Man breaks world record with 50ft Optimus Prime balloon statue

London, May 5: A New York-based artist has broken the world record ‘for the largest balloon sculpture ever made by a single person’ by making an implausible sculpture of Transformers robot Optimus Prime.

John Reid took 42 hours to create the 50ft tall Transformers character statute from 4,302 balloons at the 2014 Salt Lake Comic Con in Utah and named the art Poptimus Prime, the Daily Star reported.

The artist revealed that he wants someone to challenge his feat by building an even bigger piece. (ANI)
