Optimus Prime Quotes From The Transformers Autobot Leader

These Optimus Prime quotes prove why he is an incredible hero and such an inspiration to us humans!

The Transformers (in particular, the hero, Optimus Prime), were all over lunch boxes in the 80s!

They dominated children’s TV sets, their toy boxes, and even their clothes!

The Transformers began as a toy line from Takara Tomy and Hasbro and then spawned an entire media franchise.

It was hard to avoid The Transformers mania, but even if you aren’t familiar with all the ins and outs of the transformer universe, you have likely heard the name Optimus Prime.

Optimus Prime is the strongest of the Autobots, who were benevolent, sentient, self-configuring, robotic life-forms.

As the leader of the main protagonists, there are plenty of Optimus Prime quotes from movies like Transformers (2007), Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (2009), Transformers: Dark of the Moon (2011), Transformers: Age of Extinction (2014), and Transformers: The Last Knight (2017).

This is also the order to watch the movies! 

BumbleBee, which premiered in 2018, is a bit more of a stand-alone movie in which a different Autobot gets the spotlight, but of course, Optimus Prime still makes an appearance and offers us some insightful and inspiring quotes!

The fictional character was created by the Transformers franchise and portrayed by actors including Peter Cullen, Garry Chalk, Neil Kaplan, David Kaye and Jake Tillman.

Don’t forget to also check out these hilariously grouchy ‘Grumpy Old Men’ quotes.

So, just in case you are wondering when Optimus Prime became bad, the answer is during the movie, Transformers: The Last Knight. 

He actually became a villain known as Nemesis Prime, after being brainwashed by Quintessa, a member of the race that created the Transformers.

After some epic battling, Optimus Prime is able to break Quintessa’s control, thanks in part to hearing his BumbleBee’s voice right before delivering a death blow.

I won’t ruin the end for you in case you want to spend some time binge-watching these movies, which you can do on Vudu, Amazon Prime Video, and Apple TV!

If you are feeling really nostalgic and want to watch OG Optimus Prime (Transformers: Generation 1), then you can check out Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

Many of us wonder if there will be a sixth film, especially based on how the fifth one ended.

Well, in May of 2020, Paramount announced that They would release a new Transformers movie in 2022!
