    Hi!

    Thank you so much for doing these interviews! :D 

    Here are my questions:

    Would he be willing to return to playing in a Transformers series?

    Does he have any fond memories from the recording of Robots in Disguise that he would like to share?

    Would he be willing to participate in a re-union episode featuring the all the voice-actors who've played Optimus and Megatron over the years for an anniversary, special, ect?

    Which does he find more interesting to portray: heroes, or villains?

    Are there any genres he particularly enjoys voice acting in? Action, Science Fiction, Fantasy, Western, Mystery, Ect?

    Are there any upcoming projects he's working on that he'd like us to know about?

    What's his favorite part about being a voice actor?

    Is there any Transformer character you would've preferred to voice?

    Did you audition for any other character? If so, which one(s)?

    Is there any voice actor that you enjoyed working with most while recording?

    Alright! I always wanted to ask Niel a few questions and now I get a chance? WOO HOO!

    1. This is not so much a question, but a Thank you. Robots in Disguise is what introduced me to Transformers and your Optimus Prime is definitely one of my favourites since he is my first.

    2. Do you happen to own any merchandise from Robots in Disguise or any other Transformers series?

    3. Have you ever watched any episodes you portrayed as Optimus in? If so which one was your favourite? (If you cant remember the episode name you can try to remember what was in it)

    4. Compared to The original Optimus Prime, do you think Robots in Disguise Optimus was more violent?

    5. Since you can do a pretty good Optimus prime voice, have you tried to do a version of Megatron close to the original or in your own style?

    6. Were there any incidents while voicing for Robots in Disguise like a funny line mess-up or anything similar? If so can you tell us?

    Once again, Thank you Niel for everything you have done for the Transformers community and your superb work. Have a good one!
