    It'd be awesome if they got Frank Welker. Ya know just have him do tons of voices of many of the Autobots and Decepticons like in the cartoon. Somehow I doubt that'll happen.

    HERE'S TO HOPE!!

    :drunk  :rock :music 

    See...it's a smiley party for hope.

    FRANK DUH!!!!

    Im not even giving a second option because im that adamant. Keeping these voices close to the G1 characters really goes a long way for me and that could heal alot of wounds.

    I think Patrick Stewart would be a good choice.

    Sean Connery!!!!!!!! FTW.

    No seriously wasn't there a rumor or fabrication that Frank got a package in the mail from Paramount? How anyone could have possibly found this out is a whooper itself. But that would be cool and solidify my hopes that it is FW.

    it has to be frank, anyone else and it wouldnt be fair imo....not fair to us, but fair to him, he deserves the roll....he was a huge part as to why this movie is even being made, if it wasnt for his voices on the show, the show would not have done as well imo

    Frank Welker. Maybe it will not happen, but hey as long as hope is free I'll hold out a bit of hope. The Prime voice is one of the things I liked best about the first movie so chances are really good I'd get that "oh smegging cool" feeling out of Soundwave if they went with Welker and the old voice.

    Welker. If the voice is going to remain 'so distorted that you can't even recognize it', then it's a win/win just to give it to Welker.

    But for the record, I will say that I have never agreed that anyone can do Soundwave's voice. Between the tons of parodies & tributes found online or through various TV shows, along with the Animated version, I have yet to hear anyone successfully pull it off the way he sounded in G1. And imo, that's because of Welker's back-end vocal ability - not just because of the FX used to process the voice.

    I'd have to say that Welker would be the best choice. Bennet does a decent G1 Soundwave voice, but lacks the feel of Welker's Soundwave.
    Though I suppose if all else fails, Curtis Jackson could definitely pull off an awesome Soundwave voice.

    As much as I'd love Welker to get it, I'd say many people can do that voice. I think that my own attempt was pretty close:

    Definitely Frank Welker. He deserves just as much of a role in the film franchise as Peter Cullen does.

    Something I'd like to know is why some people insist anyone can voice Soundwave because with the vocoder it makes no difference, yet almost all the attempts at imitating the G1 Soundwave voice have come off much different, as well as nearly inaudible in some cases.

    Frank Welker, seriously. As respect to him, and because his version of Soundwave is still the best.
