    As much as I love Peter Cullen and Frank Welker I believe that it's time for a change. If there's a new series in the next 2-3 years I would like to see Corey Burton possibly return to voicing Megatron but if we possible wanted to see a new actor Id maybe like to see Clancy Brown try his hand at Megatron. Now the really hard choice would be who to voice Optimus. Peter Cullen is pretty much Optimus Prime but as I said there might be a time when someone else might voice Optimus. This one I really can't say. I know Peter can't voice Optimus forever but it's so hard to imagine Optimus to be voice by anyone else. If any of you can think of anyone else let me know because if you ask me, finding a new voice for Optimus Prime is like getting a new puppy when you're old one dies. I mean sure it's a puppy but it's just not the same.

    That'd be great for a Shattered Glass Prime episode.

    Bruce Campbell as Megatron.

    Whoever voiced Liberty Prime in Fallout 3 should be Optimus, unless of course it was Peter Cullen uncredited.

    For Optimus, I'd go with Kevin Conroy (Batman in the DCAU), with a very similar vocal performance. Basically, in terms of voice and demeanor, he's Bat Prime.

    For Megatron, one idea I just had was Crispin Freeman, in a vocal range very similar to what he did for Alucard in Hellsing: a deep rumble filled with madness and sadism, especially when he lets a growl enter the voice.

    Michael Ironside or Corey Burton for Megatron. David Kaye or Tim Daly for Optimus Prime.

    How about Neil Kaplan (RID Prime)? I looked up an episode of RID on Youtube (having never seen the series before), and all I could think was "Yep, that's Optimus".

    Time for a change? Over the years, 80% of the time someone other than Cullen and Welker does the voices. We just got them back and you want them gone?

    Clancy Brown Megatron is a longtime dream of mine. All for it. Although I really wouldn't mind Corey Burton returning to deliver a similar Megatron performance to his work on TFA Megatron. I'm fine with Cullen as Prime, although Michael Ironside would be a nice choice.

    Crispin Freeman was one of my suggestions for LSOTW Overlord.

    I've been saying it for like five years now, but I'd really like to hear Keith David voice Prime.

    i think given a good script and a distinct lack of "make sure you fit all these words in this brief period of time" anime dubbing, Kaplan wouldnt be too bad!

    Nachsider: That works very well; I like it. I also like your idea of Michael Ironside as Optimus and Clancy Brown as Megatron. We almost had the latter with TFPrime; oh, well, Silas is cool anyhow.

    Maverick Hunter Christian: Another great idea; Keith David is a hell of an actor, and hearing his performance as Optimus would be great, if the writers and director allow him to emote.

    Id quite like Christopher Robin Sabat (vioce of Garland from Dissidia Final Fantasy) to play the roll of Megatron.

    As for Optimus? I don't really know.
