It was also made in eight months! That's how long artist Robert Burden — whose amazing, intricate painting of classic toys are always wonderful to behold — took to create this giant masterpiece of the Autobot leader.

Then it took over 2,000 photos to assemble this time-lapse video of the painting coming to life, which clocks in a mere 2:25. Whether you feel it took eight months or 145 seconds, either way you have to admit this thing is gorgeous.
