It is sad that we must report that Robert Smith, known by Transformers fans as the voice of Cybertron Soundwave, has died at the age of 67. Garry Chalk, (Cybertron Optimus Prime) tells us on Smith's Facebook page that he had pancreatic and liver cancer.

Robert also voiced characters from well known anime titles, including Genma Saotome, Ranma's father in "Ranma 1/2". Robert was a power lifter and enjoyed wrestling in his free time.

Rest in peace, Robert Smith.

I like his incarnation of Soundwave, it was probably more engaging and entertaining than the usual ones. Shame he lost the battle really, I would have liked to see him back to this franchise.

And by the looks of it, definitely a character.

Thought there was already a topic on this though. Oh well, more awareness.

:-( i like his soundwave but the effects that was added to his voice sound like it was on the radio with static in background without effects added would have been better
