I have to say the voices are so distinctly different in this compare that it is really hard to determine my favorite. Let me attempt to break it down.

I definitely do not like the Next Mutation version by Mendel or the Turtles 3 version by Murray. I will easily put those two at the bottom.

I also don't like Dunstan's take very much from the 2003 cartoon. I realize he was trying to sound deep and spiritual like Splinter should but you can tell that he is a younger voice actor in that making Splinter sound 'old' comes across as fake.

I was very surprised that I actually like the Video Game voice by Scammel and the 87 Turtles Forever voice by Wills. They both do a good job getting that deep tone that we love from Splinter. I like Scammel slightly more than Wills here though.

Of course Reneday is the classic voice I remember but I must say that he sounds the least 'sensei' like out of the top voices here.

At the top i have Mako from the CGI Movie and Kevin Clash from the first two live action movies.

In the end when I think of Splinter I hear Kevin Clash, so he is the winner for me: 1st: Clash, 2nd: Mako, 3rd: Reneday, 4th: Scammel, 5th: Wills, 6th: Dunstan, 7th: Murray, 8th: Mendel
