Peter Cullen and the Primes by hiredhand Peter Cullen and the Primes by hiredhand
A portrait of Peter Cullen, voice of both the classic G1 cartoon Prime and the 2007 live action Movie Prime.


I gave Mr. Cullen the original artwork when he attended the 2006 Botcon in Lexington, KY.

Please note, I drew this before there were any official, closeup pics of Movie Prime available, so I had to do a lot of guess work on what he would look like.

Today is the day! June 29th, 2012, Peter Cullen's 71st birthday since 1941!
If I could get Peter one great gift, it would be the Transformers: Prime Optimus Prime Long-nose Semi-Truck/Peterbilt 379 Truck from the show!
Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY PETER CULLEN, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! :)

Very nice work.

Is it possible for you to do Hot Rod and Rodimus Prime like this without Peter in it?

I still find it weird to see actual pupils in Prime's eyes, very odd. Very good detailing, he'll always be the voice of Optimus Prime.

This rocks. Heh. Poor Peter is finally getting the raves he deserves. They never even shared the fan-mail with the voice actors during the original series. It's great you gave him something to show for it all.

That's astounding, hiredhand! I bet he loved it!

I have him a drawing/Photoshop coloring of Prime at this year's BotCon (tis in my gallery somewhere). It seems he gets a lot of gifts from fans with the pile he was carrying away at one of his autograph sessions. LoL He's such a sweet guy.

I'm glad Mr Cullen liked it, and you got a hug off him as well? You lucky person :D

One of the best pieces of art i've seen in along time, keep it up :D

Can you do one for another role he did; Ramrod from "Saber Rider and the Star Sherrifs?"

Its made all the more special by Cullen actually getting to have it. That's a very touching story!

Yes, but it they will light up, so they won't look like I depicted them.

Oh wow! This is amazing (and you actually predicted what the new Prime design would be pretty well I must say!)

Did he like it or say anything when you gave it to him?

hiredhand Featured By Owner Apr 9, 2007
Mr. Cullen really seemed to like it. At first he said he couldn't take it because it was obvious I worked hard on it, but then I insisted he take it and told him that him loving it was all I needed in return. Then he gave me a hug. He's a really great guy. If you get the chance to meet him, make sure you take it!

Yeah, if I ever go to a con and he's there I'm definately going to try and say hi and get his autograph (and not like, faint from his awesomeness!!!)

Are you glad that he's doing Prime in the new movie? I can't wait until July 4th!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :headbang: :boogie:
