    We got Cullen and Welker for Prime, and I'll be perfectly honest, I don't see them going further than that for voice nods in the show. Not like many people really give a damn outside of Cullen and Welker, so why bother? They might not even get Corey Burton for Shockwave. (Who will SO be in it eventually, come on.) Guess we'll have to see.

    Still though, Dan WAS in Jackie Chan Adventures, and judging by Prime's casting choices, I don't think Stephen J. Davis has changed his Rolodex in any way...

    ...Of course...

    Are you kidding? I'm not that naive.

    I think it all depends on how Bee is portrayed.

    In G1, Bee was one of the POV characters, so Dan's gentler voice suited him.

    In the movies Bee is supposed to be a bad-ass warrior. I don't really see Dan's voice working for that role.

    Bee was sort of a POV character in TF:A, but was such a loud-mouthed jerk that I really have a hard time imagining Dan voicing that character as well.

    But I will agree that Dan Gilvezan IS Bumblebee. All others are just pretenders to the throne.

    As noted on the front page he is also Goldbug, Hot Spot, and Snapdragon. But let's not forget about Scamper and Outback either.

    I met Dan Gilvezan once. Bloody nice bloke.

    Shame he's no longer involved in the Transformers franchise, although not that surprising considering the direction the movies have taken with Bumblebee.

    Dan will always be Bumblebee to me as he will always be Spiderman his voice should always stick with Bumblebee as Cullens does with Prime

    I for one would like to see the remaining G1 voice actors continue to be part of the franchise outside of going to cons, even if it isn't always in the same capacity or voicing the same characters as they were. It seems unfair that some of them are kind of left out, like Mr. Gilvezan and Michael Bell.

    Really don't see how this is 'news'. Is there going to be a front page article for every currently living G1 VA who isn't approached for involvement in future TF projects? Or just those VAs who did major characters?

    What he said. ^^

    Not just Bumblebee, but he also voiced my favorite version of the web-head. Spiderman and his Amazing Friends (still my favorite cartoon of all time). Welker voiced Iceman in that show..and damn was he hilarious.

    I'm not sure how anyone 'deserves' to do a specific role/job? Dan did a great Bumblebee in 1984. That voice doesn't correlate well to the current incarnation of Bumblebee. There's nothing to say he may not be approached in the future. And why not give other voice actors the chance to do the roles?

    As for Latta and Welker being 'real' Megs and Starscream - please. Kaye has done Megatron for far longer, and did it far more sinisterly. And both Michael Dobson and Tom Kenny did great jobs as their respective Starscreams.

    Don't forget Charlie Adler as Starscream (he voiced Silverbolt - and others - in the cartoon).

    Pity, but oh well. Hasbro are in a 'pick and choose' mode these days, dropping some old stuff and taking up new things. Bummer that traditional Bumblebee looks to be getting replaced by badass BayBlebee style character. I guess TF doesn't already have plenty of kickass warrior sporty cars while at the same time also being overloaded with too many little wannabe underdog fellas.
    I've not been approached for any recent TF games or movie work either. Can I have a news thread about me too? :p

    Chris lattas starscream was epic and un forgetful and was great doin cobra commander visionarys. Frank welker made megatron and was more serious and passionate then dobson and kenny. Chris lattas starscream can never be out done or frank welker. Dobson and were real good but chris and frank were GREAT! And those are the facts. Dan bless his heart is still the best and real BUMBLEBEE for me!

    Listen, you seem like a well-meaning guy, but you must understand that what he said was an opinion. Same with what you said. He may not like the G1 performances as much, and you might worship them.

    HOWEVER, everyone is allowed to think what they want. Don't go hatin' on Starscream NZ because he has a different opinion.

    im not hating get the facts right. I wrote what i felt if he doesnt agree thats cool. But he the one hating and maybe you too but going back and rewriting or changing my post and uncalled for grow this aint middle school. The fact that chris frank and dan did there characters best and will never be out done is my belief and most would agree so again im stating the facts.
