Shenyang City’s Optimus Prime is the Tallest of Them All

Last year, Robin shared with us the tallest Optimus Prime statue ever made. It was displayed outside of the Bird’s Nest stadium in Beijing, where the 2008 Olympics was held. It stood at 10 meters tall, was made out of junk material, and was brought in from Taiwan.

As impressive as the statue is, yesterday, it had to hand over the distinction of being the tallest Optimus Prime installation in the world. Another Optimus Prime statue was unveiled in China, this time in Shenyang City. This statue weighs in at 21 tons and is 11 meters tall. It is also made of various car parts – taken from 20 cars. Here are some photos of the new record holder for your viewing pleasure.1

Perhaps the Year of the Rabbit is bringing out the creativity in more people, but whatever the reason, I wish that this particular video portrayed Optimus Prime in a better light. […]
