Optimus Prime Iced In Zurich

Optimus Prime Iced In Zurich

09/12/2010 0 By Administratus Prime

Twitter user @Gamemoredude from Zürich, Switzerland had posted this photo of an 8 meter (about 26 feet) tall ice sculpture of the Autobot leader Optimus Prime. Completely unrelated, but you would be totally justified if Transformers and ice sculptures were your two favorite things.

So justified, in fact, the odds dictate that one of you reading in this adores Transformers and worships at the feet of giant ice sculptures. I am about to make your day, hypothetical reader.

You’ve probably already connected the dots, but artists Antti Pedrozo and Michel de Kok have carved a large, icy Optimus Prime. After eyeballing how the statue towers over its human creators, I’d say it’s at least fifteen feet tall.


The cinematic Optimus hits theaters again on July 1, 2011 in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, but you can check out pictures of his frozen counterpart now after the jump.

To give you a sense of the scale…
