Soundwave gets voice

04.27.2009

Soundwave Last month an off-hand comment TRANSFORMERS: REVENGE OF THE FALLEN co-scribe Robert Orci made about speaking with Leonard Nimoy about voicing the titular Fallen got fanboys a little giddy seeing as how Nimoy is an iconic-voiced cool dude and has previously voiced Galvatron in the animated Transformers movie. Since then the only thing that's happened is that whenever Nimoy's asked about it during interviews promoting the upcoming STAR TREK, he usually says something along the lines of "Michael Bay just has to ask". However, UGO has recently managed to confirm one other Transformers cartoon voice actor who'll be returning in REVENGE OF THE FALLEN - Frank Welker. The veteran voice actor who, over the years, has voiced Megatron, Galvatron, Wheelie, Soundwave and a bunch of others will be voicing Soundwave in the sequel.

Extra Tidbit: Soundwave played a much smaller role in the Marvel comic book series than he did in the cartoon.

robert patrick?

whats the point of getting Robert Patrick? how does he sound like btw? He sounds like a normal person. Not only that, they probably would digitalize his voice so much that you would not be able to reconize him. For example, Hugo Weaving..that was dumb.

Mike Patton is apparently voicing a character called Mixmaster. So this piece of shit will at least have a good voice cast.

Don't know why they didn't just give him Megatron, he did the voice just as awesome in the video game version of the last movie as he did on the show for years.

It's been stated numerous times that Welker's voice was too aged. He couldn't do the voice as good anymore. I'm soo fucking happy that they kept Soundwaves main symbolic parts as to identify who it is. Instead of completely changing the way he looks

Extra tidbit - They are currently using Peter Cullen voice as Optimus Prime for Coors Light Commercials.

OK, so he'll be doing the voice, but will it be done with the effect like the cartoon? Why didn't they ask Welker to voice Megatron in the first one??? One of the best things was that Prime kept his voice.
