    G1 without a doubt had by far the most memorable voices in TF history, which ones were your favourites? Here are mine;

    Scorponok- he only had one line in the entire series but it was so badass! Autobot Diiiiiiiiiiiiie!
    Optimus Prime- Peter Cullen is to Optimus Prime as Kevin Conroy is to Batman, enough said!
    Shrapnel- A little heavy on the electrons, electrons!
    Fracas- His voice was so annoying as intended but I loved it!
    Galvatron- Though Nimoy's take on him made him seem more menacing I actually like both takes on the character!
    Brainstorm- Same guy who voiced Sideswipe, awesome!
    Soundwave- Pure awesomeness!
    Cyclonus- Rebirth voice only!
    Scourge- See above!
    Megatron
    Mindwipe
    Rumble
    Tracks
    Blurr

    I tried to keep it to ten but that's G1 for you, what are yours?

    Optimus Prime - Cullen IS Prime!
    Megatron - Frank Welker, no one can fill Megs shoes like him!
    Prowl - Mike Bell gave Prowl some authority!
    Starscream - Chris Latta made Starscream the snivling double-crosser we all know and love!
    Jazz - Scatman was the perfect choice for this Autobot hipster!
    Grimlock - Greg Berger gave Grimlock the booming voice and primative intillect he needed to make the character believable.

    STARSCREAM. Chris Latta was the best Starscream ever, followed by Steven Blum. Tom Kenny was OK, but I kept expecting him to talk about Krabby Patties.

    LOL. :D  Sometimes I felt the same way when Bulkhead talked. :p  Half expected him to accuse Starscream of giving him The Ugly. :D

    Nobody mentioned Omega Supreme? I don't know who voiced him, but his voice was pure awesomeness!

    "Comment appreciated."

    I loved Cyclonus' "Once decepticons nearly held the quadrant..." speech. He fluxuated though
    Soundwave was fantastic.
    Rodimus had a sort of weight to his voice that really emphasized the burden of leadership. I pick up on it more now than I did as a kid, but its a great nuance.
    Onslaught was perfect as a tactitian in his cold Redcoat voice.
    I think my favorite was Dead End, maybe heightened by his personality. It was cool to see an existential nihilst obsesed with futility on a show for kids. Find that on the CW today.

    Soundwaves voice is epic, he just sounds so cold and calculating, never makes a misstake.

    Cyclonus has a dark powerfull voice, the one that you would think a leader should have. I especially like the sentence in the Quintessons Journel " I will join you at its source, be on alert the autobots may also have recived the signal, there is a probabilety of combat !

    Prime...he dont need any explination.

    ultra Magnus does also come of as a loyal sgt in a army or some sort of commander. He also eradicate of leadership and commander abiletys (the I cant deal with that now is just ridicules)

    Okay, aside from Cullen/Prime because that's obvious...

    Shockwave is probably my favorite. Corey Burton has such a distinct voice for the character and it even held up into TFA (which while I know isn't G1, the line "I know I can't catch you...but I can trap you." was just perfect).

    Also; how is it that only two people have acknowledged Mr. Orson Welles?

    I mean, I know the actor himself hated the role, but Unicron still had a great voice.
