    I didn't have positive or negative things to say about the earlier chapters' voice acting but this BW Megs is pretty bad. He sounds like a teenager who just got to meet his favorite action movie star.

    Would it shock anyone if the goal was to make Bayverse look better.
    Tell a story as cheep as possible to sell toys currently on shelves… holding out for the big money Movie next year.
    Compared to this the movie will be better

    As much I enjoy the 'oh shit, this is doomed', I'm going to play angel's advocate. This is the only clip we've (or at least I've) heard and while, yes, it isn't what we expected him to sound like, it also has no context because to me, this is exactly what Beast Megs would do. Smooze up to the stronger party, gain their trust, work his way into the inner circle and then backstab G1 Megs at the precise moment to win all the marbles. Let G1 Megs take all the risk and paint a target on his back while Beast Megs waits in the wings to reap the rewards.

    Yeah, but
    - The person who posted that clip said that thru the whole show BW Megatron stays a fanboy toady and is never menacing
    - BW Megatron doesn't need to sound like an old man with asthma to suck up to somebody

    Yeah that tracks. This is coming from the same people who said they wanted to "recapture the heart of Bumblebee" with Siege and instead gave us a joyless slog. To them "the heart" of the film was seeing Soundwave eject Ravage from his chest, so they saw "BW Megatron named himself after the original" and decided he's a fanboy and left it at that.

    1) Dang it. I'mma still watch it with naïve optimism and you can't stop me.
    2) Eh, it's slowly growing on me.

    Well it looks a bit better than the initial image.
    But fuck that voice is perfect for Scorponok but absolute shit for BW Megs.

    Sounds better than Optimus Prime, so there's that.

    Don't we have AI technology that can recreate people's voices? Get some audio engineer to redub the whole thing with computer AI versions of the original VAs.

    No, Jake's Prime voice can still sound like Optimus (when he isn't emoting anything other than stoicsm). This NEVER once sounds like Beast Megatron or anything even close to it

    It’s really not that bad considering they are NOT the OG characters (scale) had this been set in the G1 universe Galvatron would have destroyed the Maximals and Predicons with a Nucleon Fart.

    35 years from now On this very message board grown 10 something year old children that watch this trilogy will be bitching about the new remake how it has destroyed their childhood and ruined their beloved franchise

    Jesus Christ that Beast Megatron voice.

    Once they've shredded off the metallic vocalizer, you can really hear the bad YouTuber voice acting punching through. It's no wonder they completely overdid it with the first two now to hide it.

    Plus side... Netflix has 1.5x speed for videos now. Makes the show drag on less.

    It's unfortunate though... There are a few ideas here that could merit exploration...

    Is there any estimate as to what this trilogy's budget was? Be curious to to know how it compares to Prime, PRID, or even the latter two entries to the Unicron Trilogy.

    Please no. It's as creepy as those holograms of dead celebrities they use as music festivals.
