Seibertron.com staffer and talented voice over professional, jON3.0 conducted an interview with fellow voice actor Richard Sellers. Mr. Sellers made an appearance on our news page just the other day, which you can read about here: /transformers/ ... toy/29404/

In the included embed below, Jon discusses his various work with Hasbro and in doing so we find out that Mr. Sellers is the voice of Optimus Prime in the Rescue Bots toyline, Transformers greeting cards and ornaments, plus he's recording material for the Age Of Extinction toy line. Grimlock, as we found out in his previous news bit, is one of his toy projects, with 7 others he can't name at this time.

Also of note, Mr. Sellers had the chance to work with Peter Cullen and found out that Mr. Cullen will be doing all the voice work for the AoE line.

So, I'm confused. The News title suggests that Mr. Sellers might be taking over the role of Optimus. But at the bottom, it says that Peter Cullen will be doing all the voice work for AoE. Is Peter Cullen retiring After this movie, or is Sellers just going to be doing the toys, or will he actually take over as Optimus?

What am I missing here?

This is strictly talking about the voice for the actual talking toys, not the cartoons or movies.

Differnet toylines. In AOE, Peter Cullen is recording Prime, Mr. sellers is recording other voices. Butin the other toy and merchndise lines, Sellers records the voices. Different contracts, Jon went into more detail about that in a Podcast.
