Luke Skywalker and Hellboy Join Transformers: Prime Wars Trilogy (Updated)

With the just concluded run of Transformers: Titans Wars, it is already time to turn a little bit of attention to the concluding chapter of the Prime Wars Trilogy. Today Machinima and Hasbro have announced that Mark Hamill (the best Joker voice, Star Wars) and Ron Perlman (Hellboy, many other things) have joined the voice cast of Transformers: Power of the Primes. Hamill will voice Megatronus while Perlman will voice Optimus Primal (the character was fan voted to be the next Prime...). Other new voice actors joining the series will be Mikey Way (My Chemical Romance, my guess is voice of Jazz), Jaime King (Sin City, my guess is voice of Arcee), Gregg Berger (G1 Grimlock and likely reprising the role), and Samoa Joe as Predaking. Returning actors include Wil Wheaton (Perceptor), Judd Nelson (Rodimus), and Kari Wahlgren (Windblade). The final season will launch sometime in the second quarter (so Spring/Summer).

Update: The pair released the official voice cast and role list along with poster for Megatronus.

Beast Wars Leaders Sing Us A Merry Christmas

A Transformers tradition continues, this time with a new voice in the mix. For the last few years the voice of Transformers: Beast Wars Megatron, David Kaye, posts a Merry Christmas message in the voice of the character. In a response to last year's message, Beast Wars Optimal Primal aka Garry Chalk sung us a response (below). Of course Megatron could not let this go unanswered and so below is his reply. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

First Look at Bumblebee and Hailee From Movie

UK's Empire Magazine (via ComicBookMovie) what I think is the first official look at Bumblebee: The Movie stars Hailee Steinfeld and VW Beetle alt mode. In addition director Travis Knight spoke about the movie.
"I wanted to approach this massive, expansive franchise and really focus in on a tiny corner of the canvas. Everything I've tried to do at Laika, searching for an artful blend of darkness and light, intensity and warmth, humour and heart, I wanted to bring to the Transformers franchise."

"At its core it's just a beautiful love story between two broken souls who find each other and heal each other. I grew up loving those classic Spielbergian Amblin films. And we're trying to evoke that kind of emotion in this movie, fusing a rich coming-of-age story with some sci-fi insanity."
