    2 questions

    will they ever bring shockwaves character into transformers prime

    and who should voice the one eyed decepticon cyclops?

    when it comes to shockwave's character as he has been portrayed over the years he values above all else logic, knowledge and wisdome.

    it is the core of his very being it is what determines his every action and decision in life. while at the same time he exercises a extreme degree of control over his emotions and more so violent urges as a decepticon at the same time.

    in his way the guy comes across as being very much the vulcan among his fellow cybertronians

    i have given it some bit of thought over time and when it comes to voice actors
    who better to voice this evil bearded decepticon spock then spock himself?

    i beleive that leonard neemoy would be uniquely suited and quite perfect for the role of shockwaves character in transformers prime

    No way they could afford him.

    How expensive is David Warner these days?

    I wouldn't be surprised if they brought him in at some point, but it'd most likely be later on. As for the voice, Corey Burton is the obvious choice.

    Yeah... I seriously doubt they could get Nimoy to voice a character in an animated Transformers show.

    Too bad he's pretty much done voicing Shockwave.

    Really? I thought the only reason he declined Shockwave for DOTM was because he didn't want to be involved with the big movie business.

    David Warner or Corey Burton.

    Or maybe...Jeremy Irons?

    I know, I know, Mr.Irons too expensive but...IT'S JEREMY FREAKING IRONS, MAN!

    Ovbiously Burton.

    It seems like he only likes voicing in cartoons. Seeing how he doesn't want to voice in the Baymovies.

    I really don't see Leonard Nimoy happening. Apparently the only real reason they got him for DOTM is because he's married into Bay's family.

    David Warner would be a neat surprise. Especially since he was the guy who Corey apparently based the original vocie on.

    Nimoy won't happen..I don't think he cares (or has to) about working that hard anymore.

    Corey Burton would be a great choice, if he's interested. If not..Why not Steve Blum, he was Shockwave in WFC? Not a gamer myself, but did you guys like his work in WFC?
    Plus it wouldn't be the first time a VA has done double, triple duty in a series. :D

    Maybe zachary quinto, the current Spock as Shockwave? He sounds menacing and was sylar in heroes and was evil. I've a feeling in the movie Shockwave might have a russian accent so there could be a major shake up in Shcokwaves being after the movie

    Doug Bradley. There is no other logical choice.

    I think too much is being made of Corey Burton's statements in the past. Not only do I think he would be the best and most obvious choice to offer the role to, but I'm pretty sure he would also accept it.

    Clancy Brown would make a great Megatron, but Shockwave? Nah.

    I'd want Weird Al Yankovic doing his Animated Wreck-Gar voice, just to see the fan reaction.

    Also, antagonists with silly voices and mannerisms who are nonetheless efficient and lethal are cool.

    Seriously, I was really impressed by his script reading as TransTech Shockwave at BotCon '08. He could totally pull it off. David Warner though seems likely if Corey Burton isn't going to do it.

    Corey Burton. Anything else would be uncivilized.

    All he did was grunt. He was a multi-player only charatcer.

    1) Will Shockwave appear in Transformers: Prime? It's possible. He's certainly gonna get a lot more attention and recognition after appearing in DOTM.

    2) Who should voice him? I'm putting my vote in for Lee Tockar, using that classy Russian accent he used for Beast Wars Ravage.
