Looks like we missed a news story last week, a pretty important one at that. It turns out that 5 months ago actress Tania Gunadi posted the following on her twitter:
Tania Gunadi wrote:Working with Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime) and Frank Welker (Megatron) is sooooo cool!!!!!"

This post came 3 months prior to the first official reveal of Cullen being involved in TF Prime, it also confirms that Frank Welker is indeed Megatron for Prime, 5 months before we had official confirmation at BotCon.

The character she is set to voice is called Miko, Miko is Japanese and means "Shaman woman" who are usually young (virgin) girls in service to gods at shrines.

This might be the characters actual name or even it's profession, only time will tell - or Tania Guandi already did in an old tweet.

Didn't BotCon release like a teaser trailer of some sort to the public? Or is it scheduled for release during SDCC? If we already got the video, and I somehow missed it, can someone shoot me the link please? :lol: ;)

I can probably done tell that you people will say you done no about this but leaves me to say why I should reveal any of this to you or not.

1. you will say where is my proof

2. you will say you done heard on this

3. you will bash me and call me troll or what ever the hell a troll means what is troll internet slang.


Well anyways the new character is call Miko on who Miko his is unknown but her voice actor has been revealed unknown how old Miko will be rather a young child such as Sari or an early teenager such as Spike in Generation 1 unknown guess we will have to watch the Botcon reveal to learn more on Prime.

Now you can bash me all you want i dont care anymore


Geez, we're not terrorists.

...Are we? :lol: :lol: :lol: Sorry had to throw in a little joke there. Anyway, don't be all down dude. When I sent in some apparently missed news as well, they took it in and said thanks, and BAM, walking down the street a happy man for helping out fellow TF fans. Feel the same way! ;)

The show takes place on Earth. There are going to be human characters in it like there are in every Transformers series minus WFC and Beast Machines. Without humans, there's little point to the whole "robots in disguise" bit.

Hmm... She looks like she has an annoying voice. Well not her actual voice, but whatever voice she ends up using for the character. But then again, I could be wrong.

You should try using proper grammar. That usually helps when communicating and will most likely cut down on some of the "bashing" you might endure.

Ouch, harsh, DM! But, after reading that original post...I would tend to agree.

Wow, I remember reading that on TFW, never occured to me that it wasn't posted here. I would have done it earlier if I realised that. On topic, I am glad that Cullen and Welker are confirmed voice actors but I don't usually like her work.

I spend countless hours researching using various techniques I been with Transformers since day one original Generation 1 fan-boy I was about 5 or 6 years old when TF 1st aired I was a little feller.

Also back in those days my favs

Gundam (Amuro Ray)
Thundercats
Superfriends old version
Spider-Man (old school) with Firestar and Iceman
Scooby Doo
The Centurians
Smurfs
Robotech
Voltron
GI Joe

I feel like im back in the 80's with many of my shows getting revived GI Joe, TMNT, Beavis & Butt-Head (90's)
Thundercats and Robotech getting made into a movie.

It was good to be a kid back then collecting toys and watching awesome cartoons.


TF 3 will mark my 25th anniversary of me being a TF Fan I enjoyed almost all of the series minus Beast Machines but it did have it's moments.

I am one of the few who actually liked all the Unicron Saga also Animated and the live Films.


I liked some of the games such as ROTF hated the 1st one and Cybertron is friggen awesome.

Just some though though if this game is pre-G1 how come some characters that were just introduced during G1 are into this game

Breakdown = Stunticon G1 Created on Earth
Onlslaught = Combaticon G1 Created on Earth
Air Raid & Aerial Bots = Superion Created on Earth G1

Jetfire others are Pre-G1 as Jet Fire was a scientist who crash landed on Earth.

Barricade is Movie-Verse he can be used in anything I guess.

This game does an awesome job explaining what happens to Iacon and why they had to flee Cybertron nice tie-in with G1 now everything is completed and we know it all know minus Transformers 3 & Prime.


I will try in the future to do a better job on my research and make sure my research isnt already founded by another site or already mentioned on here I will also try and post proof of my findings also.

But my research is hard to do that cause of my techniques using not 1 site but several sites more than one then I combine my findings and make since of that into one report.

Sorry I am not perfect on my typing, grammar, or spelling I type how I wanna type I am not perfectionist like you all seem to be or my English teacher from high school but I am no longer in High School.

I will try to do better though.

Also on Prime it will be 3 seasons like animated with it being confirmed to be 65 episodes I broke it down like so.

Season 1 confirmed to have 26 episodes so it breakes down like this 13 for season 1 prt .1 the other 13 will make out season 1 part 2. usually these have 2 prt ending such as in Animated with Megatron Rising.

Season 2 will be 20 episodes with 10 for 1 10 for the other same deal

Season 3 will be 19 thus making the series 65 total unknown how to break up 19 episodes i guess 10 for 1st then 9 for second with a 3 prt ending.

The hell are you talking about? I havent seen anyone (for the most part) do any of that. And I expected a TF Prime pic damnit! :evil:

(After reading) Miko? The hell kind of name is that? Sounds Japaneese. Oh no. Please for the love of God tell me this show doesnt take place in Japan! PLEASE!

There is nothing known on Miko just on who her VA is that is all.

Nothing has been said or shown on how old she will be or her ehthnic backgrounds on here her nationality remains a mystery.

It just says Miko - VA nothing else this was shown awhile back on Seibertron also other sites confirming Miko

So 2 humans confirmed

Gen. Fowler
Miko unknown human

Miko could also be a male name also as Female's VA's have voiced Males before such as in Anime's so it is unknown if Miko is Male or Female.

Man I cant wait until Botcon to see this bad boy.

1. How will Prime Opening Sequence Be.

2. How will the opening Theme of the show sound.

3. How many Autobots/Decepticons will be on the Teams.

4. What will the show look like with CGI Mixed

5. Will The Fallen be the Main Villian

Botcon better be good and show us more I dont expect a lot revealed on Prime just a short teaser and an over all look on Prime.

Reveal on the story's plot where it takes place location I know on Earth but what City when in time will it be in the past, present or distant future.

I suspect we will see some of the characters to be revealed but most we done no about some we dont such as Decipticons.

Please Botcon bring out the pooper scooper give me some info I can take it from there.
