After taking the Matrix of Leadership, the legendary leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime, has gone on to obtain greater achievements.
Recently, the voice of the iconic (read: best) Optimus Prime from the original Generation 1 Transformers cartoon, Peter Cullen, received the 2019 Lifetime Achievement for the Society of Voice Arts and Sciences.
This award is given to distinguished voice actors, directors, writers and more from the voice acting industry for TV shows, video games, movies and other media. Cullen’s work as Optimus Prime in virtually all Transformers media, most recently Bumblebee, has earned him legendary status among the voice acting industry and the geek community at large.
However, he is also iconic for roles such as Eeyore in Winnie the Pooh, K.A.R.R in Knight Rider, and the Predator in Predator have also not gone unnoticed.
Cullen will go up on stage to receive the award during the 6th Annual Voice Arts Awards this Sunday, November 17, 2019, at the Warner Brothers Studios in Burbank, California.

Forgive him in advance if he suddenly blurts out terms such as “Mind Flayer” and “Magic Missile”, because never once does he stop thinking about his next Dungeons & Dragons game.
