Scott McNeil - After appearing in a few films and two episodes of Highlander: The Series, he provided voices for Beast Wars, as Waspinator, Dinobot, Rattrap, and Silverbolt. He has described this as the work he is most proud of. On another fan favorite show, Dragon Ball Z, he was cast as the original voice of Piccolo and various other characters. He then provided the voice of Duo Maxwell on Mobile Suit Gundam Wing and Principal Kuno on Ranma 1/2.
Trevor Devall is a prolific voice artist, having performed in hundreds of animated productions including television movies, series, feature films and video games. Some highlights: Rocket Raccoon of Guardians of the Galaxy in Marvel’s Ultimate Spiderman, Emperor Palpatine/Darth Sidious, Admiral Ackbar and Jar Jar Binks in Lego Star Wars: The Yoda Chronicles, Iron Will, Hoity Toity and Fancy Pants (for which he was nominated for a UBCP Award for Best Voice) on My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, Dukey on Cartoon Network’s Johnny Test, Captain America and others in Marvels’ Wolverine vs Sabretooth, Jayce on the globally popular League of Legends video game, Colossus on Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men, Dad on Disney’s Kid vs Kat, Mu Laflaga in Gundam Seed, Togusa in Ghost in the Shell-SAC, Mr. Palmer, Ike and many others onZeke’s Pad, Moordryd Payne on Dragon Booster, Aizawa on Death Note, Chang and the maniacal Irishman Leigarch on Black Lagoon, Alpha Q in Transformers: Energon,Pyro in X-Men: Evolution, Wild Weasel in G.I. Joe: Valor vs. Venom, Scourge in Transformers: Cybertron, and the voice of the alien helmsman Hermiod on Stargate: Atlantis.
Takara always seems to deliver unique repaints that homage niche characters from their market, and black Optimus Primes. Gregevor is one of those homages going back to the early 2000's RID character Rollbar. Nemesis Prime I guess could be said is a tribute to Scourge/Black Convoy from the same line; even though there have been many takes on the black Prime over the years. Both are worth a look if you're interested in well done repaints.

NEW YORK, May 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Launching today, TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS: DINO ISLAND, an interactive storybook app from PlayDate Digital, under license by Hasbro, Inc., features the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots changing into dinosaur robot forms to save the day. When the going gets tough, the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots go "Dino Bot" in this exciting and educational story, perfect for early and emerging readers.
Similar to PlayDate's storybook app TRANSFORMERS RESCUE BOTS: SKY FOREST RESCUE, which launched in 2014, OPTIMUS PRIME recruits the reader to help the Rescue Bots train and join the action as Griffin Rock Rescue's newest cadet. To rescue Professor Baranova and Frankie Greene from the clutches of Colonel Quarry, the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots need to change into their dinosaur modes, but that's not enough to bring their friends home safely. The reader becomes the hero in this interactive adventure by helping the TRANSFORMERS Rescue Bots train for their mission, outsmart Colonel Quarry, and give Blades the flight bot the push he needs to take flight!
