Yah but , who could even tell it was welker?
I'm not that bothered that Corey Burton wasn't Shockwave this time. He didn't get many lines. Two, maybe three at most.
I was originally thinking he would get a large role in the movie and would talk a lot which is why I wanted the familar Shockwave voice.
Dr Claw Soundwave worked for this Soundwave, though. Especially the utterly creepy delivery of the line
No prisoners, only trophies
Shockwave had tons of lines, what are you smoking son?
And least we forget his memorable and inspiring.....

Truly spot on dude!
Now i wish Arnold Schartzenagger had voice him.
well conventional va s weren't used for jazz, ratchet, brawl, bonecrusher, blackout, jetfire, bumblebee, mudflap, frenzy and the fallen. So it's a pretty big dig at most of the actors not just Weaving as Megatron.
Hugo Weaving for me was the best megatron ever imo, he sounded powerful, evil, intelligent and believeable as the villain. Welker( all due respect to a fine voice actor) just couldn't pull that beastly voice that weaving could. All anyone has to do is listen to the two movies game tie in megatron, it sounds awful. I imagine most of shockwaves dialogue was cut as welkers shockwave voice sounded tired but pleasantly russian. Weaving was the best choice for megatron and he has embodied evil characters at the top, agent smith and now the red skull and of course Megatron, the mans credentials can't be denied. He did a wonderful job and I would love to see him return as megatron some day.
John has unfortunately (but understandably) been forever overshadowed by his record-breaking voice. He's actually quite a capable performer, although the only piece he didn't simply speed-talk through I can think of was in the Adventure Time short "The Enchiridion!" as Keyper. He's actually quite good for his brief appearance.
Fair enough, but I personally never warmed up to this version of the voice. Just reminded me too much of Tony Todd's The Fallen. Plus the synthesized version was THE one & only thing I had hoped for and expected for a movie-verse Soundwave since I expected everything else about him (bot mode, alt mode, colors, etc) to change. But what's done is done, so I won't harp on it
