Poptimus Prime: Rejected Transformer

prime

Poptimus Prime here isn’t just the world’s most vulnerable Transformer, rejected from Michael Bay movies because the first helicopter explosion would shred him from head to toe. He’s also probably a world record, set by John Reid. Poptimus (I don’t know if that’s its actual name, but I don’t know how it could not be), is made up of 5,300 balloons and stands 50 feet tall. It’s supposed to be the largest balloon structure ever made by a single person.

Guinness hasn’t recognized the achievement yet, but who cares? Being internet famous is better than having Guinness Records these days anyway. 42 hours well spent, John.
