If you were thinking about baking and building a gingerbread house this holiday season to impress your friends, don't waste your time. Because Caroline Eriksson has easily claimed the title of 'most awesome gingerbread thing' for 2013 with this unbelievably magnificent gingerbread Optimus Prime.
We won't even deduct points for her modelling it after the Bruckheimer movie version of Optimus, instead of the beloved original version from the 80s Transformers cartoon and toy line. This incredibly detailed creation was made for a gingerbread "house" competition in Norway where the winner — which better be Caroline — will pocket almost $US6,500. Even without decorations, or a matrix of leadership made from frosting, this hands down wins the holidays this year. [Pepper Kake Galleriet via Geekologie via Reddit]
