    I Am just as excited as everyone else here that Cullen is getting the Role...the Role HE made famous & the voice I remember VERY well from my childhood....


    That being said...I think we all have to give Gary Chalk A big hand for keeping up the integrity of the character for all this time. I've seen a few posts calling any other VA an "Imposter" & I think that is just wrong to say about Chalk. Chalk has done a Terrific job with the role since it became his with Optimus Primal. He has done nothing to diminish it. He's done it proud...

    It is time to turn the reigns back over to the Original for the original but please give credit where credit is due.....

    Way to go Gary Chalk!!!...Way to go Peter Cullen!!!

    If you mean Chris Latta, the original voice for both...he's dead.

    YAY!
    Also, I may be the last one to know, but I just checked Peter Cullen on imdb.com, and found out that he is Eeyore from Winnie the Pooh!
    Optimus is Eeyore... whoa...
    Revelation....

    CULLEN IS PRIME!!!!!

    This... is some of the best news to come out about the movie period.

    Also, I agree with TT. For a change we owe DM a little props for fighting in our corner this time. So to Murphy (and anyone else whom fought this battle for us) you guys rock! :dj  :rock

    This movie could now have the decepticons transform into teddy bears and Bumblebee be Spikes love interest and they still have got my 10 bucks just to hear "MY" Prime one more time.

    Great news.
    It might just boost sales of the 20th anniv. TFTM dvd.
    Let's pull for Welker. David Kaye would do well also.

    Yay, Twin Twist's old Civil War sig worked! :rock  I would have loved to see that SDCC crowd when they announced it and Cullen's voice played.

    It's funny, I didn't think I really cared one way or the other about this issue, and I was mentally prepared to accept whoever it ended up being; and yet suddenly I feel like squealing with glee.

    This was The Right Thing To Do.

    This is FANTASTIC news. I literally jumped up when I first saw the news. Wow!

    I would love to see or hear Cullen's reaction to the fandom's overwhelmingly positive reaction of this news.

    Give them an inch and they take a mile.

    To hell with Welker, give us David Kaye or Leonard Nimoy.
