*********Hall Of Fame Inductee********* Peter Cullen

 

PETER CULLEN: Mr. Cullen is a voice actor best known for providing the English voice for the wise and heroic AUTOBOT leader OPTIMUS PRIME in the popular 1980s cartoon series “The Transformers” and in the 1986 animated film “The Transformers: The Movie”. He reprised the role again in 2007 and 2009 in the live action Transformers movies, and will return for the third installment of the film franchise slated for 2011.

Additionally, he has provided the voice of five other Transformers robots during his career.



*********Hall Of Fame Inductees******** Yoke & Ohno

 

HIDEAKI YOKE: While working at TAKARA TOMY, Mr. Yoke invented the Micro-Robot segment within the MICRONAUTS toy line, which featured the engineering innovation of transformation in action figures that were no more than 3 to 4 inches tall.
The Transformers characters of MEGATRON, SOUNDWAVE and RAVAGE can trace their origins to Mr. Hideaki’s efforts. He acted as liaison between TAKARA TOMY and Hasbro during the early years of their business relationship.

KOHJIN OHNO: Mr. Ohno started his career at TAKARA TOMY, working on the design of the Microman and Diaclone toy lines, which would later become one of the inspirations for the Transformers toy line. Mr. Ohno created SUNSTREAKER, which is considered the first “car to robot transforming toy”. He was also instrumental in the introduction of Beast Wars Transformers for the Japanese market. He helped design toys for both live action Transformers movies. He takes great pride in being the person who designed the largest Transformers toy from Generation 1: FORTRESS MAXIMUS.


*********Hall Of Fame Inductee*********Bob Budiansky

 

BOB BUDIANSKY: While working as an editor for Marvel Comics in 1983, Mr. Budiansky named and wrote the personality profiles for most of the first twenty or so Transformers characters. He then became the editor of the very first TRANSFORMERS mini-series, which led to his scripting most of the next fifty issues of the monthly Transformers comic book.

As he continued working with the brand on behalf of Hasbro, he named and wrote the packaging copy and personality profiles for dozens more Transformers, and developed the story treatments as new lines of Transformers were introduced.
