Every year in February, the Asahikawa festival takes place, in which sculptors and snow enthusiasts join for a week of white-covered fun. Last year, we saw Autobot leader Optimus' Prime towering over the festivities, in his TF: Prime incarnation, but it looks like official sponsors Takara Tomy has big plans for the 30th Transformers Anniversary: an early release of TF4 toys, probably the First Edition Optimus Prime, and a Transformers Room in the hotel! Check out the machine translated information and mirrored images below, including a couple from last year's festival.

Courtesy of Twitter user Akira T 2716 and YouTube user North44asahi we have images and video from the 55th Asahikawa Snow Sculpture Festival. Takara Tomy has a presence at this event and had several Transformer snow sculptures created including an over 20 meter tall depiction of Optimus Prime/Convoy, which took center stage during the laser and fireworks show. Check out the images and video embedded below.

Looks like there is not going to be a shortage of them Chrome Optimus figures on the market and that Megatron is a ok work of art. Would have liked to see Megs in a action (shooting Canon) pose.
