    Just wondering if anyone on the boards has ever met Peter Cullen, or even asked him a question at a convention panel. I'd love to hear some stories! :)

    I've never had the pleasure of meeting him, but I have heard some stories from interviews and youtube vids:
    -Apparently for years and years after G1 was finished he had no idea there was a fan following until he went to a Botcon

    -When he auditioned for Prime for the movie, the woman reading the script with him was doing Ironhide, he interrupted and said (more or less) "Excuse me, do you mind if I voice Ironhide? I did the original voice" :p 

    -He never seems to get tired of saying "Transform and Roll Out!"

    -At the most recent Botcon, a girl (I think?) actually asked him about Optimus/Megatron slash fiction. I don't know the rest of the story, hopefully someone can fill that in that were at the panel

    I have, but then the charges were laid.

    Our love is stronger than your restraining order. :p

    HA. Oh god, I feel so bad for him.

    He seems like such a sweet little guy though. I'd love to personally tell him how amazingly talented he is...and of course, get a picture with him :)

    I got to meet him twice at two different BotCons. I found him to be incredibly polite and sweet. I remember that he biffed an autograph on one of my items at BotCon 2004 and insisted on giving me a third one on another item (autograph limit was two per person and strictly enforced) to compensate. I tried shaking his hand both times only to get hugs instead. He's a class act all the way.

    I met him twice. The guy is so genuine and down to earth. He's shorter than I envisioned but for what he lacks in height he makes up for in sweetness 10 fold. At the first show I met him at my brother made a special Optimus Prime poster for the occasion. He said it was the best rendition of Prime he'd ever seen :cool:  And after he autographed our posters he asked my brother to autograph his :D

    He does Botcon every couple of years (including this past summer), so there's definitely opportunities to meet him on the convention circuit.

    I personally haven't had the chance yet, so I don't really have any stories.

    Yep. Met and visited with him outside the hotel at BC07 and at the signing. He's a class act, and repeatedly expressed his appreciation for the fans.

    I so want to meet him, he has a great smile. I would record him saying "Autobots, Transform and roll out!"

    He's a classy dude, it's such a shame he has to put up with the questions and antics of the shit-for-brains in this fandom.

    Never got the chance to meet Peter Cullen. I've just been unable to get to BotCon.

    That's something I hope to do... someday...

    Ain't it the truth? At the signing, I actually apologized to him for the person that had gone just before me.

    Yes, twice.

    Once was outside of the hotel in Lexington at Botcon where he told me not to lose my Scottish accent.
