad person.
Fort Max
Quite a lot of good info, happy to see relatively unknown names like Knockout and Breakdown being put in the limelight. I hope this will turn out like Lugnut and Bulkhead in animated, i.e. blank slate new characters.

No info for Bumblebee, Cliffjumper or Soundwave which is odd, perhaps they join later on. Happy to see Josh Keaton as the main teenager, there's a good chance the character will be watchable with him providing the voice.

Ernie Hudson, wow, hell of a choice and I always love a bit of KMR and Blum.
