Transformers Prime Cast Officially Announced, G1 Episodes to Air on The Hub
bwbm - Friday, August 06, 2010

Hasbro Studios was at the Television Critics Association (mostly TCA for short) this morning and they discussed what to expect when The Hub, a cable network between Hasbro Studios and Discovery Communications, launches on October 10, 2010.

Two press releases coincided with the appearance, one that announced the cast of the upcoming Transformers: Prime cartoon, a CGI-based show, and the other announcing that the original Generation 1 cartoon Transformers would also air on The Hub.

The following is the Transformers: Prime cast announced in the press release (PDF); however, characters other than Mr. Cullen and Mr. Welker are still unofficial at this point.
  • Peter Cullen ("Transformers" Trilogy – Optimus Prime)
  • Frank Welker ("Transformers" Trilogy - Megatron)
  • Gina Torres ("MadTV")
  • James Remar ("Dexter"; misspelled as "Remer" in press release)
  • Josh Keaton ("Justice League: Circle of Two Earths")
  • Kevin Michael Richardson ("The Batman")
  • Markie Post ("The Fall Guy")

  • A separate press release (PDF again) announces that the original Generation 1 Transformers cartoon would also be airing on The Hub. Additional shows acquired include GI Joe: A Real American Hero, Doogie Howser, M.D., and The Wonder Years.

    It is unknown when these shows will air on the network, but there is a great possibility new episodes of Transformers: Prime will air in the "Kids Afternoon/Kids Prime" block that takes place from 1 PM to 6 PM.

    I wonder who came up with the name "Transformers: Prime". It should be called "Bayformers: Animated"

    Finally! A "voice" of reason! Heh heh, get it? 'Cause we're talking about voice acting. It's funnier when you explain it. Anyways, thanks for taking the time to post the list Onslaught! It feels more right than the previous one.

    I'd suggest reading the messages posted previous to mine. If that doesn't alleviate your confusion then nothing will.

    There've been some pretty spectacular Combiner Wars customs of late - the innovative Raiden that made a 6-part combiner in the format comes to mind. Now, a Japanese Twitter user by the name of @nekogami_red has made the Transformers Prime Decepticons into a combiner! Knock Out, Skyquake, Dreadwing, Airachnid (gotta have a helicopter in there somewhere or it's not Combiner Wars, right?), and Megatron combine to form a body for Unicron! Click through to see the photos.
    Not Optimus Prime, not Transformers Prime. Just "Prime." In a bold move, Hasbro is attempting to secure the exclusive trademark rights to use the word "Prime" in reference to "toy robots convertible to other visual toy forms." Are more Primes on the horizon? Is this a pre-emptive move to make sure nobody can Machine Robot Rescue them on a key term in the modern Transformers mythos? No way to tell, but keep reading to see the details of the filing by way of Transformers@TheMoon!
    Fans of Transformers Prime will finally get their fill with this listing that just appeared on Amazon for the Complete Series Blu-ray Boxset that is listed for release on August 12, 2016. After watching this via online streams. The great annimation of this series can finally truly be appreciated in a Blu-ray edition. There are no details on extras at this time, but the set is listed for $144.99 USD as an import, without country origin. Treat this as rumor until an official announcement likely to be made as SDCC next month.
    The Tranformers Rishing fan page on Facebook have shared news that DeNA's Transformers Rising Mobile Game will be taken offline at the end of this month, November 30th. This closure follows the Transformers Age of Extinction Movie game that was shuttered in September. Meanwhile, the Transformers: Battle Tactics game appears to still be in play with a new game now in Open Beta titled, Transformers: Frontiers.
    Thanks to Radio Free Cybertron's Diecast for the heads-up! As befits the name, Amazon has a Transformers deal for their Prime Day promotion! Amazon Prime members can get the Covenant of Primus - the super-slick book that recounts the entire history of the Transformers Aligned Continuity - for only $30! This deal is a Lightning Deal, meaning it's only available for roughly the next three hours. Click through to see the proof and the link!
