    The leader of the Autobots before Optimus, but it's been revealed that Optimus will succeed him as Autobot Supreme Commander at some point in the game I think.

    Doug Parker is good news, the work he's done on transformers has been good so far.

    Bear in mind that for possession they probably made him scream his lines more so they create a bigger contrast against Terrorsaur.

    (if he does a performance either way or inbetween it'll be perfect.)

    Does anyone else find it funny that they're even using Zeta Prime? His only mention ever was in the Spotlight Blurr which just confused everyone since everything in existance before that said the matrix went from Sentinel to Optimus. Not always directly, but still there has never been mention of an interim before. Makes me think the surprise writer's going to be Shane McCarthy who's writing Zeta into the game to give credibility to Spotlight Blurr. :) 

    I'm still looking forward to the game, don't get me wrong, I'm simply amused.

    there's only so few lines Nimoy could say as an Autobot. Though I'd make me squeal if he said one line from the tf movie as an autobot.

    It's probably Furman, since he wrote The War Within, which this is conceptually based upon, and he's about the most well-known TF writer.

    Yeah, he does a lot of voice work for Anime shows that get english dubs which he does well. However, from the tiny snipit i heard from the audio i'm not sure it works well with bumblebee, still ... i'll wait until i hear more before i make my mind up about how good i think it is. :)

    Personally, I prefer SpongeScream. He does the "sceaming" very well, but also does SS's quieter, more scheming moments brilliantly too. Doug Parkers turn in beast wars was okay, but i found it to be a little too OTT. If he tones it down a little for WFC, then all is good in the hood.

    Nimoy FTW! However, when i first heard the name 'Zeta', I automatically assumed it would be a female character, proably because of Catherine Zeta Jones...
