    With all the different opinions I've seen on this website i want to see who people favorite Optimus Prime voice is. Defiantly for Optimus Prime it is Peter Cullen he is the classic father figure heroic voice that fits perfectly. Garry Chalk is a VERY CLOSE second. For me Chalk is Optimus Primal and fits that role Perfect! To me Cullen should be Prime and Chalk Primal.

    Cullen. The only Prime with any depth and character in his voice alone. Doesn't matter what line he gives, it always sounds inspiring.

    Chalk? I have no problem with Cullen or Kaplan, I find Kaye annoying, and I don't care for the others.

    So far? Chalk. Cullen just seems to read his lines nowadays, but that could be because no one's giving him the opportunity to emote in the role(barring WFC, since he actually showed a little personality in that).

    I'd like to see someone else tackle the role soon, TBH. And not a Cullen imitator.

    Peter Cullen. Chalk and Kaye were good, but Cullen will always be Prime in my eyes.

    Actually Peter Cullen and Gary Chalk tie imo but I chose Peter in a very narrow win.

    Garry Chalk. Cullen is good when there isn't crappy voice directing like there is in Prime.

    I grew up with Kaye as Megatron, so I guess I grew up with Chalk.

    Cullen > Chalk

    As for David Kaye he strikes me more of a voice for Orion Pax more then Optimus himself.

    G1 Optimus Prime (Peter Cullen). I like the younger sound of Cullen's Prime voice from the 80's.

    Peter Cullen, but I prefer his older voice work in G1 over his current voice.
