Voice Compare » Transformers » Metroplex
Comparision of the voice over actors who have been the voice of Metroplex with sound clips and images.
Metroplex is one of the various Autobots from the Transformers franchise whom made his speaking role debut in the original Transformers series. There are two different versions of Metroplex over the course of the Transformers franchise that will be covered here in this VC (but to be fair they are not REALLY different though). Metroplex is still known as a gigantic Transformer whom is genuinely heroic and will aid the Autobots to fight the Decepticons. However in the original G1 series Metroplex is the Robot form of Autobot City (whom has a rivalry with Trypticon) while in Transformers Cybertron he is the calm and intelligent leader of the Transformers on the planet of Gigantion.

EDITOR'S OPINIONToday on the Transformers VC section we take a look at one of the biggest Autobots of all... METROPLEX! Lets take a little look here...
Bud Davis- Bud's voice is a little bit too inconsistent, his voice that he used for the role at first was a rough deep voice that worked with the role rather well (as his performance for the role would follow suit). While Bud's voice for the role did sound suitably rough later on his voice got considerably lighter. But still Bud's work on the role was a pretty good example of the voice work in the show nevertheless.
Rick Thomas- Rick's voice for the role was WAY too high for the role here granted I suppose Rick's performance for the role was passable enough but his voice for the role just doesn't work.
Ron Halder- This was a fairly interesting change of pace for Ron Halder here as he does a fairly low, rough voice and does one of the better attempts at a Scottish accent in the show in which Ron actually makes a pretty good attempt at somehow making the idea of Metroplex with a Scottish accent work. Ron's performance does work with how Metroplex is portrayed in the show as a calm. intellgient, firm and caring leader pretty well. (That and Ron does have a slight advantage on how Metroplex is a lot more talkative in Cybertron than he was in the G1 series.)
Overall as far as G1 Metroplex goes I am clearly going with Bud Davis, but I also genuinely liked Ron Halder's take on the role as well.
