We’re bringing you more coverage from the San Diego Comic Con 2015 with coverage of Hasbro’s Robots in Disguise Panel! Periodically reload this post for the latest updates after the break.
The panel kicks off with the usual introductions.
Jeff Kline “Robots in Disguise is one of the top rated shows on Cartoon Network”
A video preview showcasing some of what is coming up later in the season is currently playing.
Shows some clips of Drift, Windblade, Optimus Prime with a huge sword (“Supreme Mode”)
Currently talking about the background of the show, nothing we’ve not heard previously – the whole lighter direction like Generation 1 etc. They also wanted to take advantage of new 3D style CGI
Voice cast are joking around on a tangent. Real sense of camaraderie among the crew.
Constance Zimmer is talking about how this was her first involvement in Transformers, and her first voice role.
They’re off on a tangent again. It’s a pretty chaotic panel.
Apparently they’re like this when they’re recording, too.
Grimlock’s voice is a product of the actors playing off each other and ad-libbing.
Cast considers themselves blessed to have fantastic writing.
Constance is apparently quite animated in recording sessions – swings her arms and gestures a lot. Has apparently hit people by accident before.
Over to a Q&A now. No toy news.
More Dinobots and female characters are in the show’s future. At least one Dinobot to come.
Someone requested the voice actors do a drive-thru skit.
No word on if we’ll see Megatron or Starscream in this series.
An older version of Jack (and other humans) from Transformers Prime was originally planned to be in the series, but a decision was taken to leave him out. That said, we might see some familiar faces sooner or later. No word on whom.
No word on if Season 2 is happening, yet.
Closing up the panel by showing a clip of Megatronus in action from the finale.
