10-Foot-Tall Cardboard Optimus Prime: Boxes in Disguise
February 22nd, 2013
What do you do with all of those boxes left over from your countless Amazon orders and other cardboard lying around your house? Don’t just throw them into the recycling bin. Do like this guy did, and build a giant badass robot. Like this one. Yep, this is a 10-foot-tall Optimus Prime made out of recycled cardboard.
Well, cardboard, glue and masking tape. This ‘Cardboard Prime’ was built by Pwarner184, who obviously knows how to work cardboard into geek magic. The shaping of the cardboard is great, and I love how he did the details with masking tape. This is truly papercraft on an epic scale.
If any cardboard Decepticons come anywhere near this house, there will be cardboard flying everywhere as Optimus Prime defends his turf. The only things this robot fears are rain, mildew and perhaps an industrial shredder.
