    Seems the guy got back to the spotlight of other studios since the movie. Glad about that. I was hoping the TFs heroes staff would talk to him and I hope he gets pick.

    Hmm. This is the first time I've heard his voice when he wasn't acting. I was surprised how little his "real" voice sounds like Optimus.

    Interesting. Looks like we're getting Optimus toys with his voice coming up.

    Also, what is it with the internet and lousy hosts?

    That's why they're VA or "Voice Actors" if that is the correct term. The VA for Megatron...is famous for lending his voice to other G1 characters such as Soundwave etc.

    VA for G1 Megatron is a man named Frank Welker, and he's pretty much a god in the VA industry. He's done over 500 roles, from nibbler in futurama to fred in scooby doo.

    And Peter Cullen has done a lot of roles that don't sound that much like him (like the predator in Predator), so I guess its just kind of a coincidence that Optimus Prime does.

    Basically, if there's a cartoon and there's some kind of lowish voiced animal on it, then 99% likely it's voiced by Welker.

    And, he does both of Nibbler's voices. The high pitched animal noises, and his anouncer guy voice when he reveals his true nature.

    Yeah, I was suprised that Frank Welker did so many voices - a really talented VA.

    So good hearing Mr. Cullen speak in the voice of Optimus and Ironhide again.
