    List your top 5, any series. Just curious

    1.) Ironhide G1- I'm sorry, but Ironhide IMO is Cullen's best voice, not Prime. I wish in WFC they would have had him do both. It's depressing everytime I hear a Peter Cullen Prime having a conversation with a non-Cullen Ironhide.
    2.) Dinobot BW-Perfect voice for a characrer that started out as evil, then joined the good guys. The fact that he was able to deliver so many serious lines in that voice is a testament to Mr. McNeil.
    3.) Megatron G1-Too many villains in the 80s had the stereotypical "evil" voice, but Welker's Megs sounded like he'd been through millions of years of s**t and could still take you out.
    4.) Soundwave G1-Come on, everyone remembers that voice, so much that all other actors who ahve played a Soundwave still use that vocoder effect.
    5.) Jazz- always like the Transformer who sounded like Hong Kong Phooey


    Yours?

    ^ I don't think the OP is asking for voice artists, more which characters have the best voices.

    My choices go to:

    1. G1/movie/WFC Optimus Prime. Two words - Peter Cullen.

    2. Beast Wars/Beast Machines Megatron. So intelligent and vicious. The range of the character came through beatifully through his melodious and sinister tones.

    3. G1 Starscream. Always copied, never bettered.

    4. G1 Soundwave. The definition of 'iconic'.

    5. Tie between Beast Wars Rattrap and G1 Shockwave. Both very different but just perfectly suited to their characters.

    1) G1 Optimus Prime - Just a commanding presence with some John Wayne thrown in.
    2) BW Megatron - Not just a good villain but a good character too. Yes...
    3) G1 Starscream - You know the voice is good when it becomes the template for all other versions of that character's voice.
    4) Rattrap - Who knew Transformers came from Jersey?
    5) G1 Soundwave - Totally 80s and totally awesome.
    6) G1 Grimlock - Fits that character, both robot and dinosaur, perfectly.

    G1/Movie/WFC Optimus Prime is all time number one in my book.
    G1 Megatron, agree wholeheartedly with D-Unit that the grizzled strain in it makes it both original and unforgettable.
    Movie Ironhide
    Movie Ratchet
    86 Movie Kup
    G1 Perceptor
    86 Movie Ultra Magnus
