Scrap Metal Transformers Sculpture Is Uber Cool

Made by the guys at RoboSteel, an Irish company specialized in creating artistic sculptures out of scrap metal, this Optimus Prime replica is the best I’ve ever seen.

Characterized as “the most amazing steel sculpture ever created by RoboSteel” this Optimus Prime sculpture is made of over 5,000 recycled steel parts, collected from a car, a boat, a motorbike, a dishwasher, a television and others. It’s 2.5 meters tall and weighs an impressive 550 kilograms.

Recycled Optimus Prime has been coated with several layers of strong, protective lacquer, and all the sharp edges were removed. Now it’s ready to guard your home against Decepticons, provided you’re willing to fork out 5,500 euro for it. It may not be as big as the Transformer drying laundry in Taiwan, but it definitely looks better.

    My girlfriend might kill me, but I’d totally put him in front of our door :-)

    This carving is incredible, I went almost identical to Optimus, who would not want him in your living room …

    Not denying its a great piece of craftsmanship or anything, but why go with the Bayformers design? Bay Optimus already looked like walking scrap metal.
    Its an awesome sculpture just wish they went with a different Optimus version.

    Except for the butterfaces.

    Marko: it’s not a carving, you retard. Get a brain, moran.
