D.C. Douglas, the voice of Chase from Transformers: Rescue Bots, dropped by to share a behinds the scenes video documenting his epic feud with fellow voice actor Steve Blum (aka Heatwave) during the recording of season two. It's for the most part lighthearted, but does contain a warning that it's not recommended for viewers under the age of 13. Check out the parody video embedded below, enjoy!
IGN has posted an interview with Transformers Prime's Roberto Orci regarding the next Transformers cartoon now that Transformers Prime Beast Hunters has concluded. Orci confirms that he will be producing the next series, and much of the Transformers Prime production team will be involved. He goes on to to say that while the next series will be more geared toward a younger audience it is not a reboot and it will take place within the Transformers Prime continuity. When asked if the voice cast will be returning he replied yes, provided they are interested in returning. The full interview can be viewed by clicking here.
IGN: I don’t know if you’ve heard of cynical people on the Internet, but they do exist. You know that some adult fans will say, “Oh, they’re going to make it a total kid thing now. It’s going to just be for kids!” What would you say to that, as far as the balance you’re looking to strike?
Orci: I would say that clever wit always makes it something more adult. I think the look of it, you may find, is more kid-friendly. But we certainly don’t intend to be any less entertaining or any less Transformers. But there is a little bit of truth to that. I won’t deny that also, yes, we’re trying to make sure that younger kids who really love Transformers aren’t put off by its intensity.

IGN has posted an interview with the voice of Transformers Prime Bumblebee, Will Friedle. Friedle discusses how he landed the role, which was secretly solicited to candidates as Bluestreak. He also gives his thoughts on how to voice a character who up until tonight's series finale episode, "Deadlock", has only communicated through various sound effects.
IGN: Speaking of which, was it fun for you to be working with this Transformers cast, which has some of the same voices from the old show?
Friedle: Yeah, I mean it's amazing. There's no other word for it, it's amazing. I didn't get a chance to actually work with them, but on-screen, when Peter Cullen, in that voice from my childhood, says, "Bumblebee" -- and it's going to be my voice answering -- it's like, are you kidding? I'm gonna make that my ringtone! So that to me is just an incredibly cool thing, just unbelievable. I got the same kind of vibe when I was working with Larry Kenney during ThunderCats -- those icons of not only the animation world, but those shows that were so important to me as a child. I mean, to say you're a part of Transformers, and as Bumblebee on top of that, is just unbelievably cool to me.
