EDITOR'S OPINIONOkay 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.
