    Oh God. Just because some people have problems with the film it doesn't mean we only want G1! I don't like Hugo Weavings Megatron but I do like David Kay and Correy Burtons Megatron along with Frank Welkers G1 Megatron.

    Also, Fred Tatasciores Megatron is OK. while the voice he uses almost identical to Weavings, he does a much better performance and the writer also write WFC Megatron better than the movie writers wrote movie Megaton.

    And i may as well note that Burton is my favorite Megatron.

    I thought Hugo Weaving was one of the single worst choices of all the casting, and that his voice did not suite Megatron at all. And it has nothing to do with wishing Frank Welker did it instead. Fine, don't pick Welker, but pick someone who has something more dynamic to bring than just a boring try-hard angry voice that reeked of Agent Smith. I just thought Weaving sounded too... Weaving. And while there were some things I got used to, his take on Megatron was not one of them. Hated from the first movie right through to the third one.

    If we're talking G1 Welker, then no, Weaving was a much better choice.

    If we're talking Prime Welker however, that's a different story; the man is weaving magic with his lines as Prime Megatron.

    I thought it suited the the movie a lot better than Frank's G1 Megatron voice.

    i really actually loved his voice and thought it matched that particular version of megatron perfectly.

    he's NOT my favorite megatron .. that belongs to animated, beast wars, and Prime: Megatron .. but I deffinately liked him .. then again my opinion is kinda bias because I like hugo weaving alot as an actor.

    I love his Megatron. He doesn't sound like a raspy old man (I mean no offense to anyone), and I think other Megatrons, like ones from the Unicron Trilogy, just sound...not like Megatron should sound. They have boring voices (IMO), being who they are and all. Especially when compared to Movie Megs.

    I do agree that TFP Megatron has a pretty awesome voice, but I still prefer Weaving's overall.

    weaving is the man for Megatron, you could not even recognise Hugo's voice in the first film. welker was possibly the worst megatron voice going. Hugo brings this dark gritty bitter megatron to the table that suits the character perfectly. Weaving I always thought was allot more dynamic than other megatron voices, and megs not only sounded mean but the way he sounded was very cold, that he could not be trusted

    Weaving will do but I can't deny I'd have preferred Welker, even moreso if using his improved TF: Prime Megs voice.

    I was just fine with Hugo Weaving. Not the best Megatron voice, but it was definitely a good choice. It fit the character, to say the least.

    Is it just me, or do I see what you did thar? :p

    I don't mind it. David Kaye is my favorite Megatron voice personally, but I'm not sure if it work well for a more serious movie.

    I loved his voice. I'm a fan of Weaving's and you can just tell he had a BLAST doing this.

    Plus, it was neat to have someone who wasn't (and no offense meant here) just a voice actor lend thier talents to this franchise. That's part of what I've been enjoying about TFP, they aren't just limiting themselves to people who only do voice acting but are casting from a larger pool.

    I loved Hugo Weaving as Megatron. He fit the character in the movies very well and he really impressed me in DOTM with the voice acting. However, I think Corey Burton did the best Megatron voice ever in Animated. He just sounded so evil and he definitely struck me as a cold-blooded killing machine.
