    I can do a pretty good G1 Megatron and Prime impression, also some Rattrap plus Primal.

    Which characters can you impersonation?

    This would be better if there was some example of you actually doing these impressions...

    Speaking of which I actually do have a video of me singing very badly, the Transformers theme song as Megatron, Starscream, Soundwave, and Shockwave. The singing is terrible, kind of intentionally, but the impressions are pretty decent... except for Soundwave, I was literally talking into a tin can to get that voice. I had recorded other characters but the video editor only had space to overlap four different sound files. Because they're over lapped to make it sound as if all four characters are singing together it might be kinda hard to hear some of them especially when Starscream is so much louder than the others. Obviously I can't actually do all four at the same time and talk over myself, that's editing. I recorded them one at a time and then just had them play on top of each other.



    This reminds me, I've been thinking about doing a new series where I look up a bunch of characters and just based on the animation model without listening to their voice try to guess what I think they should sound like. Then after words I'd play the character's real voice to see how close I was and make a second attempt to impersonate that voice.

    Thing is though I need some suggestions to really make it work cause if I already know the character's voice then I'm just going to be imitating it right off the bat instead of trying to do my own interpretation of the character based on the Animation model alone.

    So far the only one I know I'm decent at is WfC/FoC Starscream.

    I can almost do G1 Ironhide and I'm a pretty decent Powerglide if my dad's anything to go by.

    G1 Starscream and a little bit TFP Optimus and G1 Megatron. I'm not sure right now about Cyclonus and Scourge and I'm currently on the bus, so I can't try :D

    I can do not bad impression of Waspinator, but I'm still having problem on keeping it for long without sounding like Kermit with speech problems.
    Other impressions:
    Movie Optimus which is a bit nice.
    WFC Megatron polish voice actor, but considering original performance my impression can't be worse.
    Own impression of Deathsaurus, but for me it's still sounds to much Overlord-esque.
    I used to make nice G1 Starscream when I was younger, but now it sounds like TFS Frieza mixed with Spongebob after a solid kick in his bubbles.
    Own impression of Rung which is just C 3PO voice, but a bit lower.
    TFP Knockout which is not that bad.
    If I plan to record it I will post it here.

    I just had some fun recording a few lines on my phone. But now I gotta head to bed or it's getting too late. Hope that I'll be able to provide it by the weekend :) 

    Although in hindsight I think my G1 Megatron sounds more like TFP Megatron...

    Waspinator, Rattrap, BW Megatron, Dinobot (tears up my throat, though), Shockwave, Rumble...and G1 Prime on a good day.

    Dinobot, Waspinator, Movie Ironhide, Movie Ratchet, Movie Megatron, Movie Starscream (Was actually cast in a fan video that fell through to play Starscream), and a decent G1 Shockwave and G1 Grimlock. That on top of being able to do Kermit the Frog, Bert and Ernie, Elmo, Don Knotts, Jimmy Stewart, Donald Duck, and Mickey Mouse, to name a few. I also did I really good Bill Clinton but it's been YEARS since I did him. Also did in a fan video multiple versions of the Joker for a Evolution of the Joker scene (I provided the Mark Hamil version and the Heath Ledger version) but that sadly is no longer available.

    I can do a decent Unicron Trilogy Optimus, also by extension Optimus Primal because they share the same voice actor, and Armada Starscream, not to mention a decent Cybertron Jetfire. And this is coming from a female fan no less!:lol  I can also a decent Override too. :3

    My twin can also do Cybertron Jetfire, a bit better than me, and a very good Scooby-Doo impression, not to mention Waspinator, although it's been YEARS since she tried it. Never tried to do other impressions though, so I don't know who else I can do. XD!

    I like to think I can do a decent G1 Shockwave Impression, but that's for others to judge.

    Probably won't make it this weekend. I'm on my way home right now and waiting for the train. I learned today that a friend killed himself :(

    If you can do Jimmy Stewart, you should be able to do G1 Hound easily.
