    Admit it, you love this guy: He's voiced by Clancy Brown, he kicks ass, he is the leader of a massive terrorist organization, and never leaves the enemy with the spoils :bay 

    He also always escapes winning something, ALWAYS.

    Best human. villain. ever

    MECH and NEST are the best human interactions with the Transformers.

    Actually, I like other lines most.

    "I am Silas. But of greater consequence to you ... we ... are MECH."

    "Special agent Fowler, are you leading a charming life, walking amongst titans?"

    "What makes you think we want to sell it, Agent Fowler?"

    and my fave:

    "There's a war brewing ... between the New World Order ... and the Newest. The victor ... will be decided by the most innovative technology. (grins)"

    Agreed, the voice is awesome...scary and don't F with me kind of voice. :D 


    Love the titans line the best...I think he said it more as a statement tho, he said "Special Agent Fowler...YOU lead lead a charmed life..walking among titans!!"

    (Just checked the "Convoy" ep to be sure, and that's a quote!) :thumb

    I think his scars might be explained, probably caused by some fight he entered [as he is a field-agent, this kind of thing is bound to happen].

    An awesome to way to explain it would be to say that Jack's missing father caused said scars.

    I agree. I don't mind a little bit of MECH. But for me, they've got to be secondary to the Decepticons.

    Think they already have...so many of the TFP VA's are also on GI Joe, it gets freaky hearing their voices out of other characters..and not robot ones either. :D 
    Of course, that's happening with Thundercats and Voltron (Garry Chalk) too.

    English is not my native language, and the radio filter in that part kind of confuses me. That's why I wasn't 100% accurate.

    Had a same problem in episode 23. When Ratchet tells June about Raf, she turns to him and says "If I don't stabilize that boy now, HE will not leave this table alive, do you understand me?" In the beginning I thought she said "If I don't stabilize that boy now, HE will not be destabilized alive, do you understand me?" and I was ... "huh"?

    Aha!! Yeah, even when English is your 1st language, sometimes you have to rewind or cheat with closed captioning (CC) to understand the VA's clearly. I do that all the time because, sometimes, I'm not always certain what they said either. :) 
    That's a good example because she was rushed and the words did run together a bit.

    M.E.C.H. is the best human interraction with the transformers yet, they aren't goofy like the animated villains and take things seriously, in every episode they have never actually lost. every episode they have gained an advantage of some sort and silas is just so damn cool, he's honestly like a human B.W. megatron, cold calculating and successful

    Which is why Optimus has Silas on his top 5 "to do" list.

    Indeed. Something tells me that MECH will take a loooOOOOong time to suffer from villain decay. Plus, they seem to use Xanatos Gambit quite a lot, in a way.
