12-Meter Tall Optimus Prime Statue in China

After Transformers Guan Yu in June, Transformers fans in China have erected another Transformers figure, this time it's the Autobots' leader Optimus Prime.

Movie ver. body with G1 ver. head it seems. XD

Standing in Beijing, this statue measures 11.5 meters tall - 1.8 meters taller than Transformers Guan Yu, and it's made of scrapped metal parts from minivans and motorbikes. Not exactly fitting for Prime's image, but the purpose is noble nonetheless. The statue will be exhibited for an event related to recycling in Beijing.

Another Optimus Prime, a home-made one is in Taiwan.
