    i am talking about victor caroli, who narrated the 86 movie. i liked his voice work in the movie and the show.
    do you think that he would be a great voice to have in more TF projects?
    i am not sure he is in WfC, but it would have been great for him to help narrate between chapters there.

    i just wish he had a spot in TF:p rime as either just narrator or a decepticon.

    anyone else like this guy?

    Yeah! To me, his voice is synonymous with the Transformers franchise. He should do all TF voiceovers. Obviously Cullen's Prime in the movies works because it's actually his character speaking, but for everything else, it should be Caroli IMO.

    "It is the year 2005..." Awesome :cool:

    Can't find anything to confirm or deny this. Sorry Vic!

    Yeah! I was just going to ask if he was the guy who said that line among everything else.

    I always wondered who he is, to check if he's still alive. Because theeeen, he should narrate newer stuff as well! :D

    On his website, if you just google his name, he seems not so dead.

    I just love the way he says "the maniacal Megatron" in the (UK only?) opening to TF:TM.

    I always liked how he said "The Rebirth" in the Headmasters episodes. He enunciated it with such gusto. :D

    "The Transformers - RRRRREbirth!"

    It doesn't hold a candle to the Rodimus Prime commercial. "Nobody takes on the Decepticons like RRRRRRRRRRRRODIMUS PRIME!" :)

    His imdb page is disturbingly short. According to it, the 80s Transformers cartoon was the last work he did.

    I think they should get the guy that does the opening of Dragon Ball Z-The American version.
    'What happens next? You'll have to wait for the next exciting episode of dragon ball zzzzzzzzzzzzz!'

    He's not dead. He narrates "Extreme Forensics" on the Investigation Discovery Channel

    He's done a lot more, including the aformentioned Extreme Forensics show (current) as well as the commercials for Monday Night Raw and some hot wheels commercials.

    That'd be really neat if he did some of the narration for War for Cybertron.

    I found it hard to believe he hadn't done anything else. I don't know if imdb credits commercial work, but they should definitely list his Extreme Forensics work.

    Based on the sound clips we heard a while back, I'm fairly sure the narrator for the game is Steve Blum, doing his best Victor Caroli impression.

    He totally needs to do more work for Transformers. The show without his narration is like going to Disneyland and not hearing the guy who says "Remain seated please, Permanecer sentados por favor".

    Yeah, his voice is great. I want him as a high ranking Decepticon in Transformers Prime please.

    i love the entire opening narration for the UK version of the 86 movie.

    it just disturbs me to know that the "voice" did a Huggies commercial.
    *shudders*
    lol
