    He didn't appear in any of the cartoons, Torque. But I hope that will soon change.

    As far as I know that would be a negative. The Pretenders weren't even in the US cartoon and I don't remember Bludgeon being part of the Japanese version.

    No problem. :) 

    Someone from this site (I forget who) once suggested that Bludgeon's voice should be similar to that of General Grievous from the Clone Wars cartoon. Personally, I think that's an excellent suggestion.

    Personally, I would love Ron Perlman as Bludgeon, using a voice similar to Slade from Teen Titans. Calm, manipulative and ruthless.

    In in terms of sound style yes that base sound is about right, but I wouldn't forget Bludgeon is sort of a martial artist, so that base sounding voice is fine but he should have a sort of Mr. Miyagi kind of quality to him...learned, smart calculated.

    I might even say a cross between Dooku, Miyagi, and Grievous.

    Bludgeon should have a Japanese accent over the Grevious voice, too. Just read this line in a Japanese Grevious' voice:

    "Prattling fool! Your warrior heart is tainted by an idiot's tongue! Perhaps I shall remove both for you!"

    Funny you should mention Miyagi. My fanmade TFA Bludgeon (whom I roleplay as on another site) is Yoketron's opposite number and former rival, a grizzled veteran who plays the role of combat trainer to the Decepticons. A sensei, if you will. I'd have Kevin Conroy voice him in the vein of elderly Bruce Wayne from Batman Beyond, but I didn't put forward this suggestion initially because unlike 'my' Bludgeon, 'canon' Bludgeon seems fairly young.

    That was my suggestion. John DiMaggio, not Matthew Wood.

    I hope Bludgeon is animated next series.

    Hmmm. Great question. I'm trying to think how he sounds in my head but can't really explain it.

    My advice would be to read the last 20 issues of Marvels comic series and IDW's Stormbringer series. Feel out his attitude and demeanor and create that voice!

    I want him to sound like Akio Ōtsuka (Japanese voice for Solid Snake), but speaking in English.

    Bludgeon should sound like a pirate. Geoffrey Rush in Pirates of the Caribbean, perhaps.

    Reading through old Marvel Comic dialogue, I love the idea of a Japan warlord's voice with Grievous-type effects to it.
