Looks nothing like Optimus...or is this a Hipsters re-imaging of him with the wrong colors and everything?

Are we going to find some kid hidden in an attic again, and not 2 states away in a failed balloon attempt?

All I know is eighties Optimus wasn't that color, but I can't speak to newfangled imaginings.

Just goes to show you, even though you may strive for greatness, there's no shortcut.

You would think he would have done a little research.

Whatever hipster douche... Optimus Prime is red and blue. Purple and green are the colors of the Constructicons.

Purple and green is also the colors of Megatron, in one of his incarnations I believe.

Apparently Salt Lake ComicCon took off in a big way, last year when they had it, they were expecting a pretty mild turnout, and it completely sold out.

Maybe in Britain Optimus Prime is purple and green and has bad teeth.

That's nothing compared to my 1:1 scale Hindenburg. I just need the right kickstarter.

That's not the largest, and the largest actually was recognizably optimus prime. I think.

Correct, but the record is for single person. The Asian one was done by 50 people.

Fark balloons - they're a waste. And fark this douchebag.

either this guy could not get enough red and blue balloons or he is color blind.

Yes G2 Megatron is a green and purple Tank.

Balloon sculpture was cool and all, but I was quickly distracted by the More Stories at the bottom with a lady filming her boobs while jogging. maybe not safe for work, but mesmerizing all the same.

Last week I did an exact replica, to scale, of Wrigley Field. Honest to God. I don't have anywhere to put it.

FTA: Poptimus Prime - a play on of the Transformers robot.

Boy am I glad they explained that for us.

The retro-culture balloon artist has a twee little mustache?


IMPOSSIBLE.  IT CANNOT BE.

You routinely suck the life out of parties, don't you?

If I'm ever at a party where the "life" is a conversation about the authenticity of Optimus Prime's colors, yes.

"He said: "I hope that somebody else decides to try to take this art a little further and crush me. Trounce me. Wipe the floor with me." "

You're all witnesses! He consented!

I don't expect this to abate any animosity in this thread, but I remember seeing this link a couple weeks ago.

http://io9.com/japan-is-making-an-official-evangelions-transformers- cr -1567281840

It looks like the balloon sculpture may be an homage to the upcoming NGE/Transformers mashup. Besides, purple and green have always reminded me of Unit 01, no matter how old I get.
