If it wasn't for the wheels and the Optimus Prime forehead crest, I'd be very skeptical about calling this an Optimus Prime costume. Either way, it's fun seeing this reported in the news as an Optimus Prime costume. Fun stuff!

Later in the pageant, Miss Japan came out in an identical outfit with more paint apps. :D

Ermm.... If you say so? :???: She must've been using a Hasbro stock photo as reference; she's mistransformed.

Ha ha. Very funny. 8-|

Well, AOE Prime certainly looks better than this.......mess. I don't think this can even be called an Optimus Prime costume. I do think it can be called Prime's spare parts though.

All I'm seeing is a robot Uncle Sam in drag. Oh, and he's a pirate, apparently. Now I'm just waiting for word that that's the final AOE Optimus design, because really, how could anyone see that as Optimus if they hadn't seen something we hadn't?

am I the only one creeped out by this? I mean look at the face ... :shock:

The photo must have been taken by the guy who does the stock photography for Hasbro, since this is utterly mistransformed to the point of barely resembling the actual product.

She looks better than the Bay version, no render farms needed either. On a side note, the original diaclone Prime, he wasn't red and blue right? Did Hasrbo apply the classic Optimus paint scheme to be more "American"? Or was it the Japanese via Takara?

Optimus Prime? Maybe. If Optimus Prime transformed into a ride-on lawn mower or something, I suppose... :-/

Holy shit that chick is smoking if you check out her other pics... that's hot to know she'd be into doing up that sort of get-up and isn't some ugly nerd, haha.

That... is supposed to be Optimus Prime?

I wouldn't have even known without the description. >:oP

Seems like shameless pandering and attention-whore behavior... which, I guess, is in line with this sort of competition. I'm just saying she/her manager chose it more because of popularity than because it "represents America". :roll: When you think about it, the effect would be lost if she simply dressed up as Michael Bay...

That's what I don't get: why is the costume so ugly and generic? You could put this on a fat chick with little loss (in fact, this outfit would probably look BETTER on a bigger girl, Optimus being a truck and all). I think she should have gone for less kibble and more skin. :-?

Well, the worst part is that she is far more manly than Bay's Optimus Prime :-(

Now normally, I bash the Movie shenanigans, but this is that one thing that I have to disagree with (shocker). At least Movie Prime's design is recognizable of Optimus Prime. Put the design next to this swimsuit, and I bet you millions of people would point out Movie Optimus Prime as Optimus Prime than that swimsuit.

Oh wow that was an Optimus Prime costume all along? I couldn't make it out when I first saw a glimpse of her costume on TV. I think her face is where the matrix should be?

National costume round is to represent the culture and heritage of the country. This outfit does not serve the purpose at all.

That's the funniest thing I've read all month! Well played MCutter! xyl360 - It is QFT, which is what makes is so hilarious.

Is that a grenade on her left hip?????

I could think of a billion things that represent American culture before Transformers.
