Optimus Prime and Bumblebee at the Miami Marlins


Here is something rather cool – the Optimus Prime and Bumblebee walkaround costumes made an appearance at the Miami Marlins game with the Tampa Blue Rays recently. The characters walked out on to the field in association with the Give Kids the World Foundation to accompany young Timothy Stahlsmith as he made a ceremonial first pitch. They then stuck around to take photos with fans young and old alike.

Check out a photo of their appearance via the Marlins Instagram feed, and a video via Yahoo Sports.

    Those look pretty neat, haha. They look a little silly just standing there and waving their arms around randomly though.
    I want to see Prime throw out a fastball!

    Looks like the costumes walking around the TF ride at Universal Studios.

    Haha that's pretty cool. But I doubt even he can save that team.
    If he starts taking the faces/heads of opposing players off, I imagine that would help.

    Knowing the Marlins front office they probably attempted to trade Optimus and BB for a couple of go-bots so they could avoid paying their appearance fee....
