Disappointed that Frank Welker and Peter Cullen aren’t involved with the Netflix series. Looks great in HDR though.

 

This link might have been posted before but here Frank Welker and Peter Cullen (the original Megatron & Optimus Prime) explain how they weren't involved in the Netflix show.

Yep. Something to do with Netflix “not going Union”. I’m guessing it costs more to hire actors from the Screen Actors Guild so it’s a cost saving exercise. Shame as I’m sure Netflix could’ve afforded them.

It's an odd one because Netflix have an insane cast for the up coming animated of Universe series. Seems really odd that they wouldn't at least get Welker and Cullen for it.

Who's in this cast? I'm not overly familiar with any of the voice cast for Seige and Earthrise. Cullen not voicing Prime is always lamented. Although there is something to be said for not over using him.

Comparing those casts, it’s certain that Netflix see Masters Of The Universe as more of a priority than Transformers. Saying that, Transformers has had more than its fair share of live action movies, comics, toy lines and new animated series during the last twenty years.

They've certainly pushed the boat out for MOTU. Batman for Merman. Joker for Skelly. Buffy for Teela.

Flipping Cersei will voice Evil Lyn!

Is there any money left for the animation?  Is Tartakovsky and crew coming in for that?

No Worf. Boòoooo.

Michael Dorn is Worf. Kevin Michael Richardson is Cleveland Jr from Family Guy.

There’s a fabulous Easter Egg for Marvel UK readers in the latest transmission on the Earth Wars mobile game. Back in the day, Dreadwind used to reply to letters in “Dread Tidings” which complained about errors in the writing, drawing, colouring etc - very meta for an 80s kids comic - by referencing a punishment for the “Stubbies” (guys with the pencils) called the VVH, which was occasionally explained to stand for Variable Voltage Harness. Usually a dry remark like “Oops, rest assured the stubbie responsible will spend several hours in the VVH.” Today on Earth Wars, Megatron has suggested that Starscreams had his circuits scrambled by “that last session in the Variable Voltage Harness.” Brilliant.

The VVH was my second favourite thing to happen in Dread Tidings, after the time a child wrote in to describe his toy battle in some detail and made reference to losing Hi-Test in the shagpile carpet, to which Dreadwind simply replied “Can we say “shagpile” in a kids comic?”
