As the whirlwind of Thanksgiving and the craziness of Black Friday winds down in America, we have a neat piece of news for you all! Over in Michigan, in Detroit's annual Thanksgiving day parade, they featured a brand new giant balloon. Specifically one featuring the autobot leader we all know and love, Optimus Prime! Sponsored by local MI bank Chemical, the balloon is larger than life, standing, or, uh, floating, at several stories tall. The balloon is based on the evergreen design of Optimus Prime, joining the list of new TF promotional products to make use of that design. Take a look at some photos of the balloon, provided by a local news channel, down below!

I can imagine G1 Optimus Prime looking like this in a live action movie. Take that, Michael Bay. :lol: :-P
