Life Sized Optimus Prime Statue Stands at 22 Feet
Halloween may have passed, but it doesn’t mean that various creations aren’t still popping up that are simply out of this world. As a perfect example we now see the Life Sized Optimus Prime statue that has greeted Trick or Treaters last Halloween.
Created by Brady Gage of Monkey5Studios at Newberg, OR, this Optimus Prime is a beautiful Transformers creation that deserves a lot of respect. As it was presented, it stands to 22 feet, yet if it was standing straight up, it would even be as high as 25 feet.
Optimus Prime Generation 1 was created mostly with 1×2’s, 2×4’s reused foam and Gorilla Tape. Moreover, to help with the Food drive, additional Transformers costumes were made of Bumblebee and Ironhide which were created out of cardboard and additional tape.
All in all, these local Transformers Halloween statue and costumes has greeted over 2200 Trick or Treaters and helped raise over 350 pounds of canned goods for local shelters. I guess the Transformers do care.
