Autobots

  • Optimus Prime
  • Bumblebee
  • Jazz
  • Ratchet
  • Ironhide

Decepticons

  • Megatron
  • Starscream
  • Brawl
  • Bonecrusher
  • Skorpinok
  • Frenzy
  • Blackout
  • Barricade

The only actor confirmed to do a voice of the transforming robots is Peter Cullen, who will be reprising his role as Optimus Prime. Frank Welker, the original voice of Megatron is rumored to be cast in the film as well.

As far as the images go, the concept sketch above is an unconfirmed authentic rendering of Optimus Prime. However, considering the following images have been confirmed by Paramount as the real deal, the concept sketch looks pretty right on.
