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.

On Saturday (July 9th), you can catch the Peter Cullen panel at 4:45 PM, in room 710b - Freeman Theatre. Questions must be asked in advance and you can ask them here.
On Sunday (July 10th), yours truly will be hosting a Transformers panel at 2:00PM, called 30+ Years of Transformer Toys and their Evolution, in room 514a - Panel Room 1. It is aimed at people who are not familiar with the past 30 years of toys and features different Optimus Prime toys from throughout those years, starting with G1, that will be transformed live to show the evolution of the toys.

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).

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.
