Only a handful of people in the world can say that they have voiced Optimus Prime. One of these people is Transformers Robots In Disguise Voice Actor Neil Kaplan. And you have the chance to meet him in the coming months at the following two events.

The Animation Convention "Animation On Display" will be held on February 16th and 17th 2008 in San Francisco, CA. Guests include Neil Kaplan and Comic book writer Marv Wolfman.

The MegaCon Comicbooks convention will be held on March 7th through the 9th in Orlando, FL. Aside from a whole host of comicbook talent, Guests include William Morgan Sheppard who played Captain Archibald Witwicky in Michael Bay's Transformers and (again) Neil Kaplan. If you intend to swing by on March 9th, do not forget to wish the Robots In Disguise star a happy birthday!

I don't care what anyone else thinks, his performance as Prime was just Prime. He was perfect as the U.S. Fire Convoy, no one else was needed for the role, just him.

Neil Kaplan is my favorite Optimus Prime Voice actor only second to Peter Cullen. I can tell you he is a great guy. The guy is funny and talented. I can assure you it will be worth your time to go and meet him.
