I never had much luck constructing gingerbread houses. They were decent enough, but certainly wouldn't win any prizes. That's not the case for Caroline Eriksson. She took top prize at a gingerbread "house" competition in Norway. The professional 3D/compositing artist earned $6,500 by using 700-800 individual pieces of gingerbread to construct Optimus Prime, the version seen in Michael Bay's live-action Transformers films.

Starring in "Transformers 4" is Jack Reynor in the starring role of a race car driver. The talented and beautiful Nicola Peltz has been cast in the female lead role of Reynor's girlfriend. Mark Wahlberg has signed on to play Nicola's father Flynn Vincent. Sophia Myles will play a major role as a scientist. Peter Cullen returns as the voice of Optimus Prime, and Glenn Morshower reprises his role as General Morshower. Kelsey Grammer was recently cast as the lead villain named "Harold Attinger". Directors Guild of America DGA Award winner Michael Bay will return to direct his fourth installment of the film series from a screenplay written by Ehren Kruger.

TRANSFORMERS 4 will be directed by Michael Bay, from a script written by Ehren Kruger. The cast includes: Mark Wahlberg, Kelsey Grammar, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci and Jack Reynor. Set for release on June 27th, 2014!

Age of Extinction will probably hit another Billion dollar mark! Can't wait to see some Dino action!

The question is… can I eat it?

@TheBlackNerd 'Age of Extinction will probably hit another Billion dollar mark!'

Probably.
I'd say almost it's almost in the bag.

Then again 'Duck Dynasty', 'Jersey Shore' and 'Here Comes Honey Boo-Boo' are some of the top watched shows on TV and the stars earn over 400 million in merchandising so that's not really saying too much about the quality.

Just that people will pay to watch anything.

"Catch me if you can, I'm Optimus Prime the ginger bread man, Autobots Roll out!".

You guys are looking at the stupid cookies when none are checking out the hot blonde. You guys are such nerds.

Does anyone really care about these great visuals, total crap movies outside of children, weak minded adults, and the mentally challenged?

Wow!! This garbage pulls in a billion bux per movie.

Do we need any other proof that the Apocalypse is near?

Norwegian. Such a romantic language. Really gets you in the mood.

Oh no I can't make good gingerbread houses, but look at this incredible optimus prime gingerbread man I made. Come one.

@Scorpion8125

STFU, thanks
mgeoff88 - 12/21/2013, 10:02 PM
That is so awesome and delicious looking at the same time, ha ha!

She is really cool for creating that. And she is easy on the eyes too.

@Wulfenmarc Nailbiter wrote not being good at building gingerbread houses about himself. Caroline didn't say that.

Honest mistake.

Which we know which category you fall into...

My sympathies.

Actually Transformers Dark Of The Moon was pretty decent(If people could survive Labeouf's ''actomg'').Now Age Of Extinction has my interest at some point.But damn that is a nice design made of gingerbeard.Optimus would be proud

EpitomeofAwesome - 12/22/2013, 10:01 AM

SCURVYDOG619 - 12/22/2013, 10:28 AM
If there was a Photoshopped word balloon of that gingerbread Optimus saying, "Hey Megatron...EAT ME!"...

Opportunity lost...lol

Ah, the god of materialism hiself, Primus Optimum.
Always thinking of him/her at this time of year (I think Primes a "her", actually. She does have a creation matrix inside her. That usually qualifies one as female).
Merry Christmas.
Time to open the advent calendar, before it is midnight.

Wow, the world's first edible Transformer!
