EDITOR'S OPINION

Blitzwing, another one of the many violent Decepticons in the Transformers franchise with some occasional showings of "Temporary Insanity" lets just say.

In the original series he was voiced by the late great Ed Gilbert, while his Blitzwing voice is not exactly one of the most distinct voices in the series it is still fitting and his overall performance as Blitzwing was not bad.

In Transformers Animated he was voiced by Bumper Robinson in which in this show Blitzwing is a triple changer with a schizophrenia to match as he can go from coldly stoic, violent brute to a just plain flat-out comically nutty lunatic (alongside a German accent as well). And Bumper certainly did well as all 3 voices fit all 3 of personalities well. Heck to be honest I actually find this his work as Blitzwing to be one of his better performances in general.

But still while both of them are good I am going with Bumper Robinson a bit more here.

TFA Blitzwing was such a wonderfully bonkers character. I loved how distinct Bumper Robinson made each voice of his distinct, the icy Blitzwing, The Hotheaded (Ahnold) Blitzwing and the Crazy Blitzwing and he was hilarious with all three of the faces/personalities. This is easily one of the major standouts Animated which says a lot IMO.

The rest are OK but not in Bumper's league.

Ed Gilbert does have the most depth next to Bumper, he was hilarious in Triple Takeover especially with this line. "Tell me what's on your mind, or I'll splatter it all on that wall and see for myself." That Is BRUTAL!

David Boat does well at emulating the late Ed Gilbert, he also sort of reminds me of Michael Donovan's Dirt Boss.

Alex Easley is nothing special in the slightest.

BONUS: I've been thinking that either Ian James Corlett or Brad Swaile should voice Blitzwing at some point, both can do excellent German accents and I think it'd be interesting to see them stretch their range just a bit. I could also see Daran Norris or Liam O'Brien fitting perfectly too.

Both Ed and David do a good job, but Bumper is just so much more memorable in this role in comparison.

It's hard to make an argument that the other three come even close to Bumper's take, his is just the most distinct portrayal and the one with the most personality.

1) Ed Gilbert: His take was one of the most endearing ones in the original cartoon. In season 2 and the movie, he nailed the brutish and violent personality of Blitzwing, but in season 3, he added some sort of nobility, loyalty and honor to the character which really made me appreciate him more. A pretty great performance overall.

2) David Boat: He does a neat job at channeling Gilbert. He really sounds violent and brutish.

3) Bumper Robinson: Pretty quirky and a lot of fun. HE TALKS LIKE AHNOLD!!!! Pretty fun performance from a rather mixed show.

4) Alex Easley: Pretty forgettable.

Sticking with Bumper Robinson, but Dave Boat does a decent job emluating Ed Gilbert.

The only character keeping Blitzwing out of the #1 spot on my favourites list is Starscream. Bumper Robinson's performance was by far the most memorable of the three. I love the accent and the variations in the voice when he switches personalities.

Robinson's Blitzwing performance I think is very one-of-a-kind. All 3 personalities are very distinct but still share a common voice, and both factors are VERY effective. He has my vote.

I wonder of Dee Bradley Baker would make a good Blitzwing?

I'd kinda like to see how Ed would voice Generations Blitzwing sense it has a G1 design and 3 faces. Bumper was doing 3 different voices for the same character.

Gotta go with Bumper, though I would like to see Liam O'Brien take a crack at Blitzwing.

@Anicomicgeek

I have agreed with most of your other votes/opinions but I have to disagree with this one. To me the way they did Blitzwing in Animated resulted in one of the worst vocal performances of the entire series. Could not stand it!

Robinson's definitely more distinctive and memorable, so I'm going with him.

G1 Blitzwing was cool, but the Animated one is more memorable.
