    Which Transformer character do you guys think the late Tony Jay could've done the voices of?

    I would say hands down Unicron! Tony would've been perfect as Unicron. He did the voices of so many similar characters it was a shame that Tony never got to do his voice too.

    I think Soundwave would've been good too (if not Frank). As well as Cyclonus and perhaps Scourge. As well as a Quintesson or two. :) 

    Anyone else?

    While Tony Jay will always be Megabyte to me, I'd be lying if I said that I wouldn't have loved to hear him as Cylonus, Scourge, or even Unicron.


    At any rate, I'd probably wet my pants if I ever heard him refer to Ratchet as "good doctor", regardless of who it came from. :)

    Someone should like, take a bunch of voice clips from his existing work and make a TF compilation with one of the suggested characters. :) 

    Heck, most of it could probably come out of Reboot.

    He'll always sound like Chairface Chippendale to me.

    I think he would've made a great Unicron.

    I'd nominate him for Movie Shockwave for David Warner.

    THat's what I was telling you guys about the thing with Roger Ebert. If we can make a machine that has his voice recorded on it like the one Roger Ebert has by recording all the voice clips he's done, then we can use that to do the talking for him since he's no longer with us.

    Man, Tony Jay was always a badass. Especially as Frollo.

    Tony Jay could be a Unicron, but I have my reserves about that for some unknown reason.

    He could be Animated Cyclonus, maybe an elderly character, like Alpha Trion or DOTM Sentinel Prime.

    I could see Tony Jay being Animated Ratchet, though it'd require an extensive redesign to fit Tony Jay's voice. Tony Jay would be like the Ed Asner/Hudson of Gargoyles.

    Not the concept, but have Tony Jay talking AFTER his demise.

    That's brillant and creepy at the same time, congratulations.

    Definitely Unicron. Although, he did voice a famous planet-eater in another cartoon.

    I think we should do this with Chris Latta.
