    I always read Whirl as Norm Macdonald's voice. Megatron I hear as whoever voiced him in the War for Cybertron games. I always have a special sound I hear for Megatron's Fusion Cannon...but I can't find it online. :(  It was a certain sound that was in a game NeverWinter nights, when the paladin Casavir would turn undead. It's impossible to explain, and for some reason, I always hear that sound when Megatron fires his cannon. XD

    I only have one voice headcanon for the IDW cast, and that is Misfire and friends are bogans and I read their lines in the thickest Aussie accent I can muster.

    Whirl sounds like Steven Ogg. There's a lot of situations where Whirl behaves like Trevor from GTA particularly when Cyclonus first discovers him in a bar.

    To be honest, I usually hear their G1 voices if those are well established. Like for Blast Off: Milt Jamin all the way. I love Onslaught and Blast Off with those British (or New England, or whatever they are) accents. FoC Blast Off sounded like some young, brash (American) hotshot but I don't think TAAO Blast Off is. Then again, I can go for new versions too: TFA Swindle had a great voice.

    Some of them are still the same, but on the other hand it's a bit hard not to read some of these characters as the voices in a Transformers audio drama I'm a part of lol.

    I always imagined Whirl sounding like Gary Busey. You know, kind of unhinged sounding.

    Overlord sounds like BW Megatron by David Kaye in my mind.

    Just some key characters:

    Optimus in the modern era - Peter Cullen in his 2007 and later "older" voice.
    Optimus / Orion Pax - G1 Season 1 Optimus voice (the much younger, more energetic one).
    Prowl - William Sadler

    Ratchet - Jeffery Comb's prime voice, with a little of Animated for some reason.
    Drift - Smokescreen's voice from Prime

    Megatron (when in an evil mood) - Frank Welker in his Prime voice
    Megatron (when an Autobot) - G1 S1 Megatron but more somber. Hard to describe.


    Galvatron - Bane from The Dark Knight Rises
    Nova Prime - Alexander Siddig, modulated down.
    Cyclonus - Avery Brooks


    Overlord - 100% Beast Wars Megatron's voice.

    Recently been thinking of Jonny Cruz (Lucio from Overwatch) for Blaster. Considering both have the musical theme going, I think it fits pretty well.

    Okay so I changed Pharma to Tim Curry's Pennywise. I think it fits him well.I also like to have Whirl voiced by Will Arnett (Bojack Horseman).

    I used to read Whirl as John Dimaggio, using his Marcus Fenix voice from the Gears of War games. Mind you, this was when Whirl was a fairly 1-dimensional character and his most noteworthy character moment was beating up Megatron.

    A few issues into MTMTE, the Marcus Fenix voice wasn't working. Too serious. Too badass. Then, for some reason, I started reading his dialogue as John Dimaggio's Bender voice, from Futurama. Unhinged. Without empathy or compassion. Sarcastic. Yeah, I think Bender's voice works quite well.
