optimus prime china

That Sam Witwicky sure does a terrible job of hiding his Transformer pals from the public eye, doesn't he? Looks like ol' Optimus Prime, who seems to be made out of a million junked cars, stepped out for a breather at Green Dream Park in Beijing, China this week.

The iconic Autobot stands at about 40 feet tall and weighs 6 tons, only slightly smaller than Japan's giant Gundam bot that was unveiled in Tokyo last year. Maybe it's just the Quarter Pounder-chompin' American in me, but something tells me that the red, white and blue-clad Prime would wipe the floor with Gundam in a giant robot street brawl, even if the Japanese mechabot was sporting his beam saber.
