beast hunters optimus prime

I haven't seen one of these yet so boom let's go

Transformers: Prime characters as stuff I’ve done:

Optimus Prime: fell asleep with my arms crossed while reading an important book

Ratchet: screamed at a spider and tried to smash it with an umbrella and ended up breaking it and then yelled at the spider for making me break it

Bumblebee: stayed up till 2am watching various memes all centred around bumblebee and “what bee says” videos

Arcee: said “you’re a human. Can you build me a large intestine” to a friend when they said I should know which hormone starts ovulation because I am female

Bulkhead: spent all night revising formulas for a test and could only recite said formulas for the rest of the next day

Wheeljack: in maths I changed all the word problems to have the word “bomb” in them

Smokescreen: leapt up in the middle of class and gestured at the board with jazz hands when a photo of Optimus Prime was shown in a physics lesson (it was about transformers- the power grid kind)

Ultra Magnus: pretended an inflatable hammer was the forge of solus prime

Jack: rode my bike to the middle of nowhere and then realised I forgot to bring my book so just sat there for an hour

Miko: dyed my hair red and blue and was optimus for Halloween

Raf: coded a program to quiz people on their knowledge of transformers that was so in detail nobody could pass it without the specific answers

Megatron: staged an overly extravagant swordfight with a pair of metre rulers over who was the most “extra” of the two of us

Starscream: threatened to stab someone with a knife several times for insulting my fashion sense

Knockout: had to watch a video on illegal Street racing as part of a school programme to deter us and all I could think was “damn those cars look cool”

Breakdown: bought a hammerhead shark plush and named it after a hammer brand

Soundwave: listened to cotton eyed Joe at 2am and tried to decipher what the lyrics mean (turns out nobody knows)

Shockwave: poured salt onto my friend’s food and told them it now matched their personality

Predaking: put on a terribly posh British voice when reading quotes in my English class

Arachnid: when we went to an army event with my school and the teacher asked where we should go next yelled “HELICOPTER” at the top of my voice

I’ve said this before, but I'ma say it again.

Y'know how Ratchet always yells, “I needed that!” when he loses something of his?

Well, in TFP Predacons Rising, Ratchet is very upset over Optimus giving into the Allspark. He calls Optimus ‘the one bot he cares the most about’.

So just imagine… watching Optimus jump into the core, followed by all the colorful lights shooting back out, Ratchet whispers shakily, “but… I needed that…”

ya know

i always wondered if optimus had kept his s1 and s2 look before being buff during s3 and ultra magnus was at the same height with him

i mean

they literally have the same type of body (other than the chest, shoulder pads and head) but i wonder if magnus ever felt like he expected to be the same height as OP like “yes i’m big now i can finally be intimidating and stuff” but nooooo 

OP had to get even bigger and i can just see magnus thinking “goddamnit prime you had to die”

you can even see he mentions “you’re looking…robust” (other words - yOU JUST HAD TO GET BIGGER)

idk the height difference he probably thought he was gonna get over is pretty hilarious


look AT HIM.

Happy Birthday, Peter Cullen!

Mr Cullen, I know you will never see and read this, but I’d still like to quickly express my appreciation. I absolutely adore your work, especially Optimus Prime. I know you get that a lot, but one more time can’t hurt. The voice you gave this character is perfect, wonderfully balancing stern authority with loveable sympathy, and the fandom will never be able to thank you enough. Thank you for playing this role for so many years, you have brought us all so much joy. I wish you only the best and a happy birthday, good Sir.

Oh, and just for fun, my favorite Optimus quote is “Somebody’s got to turn off that volcano!”

(Is it still the 28th over there? I hope I made it!)
