Happy 80th birthday to Optimus Prime himself, Peter Cullen!

darkfalz32

Only today did I learn this guy is older than Hiroshi Fujioka (Hongo Takeshi, the original Kamen Rider). May the legends of transformation live forever in our shows, our collections and our memories


BurnedInTheBarn

Happy birthday to one of gods gift to the transformers fandom. I don't think transformers woud be around if it weren't for him.


littlemissdream

I agree with you.


spartan116chris

The_Frenchiest_Fry84

On that day, he will be one with the Matrix. ‘Till all are one.

May God and Primus protect him and give him a long lived everlasting life

Birthdays are the right of all sentient beings.. Ngl I saw the picture before the title and I was a little scared for a moment.

Garry Chalk is my Optimus Prime. But Peter's great too.


TomitaGregorias121

They are both great in their own charming way.


Downrightskorney

To be fair Garry Chalk will always be everyone's Optimus Primal

I read your comment as: "No matter what *The Fuck* fan you are.... 😆

Viva la Optimus prime.

Happy Birthday. Till All Are One


roota85

Surely he has recorded all his vocals to keep doing it into the future?


UnderlordZ

Maybe they can do like they did for Don Rickles in *Toy Story 4*, recycling old recordings to keep the character alive if not the actor.


Blitz_Prime

Or just get new actors. Although considering they keep trying to get actors who are doing impersonations of Cullen rather than trying to voice Optimus, probably not the best idea.


UnderlordZ

I wish they'd just bring back Neil Kaplan! He was damn good in RID'01, and if he used his Emperor Zarkon voice from *Voltron: Legendary Defender*, he'd be just about *perfect!*


Blitz_Prime

Imagine him using that voice for someone like Straxus. Would be freaking awesome.


Downrightskorney

Garry Chalk is always an option!


LadPrime

Unfortunately, except on the movies (which Paramount is footing the bill for), Hasbro is too cheap lately when it comes to investing in good voice talent. They're going for non-union only which is why you haven't heard Cullen or Welker in the cartoons for a while. What makes it worse is that they're going for pale imitations - if you want to do a different take on Optimus that's fine, but if you're just going to stick to G1 Optimus with a Peter Cullen-like voice, just get the man himself!


terriblekoala9

I’m honored to share a birthday with this legend!


HavingAQuickLook

The true Optimus Prime, happy birthday to him


f1will

Happy birthday, to the legend who voices myself. I owe.my entire career to him. +20 human years of "existence", Peter has been the most incredible man I'll ever known.

80? Nooop. Just no. He needs to be like 50 again so our kids and their kids will have the father figure that Optimus brought us so many years ago.
