    I was just wondering, what kinds of voices do you imagine the characters from MTMTE and RID having when you read their caption bubbles? I'm sorry if there has already been a thread like this.

    here's my short list

    whirl - something reminiscent of Roberto from futurama.
    tailgate - something like Wheatly from portal 2

    what about you guys?

    There's already a guy on tumblr named crashboombanger who has voiced scenes in MTMTE. One of them happened to involve the conflict between Ratchet and Pharma. He's also done a voice for Drift that sounds... well... amazing!

    It would be best if you listened here. Beware spoilers if you haven't read the comics.

    When I read Tailgate I hear a not-******ed Caboose from Red vs. Blue. When I read Skids I hear Bruce Boxleitner. When I read Swerve I hear Jim Belushi.

    Those are the only "interesting" ones that aren't just one of the character's past voice actors.

    I've been reading Whirl as Heath Ledger's Joker.

    And this was BEFORE Fort Max found "nothing to threaten him with!" ;)

    Those were rather cool. Thanks for the link man. :) 
    I never really read anyone with someone elses voice but I think this idea has just infected me...

    I hear Fred Willard when reading Swerve. The other more well known bots I hear their G1 voices.

    I used to hear Rung as a middle ground between Niles and Fraiser Crane, but now I don't hear anything.

    I can't help but read Rung as Doctor Venture. Mostly because he's the first thing that comes to mind when I look at him.

    Listened to the Tumblr voiceovers. Damn, that was funny stuff.

    Swerve as a dumb-sounding hick really works.

    Not really. He's too well-spoken and a wise-guy. He's more like a comedian.

    Then again I don't expect logic from Tumblr.
