:shock: Wow, you went through the Voice Compare and picked all those? Yikes! I didn't expect such a large amount all at once (mostly just few at a time is what I was anticipating). Kudos to all of that, man. 8-)

Easy picks: Optimus (Cullen), Shockwave (Burton)
HARDEST CHOICE ON LIST: Megatron... Megatron has so many good voice actors, but I have to go with these for top 5:

Welker for G1, Burton for Animated, Tatasciore for WFC, Weaving for Bayformers, and Kaye (Energon and BW) in that order from 1st to 5th. Devall was decent for Cybertron, but Kaye wins for Energon voice!

I love Frank Welker Soundwave, after I first got the G1 Movie I looked up more clips just to listen to him,
and I think Singleton's sounds good.

Bennett under the Soundwave effect makes a great TF voice but probably for another character.

Always thought the original Megatron was good but should be louder with the same effect.

I have never heard Starscream done the way I imagine him.

I like Tatasciore as Omega but I couldn't hear it clearly enough so I'm going to run it later tonight without any background noise.


Ironhide I liked listening to Szarabajka

Warpath i think Price

Gee I do like Wittenberg for Mirage

Carmel Bruticus works

I liked the Norris video game Red Alert clip

There are some characters I don't know enough about to have an idea what voice would seem best.
Last night I got on the side scroll 'where do you want to go next' part and never saw the full size of the page.

By the way, have you guys noticed that most voice examples with the original voice-actors are from the 86 movie? :smile:
And then I heard Jazz' voice clip from the movie I actually waited to hear "This is Jazz. A ginourmous weird-looking planet just showed up in the orbit of Cybertron." (I think I got the line correct), but it cut short right before that. :P

I guess it's because is one of (if not the) most memorable parts of the G1 cartoon.
