Student Creates a Badass Cardboard Optimus Prime for a Class Project


Paul Warner is a geek and he’s going to school to further his studies in geekery.  For a class project he created a 10-foot tall Optimus Prime statue out of cardboard!  It took him nearly a year to create, and in the end he didn’t find it to be up to his standards, but I think the kid did a bang up job.  It’s a little off in proportions, but if you slapped on a gnarly paint job I think it’d make a great addition to your collection.

You can check out a few additional shots out after the break, and if you want to learn more about the project head on over to this link (Source).  You’ve been wishing you found this in the trash…
