    I haven't seen any threads with this mentioned in it but did anyone know that Don's name is on WWI Optimus Primes Ion Blaster? I just noticed it last night while I was repositioning his right arm to hold it. It is on both sides of the gun. Here are a few pics below.

    I searched the threads and couldn't find anything. I just don't remember anyone saying anything about it back then.

    It was pointed out once ages ago, so it's probably not surprising you never found it in a search.

    Yeah same here, I never knew this. That's a pretty nifty find there Deathx360!
    But then again I wasn't posting here then, but I checked the front page all the time, and really don't recall seeing it on there.
    I could be mistaken though.

    That's one the greatest little details that I've seen on a Transformer. A Peter Cullen tribute on voyager movie Prime is another great example.

    heh I never noticed that on mine, but now I do vaguely remember someone pointing that out when initial shots of the toy were leaked out.

    Peter Cullen tribute on Voyager? I think I missed something there... Going to look at the galleries again...

    [EDIT: Are you refering to the "driver"? If so, it looked a bit generic to me (and believe me, I've seen a lot of truckers), is there any info stating that it's really a nod to Cullen?]

    Guy in a cowboy hat (something Peter is noted for wearing), sitting behind the wheel of Optimus Prime. If that's not a tribute I don't know what is.
