    People would accuse them of exploiting a man's death to make a quick buck. If they want to honor him, they'll have to think of another way.

    Sky Byte his only transformers role, yet that was enough to make the character one of the most popular and memorable from that show.

    Rest in Peace Pete.

    Rip Peter Spellos.

    My enemies have found me
    They surround me and confound me
    And with inbound missiles hound me
    As they hit the ground around me
    But with one astounding bound
    I shall escape
    Bye!

    I only just recently watched RID for the first time and I completely understand why Sky Byte caught on like he did, and that voice for me was a huge part of it.

    Honestly at this point I wish companies would just ignore those people and honor those that have past how they want to. People tend to not understand the difference between honoring someone and actually taking advantage of a death. Me being a wrestling fan I've seen how idiotic those people can be, anytime a wrestler passes and the wrestling companies do a tribute show the "your just making money off a death" crowd comes out full force.

    Poet shark Sky-Byte
    Peter Spellos voiced him well
    Farewell TF friend

    Met him at Botcon 20+ years ago. He was also the voice of Sagat in the English dub of Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie.
