Today only RIPT Apparel is offering a one-a-kind t-shirt design by artist Ninjaink titled "Voice of a Generation". The design features none other than the beloved voice of Optimus Prime, Peter Cullen, in a classic pose any comic book fan will recognize. Ninjaink created this design because of his love of the original Transformers series and to pay homage to the voice of one of the 80's most recognizable figures.

Ninjaink has been gracious enough to donate his proceeds from the sale of the shirt to the Hasbro Children's Hospital in Rhode Island, and RIPT Apparel has chosen to match that donation. $2 of each item sold will be donated to the hospital on behalf of both RIPT and the artist. Peter Cullen himself was honored to be portrayed in such a grandiose way and has given his blessing for the design created by Ninjaink.

This shirt will only be available at RIPT for 24 hours starting at midnight CST Tuesday April 3 for $10. Get yours before Botcon and maybe get a chance to have Mr. Cullen himself sign this iconic tee.

I'm not 100% sure on this, but by going on his Deviant art page and from my memory, Tim Lim is an original Seibertronian. I think that's "Morph" if anyone remembers him from back in the day. He was one of the chillest doods on the board and made me my first sig ever. Heck, I even realized that I bought some of his non TF RIPTApparel while browsing through his page.

If that's you Morph, miss ya bud.

Are these licensed by Hasbro as well as DC for the Superman reference? If not, I'm not quite sure how I feel about this...IP and all, ya'know. And please don't bring it around BotCon or they'll rip it straight off your chest!

Definitely not my style. Im sure this shirt will please some superman fans, but it's kind of dragging us back in time to the era where all transformers fans were considered "comic book geeks". I would rather see shirts that portray the Transformers as battle hardened warriors.

Let it be known, I have nothing but respect for Peter Cullen and it's great that part off the proceeds go to charity. But the shirt's theme is just not for me.

I thought you weren't one to sugar-coat? No matter how edgy one tries to make them look, The Transformers are still toys collected by both children and nerds of all ages. One doesn't have to be into comics to be considered a "geek". :-B ;)

Well in this case Im just being honest. Superheroes are the apitimy of comic book culture. Transformers however, are now considered part of pop culture thanks to Michael Bay. Not everyone who is a hardcore Transformers fan likes superheroes. So mixing the two together wont appeal to everyone. Same with the Marvel Crossovers lines. Some might argue that Transformers are "superheroes" but I consider them to be aliens. That is, unless you consider Howard the Duck a superhero. :lol:

Regardless, pop culture in and of itself is at times considered geeky.

Even the Bay movies are guilty of this. They are pure bait for action flick geeks.

Besides, the whole point of this shirt is make Peter Cullen look like a larger-than-life person. You know, one of those "less than a god, more than a man", "living legend" types like how Babe Ruth was to baseball. It's not a Transformers, it's a Peter Cullen shirt.

I'm a loud and proud geek. Nothing wrong with it. Only thing wrong with some geeks are those that pretend they're not because they want to be "cool" to others. Friends should like each other for who they are ... your "cool" side, your "geek" side, whatever. Just be yourself! Who wants to be friends with someone who doesn't like you or teases you because you like Transformers? There are more important things in the world to judge people on than whether or not they collect a toy line.

Rated X ... I hate to tell you, you are a geek. I'm a geek. Everyone that's a teenager or adult that's into Transformers is a geek on some level. And there's nothing wrong with it.

Embrace your inner geek my friends!

Your point is valid Ryan. But wouldn’t you say the whole “geek” thing is more of a stereotype than a reality in today’s TF fans? The whole seibertron.com staff is cool people, definitely not geeks in my opinion. You guys have always been great friends the past 2 years and that is what makes my whole Botcon experiences so enjoyable.

But I do believe it is my job to educate those around me as to how cool TF collectors can really be. I defy every stereotype placed upon us. I think in this day and age, most of the “geek” stereotypes are as fictional as comic book characters themselves. And watching those stereotypes of the past fade away is a good thing to me. That’s why I get a little sensitive when fellow TF fans try to keep those stereotypes alive, blatant or indirectly.

As collectors, we can take a step back or a step forward. We can embrace the stereotypes that have dogged our hobby for decades, or we can rise above them. Lets dictate the hobby, not let it dictate us. :D

He bares no likeness to Superman. I don't believe being placed in a similar pose is overstepping any licensing. As far as Hasbro, the donations are going to the HASBRO Childrens Hospital. I think they'll be fine with it. You're right about Botcon though. You'll probably have it stripped from your body. lol How long before they hit Ebay? hahaha

Yeah, every one of us on this forum is a geek, no matter how ya look at it.

The whole "Urkel"-style of geeks that pop culture often portrays is not a realistic representation of geeks. It is but a facsimile of what people "think" is a geek. Even the guys from The Big Bang Theory are exaggerated depictions of the real deal made solely for entertainment purposes.


I mean, no one would ever look at, say, Robert Downey Jr., and think "geek" or "nerd", since he looks like a regular guy. And yet,

You can include Simon Pegg in the geek population: "Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It's basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult. Being a geek is extremely liberating." Great quote from Scotty version 2.0.

Well I think this is a “glass half full or half empty” debate. It’s all a matter of opinion based on the ever-growing diversity among Transformers fans and collectors.

But for the people who believe “geek culture” should be embraced or preserved, I offer you a question:


If 1,000 people that are deemed “cool” by society in general decided to start collecting Transformers tomorrow, what would you have?

A. 1,000 new geeks

B. A generalization that Transformers collecting is starting to become “cool” to society in general.

Obviously, my answer is B. I think pop culture is as diverse as it’s fans. And Michael Bay has planted the seeds for Transformers to be “cool” for everyone, not just stereotypical geeks. It’s up to us (the fans) to nurture that seed so it can bloom and become a reality. Nobody should feel threatened if Transformers loses it’s “geekness” over the years and becomes mainstream. We all come from different walks of life. But at Botcon, we all have a good time and learn a lot from each other about so many things. That’s why I say, let the old stereotypes die. Some might think I’m a undercover geek. Others might think I’m not geeky enough to be a true Transformers fan. To me those are all just opinions. To each their own. Everybody on here who knows me from Botcon knows I keep it real. Hope we get a chance to hang out in Dallas and have a few drinks.

If you saw some of the women that was out there, you might edit youre comment. =P~

Botcon brings in between 3000-5000 people from across the country. Wrestlemania brings in between 75,000-90,000. You do the math. Trust me, Miami was the place to be last weekend.

I think once your collection takes up more than a single shelf, not to mention if you regularly frequent a site dedicated to toys, you're offcially a geek. You might not present yourself as the stereotypical geek. (I don't think I do...I usually get the 'are you in a band?' question,) but make no mistake, you have a geek side to you.

There should be degrees then based on the number of shelves (or rooms) your collection takes up. Personally, I'm at 5 bookshelves, an entertainment center, a bar, and 8 of those plastic drawer things.

Sure, we could do that. ;) But the point I was getting at is, even if TFs happened to be considered trendy or hip, once you get past about shelf full or so, you can't really hide behind the notion that you're some sort of hipster with a casual TF collection. You've now graduated to official geek status...

My wife was making fun of some dude one of her co-workers was dating for doing some lame treasure hunting game of some sort and how dorky it was...the co-worker came back at her with the fact that her husband has a room full of Transformers. What more could my wife say? :lol:

Anyone else get theirs?


Aye, just got mine as well. Talk about fast, I was expecting it to be at least 2 weeks before it shipped, what with the order volume I imagine they received and all. My guess is these folks have been making a lot of coffee :D

Same here. As always, I'm impressed with my buddy Paul's company. Kudos to Paul and RIPT Apparel. Can't wait to get my shirt. :D

I'm curious to know if this has happened to anyone else. I got standard ($3) shipping on my shirt. It came today and, low and behold, it was inadequate postage. I had to leave money for the flippin mailman because the money I paid them apparently didn't cover the full shipping cost. Horribly unprofessional, IMHO. :BOOM:

I received mine today no problem. I didn't look at the package but I'm assuming that they shipped it via First Class. First Class covers up to 13 ounces for shipping unless they have a handling fee as well. If it weighs more than 13 ounces, it has to be shipped via Priority Mail or some other service.

How much did the post office say you owed for shipping? I always thought the post office would send the item back to the original shipper and tell them invalid postage ... I've never heard of a package recipient being charged more for the cost of an item's shipping if the shipper didn't pay enough. You must have a really strict post office!

You should contact RIPT instead of saying that's "horribly unprofessional". Could have just been an honest mistake when weighing your package, and we're only talking about 20 to 40 cents max for one shirt, unless you ordered multiple shirts and it was still shipped at the 1 shirt weight.

Already contacted them. Haven't heard back at this point. It was an additional 40 cents on top of the $3 I already paid...the mailman just put a little envelope taped to the package that said "You owe this" and expects it left in the mailbox on Monday.

It's Easter weekend. You probably won't hear back from them until Monday at the earliest. It's 40 cents ... I wouldn't get too bent out of shape over it. I'm sure it's an honest mistake. Cut them a little slack. You got an awesome shirt, no sense letting forty cents ruin your experience. I'm sure they will be more than happy to resolve the problem for you.
