    He will be dearly missed - an incredible body of work well beyond his contributions to Transformers, and on our beloved show, he contributed some major characters. My condolences are with his family in this time.

    Now the only surviving G1 Seeker VA is Skywarp's (Frank Welker) :(  :'(

    Dang, I knew this was due sooner or later. Guy was oooooooooooooooooold. Too bad he got Alzheimer's. The last thing I remember hearing of him was in a commercial about 10 or so years ago where his iconic Thundercrackeresque voice said, "You kids BETTER STOP!"

    I saw him on Hogan's Heroes and even Perry Mason. That guy was around forever.
