Not sure how I feel about Seth Green trading in for Leo. On the one hand, I hate it when voice actors change during a series… on the other hand, I like Seth Green.

Really can’t get on board for the Bay movie. They’re so ugly, I just have to look away every time they’re on screen, Bay’s shitty track record completely aside.

You are right prplbeedoo I hate when voice actors change but Seth Green is good
