Frank is such a legend!

Greatest voice actor the ever lived as far as I'm concerned.

This made my day so much better.

Enter the Predacon "Singular"

But I guess that is so they can make it sound like "Enter the Dragon"

Both are really cool guys.

I think this video proves that Cullen can still be a fun Optimus but the voice director for prime does not let it happen.

I think it's less the voice director and more the writing itself. There's not really any room in the scripts for Prime to be more "fun".

Why does everybody want Optimus to be fun? All the happy's should have been sucked out of him.

You want Happy? Hope they make a movie version of Exodus. Otherwise, Optimus will be happy when the war ends and both sides are at peace.

Loved Frank getting possessed by Megatron and vice versa.

Preference, some people like a fun more cartoony Optimus, some like commando Optimus like the movies and some (like myself) like Optimus to be portrayed a bit more realistic. Different strokes for different folks.

The great thing about Transformers is there is a place for everyone to meet their preference.

It's always great to hear/see interviews with Transformers all time Great One's.

Peter was having a bit of fun, something he doesn't get to do too often as Optimus..and still letting us know there's some fight left in Prime.

......and Frank had a puppy caught in his throat. Oh, and watch out for your Girl Scout Cookies.

Now that image is just pure win

*doorbell rings*
Mom: good grief we don't want -WHAT THE!-
Megatron: Evening, little one. Would you care for some....let's see...I have Samoas and Thin Mints.
Mom: We don't usually buy cookies.
Megatron: I'll throw in Starscream cookies as a bonus!
Mom: And a box of Tagalongs?
Megatron: Don't push me, human.
Mom: Fine * shuts door*

PETER CULLEN AND FRANK WELKER PLEASE BE MY UNCLES. Great interviews. Really made my day.

I also find it interesting that Blum puts a little generic British accent on his Starscream lines here...

Peter: "Nobody's gonna' be disappointed." Oh, Peter, you give the fandom way too much credit.

It's always a little jarring hearing Frank Welker's real voice, since it's nothing like the various monsters and animals he usually plays.

these two kings if Tf voice acting will continue to be Legends long after
Zornimus Prime
I've said it before and I'll say it again.....Someone needs to invent a program that will allow voice legends to read something, like a specific book, into a microphone that then gets put in a program that will then be able to generate their voices. Thus immortalizing their voices.

Very short, but fun, interview segments.

You got that right; one would think he'd sound like a casual version of Nibbler's true voice or something, but nope. : D

All I know is I wouldn't wanna hear some of Franks Characters reading Goodnight Moon or Curious George.

Thank-you tons for posting these. I really enjoy seeing the VA's in person. I hope there are interviews with the other VA's as well.

Yeah, it's essentially his Fred Jones voice. In fact, I'd say that his normal voice if slightly higher-pitched than his Fred Jones voice.
