Peter Cullen Discusses Transformers Prime's Final Season and Transformers 4 - IGN
Ya news credit #2!
Awesome. I love hearing from the stars of Transformers.
Very nice. Guess that confirms that Prime is back for #4, and I can't wait to see what happens in this season of tfp:bh
Peter Cullen Talks TF4 & Beast Hunters
Peter Cullen Talks TRANSFORMERS PRIME Finale And Returning For TRANSFORMERS 4
Interesting that he doesn't sound like he thinks Prime is exactly ending. Not going to read to deeply into that, but odd.
Odds are him and Welker will be back for the next show if it's a sequel, and they probably know more than they're letting on if a sequel series is already in preproduction.
That doesn't really mean anything. All he is really saying is Transformers will always tell another story, going in a different direction. If you look at the question, it is phrased as "is this an ending for Transformers?" rather than "Transformers Prime", which I think shapes his response.
Still worth paying attention to as I'm personally of the view that the next series will be in the same universe, but this isn't the silver bullet sealing that deal IMO.
I wouldn't mind if it's a sequel series. Honestly with all the time and effort put into the CG models, they can easily re-use them and then focus most of the budget on new enviroments and characters.
Honestly the sequel series could be like Energon is to Armada (but off course better)
Cullen is lookin real Pimp these days, bless his soul, da dude deserves it
Cullen: Some very brilliant, genius people, years ago, conceived this idea that drilled a great space into youthful imagination and it has stayed alive all these years because it is something that had never been done before...
Yeah, NEVER been done before. That's why I was collecting Gobots before Transformers came along. Because it was never done before the Transformers.
I still think the current Prime iteration is dead and will have a satisfying ending (as we've been promised) by the end of Beast Hunters episode 16. But that this will also naturally lead into the next iteration/phase of Transformers in toon form. Most likely utilizing a new aesthetic for the bot character designs, cast of human characters, and overall direction. If they're smart- no reason to think they aren't- it will align pretty well with whatever direction movie 4 is going in. Just holds with logic that this is what they'll do, since this is also 'pretty much' what they did before Prime was launched.
Dead is kinda a harsh word to use dude.
Im pretty sure he was referring to the writers that fleshed out the Lore and made it so memorable. Not the actual toys.
Robots have been a part of science fiction for hundreds of years, way before Gobots were thought of. Transformers just happened to get IT right. With personalities and traits that resonated perfectly at the time. Cullen is right, Transformers sparked the imagination of many. That's why you see reissues of Optimus Prime & Megatron, and none of Leader-1 or Cy-kill.
Yeah, Gobots were the true success story. Not this Transformers mess. Transformers is just a fad and will go away pretty soon. Gobots will rule the toy world.
Cullen : Legend. Always my hero.
Technically Gobots did come first... and the Transformers actually stole their idea. It was then a matter of them battling it out and Transformers was more popular due to the 'lore' that they introduced.
I want to shake that man's hand so badly.
they were both in development at the same time, Tonka simply rushed theirs out to market first.
I would be like Smokescreen, when he first met Optimus Prime. ^_^ Oh to met like Peter Cullen would be the most awesome thing ever. Damn it, why do I have to be so poor. T_T
