    Ian James Corlett, that's awesome!
    He did a great Cheetor voice!

    Ian was the original English voice in Dragon Ball Z for Goku and Master Roshi in the first 37 dubbed episodes (Beginning of the Saiyan Arc till early in the Namek Arc) along with The Tree of Might movie as part of the Ocean/Haim Saban dub out of Vancouver, Canada.

    Love that poster. Was Ultra Magnus originally supposed to be the hero in the 1986 movie? He seemed like the main character but then was quickly wiped out. Was he not radical enough?

    That's the original soundtrack cover (sort of a stripped down version of the original movie poster from North America). That poster for the movie seem to put Magnus front and centre - I suppose to not spoil the twist of Rodimus Prime's ascension - while promoting the all-new characters. The UK poster, by comparison, featured Megatron and Optimus more prominently. The eventual japanese release of the film used a (really nice) picture featuring Rodimus front and centre, and the french poster also featured the new characters - but these came a few years after the movie was released.

    Friedman's original draft (or at least the draft fans got their hands on a year or few ago) featured Ultra Magnus in charge of the Autobots following the death of Optimus, as in the final film, but he also dies in that draft, and Hot Rod take the lead at the end (though without becoming Rodimus) - so it seems unlikely he was supposed to be much more than we see him as in the final film - maybe there was discussion about expanding/shrinking his part during development but I sort of doubt it. Maybe he WASN'T radical enough, like you say, and needed a flashier Autobot symbol on his chest.

    Here's Ron Friedman (briefly) on the matter at a previous TFcon:

    Apparently, The Matrix is a "First Touch Gets It" kind of inheritance...

    The one you hear in your head when you read, "IT IS THE YEAR, TWO THOUSAND AND FIVE!!!"

    That's a seriously good get. I'd love to get him to record my phone message!

    This is great newsI would love to meet VIctor Carroli!

    If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I'd like to see what he says about my voice match imitation of his work in Transformers. Its fun to try to replicate, but nothing can beat the original.
