EDITOR'S OPINIONMenasor, whether you know him as a gigantic Decepticon that's actually a gestalt with a Hulk-speak Speech pattern or a Gigantic Decepticon that's actually a disgruntled worker with a slightly rough British accent this is his Voice Compare.
In the original series he has had 2 VAs, first off was the late Roger Carmel who voiced him in the majority of Menasor right from the start. Roger Carmel's acting isn't really bad but while the original Transformers series is known for using special Vocal effects on Character voices well (such as Soundwave) this is sadly a bit of an exception. His Menasor voice was modified pretty heavily in which it can at times be hard to even tell what Menasor is even saying.
Though in "Five Faces of Darkness" the also late Regis Cordic voiced Menasor in his rather small appearance there and its not bad. Sure I would've pictured Menasor's voice to be lower but other than that its alright, though one thing that helped is that they didn't bother to modify Regis' Menasor voice which in this case is a good thing.
Menasor didn't really appear again until Transformers Cybertron where is he voiced by Ocean Group VA Sam Vincent. (Whom is the only one amongst the 3 VAs there that as of when this Voice Compare was made is still alive and well.) Sam Vincent is not a bad VA but he was pretty miscast here, I mean a slightly lower version of his Coby voice with a light British accent? Sam did try to give a good performance anyways but he was indeed rather miscast here.
Overall neither one of these are particularly great but I have going with Regis Cordic the most here.
