The voice of Transformers Animated Optimus Prime, David Kaye, won't be making a return in the newest Transformers cartoon - Prime. In a recent interview with the folks over at The Intergalactic Highway, Kaye reveals just that.

Q: Has there ever been a role you didn’t get that you were really disappointed about?

A: Ya funny enough. ANYTHING in the new Transformer series. But hey I’ve had a great long run and it’s a new deal for the creators of the new show and it’s a clean slate but I have to admit I was sad to see it go. That’s show business folks There’ve been a couple of animated features too, also Star Wars and even the new Transformer films

I now dub this show an utter failure without having seen or heard it without Kaye's sweet pipes.

Kaye is legend. Don't know what they were thinking not giving him a role. Its about like turning away Peter Cullen. One of the most memorable voice actors of transformers, yessss.

I find that odd he couldn't been worked in. The man been such success as multiple characters. I haven't heard a David Kaye voice over I didn't like. it's a shame since he really wanted to continue working with it. May be he will get brought in later as new characters for season 2. It's not over yet hehe.

How about bringing back Scott McNeil or Neil Kaplin?

Those guys put in really solid performances

No Kaye. This makes me a sad panda :(. Big fan of BW Megs. That damn voice mmm.Kaplan did return to the TF universe via the ROTF videogame. McNiell is certainly due for a comeback. The only way I get my McNeil fix is watching Care Bears. His Grumpy Bear makes me happy.
