    I really hope this movie works now, and doesn't suck, especially if both actors return to their roles. It'd be nice for both of them, not too mention the fans.

    Yeah...I bet good ol' Frank will be revealed at Botcon......probably have both offstage and have Megatron reply to Optimus with our favorite voices....at least...that would be a cool way to do it......


    Reading some of the posts in this thread....it seems that this news has brought out a kind of excitement that even homages in current toys and Classics haven't...this truly is a link to THE Transformers.....no G1, just THE TRANSFORMERS that most of us grew up with..yeah, I am giddy, so what. Even if OP does not look totally like the original, that voice! My brain has zoomed back to 1984, or 85, and watching TF's after school....after He-man, She-ra, Sabre Rider, Dinosaucers, but before G.I. Joe came on....gee they actually used to show cartoons in the afternoon...but anyway...I am blathering....I just think its neat. They are movie producers, and I think they kinda listened. wow

    Scandal time...

    I looked up Peter Cullen on IMDb and found out a couple of interesting thing of which many of you may already know....

    Link Credit:

    http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0191520/

    He did voices on many cartoons that I didn't connect

    Red Skull on Spiderman (1981)

    he was K.A.R.R. on Knight Rider...

    and he crossed the line and has a couple of credits on

    Challenge of the Gobots!!!! For shame Peter.... ;) 

    but at the end of the day he IS OPTIMUS PRIME!!!

    I'm as big a Family Matters fan as anyone, but somehow Telma Hopkins as Megatron just sounds wrong! :p

    After seeing this another thought just crossed my mind now that we have Optimus back do we also get Ironhide as well because Cullen also did his voice, that would be freakin' sweet!!!!

    Perhaps if Nell Carter were still alive...she could play Soundwave, and Jaleel White could play Starscream..then you have not only Family Matters, but Telma Hopkins earlier series Gimme a Break..that would be quite the reunion. I was kinda hoping that Charlotte Rae would be Megatron.

    Good news, very good news indeed. Now let's pray for Welker!!! Hell, it just wouldn't be right to have Cullen without Welker.

    As was mentioned here before....all they need is to secure Welker and it will be fantastic.
