    If the Shattered Glass storyline would be animated, what would the character's voices sound like?

    Optimus Prime: Probably would sound a bit like G1 Megatron or a higher-pitched "Normal Optimus", and would yell a lot like G1 Megs.

    Grimlock: Either a fancy British accent or Arnold Schwarzenegger, from the looks of TF Mosaic: Shattered Future.

    Ratchet: Possibly like Scalpel from ROTF, including accent.

    Rodimus: TFA Lockdown-ish


    Megatron: Maybe his voice will sound like TFA Optimus, since David Kaye was a Megatron voice actor before.

    That's all I can think of. Know what the others would sound like?

    Well, a lot of them have their voices described on the wiki. For instance. Optimus is supposed to sound like Venger from the D&D cartoon (also voiced by Peter Cullen), and Rodimus is supposed to sound like John Travolta's character from Welcome Back Kotter.

    I could see SG Optimus sounding similar to Corey Burton's Animated Megatron. Sort of a creepy, calm, yet menacing quality to his voice.

    I'd say Optimus would sound good with Armada Megatron's voice. As for Megatron, he could be like Animated Optimus.

    I always thought the SG voices would be the same, only changes in tones and the mentalites behind them. Wouldn't if be funny if SG Rodimus (Prime) sounded like Rodimus Prime only dumber. (If that can be imagined) :lol

    Keith David would probably sound awesome as SG Hot Rod/Rodimus.

    David Kaye doing his TFA Optimus Prime for SG Megatron would be epic. Not quite sure who'd sound awesome enough to voice SG Optimus Prime.

    I like this specific one, because I dig the idea that they'd be done by the same actors as their G1 counterparts, but that they'd just use a different character voice. But of course, that might mean that Megatron would sound like Fred from Scooby Doo, and I'm not sure how I'd feel about that...

    SG Megatron would probably be more in line with Frank's portrayal of Nibbler in Futurama. When he speaks in Englsih, that is.
