    Hello again all. I had heard awhile back that Mr. Peter Cullen is writing his autobiography. I just wondered if anyone else thought it would be a good idea if he read the audiobook version in his Optimus Prime voice.

    Personally, I think it would sell like hotcakes if he did. I know I'd have to buy several copies! What do you guys think? If you think it is a good idea, and you are lucky enough to be going to Botcon 2007 (lucky things!) pass the suggestion on to Mr. Cullen for me. Thanks so much everyone!

    If he did do that, then Frank Welker should write an autobiography and read it in the voice of Dr Claw.

    I'd much rather Mr. Cullen display all his voice talents for his characters as he mentions them. Still it would be a must buy too if he was "totally Optimus Prime".

    Actually, I think he should "READ" his autobiography on CD and MP3. I'd fall asleep to it every night instead of music :D

    You people are weird.


    I never knew he made an autobiography, though it makes sense he would.

    His normal voice sounds enough like Prime as is. I'd just want to hear the audio CD of his autobiography period. And maybe he'd natually slip into more of a Prime voice for the chapters where he actually talks about Transformers.

    He should do it like he does interviews, by jumping in and out of the voices he's describing.

    Yes, I'd figure he wouldn't read the would biography in just one voice. He is a talented VA after all.

    I think he should read it as Eeyore.

    Some examples of the voices he contributed wouldn't be bad, but why not let Cullen read Cullen's autobiography as Cullen.

    That's pretty cool, I would definitely pick it up.

    So....the only thing Cullen has done is Prime? Wow, I'd heard, otherwise.

    I think Cullen should do MY autobiography as Prime.

    And interject Ironhide from time to time, "But PRAHME!" and then cut himself off.

    Now THAT would be awesome. As long as every time he says "But PRAHME!" he also says "Ready the shuttle for launch!". Then gets back to the story.
