Happy Birthday Michael Bell!

My top 10 favourite roles of his are:

1.) Duke (G.I Joe)
2.) Quackerjack (Darkwing Duck)
3.) Swoop (Transformers)
4.) Prowl (Transformers)
5.) Chaz Finster (Rugrats)
6.) Drew Pickles (Rugrats)
7.) High Tide (Transformers: Rescue Bots)
8.) Sideswipe (Transformers)
9.) Raziel (Legacy of Kain)
10.) Scrapper (Transformers)

I met Michael Bell at TFCon a few weeks ago, and he's definitely a great guy to talk too. I got him to sign my MP Prowl and a CW Bombshell I bought at the dealer room that weekend.

I also got him to say Porkchop Sandwiches (reference to the FenslerFilm PSA G.I Joe parody dub) in his Blowtorch voice.

It was great meeting a true voice acting legend. The fact his voice barely sounds like it was aged is great. Duke, Sideswipe and Scrapper sound just as great as they did in the 80's. :D

Happy Birthday Michael Bell!

"So, this was my terrible destiny... to play out this purgatorial cycle for all eternity. I could not bear it. Despair overwhelmed me".

I feel very Frustrated that The 'Legacy of Kain' series is Dormant, since Michael Bell may never reprise the role of Raziel ( my favourite role form him).

Michael Bell is doing TFCon Toronto this summer! :D

Now to determine which of his character's figures I should have him sign....Prowl, Sideswipe, Swoop, First Aid, Brainstorm or Bombshell?

Decisions....Decisions.

Pretty exciting he'll be there.

I think that this guy should do the voice of E-102 Gamma & Chaos Gamma in the future main sonic game or a spin off sonic game when the time is right in a way.

It would be really cool in my opinion. And he's no stranger to voicing a robotic character(s) he voiced before.

Just a little while ago I was gonna comment on how his image looked like just a floating head since he was wearing dark against a dark background, but now he's got a new one and that no longer applies.

Happy Birthday Michael Bell.

2015 has been a most excellent year for him, as he finally got to come back to the Transformers franchise for the first time in over 30 years. Between voicing a new character like High Tide in Rescue Bots and reprising Sideswipe for the Transformers: Devastatation game...it really has been a great year.

Swoop, Duke, Chaz Finster, Drew Pickles and Grandpa Boris are easily my favourite roles of his.

I've got a new favourite role of his now, well it's not new but late last year I heard his Quackerjack for the first time when I watched all of Darkwing Duck and oh man is he enjoyable in this role, playing this manic toy based super villain.

"IT'S PLAYTIME!"

It's one of the few times Bell got to voice a comedic villain and he was fan-freaking tastic.

As I've said before, I'm really glad he's been able to come back to the Transformers franchise in the past year, I hope he gets some opportunities to do it again in the near future. The fact that he can still play a really youthful character like Sideswipe at his age is nothing short of incredible.

Happy Birthday Michael Bell

My favorite role of his is The Fear from MGS 3. I though he was very creepy as him.
