Redo time!
Optimus - Peter Cullen (Can't decide between '84 and '07)
Megatron - Hugo Weaving gets this. One of the few with an intimidating Megatron voice. David Kaye (BW) is and extremely close second, and Corey Burton is a close third!
Starscream - tie between Dobson and Blum
Soundwave - Isaac Singleton
Rodimus - Dick Gautier
Jazz - Phil LaMarr
Bumblebee - Johnny Bosch
Unicron - MARK ACHESON!!! love his Unicron voice! (You know who would make a great Unicron voice? This guy http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vhx4ZAH_Md4 especially when he says "There is much talk")
Ironhide - Jess Harnell
Ratchet - Jeffrey Combs
Arcee - Sumalee Montano
Ultra Magnus - Robert Stack
Galvatron - Leanard Nimoy
Prowl - Wayne Lewis
Omega Supreme - Fred Tatasciore (With Scott McNeil as a close second!)
Grimlock - Gregg Berger by far
Zeta Prime - Kevin Micheal Richardson
Blackarachnia - Cree Summer
Hot Shot - Micheal McConnohie
Sideswipe - Travis Willingham

I'll do more later!

:shock: Not bad. Very interesting choice. And it's Dee Bradley Baker, of all people.

I myself have thought of two other voices who would make good Unicrons.

One is Fred Tatasciore, who voiced Trypticon (and Megatron) in War for Cybertron - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YzeSJCs9sGk

The other is Frank Welker, who, among all his MANY roles, voiced the Cave of Wonders in Aladdin - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=90UPb4i3SxQ

What the- :? :?: *looks at BTVA page* Oh. I... I think someone on that site's a little confused. That other Prime was never identified as anyone. I guess someone who played WFC and saw the movies figured that Zeta Prime was among the Seven Primes and jumped the gun without knowing. So, yeah, it's either Philip Lewis Clarke or Troy Baker. :|

Whoa, the RiD one? Well, it IS Michael McConnohie, who does have a very cool-sounding authoritative voice. In fact, he was the narrator/Director/the-voice-that-talks-you-through-the-game in Crackdown, which, IMHO, sounds kinda like an Optimus Prime-sounding voice ;) - http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=Az0YZVhKOZs#t=28s
"When there's gold feathers, punch behind you!!"

“Critics who treat 'adult' as a term of approval, instead of as a merely descriptive term, cannot be adult themselves. To be concerned about being grown up, to admire the grown up because it is grown up, to blush at the suspicion of being childish; these things are the marks of childhood and adolescence. And in childhood and adolescence they are, in moderation, healthy symptoms. Young things ought to want to grow. But to carry on into middle life or even into early manhood this concern about being adult is a mark of really arrested development. When I was ten, I read fairy tales in secret and would have been ashamed if I had been found doing so. Now that I am fifty I read them openly. When I became a man I put away childish things, including the fear of childishness and the desire to be very grown up.” -- C.S. Lewis

I found a better one! Same guy, same character even, but in the next game he sounds more Unicron-ish

(He starts talking at about 1:20 and continues through the video. HE especially sounds like Unicron when he says "I will know all that I posses!" and when he says "Now at last I see! Her secret is revealed!" and "DO I take life, or give it?"

Now to continue!

Waspinator - Scott McNeil
Scrapper - Micheal Bell
Kup - John Stephenson
Wreck-Gar - Eric Idle
Wheelie - Tom Kenny
Snarl - Scott McNeil
Swimdle - Fred Willard
Cyclonus - Don Brown
Warpath - Dave Fennoy
Six Shot - Terry Classen
Mirage - Dave Wittenburg
Silverbolt - Scott McNeil
Jetstorm - Brian Drummond
Cliffjumper - Dwayne Rock Johnson
Mixmaster - David Boat
Tracks - Micheal McConnohie
Sparkplus Witwicky - Chris Latta

More later!

YIKES! He indeed sounds like Unicron, including the growling and the part about feasting on the bones. :shock:

He not only sounds like Unicron at times, but at other times he sounds like Alpha Q's green face.

That's Dee Bradley Baker for ya. It's too bad he isn't as well recognized as some other voice actors. He's got a good voice range having done so many recognizable characters. ;)

Best robot voices ever were G1 Cyclonus , G1 Soundwave ,G1 Shockwave , Beast Wars - Megatron, BW Tigatron/Tigerhawk & Beast Wars Vok Aliens voice in the BW Season 1 Finale ...Beast Wars Rampage ....Beast Machines Strika & Obsidian......
..I love the Actress who voices Airachnid in TF Prime along with Cullen & Welker ...Same for how the actor who played Megatron (Beast Wars) now voices Hardshell & how Dreadwing is voiced by the same gentleman who was Tigatron/Tigerhawk......
