- Voice of Grimlock, Gregg Berger, said character is aggressive, single minded with no filters.
- Nolan North said used young voice for Cliffjumper, deep one for Bruticus.
- Peter Jackson said actor Wallace Beery inspired voice of Ironhide.
- Troy Baker (Jazz) and Nolan worked together closely for the Cliffjumper level.
- FoC will have a Stan Bush song.
- Arcee and other fembots not in FoC due to need to standardize the parts so the smaller size would have prevented that.
