EDITOR'S OPINION

Okay folks here is a VC for the Autobot Sentinel Prime as you can see two Autobots with similar designs but different personalities.

In the original G1 series Sentinel Prime made a special cameo appearance late in the series in the episode "Five Faces of Darkness Part 4". In which his scenes are provided by flashbacks as a Gladiator whom was used to fight for the Quintessons amusement but became one of the Primes whom fougth for Cybertron's freedom and was the previous Prime that came before Optimus Prime. In those flashback scenes in which his voice was used for Narration it was done by VA Jack Angel, and while its fairly easy to tell that Jack voiced Sentinel it does work fairly well for a former Gladiator turned Freedom Fighter. While those were all the lines Sentinel got in the series Jack did make fairly good use of them.

In Transformers Animated he has a much bigger part and is around with Optimus Prime, unfortunately however he is well lets just say known as any synonym of "Arrogant Douchebag" you can think of. (Not too mention on how some have even went so far as to wonder if he is the closest thing to an Autobot version of Starscream). Sentinel is voiced by VA Townsend "The Tick" Coleman and say what you will about TFA Sentinel Prime himself but Townsend did deliver a good performance that suited Sentinel Prime. Whether it was Sentinel as a pompous braggart or seriously "Lawful Stupid", Townsend's performance was by all means fitting for the role and is one of Townsend's better performances.

Overall I am not entirely sure which to go with here as both performances were very good.

I wonder if Victor Garber would do a good Sentinel Prime?

I didn't like Dark of the Moon. However, I still think the true best of the bunch would have to be Nimoy. He's one of the few great aspects of the movie. I mean, it's Leonard Nimoy....you can't go wrong with that!

I believe that the creators of TFA intended to make one of the most despised characters of all time. And Coleman was the right one for the job. Yes, say what you will about his persona, but Townsend did a damn good performance.

Still, Nimoy is the superior choice for me.

Er... Nimoy is the obvious choice for me.

Nimoy is one reason my Dark of the Moon is excellent. Well, I think so anyway.

Leonard Nimoy easily, his performance and quotes are just brilliant.
Townsend Coleman sounds too young and whiny for me.
Jack Angel is OK, but rather boring imo.

@Torak In defense of Townsend Coleman's Sentinel, he is supposedly to be inneffective and a peer of Optimus's rather than a predecessor like in other continuities.

@Anicomicgeek Just goes to show you how awesome Optimus is! And that is just what I think of Townsend as Sentinel, no offense.

I can't really vote. They're different characters with the same name. Townsend Coleman and Leonard Nimoy are my favorite here.

@ConfusedPhantom I agree 100%. Though I'm edging a bit towards Townsend because his take was the most entertaining.

Leonard Nimoy is vastly superior over the other voice actors his Sentinel Prime is menacing yet very honorable all at once!Leonard gave the finest vocal performance of 2011 when it comes to mainstream Hollywood voice work!

Can't wait until Nimoy's SP is up there. I'll vote THE HECK out of it! :D And there's so many awesome, epic, lengthy audio clips to choose from too! He'll definitely be getting my vote.

@TylerMirage I mentioned this before, but I totally agree with you, he was the best thing about Dark of the Moon for sure.

Townsend Coleman for me also.

The one in WFC was terrible, and I had no idea that SP was in FFOD...
