    Dont know if this is news to any one but I was browsing random voice actors on IMDB from G1 voice actors and I came across this. (EDIT)

    Why didnt anyone tell me that Cory Burton is doing Shockwaves voice. SCORE!

    Does anyone else feel like we should have more G1 voice actors and I really hope this is true cause I might have just an itty bitty bit of hope. Plus I will laugh when I see BB hit the cop in the movie XD

    But Yes, I would totally like to see more G1 voice actors I posted this thread by mistake too >.<

    IMDB is not reliable, as its user-edited. It probably was a fan engaging in wishful thinking

    Yes, I made a mistake and posted that but I wish we could get more G1 voices. Like for 'Q' or the Red Sports car perhaps.

    G1 voice actors = not essential for success

    Good thing too, though it would be interesting to see Corey back as Shockwave.

    I'd love to see Corey Burton back as Shockwave. His performance and Shockwave in general in Animated pretty much cemented Corey Burton as THE Shockwave with me.

    Though as someone mentioned, Alan Rickman would be a nice choice.

    Corey Burton's Shockwave voice is too good to replace. It's as simple as that.

    Oh yes, if not Burton then Rickman. That would be fantastic.

    I don't mean to rude but did Burton do Shockwave's voice in Transformers Animated as well? If so, I don't really like his voice for the movie franchise. It is a bigger scale and to me his voice is not menacing enough to be Shockwave

    He did Animated Shockwave, yes.

    Personally, I think Doug Bradley would make the perfect Shockwave. You can listen to his voice at this link; he's the one narrating at the beginning of the song.

    David Spade is the TRUE voice of Shockwave.

    Corey Burton, Alan Rickman, and Liam Neeson are my choices for Shockwave.

    Burton does seem like a good bet for Shockwave, having voiced nearly every cartoon version of the character, from G1 to Animated and even that WFC commercial. But... it's not that I DON'T want him for it... I will cheer if he gets the part, honestly, I will, Corey Burton is fucking AWESOME... but... I would LOVE it if David Warner could do Shockwave's voice. Burton based the voice on Warner's in the first place, and Warner's been doing cartoon voiceovers for years now.

    I agree. If they don't bring back Burton, Rickman or even Malcolm McDowell would be the best alternatives.

    I've seen it to on IMBD where Burton is the list to voice Shockwave, until somebody said it will be James Woods.
