Several fans have wanted to remind us, and we would love to remind the whole Seibertron.com and Transformers community, that today - July 28th - is the 75th birthday of one of the staples of the Transformers franchise in its fictional incarnations: Mr Optimus Prime himself, Peter Cullen!

Canadian-born, Cullen grew up not far from news staffer william-james88 in Montreal, and joined the ranks of the numerous voice acting talents on the 1980s via Voltron, Knight Rider, Winnie the Pooh, G.I. Joe and many more series - but really rose to prominence as the leader of the Autobots in The Transformers. Returning to this role in 2007 with the Michael Bay/Paramount live-action series based on the Cybetronians, he fully took up the character again in Transformers Prime, Robots in Disguise, and the various videogames of the franchise, including the latest mobile incarnation, Transformers: Earth Wars.

Cullen has also had a small cameo as Optimus' holomatter driver in Alex Milne's artwork in the comics, and as narrator for a NASA clip and one of the first humans to be introduced to the Hasbro/BotCon Hall of Fame in 2010.

Happy Birthday, Peter. Yes, he definitely doesn't look it. He could easily be in his lower 60's.

Happy Birthday to Peter Cullen! Part of the duo that makes up the heart and soul of Transformers, the other part of course being Frank Welker, but not his birthday today. Ah. Well.

75? Wow, I would have never thought that. 65, maybe. I hadn't noticed this thread until now, so happy belated birthday to Mr. Cullen. I really hope he will make a cameo on the next Bayverse film as Optimus's holographic driver. They did it with Blackout in the 1st film, why not with Prime in TLK?
