Trailbreaker has had a relatively secondary appearance in the Franchise in general but does have a memorable enough impact in which he isn't a total obscurity.

In the original series he was one of the SEVERAL roles that Frank Welker has had in the show while Trailbreaker wasn't one of Frank's most memorable roles (but to be fair they were generally Decepticons) but Frank has done well enough. Frank's Trailbreaker voice did have a slight southern accent (apparently didn't want to be outdone by his good buddy Peter Cullen whom is practically a master at Southern accents in that show) but Frank's work did fit well for Trailbreaker. While its not quite as memorable as Frank Welker's handiwork as Mirage it is another example that Frank can voice another friendly Autobot well.

Trailbreaker didn't really get another English speaking role again until the game based off of the first Transformers movie (and even then only on the PSP version) where he is voiced by VA Steve Blum. Granted lets just say its not hard to tell that Steve Blum is voicing Trailbreaker here but its not necessarily all that bad as his work is OK and his performance is not too bad.

Overall both are good but I do kind of prefer Frank Welker more in this case. (But to be fair both performances were only a decent examples of their respective VAs otherwise fine careers.)

Oh hey this voice compare is Prime Megatron vs Prime Starscream.

Anyways I do like Trailbreaker...Mostly for his FORCE FIELD!

Not really much to say but of the two I'd say Frank Welker has the advantage here, he's done a lot more in the role than say Steve Blum, so I'm going with Frank.

BONUS: Whenever I read him in the IDW comics, I actually imagine him sounding like the Engineer from either Grant Goodeve or Nolan North would be my next choice to voice him.

Boy, Steve Blum needs another go as Trailbreaker. He's a good choice for him, but is rather lackluster here. Gotta go with Frank Welker. His Trailbreaker voice was cool.
