    They sound like this, when I’m reading the comic:

    Rubble: Joel Heyman (Caboose, Red Vs Blue)
    Bumblebee: Jeremy Levy (Cyberverse Reprisal)
    Windblade: Sophia Isabella (Cyberverse Reprisal)
    Orion Pax: Peter Cullen (G1 Reprisal)
    Megatron: Jason Marnocha (Power Of The Prime Trilogy Reprisal)
    Ironhide: Peter Cullen (G1 Reprisal)

    They might change overtime though.

    Nope, sorry, some of Orion's speech I found myself unable to read in Cullen's voice. It didn't fit.

    Maybe I'm willing to forgive that because it's Orion and not yet Optimus. Time will tell.

    This is just first issue stuff for now but I'm curious to see how it'll pan out

    Bumblebee: Yuri Lowenthal

    Rubble: Justin Briner

    Windblade: Sophia Isabella

    Ironhide: Travis Willingham

    Megatron: Clancy Brown

    I still haven't pinned down a voice for Orion Pax yet. I agree that it feels too early to default to Cullen or someone similar. I've tried reading him as Keith David and David Kaye but Keith still feels too old and wisened while Kaye sounds too young and eager.

    Yo, how did I not think of that? Honestly either Briner's Deku voice or Aguilar's Koichi voice fit Rubble so well! It might also be because I imagine him to be very timid and naive like them too, but still, can't believe I didn't think of that.

    Now that I think it over maybe Gary Chalk as Orion Pax could work.

    I’m reading most of the cast in their Cyberverse voices, with the ones who don’t have them having VA’s from the same area. Ironhide is David Willis and Rubble is Michael Liscio.

    I misread that as "Justin Bieber" but ok.

    Still can't pinpoint a voice for Primd though.

    Issue 2:
    Wheeljack: John DiMaggio
    Prowl: Crispin Freeman
    Chromia: Not sure yet but going with Sumalee Montano until I think of something better

    And reading Pax as Gary Chalk still isnt working. I may just default back to Cullen and Welker for now

    You both beat me to it. I was never too sure what the previous IDW Optimus talked like (sort of a Neil Kaplan RiD voice maybe) but I think Chalk or Kaye work much better for this Prime than Cullen, or anyone doing a Cullen impression. Optimus is far enough along in his career to have seen some shit and gotten some gravitas, but the G1 Cullen voice doesn't fit for his new slightly more 'dignified senator' portrayal, and the current Cullen voice is too old and battle-worn.

    Kaye's voice was a little too young sounding but he's a lot more expressive than Chalk, who talked like a cartoon hero but didn't have much layer to it, at least through the Unicron Trilogy. Either of them are still my Optimus choice for now though.

    I usually tend to read pre-war Optimus/Orion as Kaye while Cullen for Optimus who has been a war commander and leader for extended time.

    Like the Energon VAs, with copious amounts of "UH" and "HUH" to punctuate the flatness.

    I may take this reboot opportunity to try out having Tim Curry as my head-voice for Megatron. That "Professional Pirate" spoof from many years ago really stuck with me.
