An interview with Rachael Taylor, who plays the analyst Maggie in the Michael Bay Transformers Movie, has been interviewed by Australian based news site Adelaide Now. In the article the australian actress talks about the movie and working with Michael Bay.

"Michael is extremely smart and he certainly can be challenging, but all the sweat and tears that he puts into making a film, you see that right up there on the screen. I don't know anyone that creates image like he does".

New Brandon of the FDP has stopped by to let us know they need some more voice actors. Here is his message:

Hey everyone, it's audition time! We've got a lot of characters to audition for our fan dubs here, but if you don't get one... there's still a lot more to go! We have some for both male and female voices, which isn't always the case when you're dubbing Transformers. We have fan dubs available of Victory, Beast Wars Second, Beast Wars Neo, Robotmasters, Scramble City, Zone... over 40 episodes all told! To check out our work, please visit

Also, we have bit parts, episode parts and regular parts. If you're not looking to committ to a long deal, please don't audition for the Insectrons. Please record all the lines listed for each character. I have provided screen caps for each character and a Japanese voice sample of all of the major characters as a rough guideline.

Send all auditions to bwill(at) Preferably zipped. Save the files in MP3 format if possible. File attributes should be something like 48000Hz, 192kbps, mono -- although I'm far from strict on this. Name the files CharacterName_YourName_Line#.mp3. The deadline is Sunday, July 15. Now, on to auditions.


Beast Wars Second

Scrambled Voice
First, we have a bit part... a scrambled female voice. Needs to sound ominous, with no emotion. Send in clips of gibberish, about 5-10 seconds in length.

Maximal Drill Sergeant

The drill sergeant only has a couple of lines in episode 5. Unsurprisingly, he needs to sound strong and military-like. The character is only seen briefly, at a distance and in silhouette, so you won't need to match any mouth flaps.

"Gutless cowards! This is no drill! Don't help anyone but yourself!"


Mantis is a semi-regular character and the leader of the Insectron faction in Beast Wars Second. Most of his appearances happen around episodes 6-12 or so. Looking for something strong, tough and maybe even slightly crazy (in an angry sort of way). He is a loner, despite being the leader of the group and would rather live in peace than fight, so getting caught in the middle of the Maximal-Predacon war angers him. His alternate mode should be obvious by his name.

"I am Mantis of the Insectrons and I look forward to challenging you one day!"
"The time for talking is over!"
"Those who threaten our lives are our enemies!"

Japanese Voice Sample


Bigmos is a mosquito. His voice should be deep and a little deliberate. He's always seen with Tonbot, who is pretty much the opposite of him.

"We can't let them live, Tonbot."
"Maximals, I believe we had a bit of a miscommunication."

Japanese Voice Sample


Tonbot ('tawn-bot') is loud and obnoxious. Has a high pitched voice. If I was to compare him to a character in the original Beast Wars series, it would be Waspinator. I'm not looking for a Waspy impression, but maybe something equally as obnoxious.

"Please help me! Please!"
"Wow, you Maximals are amazing!"
"We thought we'd finally found peace, then these guys had to come and ruin it for us!"

Japanese/Engrish Voice Sample


Scissorboy is the teenage/young member of the Insectrons. I'm looking for a young voice, but more of a medium sounding young voice, nothing too high.

"Are you still working on that stupid thing?"
"I had this dream about you last night, so I was hoping I'd run into you sometime!"

Japanese Voice Sample


Drillnuts is the scientist of the Insectrons. He always has gadgets that may or may not be any good, especially a device that detects rage. Looking for something that sounds "smart." I picture him with an English accent, but a Harvard lockjaw or some other similar sounding accent may also be worth a try. He doesn't need an accent, he just needs to sound intelligent. Has a medium voice.

"Look, what it does is it detects one's level of hostility."
"I've got bigger fish to fry. A missile I made myself didn't explode! I don't see why..."

Japanese Voice Sample


Powerhug is a goofy character. He's big and not really the brightest, so he should have a deep, slow voice. He likes to roll up into a ball and roll down hills until he loses control. No mouth, so it will be easy to synch the lines.

"Aaaarrrgghhhh! Help! I'm out of control!"
"And defy the code? Never. The only way I fight is like a true insect!"

Japanese Voice Sample

Beast Wars Neo


Hydra mostly appears in episode 12 (we're on 11 right now), but appears later on in the series. He likes making bad puns and he thinks he's funnier than he is. He is an old friend of Ramhorn's and is jealous of his success. Magmatron has put him incharge of the fortress planet Porcupine which has the population of 2 -- Hydra and his drone.

"Lord Magmatron, you'll never believe it, sir. The Maximals have requested landing on Porcupine!"
"I'll need some help. Send one of your troops in and we'll take their ship out."

Japanese Voice Sample

Hydra's Drone

Female voice. Needs to sound plain like a computer but still have an underlying sense of humour. Doesn't have a mouth, so there's not a lot of difficulty in synching lines. I'm relatively sure she's just in the one episode.

"With these new spaceships being built into Porcupine, it will truly be the most powerful fortress planet that has ever existed."

Japanese Voice Sample

That's it for auditions. If you have any questions, please reply to this thread or e-mail me at my address above.

Last month, we posted images here of the War Within Grimlock, which is a SDCC exclusive. Diamond Select Toys & Shop AFX, which is producing the bust, has now provided a press release, which describes the statue and character bio.



DST and internet retailer Action Figure Xpress are pleased to announce the latest exclusive available at this year’s San Diego Comic Con: the kick-butt Transformers “The War Within” Grimlock Bust! This exclusive will be limited to just 600 pieces, so head over to and make sure to order today!

Originally recruited by the Decepticons of ancient Cybertron, Grimlock became disgusted with Megatron’s brutality and joined the Autobots. A consummate warrior and strategist, Grimlock masks a surprising intellect behind his simplistic speech patterns. Though he could bring a huge array of weapons to any fight, he prefers close quarter combat with his enemies, wielding his Energon sword, or simply crushing his enemies with his bare servos. This “The War Within” Grimlock bust is limited to only 600 pieces and was sculpted by Art Asylum.
