    It is also fair to say when he was rebuilt it may have been necessary to insert a fresh new vocal system (something movie ratchet is apparently incapable of) but I digress.

    As for the Japanese using the same voice actor they may have just not bothered to get someone else to do the job.

    An interesting note is Tessho Genda also revived his role as Optimus Prime in the Japanese dub of TF film 1.

    Perhaps it simply came down to the fact that Peter Cullen was not able to do a younger, less battle tested sounding character? His voice is pretty distinctive after all, and the decision seems to have been taken to make Orion a much younger character in all aspects.

    Also, yes, to keep the mystery going until the reveal.

    Also because if Cullen was doing other characters in the same episode, after he did 3 they'd have had to pay him more.

    Also the voice actors guild says that if you do more then 3 characters per episode you have to be payed more........

    Considering "War Dawn" had Prime and Ironhide but none of Peter Cullen's other characters from the Season 1-2 run (Like Protectobot Streetwise), it's possible he did some minor background character (one of Megatron's goons perhaps).

    ................

    Or just that they wanted to keep the mystery of who is Orion Pax...........

    Tessho Genda was also G1 Omega Supreme and later reprrised his role in Transformers: Animated and in Superlink and Galaxy Force he was the voice of Primus.

    Now if only Hasbro would stop giving us Peter Cullen as Optimus Prime and give us Peter Cullen as Primus, hell i wish the Cybertron dubbers thought of that...even though the voices where in Canada.

    As for Orion Pax....I don't know maybe Cullen doesn't do well with younger higher pitch voices?

    What's this? Protoman SECOND PLACE in posting a fact? =P


    Looks like Laurie Faso was only doing the voice of Skydive in War Dawn, so I imagine he was a good candidate for picking up an extra character to voice for the episode.

    Who knows, Orion Pax could have been voiced instead by Casey Kasem, Don Messick, Ed Gilbert or Jack Angel!


    Did Orion Pax have a different voice from Prime in the Quebec Dub, Proto?

    He was born in Montreal and started his career there, but for all intents and purposes he hasn't done a whole lot of work in Canada for a long, long time. Also, the Canadian voice recordings were done in Vancouver, on the other side of the country from where he's from, and at that time I think he was already doing work for Disney in the US.

    edit: I suspect his parents may have been American and thus he and his brother may have had dual citizenship, which would explain his brother's entry into the Marine Corps. It's also possible he got American citizenship down the road, given that he was working and living in the US. Can anyone confirm?

    Hmm.....That would explain a lot. I hate it how America keeps stealing Canadian voice actors....First Peter Cullen.....Then David Kaye.....I hope it's Scott McNeil next. :p
