    As I watch Transformers Prime I think that compared to G1 Frank Welker and Transformers Prime Frank Welker the Prime Megatron is way better and more threatening. So I ask, You think you would still prefer HugoWeaving as Megatron in the live action movies or would you want the original actor only with an improved Transformers Prime voice?

    Corey Burton's Megatron is king.

    Hugo Weaving all the way, Changing voice actors is retarded and Frank's voice wouldn't fit Movie Megatron. Too wheezy dying old man.

    For a live-action franchise, I like more the "rampaging beast who wreaks a havoc upon everything on his path"-Megatron [Hugo Weaving] than the "Cool and Unshakeable Emperor of evil"-Megatron [Frank Welker].

    Definitely Hugo. He gives movie Megatron that dark, deadly and charasmatic persona.

    I could careless too be honest Movie megs doesn't do much talking as opposed too attacking. I guess we should keep the megatron voice we already have.

    Weaving, his deep, gutteral growl that still manages to sound intelligent just works too well for this Megatron.

    Burton's Megatron was the best out of both.


    But I went with Weaving. Just so dark and evil...

    I prefer Welkers Megatron. Hugo is a fairly good megatron but welker I feel comes off as more menacing and dangerous.

    ACTUALLY ... this version of Megs COULD be seen as a wheezing old man. He's had the crap kicked out of him for two movies, losing his face in ROTF and actually getting killed in TF1.

    Tough choice. While I like what Hugo Weaving has been able to do as the voice of Megatron Frank Welker just seems a bit more evil and far more calculating so I give the edge to Welker.

    Although the Beast Wars David Kaye Megatron is the best of them all, yes.

    I think this thread is mostly pointless because everyone who likes the movie are not going to say welker.

    Its mostly an unfair speculation because they put weavings voice through a million differant processes but if you listen to his live voice on the extras for the movie he sounds completely stupid.

    If they gave welker the same treatment he would sound a hell of a lot better too.

    For crying out loud people they said orson wells barely could speak as unicron for that role as he was ailing and that track came out amazing after processing. Anyone see my point.??

    I would love to see the more warn veteran voice of welker given treatment versus the super generic HEY IM a BAD guy voice of HUGO

    I have not heard burton's megatron to judge of the 3. But until I do for the time being I go for weavings megatron. There is something very evil powerful and sinister about weaving's megatron. It give's megs this powerful on screen precence. I always found prime's voice can also be darker, and it was more powerful than frank's megatron

    War veteran voice? Dying parrot you mean. If anything Welker's is even more like a generic 80's bad guy cronnie because that's exactly what G1 Megatron was, a generic bad guy cronnie.

    I think we are getting G1 megatron for DOTM, more of a thinker. Who uses others for his own ends

    Welker for President. His new Megatron voice is the best so far. Creepy and menacing at once.

    We are NOT talking about G1 Megatron. Re-read thread title, please.

    Its hard to like a Megatron that has spoken like 3 sentences in the movies total... I dont get movie Megatron, dude is so badass but he gets overloaded by a kid.. Prime rips him a "new one" in 2... I thought that Meg sneaking up on Optimus was just so, unbelievable... I don't give a shit who Optimus was fighting or how worried about Sam he was... Dude is a Autonomys Robotic Organizm, there sensory perception is probably 1,000,000,000,000 times more accute than a human.. I mean you wanna talk live action then they need to get technical in certain areas...

    Its like the Spider-man movies, sometimes Peters spider sense went off...sometimes it didnt... His spider sense isnt random, it doesnt save him from danger every once in awhile...if that were the case peter would of gotten killed by now many times over.
