Artist & Performer Peter Kokis 
NY Optimus Prime:  Coming in 2017!

New York Optimus Prime
Coming soon!
My most complex exoskeleton yet!

"This isn't extinction. This is entertainment!"

Parts acquisition began in January 2014.
Mr. Bay wanted the new Optimus to look like a knight in armor.
Though no longer vehicular-looking, Optimus is streamlined but very detailed & layered.
Finding all the right shapes to populate his very complex body is a challenge!   No more wheels!
I expect him to be 550 hours' work, and to weigh 145 lbs. before sword & shield.
It appears his look changes in 'Transformers: The Last Knight', so I will wait until the film's June 2017 release.

"Good luck, Peter Kokis."

His head will be in 'Battle Mode', as a full face would be too fragile.

People continue to photograph me as I walk away, so the look of his back is important.

I am building the 'Knight' version of Optimus.

See you all soon!
