Anyone can build Optimus Prime out of an old semi and a glint of All Spark. But it takes a true craftsman, a visionary, an auteur (and OK, maybe a clown) to build him out of balloons.

Some see an Optimus Prime balloon sculpture that stands seven feet tall, others see a wasted afternoon. I see David. I see Venus de Milo. I see The Thinker. I see a creation that could stand proud in the finest wax museums and maybe even the Niagara Falls branch of Ripley's Believe It Or Not. [Brian Craft via Walyou via technabob]
