Aiming to bring viewers a step closer to their favourite hero – Optimus Prime, the makers have made a whopping 12-foot high statue that weighs about 300kg. Warrior, fearless and righteous – Optimus Prime is the ultimate leader of the Autobots who are constantly raging wars against a rival faction of robots called the Decepticons.
Under a special license from Hasbro (American multinational that is one of the largest toy makers in the world), this figurine is made to exact design specifications. The viewing experience of this complex figurine has been enhanced by intricate lighting. Encased in a special package, a dedicated container has been hired to transport the robot locally around India. Optimus Prime will tour six cities, starting with Pune and eventually making his way to Mumbai, Delhi, Bangalore, Chennai, and Hyderabad.
To allow you to pick what you consider is the best choice to win, we've collected sound clips of the nominees or an image gallery of characters/actors, where applicable.
You can ONLY vote ONCE per category. Choose wisely as you will NOT be able to change your vote once it has been cast.

ABOUT OUR JUDGES
Hot Topic:It all started in 1988. A ton of teen retail accessory stores filled the malls, but there wasn't a cool music-inspired accessory store for both guys and girls. Then came Hot Topic. As 1990 rolled around, adding apparel seemed like a no-brainer. What better way than to add the ultimate music fan essential - band tees. Imagine how our customers flipped when they were able to get Bauhaus, The Cure, TSOL, and Depeche Mode T-shirts at Hot Topic. Within a year, we had about 50 different band titles, along with rock-inspired clothing lines like Lip Service and Serious. As we expanded, we discovered that customers were equally drawn to the underground cartoon, cult movie, and comic book scenes. It was a unique culture fans could call their own, so we brought the world of South Park, Care Bears, Superman, SpongeBob and tons of other pop icons into our Hot Topic stores.

Q: It’s been more than 2 business days and I don't see my design on the site. What’s going on with my design?
A: We review every submission we get before they are made live for viewing and rating. We sometimes reject designs for obvious reasons. If you’ve done any of the following don’t even bother asking why your design was rejected.

VOLO — Imagine watching the new “Transformers” movie from a Transformer.
One lucky Volo Auto Museum visitor will do just that.
The winner of a sweepstakes ongoing now will drive Bumblebee, the beloved Camaro that Shia LaBeouf’s character, Sam Witwicky, bought in the original 2007 film. The ride will begin at the museum, 27582 Volo Village Road, and travel to the McHenry Outdoor Theater at Chapel Hill and Lincoln roads on the opening night of “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” anticipated to be June 27.
The winner and a date not only will get to drive and ride in the highly recognizable yellow and black ’77 Camaro, but also will be provided with free admission to the show as well as dinner from the concession stand.
“Normally our Star Cars are behind the museum ropes, untouchable,” said Brian Grams, museum director. “This is an exceptionally rare and exciting opportunity.”
Each museum admission wristband purchased between now and June 12 is a potential sweepstakes entry. Enter the number printed on the admission wristband at www.volocars.com/transformers-sweepstakes.htm. The winner must be 18 and hold a valid driver’s license. The winning entry will be announced June 13.
“I’m excited about this. This is cool,” said Scott Dehn, owner of the McHenry Outdoor. “Brian approached me with the idea and I said ‘Let’s do it!’”
“Transformers: Age of Extinction” is the fourth installment in the series that begins with an adolescent Sam Witwicky discovering that his first car, a somewhat bedraggled Camaro, is, in fact, a Transformer named Bumblebee.
“Some people have nicknamed it the Beater Bee,” Grams said of Volo’s screen-used car. “It’s definitely one that people recognize … it has character.”
Showing up at “Transformers: Age of Extinction” in the car that started it all should make for an exceptionally memorable movie-viewing experience, he added.
“The winners will be in the spotlight,” Grams said. “I hope they like attention.”
Volo Auto Museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and features roughly 300 classic, antique, muscle and Hollywood cars — all indoors. For information, visit www.volocars.com or call 815-385-3644.
