Nice interview man!
Great interview!

I had the pleasure of meeting Neil Kaplan at one of the Cybercons, and we actually had a long coversation about voice acting, Transformers, and an interesting story he told me about meeting William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy.

One of the nicest guys you'll ever meet! I still have the RID Prime that he signed for me. Hope he gets involved with TF's again. His Bullwinke is dead on too!
Good read. He seems like a great guy. Nice job aksmth
Nice interview! Good job, d00d.
Wow, it's almost like an omen. I've been pondering about becoming a voice actor for the last month or so; thinking that even though I've always dreamed of being an animator, I'd absolutely love being a voice actor; and now I find an interview with a well-known voice actor giving advice on how to become one.
Very interesting interview.
I'd very much like to do it professionally as well. Not exactly sure where to start though, but certainly - guys like Neil are quite inspirational
I met Neil at Botcon Europe in 2002; he was wandering around, chatting to people, making sure they were having a good time. He was a really nice guy, I spent quite a while just chatting with him. Great interview d00d!
Good interview. I hope to meet him some day at a TF convention.
He was at Comic Con during the Transformers conference. During the Q/A session he asked for a roll in the new animated series.

He looks like a pretty cool guy =P
Such a nice guy! & he's funny too. & i hope he will get other TF related roles in the future. (maybe TF movie sequels)

Nice to hear from Mr. Kaplan again. I met him at Botcon Europe '02 as well. Such a lively, fun and enthusiastic guy! I'd love to meet him again at another con in future, tho' i don't think he'll be back in the UK again anytime soon. I'd like to see him return to a TFs series again in future as well.

Great interview guys.
He auditioned for TFA? Aw I hope he gets a part on there in later seasons!
Pretty cool interview.

Didn't know Neil found out he was out of a job at the same Armada 'premiere' we got in Botcon 2002.
