    When I first heard Scott Mcneil I was too young to realize who he was, or even that there was a person playing that part. It was in The New Adventures of He-Man when I was just a little 4 year old girl. As time went on, I was unknowingly a fan of this man named Scott Mcneil. In 1996 I found a show called Beast Wars. He was Rattrap, Dinobot, Waspinator, and Silverbolt. These three voices were so different yet they were all him. It is strange to believe even to this day that he is in fact all four of those characters. I still had done no research on Scott as a person yet and still didn't know that he was even in existence. Then I found the anime known as Monster Rancher, where Scott played Suezo. This voice did somewhat remind me of Rattrap but I did not really think that he was the same person. Then when the anime thing really came in and I saw Gundam Wing and Inuyasha I realized that this guy had been in my life since 1990. I finally did the research and found out that this man was the most talented voice actor in the world. He can change his voice in an instant and he is as nice as can be to all the fans he comes across. He is an amazing actor and we are only lucky to have him around! He is in fact the best voice actor (if not actor) in the world!moreless

    I know its weird but I loved his voice FoReVeR and could pick it out of ANY cartoon I watched that he voice acted in, I was always able to tell which voice was his even without knowing he was even a voice acter for that cartoon. Then in 2004, I saw him at Otakucon in miami and almost fainted. He WaS HoT lmao!!! If you wanna see a picture of him, you can go to my myspace page and see him in my picture section. It's www.myspace.com/iamthemanda ^ just a side note, this review box, for sum reason, puts a space in my myspace name so when you cut and paste that link, it wont work. Just replace iamtheman da with iamthemanda and it will work.moreless
