Appropriately, he looks like he's hunkering down for one heck of a snowball fight. Awesome work!

:APPLAUSE: great stuff. I'd like to see a time lapse of it being made. I'd probably enjoy a time lapse of him melting too. :P

Bumblebee needs more yellow snow damn it! What did they do... eat it all?
I for one am disappointed they thought they could get away with a white bee. :roll:

Now that the Asahikawa Winter Festival is over, what will become of these awesome Snowmen? Mirrored below are more of the impressive, "life-sized" snow sculptures from this year's Asahikawa Winter Fest. Note that both Transformers Prime BumbleBee and movie Bumblebee were in attendance. Luckily, they did not wear the same outfit. Enjoy the pics below or, head over to the original post by clicking here.

Awesome artistry but I do have to wonder why they didn't add some color. Very simple to do a solution that they could spray on and have it be non-harmful to the environment when everything thaws. Still,the sculptures turned out amazing. :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE: :APPLAUSE:

I think it looks better un-painted. It looks more natural and snow-like xP.

That looks awesome :D. Would be more awesome if it's a full sculpture but meh one can only hope.

The work-in-progress Starscream's head is kinda disturbing, and the fact that it's next to Megatron only makes it more disturbing. :???:
