Transformers Prime and Rescue Bots Executive Producer Jeff Kline and voice actor supreme Steve Blum (Starscream, Heatwave) recently took part in a chat session with fans. This great and insightful chat session shed some light on a few cool elements of the series, including the answer to the question - are Transformers Prime and Transformers Rescue Bots in the same continuity?
We can proudly reveal, direct from Executive Producer Jeff Kline himself, yes, these two great shows are indeed in the same continuity! The creative team felt it was important that both shows share the same continuity - so when you see Optimus Prime in Rescue Bots, it means he has briefly taken a leave of absence from Jasper, Nevada.
Other questions covered include:
Jeff Kline says the team is pursuing their top choices for guest actors, to have them come in and do a spot where there is space in their schedules. There are a few guest voices coming up in Prime, and a couple in Rescue Bots too.
Jeff and Steve went on to say that their list of top choices for guest actors stems from people they want to work with, who they feel would be good with the group (Steve Blum commented that he's already got two of the people he really wanted to work with right there, Peter Cullen and Frank Welker)
How do you top the season 1 finale?
Jeff Kline - it is a big challenge going forward, though they feel they can and will top it with season 2. Jeff promises they will deliver on some expectations, while delivering some surprises on others. No specific clues though, the whole conversation was very spoiler free.
Will there be a Transformers Prime movie?
Jeff Kline - It is a real possibility, but it depends on a lot of things going right.
They did a showing of the season 1 finale at a local theatre and people were very impressed with how the series looked on the big screen. "And that was season 1" - sounds like there is even more jaw-dropping CGI in store for season 2!

Hasbro’s 2011 4th Quarter Earnings Conference Call was held just moments ago. We at TFW2005 joined the call with Hasbro to know what’s heading our way in 2012.
Most of the information was regarding financial matters and information which most of you already may know. But, it was interesting to know what’s going on behind-the-scenes.
Hasbro mentioned few tidbits of what they have planned to do in 2012 and mentioned that there will be “New Characters
” introduced for Transformers. This was said immediately after Hasbro’s CEO Bryan Goldner mentioning Transformers: Prime and therefore it is safe to assume that these new characters were regarding Transformers: Prime.
We have noted-down some important facts from the Conference Call for our dear readers. You can check out TFW2005’s coverage of the event, after the jump.Read Replies (0)
