    With all the complaints about Optimus being boring might as well fully discuss it. Do you find Optimus Prime boring in TF: Prime? I don't. I truly don't understand the complaints about him. This is how Optimus is, the big wise powerful leader. Maybe he like this from all the grief of losing his entire home planet! I think that would be a good reason to always be serious about stoping the enemies who did that.

    So anyways do like Optimus in Prime?

    I do because he is OPTIMUS PRIME the great leader, role model, father figure, childhood hero that i think of when i hear Optimus Prime

    I voted #2. Just glad to be able to watch a current TF show with him in it and still have Peter Cullen into it. :)

    I voted number three. I don't hate him; he's too boring for me to hate. So, he's just there.

    (Which is funny in a show named after him).

    After seeing Animated Optimus Prime, TFP Prime is not even at 1% on my like level.

    TFP Prime makes Ben Stein look like a drunk college student.

    IMO he's OK, but I liked him better as Orion Pax.

    Peter Cullen needs to stay far away from Optimus.

    No. I'm so damn tired of the whole all-knowing, wise, military commander Optimus Prime voiced by Peter Cullen. Having Peter Cullen back for the movies was cool and all, but goddamn has it gotten tiring as hell. Every single damn thing that comes out of this character's mouth now sounds like a movie trailer narration and it's boring.

    No. He's boring and the voice direction for him sucks. Being wise and/or serious doesn't mean you have to be monotone all the damn time. And people say he's serious yet he barely give two craps when his troops constantly disobey him. BW and the movies did a much better job of portraying a wise/serious Optimus.

    I love his design, his VA (obviously) and how he's portrayed.

    It's just a shame that because of his role he ends up seeming boring sometimes because he's always keeping himself in check.

    he could show a little emotion!

    But when he's out there most of the screen time, he's great to watch.

    Sadly, I'm going to have to agree with this.

    This really is the worst TV version of Optimus we've ever gotten.

    I hate him. He's so boring, has no character, and even sounds bored.

    It's like they recorded Cullen's lines while he was asleep.

    This. So far for the entire run of TFP, the two best lines Optimus has had are:

    "Umm, no." (I can't remember the exact episode, but I believe it is from Season 1)

    "I'm fine. How are you?" (Season 2, "Grill")

    On those two occasions, I lol'd. Everything else he's done has been boring as f*ck.

    And with the Hub re-airing the full run of the Animated series, it's really making it apparent how poorly written, charmless and stale Transformers: Prime is.

    I don't mind him, but some kind of flashback explaining how he became so morally aware would still be great for his character.
