    Interesting choice of colors but availability might not have been there, but that guy's pretty committed to it.

    Wow! It looks exactly like Optimus Prime!

    This isn't a lame and cynical attempt to use the current Transformers buzz to increase promotion of himself at all...

    Impressive giant generic balloon robot, sure, but Google Image 'Balloon Optimus' for considerably more accurate, if smaller, multiple examples of the Autobot leader made from balloons.

    Kinda reminds me more of that purple 'Megatron' from the Battle Masters fighting toy.

    If you squint really hard, stand 50ft away from your monitor, dim the lights and shut your PC down, you can really see the resemblance.
