David Kaye is a very busyman here at Botcon!

I was able to listen in to his panel discussion this afternoon. This was only his 3rd of four for the entire weekend (not to mention autographs).

He was extremely likable and funny. He did an off the cuff improvised 'Golf Outing' between BW Megatron, and the new Animated Optimus Prime. It was hilarious!

"Autobots suck at golf, yes..." --BW Megatron
"Megatron, where's my 5-iron?" --Animated Prime
"I left it hidden back on the ship, dolt." --BW Megatron

He also laid down the 'Rubber Ducky' Song for us in BW Megatron's voice.

Now to the really interesting stuff about the animated cartoon that he shared:

-This cartoon they are recording the voices together in the same room.
-Appearing characters that he mentioned:

Prowl (Jeff Dennis)
Prime (David Kaye)
Bumblebee (Bumper Robinson--'Chris Rock' like)
Ultra Magnus (Jeff Dennis-- very Robert Stack-y)
Arcee (Susan Blu reprisal?)
Black Arachnia (Cree Summer)
Grimlock (David Kaye --did a SNL Phil Hartman Frankenstien-y voice as an example)
Lugnut (David Kaye)
Starscream (Tom Kenney)
Ratchet (Corey Burton)
Shockwave (Corey Burton)
Megatron (Corey Burton)
Jazz (Phil LaMarr, of MadTV fame)
Blurr (Reprised by John Moshita)
Bulkhead (Bill Fagerbacky-- Patrick from Spongebob)

-He said (without giving away story...although it sounds like at ComicCon all will be revealed), that there would be G1 things surfacing, and that the comedy would be back.

-This series is scheduled to start in January 2008. He said they already wrapped up two seasons, 29 total episodes, I believe he said, and the special (if my notes are correct).

Also, he did note that recording star music spoofer Weird Al Yankovic will be a guest on an episode, as a garbage truck TF (he thought he remembered that as the form).

(If I spelled some names wrong, I apologize, the hotel internet goes in and out like the wind, and I could not get on imbd to check them.)

If you have a chance, I suggest going to visit David kaye if he is at a convention near you. He is a great personality, and a very entertaining speaker.

Hey everyone,

I received the following message from our friend Daniel at Madman Entertainment ...

Daniel from Madman :
Hi Ryan,

Just a short note to let you know our Transformers G1 Complete Collection and Transformers Animated Movie Special Edition are OUT NOW in Australia.

Australian fans should hit the stores as I hear they’re going like the proverbial hotcakes – we’ve got reorders coming in all the time so a good idea to reserve a copy.

Our major prize promotion is also going up today so Australian G1 fans can start making entries to win an Xbox 360, the Transformers game, and a truckload of other stuff. The whole front end of www.madman.com.au is being taken over by TRANSFORMERS.

Not to forget www.madman.com.au/transformers has quick links to all of our Transformers products and free downloads including (should be up later today) a podcast with a Simon Furman interview.

Cheers!

Daniel Chlebowczyk

Our own Shinobi Rendar has brought some new information about the Transformers Animated series to our attention. A new press release by Cartoon Network about the series has been released and posted on SuperHeroHype.com. Here is the Press Release:

:
The Transformers saga has captivated kids for more than 20 years. Coming on the heels of the highly anticipated live-action theatrical film being released July 3rd, by DreamWorks Pictures and Paramount Pictures, Cartoon Network and Hasbro, Inc. are announcing today that the next generation of the epic animated series is being jointly developed by the two entities for a 2008 debut on the network in the U.S. The eye-popping 2-D animated series is a new twist on the original high-octane, animated action-adventure series with new characters alongside legends such as Optimus Prime and Megatron. Each episode will present a standalone storyline featuring everyday heroes who do good deeds that triumph over evil. "Transformers Animated" series will be co-produced by Cartoon Network Studios.

Twenty-six, half-hour episodes will be produced as well as a 90-minute special of "Transformers Animated" which is scheduled for release in early 2008 on Cartoon Network in the U.S. Matt Youngberg ("Teen Titans," "The Batman") is the supervising director, Derrick Wyatt ("Teen Titans") will provide the character designs and Sam Register ("Ben 10," "Teen Titans") will serve as executive producer of the series. Marty Isenberg ("Danny Phantom," "X-Men," "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles") acts as head writer.

"We are thrilled to be working with the highly creative team at Cartoon Network on bringing the next chapter in the Transformers saga to kids and fans around the world," said Brian Goldner, Hasbro's Chief Operating Officer. "The animation style that Cartoon Network has developed really brings the lore and characters of the Transformers franchise alive in a way that has never been seen through animation."

"Transformers is a tried and true draw for our core audience," said Bob Higgins, senior vice president programming and development, Cartoon Network. "Kids love the surprise of 'More Than Meets the Eye,' combined with dynamic, clearly defined characters and epic storylines. We are thrilled to be working with Hasbro to help re-imagine this amazing franchise for a new generation of fans."

Set on Earth in the near future in Detroit, the alien Transformers are thrust into a world populated by humans and automatons. As visitors to Earth, the Transformers--Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Prowl, Bulkhead and Ratchet--work in the human world, interacting with the 'natives' in exciting and humorous ways. "Transformers Animated" has been created to showcase the heroic Autobots working together to battle the evil Decepticons and save Earth with kid-relatable plot lines filled with humor, distinctive character personalities, and dynamic action.

Hasbro and HPG, its licensing division, will expand the action-packed "Transformers Animated" series through toys, games, licensed merchandise and promotions around the world.

New Brandon has stopped by to let us know that Beast Wars II FDP #4 released! Here is what he had to say:




TFCog is excited to release our latest fan dub, episode 4 of Beast Wars II entitled "The Lake Trap," and is nothing like last summer's "The Lake House." It's been a long time since we've been able to release a new episode of Beast Wars II, but that doesn't mean we've forgotten about it by any stretch of the imagination and I doubt we'll see a large gap between 4 and 5.



Kid has discovered the Predacons building their base and has decided to keep it to himself so the Maximals can be surprised when they see it. However, a lone Maximal spells out "weakness" to Predacon eyes. Will the Predacons be able to exploit this weakness or has Kid hit the jackpot?



As always, you can download this episode from our website, TFCog.com. It is a 137 MB download and there will be a smaller version of the episode available shortly.



Feedback is appreciated! Thank you to everyone who has enjoyed the series thus far and hopefully this one as well!
