Here are two cool things: Transformers and ice sculptures. 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…
And here’s the sculpture from a variety of angles, all posted at Pedrozo’s site [via Neatorama].
