* HeyItsThatVoice:
** Of course, we must start with Creator/PeterCullen and Creator/FrankWelker reprising their roles as Optimus Prime and Megatron. [[spoiler: Frank Welker also reprises the role of Soundwave.]]
*** [[spoiler: It should be noted that Welker uses the same voices for Soundwave as he did for ''both'' G1 and the Live Action films. (The only actual difference between the two is that the G1 version uses electrical modulation). In ''Prime'', it's actually a simultaneous broadcast of both the modulated and un-modulated versions.]]
** Wrestling/DwayneJohnson was Cliffjumper in the pilot.
** Creator/SumaleeMontano is Arcee.
** Creator/KevinMichaelRichardson is Bulkhead, Makeshift, and [[spoiler:The ''Nemesis''[=/=]Trypticon]]. For Bulkhead he seems to be using his [[VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic Jolee Bindo]] voice.
** Creator/JeffreyCombs is Ratchet.
** Creator/JoshKeaton is Jack Darby.
*** And [[Series/NightCourt Markie Post]] is his mom.
** Creator/SteveBlum is [[TheStarscream Starscream]], who seems to be channeling [[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderman the Green Goblin]] and [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Orochimaru]]. He's also Darksteel.
** Creator/DaranNorris is Knock Out.
*** And he's not the first [[Anime/DigimonFrontier intelligent, metallic villain]] he's played.
*** Hey, [[WesternAnimation/TheFairlyOddParents Timmy's dad]] has always been obsessed with a red sports car.
*** He was also [[WesternAnimation/TheSpectacularSpiderMan J. Jonah Jameson]].
** Creator/AdamBaldwin is Breakdown.
*** Funnily enough, Creator/GinaTorres is Airachnid.
** [[Film/{{Ghostbusters}} Ernie Hudson]] is Agent Fowler.
** Creator/ClancyBrown is Silas. [[Franchise/{{DCAU}} Not the first time]] he's played a [[ComicBook/LexLuthor tech-obsessed villain]].
** Richard Green (known to some as [[VideoGame/XMenLegends Mag]][[VideoGame/MarvelUltimateAlliance neto]] or [[WesternAnimation/TheBatman Hugo Strange]]) is Skyquake.
** James Horan ([[Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine Ikat'ika]]) is Wheeljack.
** Creator/JohnNoble is Unicron.
** Bit easier to miss, but Reggie Bannister is the security guard from episode 10.
** Creator/TonyTodd, who most Transformers fans know as [[Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen The Fallen]], is Dreadwing.
*** In [[LicensedGame the game]], FredTatasciore fills in for him.
** Robert Forster, also known as [[Series/{{Heroes}} Arthur Petrelli]], is General Bryce.
** Creator/JohnDiMaggio is the ConspiracyTheorist Vogel from "Tunnel Vision".
** Creator/DavidKaye is Hardshell. He sounds like a more guttural and vicious WesternAnimation/BeastWars Megatron.
*** Or perhaps like ''WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated'' Lugnut without the metallic effect.
** Creator/DavidSobolov is Shockwave.
** Billy Brown ([[Series/{{Dexter}} Mike Anderson]]) is Cliffjumper in "Out Of The Past".
** Creator/NolanNorth is Smokescreen. He's also Skylynx.
** Creator/GeorgeTakei is Alpha Trion. It's not the first time he's voiced a [[WesternAnimation/TransformersAnimated mentor Autobot]], either.
** Creator/RobinAtkinDownes is Thunderwing in [[LicensedGame the game]].
** Creator/MichaelIronside is Ultra Magnus.
** Creator/PeterMensah is Predaking.
** [[spoiler: Creator/WillFriedle is Bumblebee]].
** The Hungarian dub brought back from the [[Film/{{Transformers}} movies]] the voices of: Optimus Prime, Megatron, Starscream, surprisingly Arcee (and it works!), and even more surprisingly Agent Simmons... as Agent Fowler. Besides these...
*** Megatron is also [[Anime/TransformersCybertron Leobreaker]] and [[WesternAnimation/TheClevelandShow Cleveland's dad]].
*** Starscream slips over into [[Film/TheLordOfTheRings Gollum]] very often.
*** Arcee's also [[Manga/{{Naruto}} Tsunade]].
*** Yes, Fowler is Winston from Film/{{Ghostbusters}}... [[WesternAnimation/TheRealGhostbusters the animated version]]. He's also WesternAnimation/{{Superman|TheAnimatedSeries}}.

*** Wheeljack is {{Fanboy|AndChumChum}}.
*** Breakdown has the voice of [[Manga/{{Trigun}} Vash the Stampede]].

** The reason the toyline included the character Thundertron was because he was supposed to be in season 3, until the storyline was altered.

** Fowler's Unit:E was supposed to start a MassiveMultiplayerCrossover between many Hasbro franchises, most of them obscure [[labelnote: For example]]WesternAnimation/{{MASK}}, Franchise/{{Micronauts}}, Sectaurs, [[WesternAnimation/{{Inhumanoids}} Primor]][[AdaptationNameChange dia]], WesternAnimation/{{Jem}}, WesternAnimation/{{GIJoe}}, Stretch Armstrong, TabletopGame/{{CandyLand}}...[[/labelnote]], as seen in [[https://scans-daily.dreamwidth.org/3362163.html the comic that came out on NYCC 2011]].

* TroubledProduction. [[http://sunnybutte.tumblr.com/post/131367083128/that-explains-a-lot-of-the-mess-that-was as seen]][[http://sunnybutte.tumblr.com/post/131368170623/and-if-you-were-wondering-why-beast-hunters-was here]], the show went through many problems, mostly because of miscommunication with the other branches of the [[TransformersAlignedUniverse Aligned continuity]] and a late change in director [[ExecutiveMeddling with a different idea for the third season]].


Added DiffLines:

** The whole ''Beast Hunters'' line was imposed at the last minute (see TroubledProduction above), forcing the team to scrap their original plans for season 3 ([[http://sunnybutte.tumblr.com/post/131384199723/hey-all-getting-a-lot-of-questions-about-those apparently involving Maximals and Predacons and a "wild-west"-style exploration of the reborn Cybertron]]).
