Optimus Prime Costume Is Sadly Questionable

We've certainly seen our fair share of Optimus Prime here at Geekologie. We've seen cakes of him in truck form and Transformer form, a sick Optimus computer case, along with a whole bunch of other Transformer costumes. And here comes another. These are screenshots from a video of a guy who made a 10-foot tall Optimus Prime "costume". I put costume in quotations because, while he does stand inside the thing, his limited mobility makes it more of a "wearable statue". I do think it's great looking though. If "great looking" means Optimus Prime is out of proportion and standing immobile in a driveway while kids gawk at him. But still, I've got to hand it to the guy, I could never do anything like that. But it's because I've got better things to do and I don't wear freaking suspenders. Fine, it's because I don't have any friends to help me put the suit on.

A 3:00 video of the guy putting the suit on after the jump. You see him trying his best to 'roll out' at the end.
