    Personally, I really like Hugo Weaving's voice of Megatron. To me, it sounds the most badass, intimidating, large and in charge. Plus, Hugo can pull off the sarcastic tone very well.

    Would have been nice to distinguish G1 Welker from Prime Welker. I realize it's the same person, but the voices and performances are so different that I feel they warrant separate options in the poll.

    I'd say tie between TFP-Welker [he was far too stretchy on G1] and Hugo Weaving.

    I'll go with Weaving because Welker is already a GOD in every single damn thing possible.

    What about Corey Burton or the guy who voiced Megatron in RiD?

    It would be really hard not to call Frank Welker the best voice actor of all time. Easy choice.

    I now realize I also forgot the guy who voices Megatron in WFC. Sorry about that.

    Welker. But Burton was damn good in Animated.

    What overly limited choices.

    Daniel Riordan
    Corey Burton
    and Fred Tatasciore

    All left off.

    I think it depends on the Megatron as well. Corey Burton's voice for an intellectual Animated Megatron was perfect, while Fred Tatasciore's was perfect for a gladiator turned philosopher in WFC, and Frank Welkers gravely voice Megatron was perfect for G1's cartoon thug leader.

    I love Welker but he's no Corey Burton. Also Weaving is a great actor but as Megatron...no.

    I voted for Welker, solely because of Prime, but as a kid of the nineties Kaye's voice will always be the one I hear when I read a Transformers book or comic.

    Out of the limited choices, I have to go with David Kaye on this one.

    He's VA'd for 5 incarnations of Megatron which itself as far as I know is only shared alongside Gary Chalk for voicing the same amount of Prime's even though 2 of them were Primal's.

    He also did a pretty darn good young Prime in Animated. It almost sounds like a younger Peter Cullen Prime.

    Tie between Welker and Kaye, both were very unique.

    Corey Burton > all. Except David Kaye, with whom he's tied in my book.

    Corey Burton's voice is pure gold.

    Going to go with David Kaye on this one, yesssssss.

    Too bad Corey Burton's not in the list. He did a really sinister Megatron in Animated.

    Actually, come to think of it, most Megatron voice actors are pretty awesome.
