What's our newest voice compare for Transformers? Is it Blurr? Absolutely, positively, definitely!

Here's a little bit of trivia; one of the writers for Transformers was a huge fan of the famous fast-talker John Moschitta Jr., and wrote Blurr's personality specifically so Moschitta could be cast as him. Sure enough, he was! John Moschitta was the perfect fit for Blurr. He spoke so fast you'd think the voice was sped up artificially. In my opinion, he brought in one of the best performances in the show.

In Transformers Armada, a very different version of Blurr appears, voiced by Brian Drummond. And... I'm not the biggest fan of it. For one, he doesn't talk fast, which is disappointing. If it was someone else, this would be a good performance, but for Blurr, I'm sorry to say that Drummond was miscast.

For the Japan-only "Transformers: Call of the Future" game, Blurr talks fast again! However, the voice acting for that game is generally subpar, and Blurr is no exception, sounding rather nasal and annoying.

John Moschitta returned as Blurr for Transformers Animated, and though this incarnation of the character has a different air to him (he just says a lot of things quickly rather than repeating himself), it's still great to hear Moschitta come back after 20 years.

In conclusion, I'd say that Moschitta was by far the best. I still applaud Brian Drummond, but there's just no beating John Moschitta.

John Moschitta, no contest. I mean, Brian Drummond was fine; he was playing an entirely different character. As for the other two, well... considering the sources, their performances are pretty poor in general; and to put a nail in the coffin, they don't even speak fast (though Phil Gibbons at least made a [very poor] attempt).

John Moschitta FTW, however Brian Drummond did a good job for his completely unrelated version of Blurr, who was initially a lone wolf Autobot Sniper

John Moschitta. Got to pick a guy who can talk incredibly fast for a guy named Blurr. Brian Drummond did do very well with his version, but it was weird hearing a guy named Blurr speak so calm and collected.

John Moschitta, no contest.
But to be fair Brian was playing as a different version of the character, and with that in mind it was fine.

John Moschitta was perfectly cast as Blurr! Brian Drummond's... eh. To be fair, it's a different version of Blurr and the voice is good for that, but for Blurr overall, it doesn't fit. Phil Gibbon, while a fast talker unfortunately didn't do too well, then again the majority of the Tataki voices (minus Sixshot and Brainstorm) weren't well acted due to poor direction. The UVA.... DOES NOT FIT AT ALL. But I do wonder why he's not on the poll. Still, John gets my vote!

I wonder of Zach Braff would make a good Blurr?

John Mochitta has cemented himself perfectly as Blurr and his voice is one of the most memorable of Transformers voices.

Brian does an okay original voice and doesn't try to copy him.

I can't really say much about Phil or the UVA since they didn't have much to really work with.

Hey guys, not that it's gonna make an ounce of difference, but the choice for "Unknown Voice Actor" isn't available in the poll.

Just added in the clip for him in the infamous "RTM Dub" for him in the English dub Transformers Headmasters that was made in Hong Kong and shown for countries such as Malaysia and Singapore.

Overall yeah I agree that John Moschitta was indeed the best. And while Brian Drummond's performance was not bad but TF Armada Blurr was a fairly blatant case of "reusing older series names". And both of the Unknown Voice talent are fairly subpar in this role as well.
