    I don't know what it is, better directing or a script he likes better or what, but he is at the top of his game in the trailer. He hasn't sounded this good as Prime in a while. I am not saying the work in the past movies and games have been bad, but it seems like he is reinvigorated this time out. All the lines in the new trailer really have weight and power to them. I have a feeling he is really going to shine in AOE.

    I think we're going to see a whole different Optimus than we're used too. and I agree it seems like Cullen has totally captured Primes po'ed mood for this one

    Yeah, not sure that anyone is freaking out but ok....

    I think Prime in this movie is going to be one of the most appealing version of the character so far. He has had more character development in the one trailer than he has in the other films. He seems darker and that he has lost faith in humanity.

    I can't wait to see it on the big screen.

    The title is just a joke. I know no one is worried, that's why I said nothing about it in the actual post.

    I honestly think his voice of Optimus has been getting worse throughout the movies, probably with his age. I think he sounded great in the 2007 movie and ROTF, but in DOTM it just sounded really off. Same with what I'm hearing from the AOE trailers.

    How old was Cullen when he first voiced Prime in the 80's?

    I fear Cullen is getting a bit too old to voice Optimus... in the last few films his voice sounded pretty strained and the sounds he made while fighting were just plain weird.

    That scream Optimus yells in the AOE trailer.

    That's the kind of passion we've been missing from his last few performances.

    I do not believe his voice is getting worse; I think he has nailed the voice fine regardless of age.

    Well, I'm glad someone has brought this topic up . . . I'm not worried either, and I agree with the original poster.

    The only time I felt Optimus' voice felt a little weak was during the Buzz Aldrin scene in DOTM (in the hangar) . . . to be specific, when Ironhide says that: "He's (Optimus is) pissed" . . . Optimus transforms, and then his voice is holding back . . . as if he didn't want to wake up a baby in the next room or something, you know?

    His "anger" doesn't seem to come through in that scene for me, and it always bothers me. I try to explain it away in my head, thinking . . . "oh, OP is such a gentle giant, that he cannot show his full on anger to a human . . .

    I never noticed that actually. I think Cullen is doing a fine job as Prime again.

    No one was worried. Peter is a fantastic actor and always has been. It's just that in Prime and Rescue Bots, he's forced to play a stoic bore under the pretense of playing a "strong heroic perfect leader". The Bay movies, the High Moon games, and G1 give him room to actually act. They actually have Optimus as a character.

    Anyone else wondering how Cullen reacted when he was asked to voice Prime again?

    Cullen sure is a good voice actor when he's actually allowed to emote.

    Yeah, these monotone Rescue Bots lines have to stop. It's like a night and day difference between RB and the AOE trailer. There is a reason the man is a voice legend and he knows the character, just let him get it done!
