Still some time from the release of the Bumblebee movie in Japan, but a few Voice Actors for the Japanese dub have been revealed, with the voices for Optimus and Bumblebee having previous Transformers voice experience.
Ryohei Kimura will be voicing Bumblebee, while Tessho Genda will be voicing Optimus Prime.

After TF5 we saw a heap of concept art being released by the various artists a few months after the movie was out, and in less than a month from Bumblebee's release we already have a heap of concept art being revealed online.
Fortunately TFW have collated quite a bit of it for us which you can see here and also here.



Quote:
Decepticon Warriors By Joshua Viers – Several early ideas and designs for Decepticons enemies. Some of them very different from what we saw on the film.
Decepticon Heads By Joshua Viers – Some close-up images of some variations of heads for the Decepticons.
K2SO Decepticon Warrior By Joshua Viers – Another Decepticon, this time inspired by the K2SO droid from Star Wars.
Bumblebee Battle Masks Concepts By Joshua Viers – Some incredible and cool ideas for Bumblebee’s battle masks.
Alternate Credit Sequence By Christopher Gabathuler – A very different and original concept for the credits of the film. Very different from what it was used in the final cut.
Blitzwing Concept art By Mark Yang – Early idea for the full body of one of the main villains in the movie.
Bumblebee Scenery & Backgrounds By Thomas Pringle – Interesting possibilities for scenes in the movie. We have a Bumblebee Garage scan, The Sector 7 meeting with the Decepticons, a Bumblebeee chase in Vietnam, and a great concept art showing a frozen Megatron (using what seems to be an old 2007Movie concept art).
Bumblebee Concept Art, Weapons & Props By Tim Flattery – A lot of ideas, parts, weapons, gadgets and event and alarm clock-bot!
Decepticon Warriors By Joshua Viers – Some more early ideas and designs for 4 Decepticon warrior variants. Fairly different from the ones we saw on screen.
Dropkick Concept Art By Shane Baxley – Full body art (front and back) of the design of Dropkick as a single changer based on the 1973 AMC Javelin.
Dropckick Alt Mode Concept Art By Shane Baxley – Dropkick AMC Javelin car mode color variations exploring paint, ride heights, lights, non functioning intakes, etc.
Bumblebee Battle Mode By Shane Baxley – Concept of Bumblebee in battle mode based on his first appearance on Earth after scanning a jeep.
Shatter And Dropkick Concept Art By Shane Baxley – A concept for the key scene on the movie where the two Decepticon villains track Bumblebee while creating the basis for Internet at Sector 7 base.
Optimus Prime Concept art By Mark Yang – Awesome art of Optimus Prime in his Earth mode.

I'm so glad that that scene was never made. |

Energon =/= AllSpark energy. Cos otherwise why would they even need the AllSpark Cube if every Cybertronian's basic fuel is capable of creating new Cybertronians?

The other scene where Memo and Charlie compare Bumblebee with the Gobots in a conversation, while hilarious in a meta way is also silly from a canonical POV. So I'm also glad that they deleted it. The quick and subtle moment where we see Memo reading a Gobots book before discarding does the same trick without stalling the story.

More concept art from the Bumblebee movie, with some close up details of some characters, Cybertron, the communications tower, and a Decepticon who didn't end up in the Movie.
