Happy Birthday Peter Cullen

We here at TFW2005 would like to wish Mr. Peter Cullen, the voice of Optimus Prime and so many others, a very happy birthday! Mr. Cullen turns 74 today.

Throughout his successful and still ongoing career, Mr. Cullen has become known to our community as the voice of Optimus Prime, voicing one of the most iconic superheroes in the original Generation 1 cartoon, the live action Transformers films, as well as Transformers Prime and Robots In Disguise (not to mention many other projects as well). He has well over 150 actor credits for the various work he has done over his many years of experience.

Whether you know him for voicing Optimus Prime, Ironhide, Eeyore, or even the voice of the The Predator (who knew that one?), please join us in wishing Mr. Cullen a very happy birthday!

Hallmark 2016 Grimlock Ornament

It seems this one passed us by – until now! At San Diego Comic Con 2015, Hallmark gave a sneak-peak of what they have in store for their 2016 range of ornaments. One of those ornaments is a Generation 1 toy inspired version of Grimlock! He’s based on his original toy’s dinosaur mode, and will be a must for anyone who is collecting the Hallmark ornaments – or versions of the Dinobot Commander.

Good news for all you G1 fans out there!  TFW member spliffdizzle dropped in to let us know that the 2015 G1 Megatron Hallmark ornament was released this past weekend.  He was also kind enough to share some images of the latest incarnation of this legendary villain. This ornament is faithful to the original Megatron toy, and follows up on the 2014 Optimus Prime ornament.

So, what do you think?  Will Megatron be terrorizing Rudolph, melting Frosty, or scheming with Santa Claus on your tree this year?  Click the link below to check out the images and sound off in the thread!
