    I know Peter Cullen is the obvious answer but for me personally David Kaye as Megatron and Garry Chalk as Optimus Primal/Prime are my top favourites.

    Corey Burton's Megatron is another top favourite.

    also Steve Blum's Starscream, Daran Norris as Knock Out, Scott McNeil in his many roles and I gotta give a shout out to Ryan Andes as both Grimlock and Shockwave, the man's legitimately a great VA.

    For me, it would be Animated Megatron as my first. The guy is seriously evil sounding! But at the same time, he has this refined air about him, and it shows in the way he speaks too. Corey Burton was amazing for his work on him. And Animated Ratchet was done well too.

    Another is Cybertron Optimus and Optimus Primal. Gary Chalk did a good job with him, and even showed emotions. No offense to Peter Cullen, as he too is a good voice for Optimus as the original, but the voice for Prime from him as of late has been lacking in the emotional department; the only Optimus he voiced that hasn’t lacked emotion was the Bumblebee movie.

    I also like Armada Starscream’s voice as well. And Animated Screamer also has a good voice too.

    Not the best necessarily, but I always thought Dick Gautier did a really good job with Rodimus. There were a lot of really good tone changes, inflections, and dry bits that showed he wasn’t just going through the motions of a cartoon voice actor.

    Roger C. Carmel was pretty inconsistent with his characters, but man, did he have a cool voice.

    Swindle, Dead End, Onslaught, Blast Off, Rege Cordic when he was doing Quintessons- those guys stuck out for me too.

    Personally, I always felt Dick nailed Rodimus perfectly. He really made Rodimus a really relatable character. I really feel he's truly underrated. He delivered a much natural performance than Judd Nelson.

    I was always impressed by G1 Soundwave. But looking back now, i'd go for G1 Jazz, he's just cool!

    G1 Powerglide. Whoever came up with the idea to have him sound like Jackie Gleason was a genius. :lol 

    His voice amuses me, I wanna hear him narrate things.

    G1 Starscream, despite being screechy at times it fits with his character and I think his voice really shines when he talks in a more calm manner at times. Heck, I find myself quoting a lot of his lines ever so often.

    Another that I like is Movie Sentinel Prime, I think it's the better parts of Dark of the moon

    My favorite as a kid, but watching it again, Jazz seems a bit too cheesy. Optimus Prime though. I wish Peter Cullen did audiobooks so I could listen to that voice narrate a great story.

    Reminds me, I would've loved Lionel Stander's Kup to do audio books of Kup's old war stories.
