TransformersWhat do you get when you combine crazy fans, Hasbro figurines, The Transformers, and voice actors Daniel Ross, David Kaye and Peter Cullen?

An awesome video segment on GameOne, that's what!

Want to see some Transformers coverage at BotCon 2007?

If you're into Anime, video games or Transformers, you'll love watching GameOne, a news meets entertainment series on all things gaming, tech and hardcore geeky hosted on GameTrailers.com.

Daniel Ross, voice of Starscream in the Transformers video game, was the person to point me in this direction. Several voice actors from the Transformers franchise are interviewed in this segment, including Daniel. "When I landed the part of Starscream, the fan inside of me was rejoicing because I was able to marry my hobby with my career."

Canadian voice actor and Voices.com talent David Kaye (also a self-proclaimed toy geek) is in this video featured commenting on his evolving roles on The Transformers cartoon series starting out as Megatron all the way up to Optimus Prime in the new series, noting that it is harder to be a "good guy" lately than it is to be on the other side of the tracks.

Peter Cullen, Canadian born voice actor, and original voice of Optimus Prime reprising his role in Michael Bay's movie, Transformers, was also in attendance and interviewed.

Peter revealed, "It's an honor to be able to rep so many great, great fans who fought for me and I'm glad to be back, I must say."

The 2007 Anime Expo is also covered in the video, so if you're an Anime fan, be sure to watch more than just the first segment of video.

Cheers,
