This site is a hobby, and it's undergoing an extreme makeover. Thanks for your patience as I painstakingly change the design, and learn HTML at the same time.
Lots of MP3s found here
Listen the delight in the awesome work
of voice actor Peter Cullen here.
|Why did you create this site? Are you nuts?
Last part first. Yeah, a little bit. I liked the Transformers when I was a kid. Now I'm all grown up and I should know better. There are two reasons actually.
What should I look at first while I'm here?
The Quote Index is pretty extensive and gives readers a sense of Prime's great character. Each quote has accompanying episode information and most have a corresponding screencap. The index is organized by topic category. You can also keyword search at the top for names of episodes or by key words.
So how do you pick the quotes?
Quotes are selected by my personal preference, but I try to keep some basic rules in mind. A quote needs to illustrate Optimus Prime's character, be iconic ("Transform and roll out!") and/or can stand on its own out of context. For some quotes I include more dialog because the quotes won't make sense without context.
How come I can't find pictures of Soundwave or one of my other favorite characters in the Quote Index?
Since the Quote Index is Prime-centric, the photos mainly revolve around quotes of Optimus Prime and the characters involved when he speaks. This means that the number and variety of characters in the pictures is kind of limited.
|Who is Optimus Prime?
I thought you'd ask, so read Who Is Optimus Prime? That will give you a good background of the character as I see fit.
Why only G1 and the movies? Why not comics or the later cartoon series?
Transformers is cursed with a varying and conflicting mythology. You need to pick and choose your continuity. There's a lot out there to choose from, and these are my selections. I find that G1 is still my personal favorite. Peter Cullen has been, and will always be, the defining voice actor for Optimus Prime, and that's why I limit the content to media featuring his work.
What if I like Megatron?
Hey, there's no accounting for taste. In all honesty, Megatron is a great villain. He's a cold, ruthless, self-serving, genocidal megalomaniac, and I love every time Optimus kicks his butt because he really deserves it.
Are you using this site to make money?
No. I do not have any kind of profit-generating instrument behind this site. In fact, this site costs me money and time. However, as a creative professional, I firmly believe in intellectual property rights and copyright law. I created this site as a hobby, to have fun and as a tribute to the character. I don't make any money off of it and I'm not planning to.
I want to ask you a question. How do I contact you?
