    Nice interview.
    Megs voice "You either like the voice or hate it, but, you're gonna turn around when you hear it." Pure gold :) 

    I got the game today for PSP, it's great to hear him in the game, too bad he didn't make the movie. Well, perhaps for 2 and 3?

    I like his new megatron voice (at the very, very end) more than his old one. its totally unique.

    Those scenes were awesome! But just listening to Frank and his Megatron depresses me.

    Love Frank, he's an awesome guy, it seems.

    Love his G1 Megatron.

    But hearing it and seeing movie Megatron... I dunno, I'll have to see it in action, but from that little bit, it didn't feel like it fit...

    Yeah, I don't know if the voice is quite right for movie Megs...Welker is a GOD amongst the voice artists...but I don't know if it is the right fit...I can't wait to hear Weaving's take on the voice.

    Note (and MAJOR SPOILER, READ AT YOUR OWN RISK)Did anyone else notice what seemed to be Megatron joining the Allspark with his own? This ties into my theory that Megatron always intended to do this and that his "death" may be very fleeting...

    So maybe Bay and co. were right when they said that Welker's Megs didn't fit the new Megs.

    What I want to know is why he is in the video game version of the movie but NOT the movie itself.... was this ever explained?

    Same reason Keith David does Barricade in the game and not the movie?

    And what would that be? They are not strong enough voices for a big screen adaptation?

    In Megatron's case, I think it's because they wanted a "name" for Megs.

    I have no idea -_-

    Though I really do wish they held their roles for the movie.

    Keith David would be so awesome as Barricade.

    ya i got sad when i heard him do that voice as it sounded like megatron. I just dont know what people are smoking these days the thing that made megatron so popular all these years were those qualities welker put into that voice.

    I dont think its fitting to just get any voice long as it sounds evil or methodical cause that is not what makes megatron himself. Its like frank said there is some quality of pain and understanding of hurt that makes him like that.

    My only glimmer of hope is that Weaving was being honest when he said his megatron honors welkers version.

    I somewhat agree with this statement, but if you go back to the first Activition preview with both Peter Cullen and Welker talking about Transformers you can hear Mr. Welker’s Megatron toward the end—Diiiiiiiiie, Autobot—and it sounds a bit different, like some sound studio got a hold of it and tweaked it. Assuming Megatron sounds a bit more like that, I may like it more, but hearing it as is, yeah, it does sound a bit…strange.

    Nevertheless, I’m sure it’s a voice that can grow on you;)  I’ve met lots of people who have voice I never could have imagined coming out of their mouths.

    They haven't added the effects yet... plus that was camera audio from inside a recording booth.

    It wasn't processed yet.

    I'm pretty sure a lot of those G1 voices were pitched down or up in post-production.
