    Ok, so here's how this is gonna work. Choose 2-4 of your favorite characters from either faction (so 4-8 in total) and choose a preferable voice actor that you loved as the character in a previous series and/or would like to see play that character in future series. Also give a small description of why. Also feel free to discuss and comment on other people's choices/ideas I'll go first.

    Bots:

    Optimus Prime - Peter Cullen - No Reason Required.

    Bumblebee - Owen Wilson - All this no voice Bumblebee stuff is bull, and I think we should give Bee a voice and that voice should be Owen Wilson. Just because.

    Jazz - Eddie Murphy - The low-voiced, African American, Jazz in the 2007 Movie was genius, but not really done correctly. I think Jazz while still having in African American voice actor should have more swag and attitude, and Eddie Murphy is the man for the job!


    Cons:

    Megatron - Hugo Weaving - Don't get me wrong, Frank Welker is a frickin GOD! But I just can't get over how great Hugo Weaving was as Megatron in the movies and I'd love to see him come back for more some day in a non-movie incarnation

    Soundwave - Frank Welker - With light vocoding, no other reason(s) required!

    Scourge - John Noble - The way I like to think of it in my WIP fan-fic, Scourge is the orginal leader of the Decepticons, who is killed, or thought to be, by Megs, and comes back, and puts him in his place! And the way John Noble's Unicron pit Megs in his place in prime was just epic! And plus, the voice fits the character nicely

    Thunderwing - Scott McNeil - Just because. The voice fits the face very well. Very BW Dinobot-esque.

    So, whadda you think?

    Optimus Prime - Gary Chalk. I grew up with his Optimus, I'd like to see him voice him again.

    Red Alert - Kevin Conroy, I think his voice would fit Red Alert, plus having Batman voice a Transformer would be awesome.

    Wheeljack - Honestly, I'm fine with James Horan's Wheeljack in Prime. Even if he was more inventor-y and less badass, I think the voice would fit.



    Megatron - David Kaye. Same reason as for Optimus.

    Starscream - Steve Blum. He's voicing the best Starscream ever in Prime, so yeah.

    Soundwave - Frank Welker. No explanation needed. Frank Welker is Soundwave.

    Demolishor - Alvin Sanders. Same guy who did him for the Unicron Trilogy. I really don't see a reson for another voice for him.

    Cyclonus (Armada-based) - Mark Hamill. If you've got Batman, might as well have Joker too. Armada Cyclonus was insane, Mark Hamill's Joker voice (altered somewhat, as to not be a carbon copy) would be excellent for this character.

    interesting stuff. Oddly, I've always liked to see Morgan Freeman play a Transformer or even narrate, just because

    Have to agree with AMG and Iacon.

    What I'd like to see in future series:

    Thunderwing - Peter Cullen's Cindarr voice

    Scorponok - Frank Welker's Dr. Claw voice

    Nightbeat - Jeffrey Combs

    Fortress Maximus - Sean Connery

    Springer - Hugh Jackman

    Overlord - Hugo Weaving's movie Megatron voice

    Impactor - Kevin Conroy

    Sunstorm - A close impersonation of Chris Latta's Reflector voice(s). The echo effect would complement his 'possession'.

    Soundblaster - 80's Cyclon voice

    I wish


    Like the Bruce as Springer idea, and Beavis and Butthead Runamuch and Runabout would be funny as hell.

    I have seen people say Kevin Conroy as Ultra Magnus, but I think Kup's a better fit
