    "FW: I think first, physically when you look at Megatron, he’s quite a bit different: he doesn’t have the gun on his arm like he did in G1 and now he’s a jet fighter and he’s a little bit different in the Prime series [in that] he has a slightly different look, but when you look at him you go, “Oh yeah, that’s Megatron!”"


    Anyone else get the slight feeling that for all his apparent enthusiasm about Megatron, Welker isn't really that aware of what's been done with Megatron over the years?

    I guess nobody told him Megatron has a cannon on his arm.

    It just dawned on me that between the kids and I we watch every show he is currently working on. That new Scooby Doo cartoon has been one of the best incarnations ever.

    Anyone else get the feeling that the interviewer didn't really know what he's talking out?

    Since the article claimed he voiced Megs in War for Cybertron, I take any bit of "news" as incorrect.

    This interview just reminds us that Welker's such a talented professional. His range of vocal sounds is astounding and he's always trying to create unique voices. He definitely knows how to carve his niche in the VO world.

    Glad to hear also that the dialogue in the Prime series is giving him the opportunity to flex his Megatron vocal muscles along a greater range. I think most of us can agree that what he's done with Prime Megatron's voice is stellar!

    Yeah. I used to watch Scooby-Doo as a kid but never got into the newer ones. But this current series is very engaging. Frank Welker is a magnificent actor.

    I wish this was an audio interview rather than written.
