Long Description:
Located at G&M Body Shop East, this popular Stillwater sculpture is open 24/7.

From a sign at the sculpture:

This gigantic car part sculpture is bringing visitors from all over the state. When the sculpture was first placed, there were huge crowds around Optimus Prime at all hours of the day and even late at night. In the evening the transformer is lit up (the eyes glow). A smaller-scale Bumblebee transformer is located at the west side G & M Body Shop.
