    Soundwave
    Devastator
    Shockwave
    Megatron in Video Games.

    We all know Frank Welker as a great voice actor (one of the originals in the G1 cartoon) who has voiced Megatron, Soundwave, Frenzy etc., but now they have him in the movie voicing Soundwave, Devastator and Shockwave. Even Megatron in the movie video game. Which do you think is his best work in the movie/ movie video game?

    Soundwave.

    Shockwave's voice just didn't match his look in my opinion.

    It sure as hell didn't match Megatron in the RoTF game. Way too high-pitched and raspy. I know some Transformers have been shown smoking but damn!

    Devastator was spot on. Didn't expect much from a dumb lumbering behemoth other than it acting and sounding like a dumb lumbering behemoth.

    Compared to his other stellar work on the franchise, I hate to say it, but Welker's movie work is pretty forgettable.

    Yep because it's still Frank Welker voicing him.

    Soundwave in the DOTM game, the slight pauses are just creepy. I think it's a lot better than the vocoded voice. It makes me think evil Robocop. Actually, Soundwave all around makes me think of evil Robocop.

    His work on Soundwave's voice is the best of a lackluster bunch of roles.

    I am one of the few defenders of Soundwave's Dr.Claw-esque voice, I think it makes him sound like the "Omnious Right-Hand Man", that kind of guy that even the Decepticons fear, that guy whose voice makes everyone's soul chill due sheer fear, not just enemies, but everyone.

    Movie-verse Soundwave someone that is completely devoid of any shade of humanity, he is like a Eldritch Abomination.

    So, obviously, Soundwave's sinister voice is my pick.

    To hear this Megatron compared to the G1 series... I am glad they didn't use Welker to voice him. Just my $.02

    Soundwave. The rest were forgettable in comparison.

    Soundwave, only because I can imitate the Dr. Claw voice to perfection. :D

    I agree. I have a really hard time mentally matching Soundwave's G1 vocoder-effect voice to his Movie incarnation. The Claw voice fits better, MO.

    Welker's other voice work in the Movies has been largely unrecognizable or ineffective to me, though...but I do love his TF: PRIME Megatron voice, though.
