    Too bad, he seemed like a really cool guy. Thanks for the Decepticon memories, Mr. Papenbrook.

    "Runiation: Awakens!"

    One of my most favorite quotes in all of Transformers. Very sad to know the person who gave it life is no longer with us. :(

    That's really saddening. I actually got to play (Universe) Ruination during the OTFCC '04 script reading, though he wasn't a character I really felt too well (my vocal range doesn't pitch low enough, but I did follow Simon Furman's instructions to voice like a military general).

    (offers a 21-gun salute and a moment of silence)

    Mr. Papenbrook gave an insignificant toy - incredible life. My sincerest thanks to him and his talents.
