A little voice talent update for yesterday's Transformers: Robots in Disguise cartoon news, Constance Zimmer will be voicing a Transformer. Yesterday's Variety article listed her, but didn't mention who or what type of character she would be voicing. She joins Will Friedle, who will reprise his role as Bumblebee, Darren Criss as Sideswipe, Mitchell Whitfield as Fixit, and Ted McGinley in a yet to be revealed role.

Zimmer tweeted the following earlier today:

I'm a Transformer!!! But I can't tell u much more, yet...

She's either an Elite Guard cadet, a bombastic Dinobot, a Mini-Con (if it's not Fixit), a Decepticon, or something else.

Autobot tap out wrote:Character views and hopes:
Bumblebee= himself
Sideswipe = wfc ?
Fixit totally looks like one of the Armada minicons
Dinobot shut up and take my money
Minicon ???


Same guy I think ;)

Fixit could be female. Armada Sureshock I think was implied to be female, since this is an obvious homage, they might carry it over.

Highly doubt she'd be a Dinobot. Not being sexist here, but the idea of a female Dinobot is just...wrong? (Go ahead and curse my soul fangirls :HEADHURTS: )

My money is on Fixit, Unknown Cadet or a 'Con

A female Dinobot could be a girlfriend for Grimlock. All he has to do is act a fool around her until she understands that Grimlock likes her.

Or she could be, you know, her own character not tied to any man.

Just sayin'.

I'd think it'd be better to have a normal Femme that causes Grimlock to lose his grim side. It'd be sweetened with a bit of character development, regarding her thinking of him as just another dumb Dinobot (I'm lookin' at you Sludge), only to figure out he's not all that stupid.

I get the feeling that, should she be the Elite guard cadet, her character and bad boy Sideswipe are gonna be the "it" couple of the series that all the shippers will be pairing together. :P

Are we ignoring the possibility of a human character? The only shows that haven't had a human sidekick were very experimental, which I doubt RID 2 will be

Well, Ms. Zimmer's Tweet did say that she's a Transformer.

But since you bring up the possibility of new human sidekicks, I hope that any new humans in this show are at least as decently-written/decently-depicted as the Burns family.

I loved Prime, minus most of season 3 and ALL of Predacons Rising, and I loved the toys. I will gladly watch this.

I hope it continues the Prime feeling and tone.
What I also hope it that these are just illustrations of the characters and not what the actual animation models will look like. Similar to the artwork we've seen for Prime.
I would love for the animation to be very close to Prime, just to have a bit of consistency for once.

A female Dinobot would be cool, especially if it's an old school Dinobot who's dumb as sh*t and awesome and adorable, while also being a freaking behemoth. I would really like to see a female version of that kind of character, since they're rare.

In Transformers: Robots in Disguise animated series news, the CEO of Polygon Pictures Shuzo Shiota has mentioned on Twitter that the studio is indeed once again invoved in the animation side of the new series. They were involved in the production of Transformers: Prime, too, so might we see some more CGI soon?

This makes me hopeful that it'll look consistent with Prime. :D

As long as this show isn't all CGI, I'll be happy. Pure CGI cartoons are a bad idea.

My fingers are crossed for at least some of the human characters to not be new. Raf, in particular, seems almost necessary to bring back, given Bumblebee's role in the show.

A grown up Raf would be neat. He was one of the more useful humans in Prime.

Several of the humans in Prime pulled their weight pretty well, actually. The one that really kind of surprised me is how dangerous MECH wound up being.

But yeah, Raf is probably one of the most useful kid sidekicks the Autobots have ever had, and he had some great character moments, too. I'm even completely cool with him being able to understand Bumblebee before he got his voice back, because Raf was, I feel, handled fairly well as a character.

On the VA announcement, I'm pretty sure she'll be the Elite Guard cadet. If so, I concur that it would make for some interesting interactions with the rebel Sideswipe.

And Polygon Pictures are simply amazing. I'm glad their back again to do this series. Though, I'm curious as to how the illustrations will translate into CGI. More specifically Fixit, since he looks like he'd fit in more with 2D animation than the others.

I wonder if the RID show is somewhat inspired by the IDW series of the same name? After all in IDW Bumblebee was leader for a short time as well as trying to stop threats Decepticon or otherwise. If so would the series after this will be titled More then Meets the Eye like the IDW comic of the same name which deals with another team of Autobots exploring? That would be neat to see. :)
