Collider has posted a new interview with Transformers Legends Frank Welker and Peter Cullen, the longtime fan-favorite voices of Megatron and Optimus Prime! You can check out the full interview by following the above link, or read up on some snippets below, where the 2 legends talk about their ever evolving voice acting, the differences between providing voices for cartoons and movies, and more!

While most of their fans likely know the duo from their Transformers work, Cullen and Welker actually go back even further than that:

Peter Cullen: We go back to a cartoon series called Mighty Man and Yukk. [1979]

Frank Welker: Ah yes, yes, yes.

Cullen: And that’s when I first met Frank. But Frank had met me many, many times because he used to go to hockey games and I served hot dogs. [laughs]

Welker: I was a big fan of Peter’s. I used to watch him on the Sonny and Cher show when he did that little character up front. I did not know it was Peter at the time, but when I heard him doing that…

Cullen: The little man in the ball?

Welker: Yeah, the little man in the ball and those sound effects. I thought, whoever this is, I think I’m going to retire, he’s just too good.

.....

Obviously they’ve done both Transformers movies and TV shows. Here’s the biggest difference between those performances:

Cullen: One of the most obvious, for me, was when we did the cartoon series, we’d all be together in a small recording booth. It would be 8 to 10 characters staring into the glass with the director on the other side with the sound men. With the feature film, it was always working one-on-one with Michael Bay, the sound engineer, and a camera on your lips. So, yes, they were very, very different.

Welker: As Peter was saying, when you have a cast, you kind of play off each other. You can build … almost like a play, because obviously you read it as a play, so you have this nice interaction. When we did the series, standing next to Peter was always a benefit because you really get into it. You’re going hand-to-hand, but physically, you get the feeling of that person being there.

.....

With on-the-job hazards like that, you might wonder how Cullen and Welker have stayed healthy in this business for so long:

Welker: Early in my life, I probably abused my voice more than I should have. It is an instrument. You need to take care of yourself. If you have a session the next day, go to bed early, do vocal warm-ups on the way to the studio, that’s just about all you can do.

Cullen: My mom used to say, “Peter, don’t do this, you’re going to ruin your voice! It’s going to stay like that!” But when I was an acting student, I studied under an operatic coach named Bernard Diamant from New York. He described the basic instrument, as we all have, the human voice. I was particularly impressed with a remark that he made: A baby, when it’s born, has the most perfect vocal ability. Opera singers study to get back to that for years through the use of your diaphragm, the expansion of air in your chest and lungs, the use of tonal cavities that are built into your upper chest and your head.

An article was recently posted on limitlessiq, in chinese, Spotlighting Takara Designer Yuya Onishi. He is one of the younger Takara designers, born in 84, which makes him working in Takara's Transformers brand quite poetic.

The article is more about his past, where we learn that he comes from Osaka and went to school to study mechanical designs for cars. However, he ended up designing toys since he felt there was more personal creativity with toy designs.

The article reiterates Takara's involvement in the Transformers toy development. It claims that the designer is shown the final form of both the robot and the vehicle and they must then come up with the conversion steps, parts design, material, and modeling. It is also within this stage that Takara comes up with the cost of a product which is related to all the previously mentioned factors.

The article ends on a touching note that what draws Yuya Onishi to this brand is how it affects people. He knows his designs will become someone's memory of a toy they picked up with whatever means they had, and thus he wants all these memories to be happy ones.

We know that many Seibertronians had considered attending Hascon, but were not able to actually make it in person, so Seibertron.com has strived to bring you an idea of what the event looked like in first person, with a walkthrough of the floors and the brand experiences laid out by Hasbro - featuring Magic the Gathering, Dungeons & Dragons, My Little Pony, Star Wars, Disney Princess, Marvel, Nerf, and more (but missing GI Joe, Dropmix and Hascade, due to time constraints!) - in a 20 minute clip! Follow our own Seibertron as he takes a look at all the areas, and enjoy the official images provided by Hasbro themselves collected in our gallery below, featuring the likes of James Gunn, Mark Wahlberg, Frank Welker, Peter Cullen, Maddie Ziegler, Isabella Moner, Brandin Cook, and more!

One other piece of movie-related news from Hascon deals with the second induction for the Transformers Hall of Fame, introduced by Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner - and featuring the producer of the Michael Bay directed movies from Paramount: Lorenzo di Bonaventura!

Starting with Transformers (2007), to Revenge of the Fallen, Dark of the Moon and then the new trilogy with Age of Extinction, The Last Knight and the next movie (plus of course the Transformers Universe: Bumblebee solo spin-off), di Bonaventura has been behind the scenes, helping shape what we have today in the live action universe. Check out the ceremony below, and head back here for the Susan Blu one that preceded it!

In more Transformers: The Last Knight and Hascon news combined, we also have recordings of the major panels featuring the cast of the latest movie in Paramount's live-action universe for the Cybertronians - including producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and actors Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, Peter Cullen, and Frank Welker, plus Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner.

The first Transformers The Last Knight panel, during the day on Saturday September 9th, 2017, starred Mark Wahlberg, Isabela Moner, Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura, and Executive Producer/Hasbro CEO Brian Goldner. The 2nd panel, held later that night during the Transformers VIP event, switched Brian Goldner with legendary Transformers voice actors Peter Cullen (Optimus Prime) and Frank Welker (Megatron). We've collated both together in the clip below, as they discuss the cast, working with director Michael Bay, the choices and realities of working on a project this big, in this scale, and of this relevance to popular culture (despite final results, of course), and the importance and difficulty of creating sequels in a franchise. When Welker and Cullen take their place, on the other hand, we get some more insight into the dynamic between them as actors and their characters since the early stages of their career and a lot of voices seasoning the interview too. Check it out!

In other news from Hascon, and as has been the case for years, we also took some time to look at non-Transformers news from around the event - with some attention given to the My Little Pony franchise, one of Hasbro's biggest sellers after Magic the Gathering and Nerf, and with its Movie line coming up soon and the Equestria Girls line still going strong.

In addition, we were able to attend the big panel for the Marvel side of things (for which Hasbro produces action figures): Stan Lee - co-creator of the Marvel universe himself, and the rumoured Watcher for the cinematic Marvel universe - live on stage! Both videos can be viewed below, of course, and do let us know what you think in the Energon Pub!
