    Every single version of the MP-01 mold, and the new MP-10.

    The man deserves more, but it's the least we could do.

    Crap, I thought this was a list of the voice actors in Dark of the Moon.

    But nevertheless, it's good to hear another interview from Cullen. I myself feel a bit moved that a soldier gave Cullen his emblem. I mean, wow, how can the poor guy react? It's like that mother at Botcon 2010, I believe, who said she raised her deceased son on his Optimus voice, and said, "You are the soul of Optimus Prime."

    Hearing stories like these makes me smile, and even if Cullen is giving a wooden performance as Prime, I know Peter Cullen is more kickass then all Optimus Prime's combined as just a person. :bay

    I think if Cullen wanted a new Optimus figure he'd have one. Sounds more like the one he has is special to him for sentimental reasons. Can you imagine how much his broken toy would auction for?

    Cullen is the greatest TF actor of all time. He is Optimus Prime.

    I thanked Mr. Cullen for his influence on me as a kid over on his Facebook page. The fact that he took the time to respond to me with his own thanks amazed me. He's one of the three people from the media of my childhood who I hope to one day meet (the other two being William Shatner and Micheal Keaton)

    Words will never be enough to express just how much Peter Cullen means to this Fandom and me personally. He is the man.
