    Well, his Cybertronian at least. His english was obviously Welker's Soundwave voice.

    But if you listen to his Cybertronian where he's berating the Protoforms (it sounds vaguely like "DONT YOU SEE THE SNIPERS?!), and compare it to his Cybertronian battle cries from when he fought Bumblebee, they sound exactly the same voice.

    Compare DOTM...

    Transformers Dark of the Moon : Allies VS Decepticons and Shockwave (1080p/HD) - YouTube
    (the first few seconds of him speaking)

    against TF1

    Transformers: Bumblebee VS Barricade (1080p/HD) - YouTube
    (skip to about :45)

    Hey Mods, if linking the scenes isn't allowed for some reason, feel free to remove the links

    Yeah, that's definatly Harnell saying the lines about the sniper and the boots ". (what?) But at the same time, I'm hearing John DiMaggio. I'm jut thinking of his RoTF Sideways lines, and they sound familiar.


    I don't get why they didn't have him do the supposed Soundwave lines instead of Welker.

    RoTF the game. John did his voice there.

    And he supposedly talks in TF: The Ride, again voiced by DiMaggio.

    Sideways lines? I don't know what movie you were watching, but it sure as hell wasn't RotF.

    And I'm sure they could of altered anyone's voice to speak Cybertronian gibberish. It could be Harnell, it probably is, but anyone could of done that.

    No, I was referring to how in the scene before, he was speaking with Soundwave's growly voice.

    You gotta love Barricade taking charge.

    Very interesting that Frank Welker does his basic speaking voice but Jess does the cybertronian speaking. Curious as to why Jess just didn't do all of the speaking for Barricade.

    Maybe he was a late addition to the film.

    They do sound similar, yes. But then again, I can also here the similarities between the proposed Harnell sniper-line and Welker's traditional growling effects.

    It's scenes like this that make me wish DotM either

    a.) had more identifiable English lines from the vague growlings of the 'Cons
    or
    b.) continued with the 'Cybertronian subtitles' that Transformers and RotF had.

    That way things like "Driller-bot is thirsty", "Remember me?", "Give up?"/"Can't go home" could be put to rest.

    My headcanon is that Barricade said "Remember me?" in Cybertronian.

    The "Remember me?" line was clear as day when Barricade leaned in to say that to Bumblebee. Not Cybertronian.

    I kind of had to squint my ears.

    Whatever, I still like to believe he said it in some language.

    Could somebody post a video of him saying that? Every time I watch Dark of the Moon I try to catch it but I never hear anything... :(

    See this is one of Garry Chalk's many complains about the Michael Bay transformers films.

    You Can't tell what these robots are saying.

    You can hear it perfectly. You just can't understand it, because they're not speaking english.

    Directed to Garry: "You mean the inconsequential bit part cameo Decepticon #11 speaking random Cybertronian gibberish is difficult to understand? I know, right? Totally ruins the movie and the abundance of potential that his character had. Man, it sucks that Optimus, Megatron, Starscream, Sentinel, Jetfire, The Fallen, Skids & Mudflap, the Arcees, Soundwave, Ironhide, Laserbeak, Ratchet, Jazz, Que, Sideswipe, Dino, Barricade (first movie), Leadfoot, Roadbuster, Brains and Wheelie suffered from the same symptoms."
