Voice Compare » Superman » Toyman

Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Toyman with sound clips and images.
Toyman is usually a primarily antagonist of Superman. The better known of Toyman is Winslow Schott, who first appeared in Action Comics #64 (September 1943). Winslow Schott was a toymaker who was fired from the toy company he worked for after Lex Luthor and LexCorp acquired said company. Angry and embittered, he started building dangerous weapons shaped like toys and went on a dangerous campaign to kill Luthor, which brought him into conflict with Superman and was stopped. The second Toyman first appeared in Action Comics #432 (February 1974). A man by the name of Jack Nimball took the name Toyman after Schott apparently retired. Nimball dressed in a yellow jester outfit and like Schott, used toy-based weaponry to commit crimes. His criminal career ended after Schott came out of retirement and murdered Nimball. A more heroic version of Toyman appeared in Superman #177 (February 2002). Hiro Okamura is a child prodigy and mechanical genius from Japan who helps Superman and Batman stop a Kryptonite meteor from destroying Earth.

EDITOR'S OPINION

While all the actors did a terrific job portraying Toyman as immature, childish villains, the best for me were Bud Cort and John DiMaggio. They made Toyman sound more creepy and disturbing. The exception is Calvin Tran, who plays the third Toyman. He plays him more as a young, naive genius.

I'm changing to Tom Gibis. While I do love bud Corts serious and creepy portrayal. I can tell Tom is having so much fun in this role, and his voice fits the immature manchild fantastically well. Plus I just love the characterization of him in JLAATIT

Wow, had no idea that was Tom Gibis. Sticking with Bud Cort, though.

Tom Gibis is pretty good, he's the childish version but did seem to not only be funny but could have gone creepy

Frank Welker will always be Toyman to me. Richard Green, Calvin Tran, and Matt Hislope were good to.
the DCAU Toyman actuality turned me off from the character for awhile

I wonder if Tom Kenny would make a good Toyman?

1. Bud Cort - An incredibly creepy voice. Sounds like a precise balance between a child and an adult, and the delivery is spot on.
2. Corey Burton - Imitates Bud Cort, but also makes it sound his own. Very well done.
3. Richard Green - A Wallace Shawn impression, which is how I imagine Toyman to sound.
4. John DiMaggio - Sounds like a creepy, menacing child molester, but the voice is a bit too naturally gruff.
5. Frank Welker - Frank clearly enjoyed himself in this role, and he fits the childish jester persona well.
6. Cameron Bowen - Average. Does sound convincingly like a manchild.
7. Matt Hislope - TRIES to sound like a manchild, but his tone has no range. He's stuck on whiny mode.
8. Calvin Tran - I wanna hear ToyMAN, not Toy Boy!

@VctrBnsn What did you like about Cameron? It isn't but not as good as the others. I wish Peter MacNiol played him. Officially he didn't but Professor Ivo was a bit Toymanish.

@VctrBnsn Never mind the Cameron part. I did think it was Jason though. What did you think of Corey.

@pete I think Cameron worked pretty good for the little part he got. He has higher points for me because I couldn't tell he was Robin's voice actor.

As for Corey, he was an OK Bud impression, but it was a tad bit forced.

@pete I like that Cameron's young but deepened his voice so that he actually sounds convincing as an overgrown kid.

I'm going with Bud Cort. He was pretty creepy as Toyman. John iMaggio is good too. Calvin Tran is good as the Hiro Okamura Toyman.

@coolgeek176 I didn't know that was Cameron. It doesn't sound like his Tim to me. I don't really like it. I'm sticking with Bud Cort.

I prefer Corey Burton as he has more childish lines like "Rain rain go away little Johnny wants to play" or "Superman go bye bye". I wished he played him more in some non DCAU material. That said I like Bud Cort as well as he seems like a creepy killer doll. John Dimaggio is a great creepy Toyman as well but his is more deranged in addition to creepy. I don't really like the non-creepy versions but out of them Frank Welker was the best as his sounded like a trickster which his version was.

I prefer a creepy version of the Winslow Schott Toyman and in that regard, I'm gonna go with John DiMaggio. Yeah, Bud Cort's version was creepy, too, but I thought John DiMaggio's was creepier, so I'm going with him. Corey Burton was okay, but not anywhere as creepy as DiMaggio or Cort. I also liked Calvin Tran as the Hiro Okamura Toyman

I really don't like Matt Hislope and Richard Green as Toyman. Something about them donesn't feel right, even for not-so-creepy versions.

@Anicomicgeek If Toyman isn't it something as good he won't be as good neither will he be as creepy. At least that's the way it seems to me.

On second thought, Bud Cort is indded better, so I'm changing my vote to him.

I liked Cameron Bowen as Tim Drake; I don't like his Toyman. Yeah, I'm sticking with Bud Cort.

Normally, I should go with the original Bud Cort, but for some reason Corey did a very good imitation and was a little more of a "toy" with the character, so i guess Ill go with him.
pete

@AMT Yeah he sounded more childish than Cort.
