Optimus Prime hand puppet!

Suddenly, Spray sang, everybody rates me: because I'm a child of the eighties. And by God and all his floppy tendrils they were right. The eighties seem to be the decade that we just can't help but reminisce over, particularly the cartoons and kids' TV. So it's with little explanation that I present the Optimus Prime puppet...

As the owner of an original Optimus Prime toy and a dedicated supporter of the Transformers, I will not rest until I have gathered the necessary felt and fashioned a crude version of my own. I'd advise you do the same.
