Aha Moment: Optimus Prime

Feature

Friday, June 29, 2007

If you were a kid in the 1980's, chances are you (or your little brother) played with Transformers. The mind-blowing thing about the action figures – if you were, say, nine – was that you could fold and twist them from a robot into an object, like a plane or a gun. This weekend, the new Transformers movie comes out, and no one is more excited than the man who owes his very name to one of the characters: Optimus Prime. Produced by Dan Kramer.
