EDITOR'S OPINIONAlright folks here is another VC for another one of the Decepticon Seekers and this time its the other more Brutish seeker whom is none other than Skywarp.
Skywarp is one of the original 3 seekers in the original series and while he is not as prominently remembered as Starscream (or heck even Thundercracker is a bit more remembered) but his screen time was not too bad in the original series. Skywarp was voiced by current "Voice God" Frank Welker though as awesome as Frank Welker is this is only pretty good. Namely on how his Skywarp voice is just simply his Rumble voice only a bit lower but to be fair it does still fairly work with Skywarp's persona though as "Tough-mannered thug". Though in retrospection one of the better parts of Frank Welker's performance is when Skywarp mocks Starscream. But still while its not a bad performance its not one of Frank's most memorable on that show.
In Transformers Animated, Skywarp was one of the various Starscream clones in which they were all voiced by Tom Kenny (except for Slipstream voiced by Tara Strong whom is the sole female clone). All of the Starscream clones were given a certain personality aspect of Starscream and Skywarp got his cowardice. While its not all that great but to be fair Tom Kenny was basically told to "do your Starscream voice but make him sound incredibly timid" in which Tom did get the job done at least. Which to make a long story short this is another average performance from a good VA.
And last but not least is Richard Epcar in Transformers War for Cybertron, in which this Skywarp is more like his G1 counterpart which is fairly nice I suppose. Richard ends up doing one of his gruffer voices for Skywarp but while its not bad I would more picture it for someone like Thundercracker than Skywarp. (And yes I am aware that Thundercracker was depicted as a calm-speaking intellectual in that game but still.) However to be fair Richard's performance as Skywarp does fairly suit the persona at least so its alright but its not one of the better performances in that game.
Overall all of them were alright and I suppose I would go with Frank Welker the most but none of these 3 performances are exactly a highlight for their respective VAs.
