Would you want them to bring back Peter Cullen for a hypothetical reboot?

    Dreamworks/Paramount/Hasbro decide to go the reboot route with the TF films, with a summer 2016 release in mind. Would you want them bring back Peter Cullen for another round of films?

    I'd say yes in a heartbeat, and for that matter, I'd want to see Frank Welker continue on as Soundwave. Also wouldn't mind him getting another chance at voicing Megatron using the 'Prime' version of that voice.

    Since rebooting doesn't make much sense, if it was going to be done there's no reason to keep anything the same.

    All I really hope they keep is Bay's stylization, along with minimal Geewun fanwanking.

    Kinda torn. Cullen is Prime, we can't dispute that. But on the other hand, keeping Cullen kind of partially goes against the purpose of rebooting.

    For a reboot, I'd probably bring him back, but in a different role...either as a lower-key version of Ironhide or a similar old-roughneck-type role, as sort of a mentor figure to Optimus.

    IMO if you're gonna reboot, the principal cast should factor in, and in this case I'd include the 'main' robots in that bunch as well.

    I'm amused that so many people think keeping Cullen goes against the idea of rebooting.

    That's only true for live action.

    Peter Cullen is a super nice guy so I'd never say no to any sort of work he can get.

    Met him at Botcon I would pitch a fit if he gets snubbed at a role to play Prime. He already got snubbed for one of his favorite roles and that's Eeyore, and he was great for that cartoon. Prime is Cullen, he's in the hall of fame for crying out loud. If he retires thats one thing but if he's still available I say they better give it to the man. On a side note I dont want to see anything close to a reboot. Keep the style, tweak it if you must but give it to JJ Abrams and call it good.

    you do know with out "g1" there would be no transformers correct? everyone seems to forget this.

    that being said, I don't mind the bot designs as much as I used to, I have adjusted to them. My problem with bay is he can't tell a damned story, he always has to do stupid crap to get in the way. the basic plot synopsizes of the first two movies were solid, the non-humor humor killed them

    Heh.. upon thinking of that, that would kick endless ass!

    I'd say if they reboot, go with Gary Chalk this time.

    Hrm, the ole mirror univ./shattered glass route would be cool for.. an episode or two of a cartoon, or a section of a movie not a whole film series, you would (probably) lose attention of a lot of folks after the first one.
