Peter Cullen is Optimus Prime by Leathurkatt-TFTiggy Peter Cullen is Optimus Prime by Leathurkatt-TFTiggy

Description:
I was looking through pictures of the various Transformers from the live action movies one day and it suddenly dawned on me; the cgi guys made Optimus look just like his voice actor. Just add a fuzzy upper lip and it's Robo Cullen! Originally created and posted March 23rd, 2010 by me on FA.

Good question, really.  I actually thought Sentinel was modeled after Leonard Nemoy, who actually voiced in in DotM.

Yeah it is.  Often you see that in cartoons where the character is drawn to look somewhat like the actor voicing them, but not usually with CGI robots, except for Optimus Prime for the live action movies, though Sentinel Prime looks a lot like Leonard Nemoy, who voiced him in Dark of the Moon.
Leonard Nemoy --> www.amalgamatedmediaservices.c…
Sentinel Prime --> www.monologuedb.com/wp-content…

Leonard Nemoy also voiced Galvatron in the 1986 Transformers: the Movie for Generation 1.  He's best known for his role as Spock from the original Star Trek series, which my mom grew up watching in the 1960's, and the first six Star Trek movies which I grew up watching (as well as the two new ones).  So he was the first Star Trek actor to end up in Transformers, followed by Jeffery Combs and George Takai.

Actually, Peter Cullen only does Optimus' voice in G1, the Movies, and TFPrime. Garry Chalk voiced Optimus in the Unicron Trilogy and Beast Wars/Beast Machines. Neil Kaplan voiced Optimus in Robots in Disguise. David Kaye voiced Optimus in TFA. **smiles** But Peter Cullen was the original and will always be the real Optimus Prime.

you never noticed that before? Animators always base the appearance of the character by thier voice actor since they come on set long before the characters are even drawn. Its kind of creepy sometimes. :)

Oh, I posted this some time ago, and yeah, I knew they did that with cartoon characters. But looking at the other bots, he's the only one they did that with.

P.S. sorry for the bad spelling on my last comment i couldn't remember how to spell eeyore's name!
