Optimus Prime

Melonus Prime: why transforming your food is ok

So you were told not to play with your food as a kid. We all were. I still get told not to play with my food now. And I’m no longer a kid.

But I thumb my nose at all those naysayers (except my wife. I won’t thumb my nose at her. I’d get in trouble).

Because the proof, as they say, is in the watermelon sculpting.

Bizarrely, this isn’t the first time I’ve featured watermelon carving (there’s a second time too). Or Optimus Prime carving for that matter. I guess it’s true what they say. They being Qohelet, the writer of Ecclesiastes. There is nothing new under the sun. Though that Optimus Prime link wouldn’t do so well under the sun, given he’s made of ice.

That melon prime was featured first (where I saw it anyway) at That’s Nerdalicious.

Prime Ice

If I were an ice sculptor, a talented ice sculptor, I don’t know how high on the list I’d put “carve a giant autobot” – but having seen this, it’d be up there.

Speakers in disguise

I don’t want these. They’re tacky. But you know, if you’re putting together a Transformer themed bedroom – or a Transformer case mod they might come in handy.

If you do want Optimus Prime speakers you should get em here


Minifigs are great. Especially knitted ones. But if you don’t want to order a customised minifig from brickarms for your A-Team Lego movie you may have to build Mr T piece by piece…
