    Based on the details, pretty sure this is Cyberverse/Evergreen Optimus Prime, not G1 Optimus Prime.

    hey, disregarding the fact that this is just straight up a g1 prime float, can we talk about this poor soul probably fucking dying or way too high from paint fumes in this picture?

    it's like something out of a fucking weird music video. this poor mindless slave carries our new overlord optimus prime through the streets. he has no choice. for their family to live, they must die. slowly. bitterly.

    I feel like this should’ve been Animated Optimus Prime because it’s in Detroit.

    Cool OptiBalloon Prime!:) 

    And shame on the commentators saying he was trying to lie down.:confused: 
    If they were true fans they would have said he was Transforming.

    I'm afraid I must agree...I keep forgetting Animated was pretty much all focused in Michigan (wasn't Isaac Sumdac from Coldwater...?)

    Know it's a bit counter-intuitive given the name but man I cannot wait for this Evergreen stuff to get phased out. Establishing 'permanent' design/brand baselines for these characters is a laughably anemic idea for a brand whose continued success for over three and a half decades is owed to constant radical reinventions and new additions.

    Not to mention that the G1 designs have been serving the same purpose just fine for years without that annoyingly insincere and manufactured "we're moving into ~☆the future☆~ without forgetting our past :) " type of soft and floaty corporatespeak around the Evergreen stuff, just make the Macy's float G1 Prime my guys.

    Puftimus Prime :) 

    And turkeys too by the look of it.

    Many turkeys died to bring us this Puftimus Prime.

    Gotta say, I agree. The Evergreen designs themselves aren’t bad, but as the default TF designs for the foreseeable future? Meh. That said, it’s cool to have a TF presence at a big event that isn’t Bayverse centric.

    Evergreen/G1 Optimus being paraded around by an army of terrible quality AOE Optimus costumes.
    This feels... wrong

    Does this count as paying respect animated since it\'s in Detroit
