It's the moment we've all been waiting for. Transformers: Animated left us wanting more, and we're going to get that more with Transformers: Prime. Regardless whether or not the cartoon receives it's own toyline, the cartoon itself looks to be very promising. Straight from the horse's mouth, as well as various sources, check out the cast information below!

THE SHOW

The Transformer saga continues as Optimus Prime and the Autobots battle the evil Decepticons, led by Megatron. With the future of the human race hanging in the balance, three young teenagers become critical in helping the Autobots prevent the Decepticon Army from conquering Earth. Prepare to experience the world of Transformers like never before.

The Transformer franchise sees the triumphant return of the Autobots characters to television in cutting edge computer-generated animation. The series both deepens the epic mythology of Autobots and Decepticons, while starting fresh for a new generation of viewers and future Transformers fans. With a bold and modern new look, Optimus Prime, Bumblebee and others are back to roll out against Megatron’s latest plots to conquer Earth. The Autobots may be few against the Decepticons menace, but they find increased strength here on their home away from home via bonds they've forged with three human teenagers. Make no mistake, the Transformers series will deliver heavy metal action and nail-biting suspense

Wow! The Rock?!

Finally.... FINALLY The Rock has come togeather with Transformers! The Peoples Champion and The Robots in Disguise are in the same show at the same time and... wait, The Fires Of Inferno was never waiting for that. The Fires Of Inferno was a little more eager to hear about the rest of the cast not this jabroni. But... um...why... in the BLUE HELL, are there more humans than Decepticons? That aint' right at all. I mean you got five candy ass Autobots and four jabroni beatin' pie eatin' trail blaizin' eyebrow raisin' all around smacken' down Decepticons! Then you got half a dozen pink squishy guys. Doesn't really work for The Fires Of Inferno.

K, I'm done being a douche.



No I'm not.

IF YA SMEEEEEELLLLLLLL-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LAAA WHAT THE FIRES OF INFERNO IS COOKING!!

Maybe Cliff Jumper will do the people's elbow or the rock bottom on the decipticons instead of the Smackdown Hotel it is now the Cyberton Hotel.

Look this is just the 1st season of Prime they will more than likely be more bots introduced as the seasons get longer look at previous shows they always started out with a few bots on them such as Animated or Armada then as they go on thier teams increased.

Usually this serves as plot devices for that show to introduce new characters expect the same treatment for Prime.

Prime is scheduled to be 65 episodes but if Prime does good maybe beyond that depends on the ratings or could be the next Animated be axed without no real conclusion.

I am looking forward to Prime just worried about thier Transformations and how they will sould also curious about what kind of powers they will have.

So far Ratchet looks awesome and I dig Arcee curious to see thier personalities devolop on the show and see them grow and change over the seasons.

My guess on how many seasons 3 also dont expect all 26 episodes of Prime to air at once 13 one part then other 13 next part.

@First-Aid

Easy, man. Adam Baldwin is legit. As to the other Baldwins, I'll leave that up to you, but Adam does good work as both an on-screen and voice actor.

Anyways, this seems like all good news except all the number of humans. I have this weird concept in my mind that the Transformers were the main focus of....well...Transformers.


Call me crazy if you must......

Ok, I was looking at the cast list, Peter Cullen and Frank Welker - fantastic, Dwayne Johnson - eh, but then I saw something amazing, Ernie Hudson. OMG, Ernie Hudson is in it!!!!! Winston Zeddemore is one of my childhood hero's. Transformers and Ghostbusters were my favorite things as a child and now they are combined (kinda).

I was waiting for the "too many humans" compaint to pop up. Can anyone tell me how many humans were in G1? Anyone? Anyone? There were FIVE regular human characters, two of which were in virtually every episode.

How many human characters were in Animated? A ton more than 5. Most of the villains were human, but there were three humans in every episode- Fanzone, Sumdac, and Sari.

Wait until you see how it's written before you poopoo the number of humans.

The logic escapes me. They have already said that the story takes place on Earth. So, let's try and make a cartoon on Earth that completely avoids the 6.5 billion people on it.

The only thing better than the Rock as Cliffjumper is, if Jason David Frank voiced Rodimus.

The Rock are you kidding me? Lat voice acting gig i heard him do wasnt that great. And why are there so many damn humans? Hasbro needs to get the show off earth.
Re: Transformers: Prime Information and Voice Cast (1123069)

didnt they say Cliffjumper was supposed to transform into some sort of muscle car (instead of just a repaint of bumblebee for once) I guess the people who cast TF:Prime thought a muscle car and The Rock would make a crazy sort of sense :P

Cliffjumper: "Can you smell what the Cliff is cooking?!"

Ratchet: "Sniff, sniff, smells like an burnt out engine to me."

lol Couldn't resist.

This looks like an awesome cast right here. I really want Adam Baldwin and The Rock's characters to fight each other, it's a perfect set up for a Tough guy vs Tough guy rivalry.

Also Ernie Hudson is win. With a name like agent flowers, and what little I know about Ernie's career, it sounds like he's going to be the straight man who get into comedic situations. Or at least that what Humor Bot 2.0 tells me.

These two posts pretty much some up my thoughts on human involvement in Transfomers.

But overall the cast looks solid, and The Rock's inclusion is very surprising, but not in a bad way. I'm looking forward to at least having a new series to watch the more info comes out.

What the f is The Rock doing in the TF universe? I guess the last family film he did must have flopped real bad, Im surprised he hasn't gone down the dtv action and or exploitation film road already. Seen it happen with other wrestlers as I have noticed on dvd covers at the local video shop. As for Ernie Hudson being in this I think that's cool. Ghostbusters is awesome that is all.

young teenagers from less evolved, less technically advanced species always manage to overcome trained military personnel from invading armies. they should put army recruitment leaflets in pokemon cards (or whatever it is the young uns are into these days)
