Gosh, it’s certainly been a while. Those of you with long memories, or matchless devotion to Transformers, 1980’s style will know that Leonard Nimoy voiced Galvatron in 1986’s Transformers: The Movie. Galvatron was a kind of reboot of Megatron, after Unicron got his hands on him. Unicron was a planet-sized Transformer, voiced by Orson Welles, who was seeking the Matrix of Leadership.

It’s a bit complicated. Anyway….

Nimoy is set to return to Transformers voice duties, this time as Sentinel Prime, the brother of Optimus Prime and his predecessor as leader of the Autobots. Sentinel Prime was introduced to us on the front page of Empire Magazine a couple of months back and by the sound of things, he is the Transformer found/seen on the moon during this teaser and will feature in the film’s climactic showdown in Chicago.

Needless to say, Nimoy’s gravelly tones are perfectly suited to TF voice-duties and will bring a further touch of class to an already excellent voice cast (Peter Cullen, Hugo Weaving, Frank Welker). I’m tempted to be excited about TF3 after the debacle that was Revenge of the Fallen, but once bitten twice shy, so we’ll wait and see. What do you think?

Dave has been writing for HeyUGuys since mid-2010 and has found them to be the most intelligent, friendly, erudite and insightful bunch of film fans you could hope to work with. He's gone from ham-fisted attempts at writing the news to interviewing Lawrence Bender, Renny Harlin and Julian Glover, to writing articles about things he loves that people have actually read. He has fairly broad tastes as far as films are concerned, though given the choice he's likely to go for Con Air over Battleship Potemkin most days. He's pretty sure that 2001: A Space Odyssey is the most overrated mess in cinematic history.
