I'm so glad Sega didn't let him go when they replaced the entire voice cast in 2010. I still can't even picture of what he would sound like today without Pollock. He wouldn't sound the same, I give a whole lot of credit to Sega for not replacing him and letting him go. They made the right choice for keeping him to this day. He's the best Eggman!

@Anthonyiscool64 The best part is that he now has the opportunity to work with work with more LA-based voice actors--like Vic Mignogna, Kate Higgins, Steven Blum, Crispin Freeman, and even Troy Baker (although I'm still hoping that he'll get to work with Johnny Yong Bosch someday and/or re-locate to LA in the near future).

He was epic as Zorc Necrophades.

Mike Pollock should totally get a voice role in one of the DLCs that are coming out for Fallout 4.

What? Sean Schemmel was in the main game, and he does voice-work in both Texas AND New York.

@Bauglir100 The difference is that Sean Schemmel actually lives in California (is signed to an agency and everything). Mike Pollock lives in New York.

@NCZ But there are studios in the New York area that can relay to the DC area (where Bethesda is located).

Mike should do the voice of Zhang Fei in the next Dynasty Warriors game.

Happy Birthday Mike Pollock!

Not only are you a fantastic Dr. Eggman, you were also absolutely hilarious as Meat in Ultimate Muscle, he also had perfect chemistry with Marc Thompson's Kid Muscle!

Happy 51st Birthday Mike Pollock. It's been nice talking you you, and it's nice you've now come along way with Dr. Eggman, having started in 2005.

@DarkWhite He records his lines from NY via ISDN, but occasionally travelled to be in the booth for Sonic Boom.

Am I wrong to say I prefer his narration over Rodger Parsons?
said at 12:20 PM on Sat Sep 19 2015
No, I kind of do too now: Parsons used to be great, but since the Unova League, he's been blatantly phoning it in to me.
said at 9:32 PM on Sat Sep 19 2015
@Dr.Who Parsons had great narrations in Battle Frontier and Sinnoh but by XY Cathcart just decided to give him corny lines. Plus he fell out of my favorite voices after I heard his rendition of Flint.
said at 9:35 PM on Sat Sep 19 2015
I agree, though it was around the League in BW Parsons began phoning it in as narrator, but you're right in XY his lines are corny and IMO he sounds lifeless compared to how energetic he used to be from OS-DP.
said at 10:49 AM on Sun Sep 20 2015
@MatthewC17 i agree because i never liked Rodger Parsons
at least he doesnt say "our three heroes!" anymore.

Happy Birthday Mike Pollock.

Dr. Eggman is easily the highlight of his career, no matter how bad the Sonic franchise sinks into Mike is the best part of it.

He was also hilarious in Berserk, Viva Pinata and had a lot good roles in Pokemon....yes even in the TCPI dub.

He's by far one of the best in New York and he's one of the friendliest too, not too long ago he replied to a Youtube comment I made on a RebelTaxi video which was simply "Oh Hi Mike Pollock". Simply put he's awesome.

Mike Pollock is an EXCELLENT second choice for Eggman that Sega picked. of course Deem Bristow will always be in my heart and I'll always have memories of his voice. but Mike has also created memories for me as well. even though I got the Sonic Riders games for the PS2 late. maybe two or three years ago if memory serves me correct. and I'm extremely thankful that they found another person that is also awesome as Eggman.

Best Eggman voice ever! ;)

Having played SONIC COLORS in its entirety I can agree wholeheartedly about Pollock's performance as Eggman (as well as everyone else in that dub, too). But my favorite role from him is as another doctor of a different nature: Dr. Moustache from the seldom seen Jungle Emperor Leo movie. He sounded very warm and kindly, and did an excellent job of breaking down at the end of the film (you'd have to see it to know where I'm coming from).

Happy birthday, Mike!

I'm actually glad he stayed as Eggman, even with the new cast. He was the best of the Sonic X VAs (next to David Wills as Espio).
