    So as you heard in the first trailer.... Megatron is not getting voiced by Frank welker instead we have the voice actor who did Grindor in the ROTF game...
    Anyone know why Frank isn't doing it or if that was just the trailer but he will be in the real game?

    I thought I heard something somewhere (it may have come from the wikipedia people) but I thought something said that said he was doing the animal sounds for Trypticon

    Oh yeah, Soundwave would be awesome.

    But then again, the vocoder would make it not matter.

    True, but still.... Frank deserves it.... He truly know how to be Soundwave more then anyone... But he deserves Megatron then any voice actor out there because well.... He was the first to do Megatron's voice.... And its just a amazing voice.

    What has Grindor's voice actor done, nothing that can match to what Frank has done all these years!

    Could be he was busy, or they wanted to go in a different direction for the character.

    I love Frank Welker and would love to see him included in WfC. That said... I don't want that inclusion to be as Megatron. Listening to him in the previous TF games, his Megatron just doesn't sound nearly as imposing as it once did.

    I kind of like the voice in the WfC reveal trailer, because it almost sounds like a cross between G1 Megatron and BW Megatron, though it's hard to tell how good it will be from just a few lines.

    Frank's Megatron voice hasn't aged well.

    Ditto to the "Welker's voice isn't up to snuff" comments.

    Listen to his voicework in the RotF game. Starscream sounds way more imposing then Megatron does there.

    That said, it doesn't mean he can voice others. He still has great range. Right now though, I think it's best he lay his Megatron voice to rest.

    Honestly? I think his Megs voice in the last two movie games was kinda painful to listen to. I mean it was great back then, but it hasn't aged well. At all.

    I don't want him to stop tho.... =-(
    He is one of the kind.... No one can match him.
    It's hard to find anyone with that type of voice.... I'm lucky I did found someone but still, he is one of a kind and I know this is not the last time we will hear his Megatron voice.... If he doesn't make this game then I know he will do it in something elses.

    Dude.....let it go.

    You can't keep doing the same thing forever. Especially in voice acting. It's just how it is.

    You know what, who cares.... Its still Megatron none the less...
    And if they want to get another Megatron at least get one that sounds almost the same at least.

    Agreed. His voice physically hurt me in the ROTF game, and yet movie Soundwave sounded so cool. He can still do voices, just not Meagtron's.

    Frank Welkner did a pretty good job in g1, but he just doesn't do the character justice anymore....David Kayne did an amazing megatron in BW, but my fave voice for megatron wasn Corey Burton....MOTHER OF GAWD WAS THAT AN AWESOME MEGATRON VOICE......absolutely perfection for the character.....i want Corey to do megatron for now on, which sadly probably won't happen.....Frank should just retire the voice, it hasn't aged well

    I like Frank Welker, but I don't think he's no longer able to voice Megatron like he did back in the G1 cartoon. His voicing Megatron in the Movie-verse games didn't really sound all that great.

    I don't mind if he does other character voices in the games, though.

    Its hard to admit for me but all you people are right... =-\

    But rather have Frank doing it instead of this new voice for Megatron.
