    There is a thread about Ironhide's voice.....so why not have an other thread that has the sort of the same purpose!!


    Well, we all know that there might be an ep. that shows Soundwave talking. We all know that might happen. So who do you think should voice him?


    I think it should be Douglas Rain....the voice of HAL 900 from 2001:A Space Odyssey. See:Hal 9000 VS Dave - Ontological scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey - YouTube

    What do you think?

    Not the generic vocoder. Do we want Soundwave to sing his lines?

    I like the idea for Hal's voice. Just so emotionless and cold...


    Or he can not talk.

    Nobody. Or Snake Eyes. Either of those would be good in my book.

    I'm hoping he stays silent. Just makes him more creepy and mysterious IMO.

    I almost feel like he shouldn't have a voice actor. He's a badass without one. His muteness(not sure if thats even a word) makes you not wanna fuck with him

    Him or you can eat Trollwaves shinny metal ass.

    On a serious note, I think G1 but only if they could make it so he doesn't sound tuneful. That wouldn't be fitting but if they could get rid of that part, then the electronicness would make him sound drone like and empty.

    A possible defense for wanting TFP Soundwave to remain mute:

    He has absolutely no face, just a computer screen on the front of his head. (Even the G1 and Animated incarnations of Shockwave each had a single optic, and Movie-verse Shockwave had that in addition to a weird little maw of fangs.) Hearing Soundwave's voice come from what might seem like nowhere could seem unusual, even if the visual context of the scene showed that it would be originating from him.

    In addition, he hasn't spoken for twenty-eight episodes (and I'm guessing it'll be twenty-nine this Saturday), so even if he were to start saying just one line every few episodes or something, it might seem strange for him to suddenly have a literal voice of his own.
