Porsche is celebrating Transformers: Rise of the Beasts… in style.
At the site of SXSW 2023, are two life-sized statues of Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal. It’s quite a sight to behold.
You can check out the images, after the jump.
Special thanks to the social media users who uploaded the images.
Update: Additional images added thanks to @cheerkey777, @hidden_geamz on Instagram. We also have additional information about the statues thanks to artist Andrea Spencer Sawyer on Facebook. Optimus Prime is about 20 feet/6 meters tall and Optimus Primal is 13 feet/3.9 meters tall but 14 feet/4 meters deep. Both are made or resin and fiberglass.
The official movie website has updated two of the tour dates, which is good to see, as the Sydney date was 2 days too early… which could have annoyed some fans who planned to be in Sydney on the 27th, and then missed out on seeing the Statues.
(it was also good to see that they moved Mexico out of the Europe listing)

Thanks for the images, @Fc203 !
How Porsche Recreated A Rare Car For Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts
I need to see an Arcee poster before i fully invest interest…
Man those statues look so cool.
Bay isn't even promoting the movie, he only showed up on set once in Peru and that's about it. He's not the type of guy to hijack someone else movie.
As for the humans, it looks like only Noah and Eleina will be the main human characters. What other human characters are in the movie will be with very limited screentime in the NY section of the movie.
As for Lorenzo, I would take everything he says with a massive grain of salt.
To be fair it was a dying franchise. I didn't really like the first or second one, although snakeyes was terrible, which means something coming from a transformers movie fan (it was the reason I watched the first two though). But the failure of Snake Eyes probably would have resulted in the same thing as if they had just made a new GI Joe movie, which they probably couldn't since Channing Tatum's character
and the Rock probably has no interest since he's probably still grieving the loss if Black Adam and the subsequent DC universe that would have been led by him. I could be wrong but if I remember correctly they're rebooting the series soon.
Ugh, I heard about those and I'm hoping they managed to change enough so that this movie isn't trash. I'm hoping at the minimum, it can be redeemed by cool action sequences, like the films before
I've noticed Primes's rims aren't chromed this time around. Pretty sure his FL alt mode has em chromed…
Just got home from going to Austin, this was totally worth the 3 hour drive.

Yeah, based on now confirmed December test screening leaks, you will be thoroughly satisfied. Trust me.
I really hope it comes to Glasgow, Scotland
Almost forgot that Hasbro ruined G.I. Joe also.
SnakeEyes was the biggest Bullshit I have ever seen.
I wanted G.I. Joe 3. I liked the Storm Shadow Actor from
Movie 1 and 2 A LOT. Wanted to see more of that.
Instead we get that Bullshit SnakeEyes, where I lost
all Interest in the Storm Shadow Character.
From what I remember, yes it did
The colors we associate with some G1 characters are very iconic race liveries. Here's Martini Racing (Jazz) on a Lancia Delta HF Integrale, and Alitalia Airlines (Wheeljack) On a Lancia Stratos HF.

Oh, it's not missed – it's intentionally left out.
Amidst all of the hype somehow it gets missed that Lorenzo is also the same producer who OK-ed Snake eyes: Origins. I get that he's part of the brain trust who makes certain more of these movies get produced- and ultimately you can't win them all- but Transformers seems to be his only franchise that works. Please Paramount, get another team together for a (good) GI Joe movie. With Classified doing well and a resurgence in interest overall due to the movie (whether it failed or not) and figures, now is the time to take another look at the Joe franchise on screen.
My biggest worry is that I hope it still follows the "Bumblebee" model for storytelling–let the Bots have their character moments, have plentiful speaking robots, use the characters shown/promised in the trailer consistently and satisfyingly throughout the film…
I know this new director is a young guy, and rumors that some bots like Cheetor won't even have voice actors/speaking parts has me worried that Bay/Lorenzo have hijacked this and taken it back to the BS from the first era of films where they show a lot of shit in the trailers, the parts we want to see amount to maybe 5-10 min of the whole film, half the bot roster is mute cannon fodder, and then most of the film is annoying human hijinks that no Transformers fan going to see a film called Transformers gives a shit about…
So as long as the new crew (Autobot, Maximal and Terrorcon) all feel fairly fleshed out and there's enough action and drama between the bot characters… then I think we might have a solid hit here.
I think the movie will do just fine. Here on the site we are but a fraction of the possible audience that will see this movie.
I believe it will do well enough to get the next two movies in this new trilogy. If it makes like 600-700+ milion especially if it gets a china release.
