    you would be surprised how much of a positive impact a fictional character can have on a guys life at a young age

    to see a character like optimus prime be honored like that by the fanbase wow

    thats just amazing

    Standing in front of that, I'd probably cry like the Double Rainbow guy.

    It should have a loud speaker in Primes voice saying, "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings".
    Still, totally, completely awesomeness here.

    I'd love to see James May Toy Stories do something similar. Perhaps build one out of Legos?

    Wow. A full size chinese KO. Where is the rage over that infringement of HASTAK IP?

    Just kidding. Really.

    Stuff like this is cool.

    Holy crap in a hat.

    EDIT: The inexplicable G1 head on an otherwise wholey movie-inspired body kinda weirds it, though.

    Very cool replica! We've been seeing a lot of these recently haven't we? Anyways, this one is porbably one of the cooler designs. Not too accurate, but the combination of aesthetics is cool.

    I'm trying not to make a cheap joke at China's expense. Really excellent work there.

    Yeah, I get that. It's like outsider art. There's something very naive, yet respectful about this copyright infringement. It really honours Transformers.

    Funny I don't think either Dreamworks or Hasbro have yet made an Optimus on this scale.

    The TF movies seem to have gone down really well over there, remember all those guys that did their cars up as Bumblebee. Maybe for TF3, they can start out at this statue.
