With some of the toy listings revealing some likely characters, I thought I'd cast my vote as to who I'd like to voice said characters.

First up: Lockdown. The Decepticon bounty hunter. If this Lockdown is to be anything like the Animated counterpart: I vote Liam Neeson.

Secondly, Galvatron. Now, this is a tricky one. But, ultimately, I think I found the perfect voice: Benedict Cumberbatch Don't believe me? Go watch the Main Trailer for the next The Hobbit. His voice is that of Smaug at the end. It is perfect.

Lockdown is obviously going to be based on his rotf toy bio as far as who voices him my vote is for Clancy Brown and as for galvitron my vote is Jonathan frakes

As Barricade demonstrated, the movies don't always stick with outside material. Shockwave was an excellent demonstration of that too.

Haven't seen anything with him, but I stand by my choice for Benedict Cumberbatch!

Nope.
After having seen Thor: The Dark World, Christopher Eccleston would also make a good Decepticon voice.

I wonder how nuts the fandom would go if someone other than Gregg Berger or David Kaye were cast as the voice of Grimlock. Like, if they just cast a typical celebrity film actor like Arnold Schwarzenegger or Sylvester Stallone or Vin Diesel, or maybe even Brad Garrett (who also happens to have voiced G1 Trypticon). ;)

Honestly it wouldn't bother me because (like I've said a million times before) it's not a g1 movie and fans who would gripe over it would mostly be geewhiners anyway and who really gives a slag about those idiots anyway

This is one of those strange cases that I was thinking about last night. When it comes to Gimelock's voiced appearances my mind goes to Gregg Berger, while David Kaye was good his portrayal just isn't memorable to me.

Having new takes on a character are always good, however there are some characters that are hard to separate form the voice actor (i.e. Peter Cullen is Optimus Prime. We all remember the outcry to have Peter and not George Clooney).
I have no problem with a "film actor" voicing any of the characters as long as it fits the portrayal.

As for Grimloick, my dream casting for a new voice would be Macho Man Randy Savage, if he was still alive.
