    Peter Cullen voice. If were going child friendly then G1 cartoon but if in the real world then movie verse.

    Who is Optimus Prime to me?

    Leader of the Autobots about the time they show up on Earth.
    Usually turns into a big red truck of some kind.
    Was once a nerdboy named Orion Pax.
    Was once Megatron's bro. That didn't work out.
    Once had a girlfriend. That didn't work out either.
    Despises killing, but will still do it if necessary. Avoids using lethal force on weaker lifeforms.
    Can't take himself too seriously after millions of years in combat...his sanity would depend on it, I imagine.
    Has a tendency to die, but that never keeps him down long, and he often comes back with a bad^$$ upgrade.

    Pretty much my childhood hero and symbol of strength. So gallant and brave, his death in the 86 movie is still the only scene I can't help but tear up to.....And I'm 34.

    TF Prime Optimus, for me he was the best Optimus Prime in the tv/movie/video game medium.

    The ideal Optimus to me is G1, because that's who I grew up with. Specifically, I always picture the Optimus from the opening mini-series. He was definitely a leader who was willing to be the first soldier into battle, but also knew how to delegate to others. He was intelligent and strategic, but he was also flawed. He wasn't afraid to trade insults with his enemies during a fight, and he spoke like a normal person (except when he'd occasionally slip into a John Wayne impression). He was never overly dramatic and he knew how to use contractions (I hate that about modern Prime). He seemed like a leader who you could go to for advice, not someone who would just spout platitudes at you. He seemed like the Prime who was a real person before later versions attempted to portray him as the ideal example of a good guy leader.

    When I think of the ideal Optimus Prime, he ends up being a mishmash of G1, Armada, IDW, TFP, and a bit of movieverse.
