First seen at BotCon 2010, Optimus Prime of the upcoming Transformers: Prime cartoon has made his second public appearance at the 2010 San Diego Comic-Con. This time, however, he isn't showing up as a mere image, but rather as a full-sized three-dimensional giant statue outside the entrance to the convention.

The first image of it appeared on Twitter from a fan named Soundwarp. Even though it was still being constructed at the time the photo was taken, we can clearly see that this Optimus bears a resemblance to his Movie counterpart, as well as featuring some of Animated OP's aesthetics mixed into the design (though personally, I think the arms also kinda look like TransTech Optimus Prime).

An image of the completed statue was taken by user Supreme Convoy of This image gives us a good close up look at his legs and torso.

More images of this behemoth can be found on both TFW2005 and, showing several views of this giant from many angles. Particularly, the shots of his back side reveal that he has smokestacks running up his back, as well as an extra set of windows on his back like Ginrai (or the Powermaster Optimus Prime small robot figure).

that sort of gives us an idea of the transformation. perhaps the torso flips around during transformation or perhaps something completely different. i seriously cant wait for transformers prime. sounds good and i want to get a full look at the asthetic of it. seems to be movie design with animated asthetic from what we've seen so far

Or maybe the windows on his back become the truck's side windows.

could verry well be. it would make mor sence. or perhaps just like laser prime, pm prime, rid prime etc they could be folse windows on his chest to evoke the clasic look. ither way i cant wait to see this guy fully rendered and transforming on screan.
i'm hoping that his figure is as complex as the leader rotf figuer as it looks much like it in some aspects.

Any supposed truck mode renderings? Perhaps on drawings? Or, outlines with both modes?
