    Did you like Sentinel Prime as voiced by Leonard Nimoy in Transformers: Dark of the Moon? Do you think his voice was as memorable and captivating as Optimus' voice? Also, did the voice remind you of Galvatron? I personally loved the voice and think it was on par with Peter Cullen's performance as Optimus; the voice helped to re-enforce the idea of Sentinel being an age-old warrior of high esteem. I wish I could imitate the voice, but I can't. :(

    I thought his voice was one of the best voices in the whole trilogy, although I loved most of them. I hope Nimoy does more TF voice acting in the future.

    No question, it was a huge casting victory. I just wish the toy had his voice, I wonder if they'll release upgraded versions of Leader SP.

    Yes! I loved his Voice I think He sounded like he Once Had Great
    knowledge, and wisdom, but lost That and
    Abandon His Beliefs, and All that he stood for, and Became a
    Traitor and was too far gone to be Brought back.
    Leonard Nimoy did a great Job.:thumbs2: he was One Of the Best
    But I'm A sucker For Optimus' Voice :drool:  Optimus'/Peter Cullen
    still has The Best voice and Voicing Performance In My own Opinion:)

    I'm so glad Bay didn't pull his secret weapon out for The Fallen like so many people expected/wanted. Had to wait 'til the last movie to call in the family favor and it was so worth it.

    They gotta have a very famous actor to play an important character.

    AH-MAY-ZING!!!!! i loved Sentinel in DOTM and some ppl question this cause he's the bad guy right, but i think they did such a great job on his character, and i don't think anyone could've done him like Nimoy did.

    plus all the Star Trek references were funny lol

    Nimoy (and Cullen) showed us why there needs to be an Academy Award for voice work.

    Loved his voice. Stellar performance on Nimoy's part. Sentinel was a great character and I really think the voice helped his character a lot. I can't imagine anyone else doing Sentinel now. Really, all the voices of the bots and cons were great but Sentinel's definitely stands out like Optimus' voice

    He did an amazing job, same goes for his role as Galvatron.
    Also, I hadn't known that he's Bay's cousin-in-law(?).

    Pretty much what everyone else has said. IT. WAS. PERFECT.

    -Definitely on par with Cullen's Optimus.
    -Fit so perfectly.
    -Glad to hear Nimoy used for Sentinel and not wasted on The Fallen.
    -AMAZING.
