Life-Size Optimus Prime Prepares for Battle Atop Universal Orlando Resort’s TRANSFORMERS: The Ride – 3D

Optimus Prime is ready for battle – towering above the entrance to Universal Orlando Resort’s highly-anticipated, blockbuster attraction, TRANSFORMERS: The Ride – 3D. The addition of the authentically-sized leader of the Autobots Thursday morning, May 30, 2013 is one of the finishing touches to the attraction. Optimus Prime stands guard at 28 feet tall and nearly nine tons, beckoning recruits to join the resistance against the invading Decepticons. The mind-blowing, action-packed thrill ride, which was constructed in record time, officially opens June 20 at Universal Studios Florida.

Me too. I think if I was there at the moment, I'd be compelled to climb up there just to stand next to Prime.

I would stand next to Optimus valiantly. :BOT:

"Iconic"? What do they mean iconic? I don't think he ever did that in the movies.

I'm here in Orlando for the event. We had a special reception and got to ride the ride and shop at the store earlier in the evening. The grand opening commences in the morning and we shall be there.

The Grand Opening is a Red Carpet event that is VIP-only, meaning one would have had to be invited to attend. The event commences at 10am.
