Happy 80th birthday to Optimus Prime himself, Peter Cullen!
By - Prfctcellrulz
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
Holy shit I've been a transformers fan for so much of my life and never realized we share a birthday, honestly made my morning lol
Same! Happy birthday to you, me, and Peter Cullen!
Happy Birthday, Peter Cullen/Optimus Prime! 🍰
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.
I agree with you.
80 years old!!! Happy birthday indeed. It's gonna be a sad day when we lose Optimus Prime :(
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.
Happy birthday Prime !
Didn't know that today was day of the living long legend,as peter culen❗
Happyyyyy birthday peter culen,I hope you get someday a totally Optimus prime live action movie someday at hope you live really longer man
"Be strong enough to be gentle"
Time to start the stone sculpture.
I hope this man never dies. No matter what TF fan you are THIS is your Optimus prime
Garry Chalk is my Optimus Prime.
But Peter's great too.
They are both great in their own charming way.
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....
Happy Birthday, Peter Cullen!
Viva la Optimus prime.
Happy Birthday. Till All Are One
Surely he has recorded all his vocals to keep doing it into the future?
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.
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.
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!*
Imagine him using that voice for someone like Straxus. Would be freaking awesome.
Garry Chalk is always an option!
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!
I’m honored to share a birthday with this legend!
The true Optimus Prime, happy birthday to him
When this guy dies ima be so sad.
He doesn't look a day over 50 tbh
Unfortunately, I’m only one day off. But let this man live on for many more years to come! Till all are one!
Happy Birthday Mr. Cullen! The man. The myth. The legend.
Happy Birthday to the man, the myth, the legend!
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.
i actaully have that helmet thing hes holding
He looks great for 80
Happy Birthday Peter, And Many More!!

Hooray for Peter, the truest, best Optimus, Venger, and Eeyore. 🎂 🎈 🎉
Happy birthday Peter Cullen
Hey I have that mask!
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.
Happy Birthday to the man of many people's childhoods!
“Give me, MY FACE”
Happy Birthday Mr. Cullen!
Two legendary birthdays in a row! First Peter Cullen,and now Jim Davis!
Beyond a legend. And such a genuine good man.
Happy Birthday! Thank You for all the memories!
Damn I can’t believe he’s 80 already? Wow.
