    as hasbro announce plans for a cybertron prequel some of us are thinking about what and who we will see in it but there are is a problem of the autobot leader. as said in dark of the moon sentinel prime was the leader during the war but there is the problem that we can't actually see sentinel in film due to Leonard Nimoys tragic death and i don't think they would recast him as Nimoy is irreplaceable so what do you think they will do.


    R.I.P Leonard Nimoy

    As irreplecable as his voice myght be they kinda need to recast him or show the end of the war but I don't bet on that.

    Set the film after the Ark was lost, I guess.

    I would just set it in the early days of the war and recast him...the GA would probably just chalk up the difference in voice to age and whatever 'battle damage' he took over the years (at least narratively speaking - I'm sure most audience members would know the original voice actor is dead, considering what an icon Nimoy was).

    I mean, it's a prequel...you kinda have to EXPECT some characters, especially ones played by actors now deceased, to be recast (depending on whether or not those characters are actually IN the prequel, of course).

    Depending on when it was set, they could (sadly) recast Sentinel. Maybe get Zachary Quinto to play a younger Sentinel? Or just set it after the loss of the Ark. But as sad as it is that Leonard's gone, recasting a character due to their age sits just fine with me. Leonard had this old, gravelly voice that rumbled like he was older than the Earth itself; not really fitting if Sentinel appears as a younger "man".

    They'll recast if that's the case. A younger Sentinel Prime would be appropriate without a raspy voice that Leonard perfectly delivered.

    You could have a younger Sentinel.

    I think Jim Cummings could do a solid Leonard Nimoy impression.
