    Now that the original voice actor for Wheeljack, Christopher Latta is already dead, who do you think should voice this character in Animated? There are two options: Corey Burton or Thomas Kenny (the one who voice Starscream and Waspinator in the Animated series.

    Tom Kenny.

    It's just a matter of time before he and Jeff Bennet voice everybody in the World.

    While I tend to think it will be Tom Kenny since he does a very nice Starscream he should probably do descent G1 esque Wheeljack well too. I find it interesting that you feel there are only 2 options sure it could be Corey or it could be one of the other main cast VA's or a guest VA depending on what kind of voice they are after for the Animated version of the character.

    No, but considering he's freaking Tom Kenny, every character got a 60% chance of being voiced by him.

    Thomas Kenny due to the fact he is the spiritual successor to Chris Latta

    OR

    Christopher Lloyd (Great spark!)

    He spoke in the Safeguard comic, so it's canon that he speaks.

    Now, if he's going to, is a whole different story!

    I do. Right now.

    (I have no inside info or authority, so that means I must know what I'm talking about! :D  )

    anyway, Wheeljack's G1 voice reminds me a bit of Animated Ratchet, so Corey could probably pull it off well. Animated isn't known for emulating past voice performances though (unless a character name ends in "wave")

    Christopher Lloyd in full "Doc Brown" mode sounds good, if they can't get Jamie Hyneman, that is. ;)

    If he does speak in the cartoon, I think Tom Kenny would work, given that he's basically Chris Latta 2.0, and he's already proven to be able to do a Brooklyn accent (as Scrapper).

    I say Corey Burton, if I had to pick one of the two.
