    As we all know, John DiMaggio (aka Bender from Futurama) provided the voice for Leadfoot in Dark of the Moon. When I hear Leadfoot, he reminds me of Rico from Penguins of Madagascar (for the fact that John DiMaggio did voice him).

    To be honest, Ever since I heard Bill Fagerbakke was going to voice one of the Wreckers, I imagined he was going to voice Leadfoot.

    I would have thought Leadfoot would sound a bit like Bulkhead from Transformers Animated or Alan from Jumanji. Either way, a crazy deep voice.

    Did you think Bill Fagerbakke would have been better as Leadfoot? I'm not saying in the future, I'm say even before you saw the movie.

    I would have loved if John DiMaggio did Leadfoot with a more Bender like voice.

    Not a chance in hell.

    John Di Maggio's voice sound like a badass old engineer who fought in the Vietnam War, that's why I love movie-verse Leadfoot, Bill Faggerblake would end up doing a "dumb" voice [like Patrick] or something "less dumb but still dumb" [Bulkhead], either way, I prefer John Di Maggio for this role, the sheer badassery brought by him cannot be matched.

    So incredibly true. DiMaggio gave us the voice of someone who's really pissed, hateful and violent on the inside, who loves to fight, but at the same time knows that not everything is a battle.

    Leadfoot's voice was perfect the way it was.

    No.

    Bill Faggerbakke should have been Topspin, He didn't have any lines, He was confirmed to be in DOTM at one point. Why cut him?

    Yeah, I thought Faggerbakke said he'd be in DoTM. But I guess not.

    He could've been Topspin, but I guess Bays too cheap to pay him.

    I don't know if I want him as Leadfoot, but I wish he had been in the film to voice someone

    Yeah, Leadfoot's voice was perfect the way it was. I loved the Scottish accents on Roadbuster and Leadfoot!

    Which only makes him more awesome, Barbossa is one of the best characters ever.

    I mean, just picture what happened off-screne in the shuttle scene:

    *Roadbuster giving orders*

    Leadfoot - What are you doin'?
    Roadbuster - What are YOU doin'?
    Leadfoot - No, what AARRE you doin'?
    Roadbuster - What are YOU doin'?
    Leadfoot - No, what ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRE you doin'?

    i would have loved it if he had just used his bender voice. Or at least told someone to bite his shiny metal ass.

    No. I fear Bill would've overdone the character.
