Optimus Prime’s New Look: What Peter Cullen Has To Say About it…



Every day that passes brings us closer to the launch of the next installment in the Transformers franchise.  There have been countless lunch boxes, toys, and advertisements that bear the image of Optimus Prime.  Now we have Transformers: The Ride 3D that has opened at Universal Orlando today.

Peter Cullen and Frank Welker were at the grand opening today.  Zap2it.com spoke with Peter Cullen.  Cullen said in regards to the new look of Optimus Prime:

“I’m always fascinated by the design changes because what could be more realistic than something that transforms and can change itself,” Cullen told Zap2it. “And cars change every year. They come off the design tables and the clay models and before you know it you’ve got a brand new look to a car. I like it that way. I’m excited to find out what Mr. Bay is going to do for the next look. After all, he’s always going to look like that [the Optimus Prime statue on Transformers: The Ride 3D]. He’s always going to transform into something pretty close to that.”
