That's A Lot of Parts

In the CG Society profile of Alex Jaeger, they published a list of statistics, as gathered by ILM's digital production supervisor, Jeff White. The CG models for "Transformers" were extremely heavy.

That's some serious geometry. But if these stats don't blow your mind, perhaps this one will, as seen on the Trivia section of the "Transformers" IMDb page:

According to one of the CGI artists that created the animated robots at ILM, if you took all the polygons (CGI building blocks) from all the autobots and decepticon models they created at the studio, and strung them end to end, they'd reach to the moon and back and you'd still have enough left over to build the coliseum in Rome two times.

Wow!!! Has you mind been completely blown away?
