Motto: "Til All Are One."
Weapon: Dual Laser Cannon
Transformers fans creativity and ingenuity never ceases, as shown here by Robot-Models.com. This is a 7 foot tall, 485 pound statue of Transformers the Movie Autobot leader Optimus Prime made completely of used car parts. This piece is part of a collection of Transformers created completely out of recycled parts.

But this Prime isn't the only figure made. They've also created a movie Bumblebee in a smaller size.

These pieces are for sale. Prime goes for the bargain price of $4,838.71 USD, plus shipping, and BB for the more achievable price of $193.55 USD.

Now that is some great kick ass use of recycled parts. WELL DONE :APPLAUSE:

Longs for the days of G1 where we only had to worry about Megatron, Soundwave and Laserbeak wanting to be Autobots, Swoop calling himself Tracks and Slingshot calling himself Slingslot!

Question for everyone who can answer: What are the wheels made of? Im looking at it and first I thought maybe a golf cart or a forklifts wheels, but the pattern throws me off. Any ideas?

OMG!! That thing is awesome, it is odd how they could form recycled car parts to look like Optimus. Seems a little like the voyager gold one!

(Accidentally created another thread about this)

:BOT: I love this "statue." If I had the money and space, I'd totally buy this for the garage. Or perhaps lawn ornament. :CON:

485 pounds, so thats about 240 kilograms. You'd need to have a forklift or similar just to move the bugger about!

It's a very impressive piece of work, I cannot imagine the time and planning that must've gone into it's creation.

I lean towards that. Let's face it, a G1 Prime is pretty boring aesthetically...
It finally happened. The Chicago Cubs won the World Series. Yes, I cried.
