On the afternoon of December 21, 2015 I received one of the best pre-Christmas gifts I could ever hope for. I am planning to build an Optimus Prime replica of the truck seen in Transformers 4: Age of Extinction. To help keep us safe, I hired a lawyer to contact Hasbro (the owners of Transformers) requesting permission to build a replica.
Though 95% of the time requests like these are denied, Hasbro responded to our letter and granted permission to do it! That basically means were are legally allowed to build our own replica of the truck as long as we don’t start using it for promotional purposes.
This was a HUGE milestone in 2015 and probably represents one of the few moments I smiled uncontrollably with excitement. I am beyond thrilled at the foundation we are building as we enter 2016 and have every confidence that our future is about to sky rocket with success. AWESOME DAY!
