    I just found this (last picture), taken from the E3 show floor. Has anyone heard any Transformers news from there? I can't see why they would randomly put up an Optimus, G1 style no less, if there wasn't some kind of game coming...

    That's the same statue that was at Botcon last year. I wonder where on the floor it's located.

    Cool in:thumb  deed, but I like "Daksterpiece Prime" better - the one that Dak did for transformerscon in Toronto a couple of weeks ago.

    The website seems to make mention of a game by Activision and the movie in 2007, but my Swedish is a bit rusty (I haven't been watching the chef in the muppets lately), and the online translators don't seem to to Swedish to English.

    This is a job for NEVERMORE!!!

    I'm guessing Optimus wanted to see the 360,PS3 and Wii.

    He is Optimus Prime, I'm sure he can get in without a ticket

    I'm sure there is a lot there that doesn't directly relate to a current or upcoming game.

    There's always plenty of stuff and display stands that have no releation to games being shown or coming up. There just there to look cool.

    "There's always plenty of stuff and display stands that have no releation to games being shown or coming up. There just there to look cool."

    Hardly. The ten square feet or so of show floor this should take up costs LOTS of money for whoever placed it there. So there's a reason for it being there. I'm trying to reach my friend who took that picture for an explanation...

    I have another I took with my cell but its not very good quality. The cool thing was that Optimus was right behind a giant skate ramp. When you walked in the room it looked like the skaters were jumping around him.

    It's a really cool statue. I wonder what the "general public" thought about it.
