    As of the second episode of RID2015 Peter Cullen has voiced Optimus Prime in 140 episodes. This is if we are not counting Season 5 and Generation 2 to count as anything. Gary Chalk voiced Optimus Prime for 153 episodes in the Unicron Trilogy. So in another 13 episodes Peter Cullen will tie Chalk. Of course Peter Cullen has voiced Prime in more movies and video games. But Gary chalk did more episodes still as Primal for the Beast Era.

    Peter Cullen
    G1: 68
    Prime: 58
    Rescue Bots: 18 (S4E4)
    Rid15: 13 (episode 39)

    Gary Chalk
    Armada: 51
    Energon:50
    Cybertron: 52

    What are your thoughts of the amount of episodes they lent their voice to Optimus Prime? Just an interesting fact for anyone. Also lets keep anything after episode 2 of RID2015 out here please.

    Actually, probably best to keep the topic/discussion on anything from G1 to TFA in this forum, we have a TFP and Movie forum to discuss all those stats.

    I guess the only one good thing about RID2015 ending, is that Cullen won't be able to beat Chalk's record for another year or two.
    I really hope they bring Chalk back. He IS Prime.

    Hate to break the news to you, but if Optimus is in two more episodes, he will beat Chalk.

    That's just Prime
    Hopefully Chalk returns to voice Oprimus Prime in the next series, and Cullen finally retires. It's time to pass the mantle.

    No it isn't..... and the battle goes on ad nauseum. :D 

    Agree that Chalk was pretty good as Primal, but normally I prefer Cullen over Chalk.

    Chalk is a great primal, but i've always thought he was a terrible prime, in my opinion. they are two totally different characters. even if they do fill the same role. his Prime, he was trying TOO hard to be like Cullen. I would have preferred if he was more like Primal.

    Peter Cullen also voiced a lot of other characters in G1, so that should be taken into account

    Gary Chalk was the Prime of my childhood, so he holds a special place in my heart...but I think I still prefer Cullen, especially with more recent portrayals.

    Though my memory is kinda fuzzy on Chalk; really ought to get Armada's box set one of these days...
