    If you were one of the people who hated Soundwave because he sounded to much like Dr. Claw how do you deal with Optimus and Eeyore sounding exactly the same?

    Cullen's been doing that character for 20 years. Do you see a melancholy donkey in your head everytime Prime talks. If not then how come you cant do that with soundwave and doctor claw?

    Also if Disney can cave Cullen doing eyeore in a preschool show why cant we have him in the new transformers series. Does Disney pay top dollar or what?

    I didn't hate Soundwave because of that, I did note that it was straight up Dr. Claw. Also, playing the game and listening to him with the vocoder sounded great. As far as Optimus goes, I didn't hear Eeyore one bit, and Eeyore was my favorite character. I heard Prime. The difference being, is that Soundwave didn't straight up use the raspy low toned voice. It was altered. Again, I didn't have a problem with the fact he did that voice.

    Soundwave's voice is SO annoying in the game. I really wish they had just asked Frank to do his lines in the booth while he did Megs. It just annoyed me and I don't know why.


    And I think the reason most people don't link Optimus to Eeyore is because they liked Optimus' voice, but because they didn't like Soundwave's they have to compare it to something most peopel might look at negatively to try and support their opinion as more factual than those who do like the voice.

    I think with Voice Actors, at least a couple of characters that they do are going to have the same voice..

    Yeah. I remember that Welker's used his Fred from Scooby-Doo voice on at least 10 different characters in his body of work.

    About Eeyore/Prime: Because that is, technically, the same voice, yes, but the acting and inflection makes it very different.

    I think it would be hilarious if Michael Bay and co. decided to NOT vocode Soundwave's voice just to see the reaction of the bitching fanboys xD :lol

    Soundwave does sound more like Dr. Claw that OP does the "depressed donkey". I don't care about the voice. I though it better fit the movie Soundwave.

    Peter Cullen is not going to be the voice of Optimus Prime forever.

    Go on about what? Which of the threads you posted has discussion about people hearing familiar voices in movie characters aside from Soundwave?

    Obviously. However he has played Eeyore in almost every role since 1989. Thats my point. Whats his draw to Eeyore that isn't there for Prime. I would think as the originator of all things prime there would be more appeal there as an artist.

    Isn't this thread 6 months late and already done to death from the opposite direction?

    Also Prime really doesn't sound all that similar to Eeyore:

    Why is it being assumed that Cullen has turned down chances to voice other incarnations of Optimus?? Isn't it possible those gigs just weren't offered to Mr. C?

    I honestly won't lie, I didn't hear Dr. Claw, I didn't hear Soundwave, I heard Frank Welker, and I was happy.

    Maybe he wanted others to have a chance to voice him?
