    Peter Cullen never fails to amaze me with how dignified and humble his responses are. Mr. Cullen is truly an astounding actor, and a complete gentleman.

    I very much look forward to hearing his upcoming performances! :D

    I don't think any fan out there takes Optimus more seriously than Mr. Cullen does. You can claim it, but I won't believe you.

    Peter Cullen's responses never fail to convey immense humility and great wisdom. I take my hat off to the man, and hope he continues to be involved with this franchise for many years to come.

    Well, there's always that Bonita Prime woman...

    As for that person etc....Rule 14 keeps us from bringing that up..check it out! :thumb ..


    Otherwise, an awesome group of responses...love how after all the years he's voiced Optimus he still is so happy to be voicing him and feels honored to be a part of this fandom and so humble about his contribution. Nice all around good guy.

    *takes her hat off to him and :bowdown:  too*

    To quote the immeasurable Peter Cullen who himself quoted President Harry S. Truman, "It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit." =)

    The man, the legend. (Peter Cullen, not President Harry S. Truman, haha.) Great read!

    Someone should have warned me not to look up "Bonita Prime." I can't handle that much bad grammar and over-the-top, obsessive fanaticism. I had a friend once who was like that with Sasuke from the Naruto series and with Twilight. Whole flood of traumatic memories just came back....

    Some very good questions, and Mr. Cullen of course answered them wonderfully. I really hope I can meet the man someday. : )

    The one and only time I met him was at Botcon 2010. When I walked up, the first thing I told him was that he'd been an important part of my life since I was 12 years old (I'm 37 now). I cannot imagine how many times he's heard words to that effect over the last 20 years or so... and yet, when I said it he still seemed genuinely touched by it, as if it were the first time he'd ever heard anyone say such a thing to him. What I took away from that brief exchange is that he is a humble, gentle man who cares deeply for his fans and the impact he's had on each of their lives. As a TF fan, I feel proud to have such a kindhearted person be forever associated with Optimus Prime and Transformers as a whole.

    Mr. Cullen is one the greatest cartoon voices of all time. If there was a hall of fame for voiceovers he'd get my vote. He is Optimus Prime and always will be. No one can replace him. He's the reason why Optimus Prime is one of the greatest fictional characters.
