    Life-Size Optimus Prime Prepares for Battle at Universal Orlando Resort




    Life-Size OptimusPrime Prepares for Battle Atop Universal Orlando Resort’s TRANSFORMERS: The Ride – 3D

    OptimusPrime is ready for battle – towering above the entrance to Universal Orlando Resort’s highly-anticipated, blockbuster attraction, TRANSFORMERS: The Ride –3D. The addition of the authentically-sized leader of the AutobotsThursday morning, May 30, 2013 is one of the finishing touches to the attraction. Optimus Prime stands guard at 28 feet tall and nearly nine tons, beckoning recruits to join the resistance against the invading Decepticons. The mind-blowing, action-packed thrill ride, which was constructed in record time, officially opens June 20 at Universal Studios Florida.

    So, unlike the rumours that we had heard recently, Optimus Prime is not an Audio Animatronic.
    But we have heard that when the new Transformers Meet and Greet opens, it will be the Interactive Megatron and Optimus that debuted at Universal Hollywood recently.

    That is so AWSOME! Shame he doesn't move and speak, but as you can meet him nearby it would look silly having two close together!
    The new Star Wars plot summery:

    Episode 7: Luke discovers that Darth Vader is not his father, and goes on a search for his real father

    Episode 8: Darth Vader is resurrected and goes on Jerry Springer, claiming he is Luke and Leia's father

    Episode 9: Princes Leia is not Luke's sister, making him furious (we all know why...).

    I will admit that it is incredible being able to see this statue on top of the building from almost anywhere in the park!
