The Montreal Comiccon has been growing immensely in the recent years to become one of the biggest cons in Canada. However, this year, it takes things to the next level by having the one and only Peter Cullen, the voice of Optimus Prime, as a featured guest. This is the very first appearance of any Transformers G1 voice actor, and way to hit a homerun on the fist chance at bat.

Peter Cullen’s many voices are well known throughout the world. The 2011 Emmy® nominated voice actor is best known for providing the voice of Optimus Prime from the Transformers franchise. Be it feature films (Transformers, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and Transformers: Dark of the Moon and the most recent box office smash, Transformers: Age of Extinction), animated series (Transformers Prime, Transformers: Robots In Disguise, Rescue Bots ), video games or anything in the Transformers universe that requires the deep resonating heroic voice of Optimus Prime, it is Cullen’s talented voice that is heard.


The Montreal Comiccon will take place from July 8-10 2016 at Palais des congrès.

Montreal Comiccon is starting Friday, Jully 8th, and one of its special guests is non other than Optimus Prime himself, Peter Cullen. Unlike other guests, getting an autograph from Mr Cullen requires a special package so here is a breakdown of the packages available and the prices for those wanting to attend:

Earlier this year, we announced that Peter Cullen would be coming home, to meet his fans at Montreal Comiccon. Best known as the original voice of Optimus Prime in the Transformers 80s Cartoon series, and most other appearances thereafter, he has also brought to life Eeyore in the Winnie the Pooh franchise, Monterey Jack in Chip & Dale's Rescue Rangers, and many other classic 80's and 90's cartoons. This is a rare appearance with specialty tickets required, only available for Saturday and Sunday, and limited to 125 autographs each day*. Make sure you get your tickets now before they are all gone!

The Gold package will get you an autograph on an item of your choice, one table photo (bring your camera), one Montreal Comiccon exclusive Transformers comic book from IDW, and priority access to the Peter Cullen Q&A on Saturday afternoon, with a collectible badge. The Silver Package will include an autograph on an item of your choice, one table photo, and one Montreal Comiccon exclusive Transformers comic book from IDW.

Tickets are now available! Go to the Tickets section to buy yours!

*Walk up at table purchase will NOT be available as he is only signing a limited amount of items during a limited amount of time.

Sadly, I dont think there will be. I think they only tape the panels with the stars, like Shatner. I dont even know if the Peter Cullen Panel will be taped (professionally).

It was pretty fun afterall. There was a line up, I couldnt beleive it. Unintenionally it turned into an Abbot and Costello act where I was the straight man and Kanrabat was the one cracking jokes. Most of the jokes were about him swearing while trying to transform them live and pieces coming off.

The Peter Cullen panel was great. He reiteated somthing I still do not believe: that he is playing the same optimus in the films as the one he portrayed in G1. But hey, he's the official sourcefor that info on characterisation, and will be strict about what he cant say as optimus, so I must abide. Also, he had to audition 3 times to play the role of Optimus in the films. He was seen as a voice actor like any other. That sounds pretty nuts to have Peter freaken Cullen audition for the role of Optimus.
Oh and he is from my hometown and the town fo the show: Montreal. Didnt know that.

We're reminded that next weekend - 5-6 November - is time for Shanghai Comic Con, and Tranformers artist Andrew Griffith, from IDW's The Transformers and multiple more, will be attending as a guest. Check out more info here and below!

Andrew Griffith is a freelance comic book artist, designer and illustrator currently working on Transformers comics for IDW Publishing.

He is best known for his own mini-series to illustrate, a prequel comic to the “Transformers: Dark of the Moon” film. Griffith also has worked on various projects for Hasbro, illustrated Transformers DVD covers for Shout! Factory, and contributed professional work on properties including G.I.
