Welker and cullenis what i care about i don't really care for Shia's voice or fox's voice in the game as long as it is a good game

I hope they don't have Frank voice Megatron again. His Megatron voice just doesn't match the look of Movie Megatron. Don't get me wrong, I love Frank's work on G1 Megatron, but he's just not movie Megatron for me.

Sideways: "Bite my shiny metal ass!"
