Now that was a fucking cool video with Cullen and Welker. I am so getting an XBOX 360 just for this game. Though maybe the Wii version will be cool enough that I don't need to get an XBOX 360.

I admit, Welker did sound more like his Megatron during this interview than the previous soundbytes released. I can not wait to get this game!

Awesome! Nice to hear Frank's voice too.

My real question is: is the site playing the actual theme music from the movie????

I think that's because his voice gets run through a voice synthesizer. If you listen carefully then listen to a video clip of Megatron from the cartoon series, you can tell it's the same voice. Remember, this is the same guy that did Soundwave and many other characters. His voice was processed for several of them.

Good point, I like HMW, but this may very well be taking it to the next level....

How do I get to all the stuff? All I can get to is the login screen and once I login I get sent to a blank "thank you" page which has virtually nothing but the background on it.

Can someone please make an avi file of this somehow for everyone to download? That interview was awesome! :)

I have a feeling Frank Welker will do the "Megatron voice" for Starscream in the movie for some reason...

i agree that welker sounded a little off during the interview....but i find then during the end where he says "die autobot" that totally sounded like megatron from the cartoon...so as someone else pointed out, its probably due to voice synthesizers and stuff...

the question is though, if megatron has so few lines in the movie then why not let welker do it? i mean they let him do the voice for the game which is likely to have way more dialogue from him...so why bother hiring a "name" voice for such a tiny part?

either way this is gonna be a transformastic summer....yes i'm lame :P

complete **** of a site to get onto if your broadbands not up to it. had to skip the intro cause it wouldnt load for me.

and is it just me or is the video quality crap? still it was great to see the two old guys laugh it up. you really get the sense these guys really get on and its not an act. class men the pair of them.

i too thought welker sounded a little off but then again the original series did have a little giggery pokery on the voices so that'd explain it. bit when they stuck the untreated cullen on the end of the first trailer at the official site. and when welker did the "sinister" megatron it really came through :grin:

great to see that one way or the other we get to have our old favourites back in their greatest roles, next to the movie its the game that interests me the most !

This game looks badass! Let's hope it plays that way as well. Everytime I hear new prime soundbytes it makes me feel like I'm 10 years old watching the cartoons again.

It's still in it's infancy I think. I signed up for the game, but I don't think it's online yet.

What did everyone pic for the name the robot section? I picked Quickmix and Erector. I love how they are showing both robot mode and vehicle mode of bots not yet named. Cement mixer was better then the fork lift though.

Kind of laggy video, but awesome nonetheless. Welker is a bit rusty, but still good, and Cullen sounds EXACTLY the same, which is good. "DIE AUTOBOT!"
