It looks like Peter Cullen is not the only original voice of Optimus Prime or should I say Convpy?, to return. TFormers.com is reporting that Tesshô Genda, the voice of Convoy in Fight Super Robots, will provide the voice for Optimus Prime in the Japanese version of the Transformers Movie. Two versions will be released. One will have subtitles in Japanese and the other will have a dubbed Japanese voice track.

Good for you guys! It's only fair that if we can get our Original Prime, you get your original Convoy.

That's one decent thing Hasblo and co have done for the transfan commnunity.

These also happen to the many other countries that need another screening with their own language for the movie, if you hate to read the subtitle and didn't want to lose the screen. :grin:

I do think Peter's voice as Prime in this film was handsomely
speak and suit to his gentleman robot look indeed ;;)

Yah! Tessho Genda rules! I hope the rest of the G1 Japanese cast will come back, But I cant say the same for the late Hirotaka Suzuki :sad: But I think Kazuki Yao should get a chance to play Screamer since he played him in the Japanese dub of BW
