Optimus Prime Prop
What started as break time banter over a period of some months in the D-Signs + Displays canteen by our transformer fans staff, tuned into a challenge. To build a giant 28ft tall replica prop of the famous Transformer “Optimus Prime” generation 1. Thankfully the challenge was completed, our team worked tirelessly over some months, overcoming stability and safety issues, as the masterpiece was to unveiled at the first ever Heroes and Legends charity event in W5 Belfast. Optimus was re-created using a variety of material, from woods, metals and plastics. Optimus’ eyes are lit up using LED and his chest can also be lit too. He was finished in a variety of painting techniques showing simulated battle damage.
