Optimus Prime, Megatron remember 35 years of Transformers

MIAMI (AP) — The Autobots have been waging their battle to destroy the evil forces of the Decepticons for 35 years, but there’s no sign the men who voice the Transformers franchise’s two most iconic characters would ever take up ion blasters or fusion cannons against each other.

Peter Cullen and Frank Welker have been heard in children’s homes across the United States since the fall of 1984 as the heroic Optimus Prime and villainous Megatron respectively.

They continue to lend their voices to both live-action and animated versions of the characters, and they’ll be infinitely more likely to exchange jokes and old stories than deadly blows from a laser sword during appearances Thursday and Friday at MegaCon Orlando in Florida.
