    sounds like a perfect addition to the next Not Quite News...

    and that looks pretty crazy too, i can only imagine how long that took to create.

    26 feet? No way, not unless that guy on the right is 11.76 feet tall (yes, I scaled the image to get that number). 13-14 feet, maybe.

    there looks like to be a depth difference between the sculpture and the guys. Prime's feet stick out a few feet to balance the sculpture and they are in front of that. If they were standing up against the sculpture they would be lower down on prime's legs.

    Ice sculpture or loving tribute to clear plastic molds?

    Regardless, this is pretty cool.

    Even though movie Prime is way more cool than G1 Prime, for the sake of an ice-sculpture I do think a simpler design would've helped as this one is... not very accurate.

    Still cool sculpture, though.

    Should've been movie Megatron. That would've been fugging hilarious.

    Movie Megatron would have been hilariously appropriate. Not to be part of the crowd, but i gotta say, he's pretty cool!

    Still doesn't translate into 26 feet. And there's not much of a depth difference here. That shot is pretty darn level, there's no serious upward angle or anything of that sort to screw up the height perspective. And they're standing astride Prime's toes on either side, backed right up against the shins, so they're not significantly closer to the camera.

    Awesome ice sculptures always make me a little sad. All that work or make them, only for them to melt very shortly afterwards.

    Thing will probably shatter worse than TM Megatron.
