Gardens By The Bay Has A Life-Sized Optimus Prime Statue
From now until 10 Apr, Gardens By The Bay plays host to two characters from the Transformers universe.
The towering Optimus Prime and burly Optimus Primal are in Singapore to promote the upcoming ‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’ film.
Even if you don’t follow the films, a massive robot against the Singapore skyline is still a sight to behold.
Towering statue looks like it’s defending Singapore
Starting today (17 Mar), two giant Transformers statues will be stationed at the Silver Gardens at Gardens By The Bay.
The impressive statues of Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal — measuring 6 metres and 4 metres tall respectively — look like they stepped straight out of the films.
Standing proud against the Marina Bay Sands backdrop, Optimus Prime looks like he’s ready to protect the island against impending enemies.
With his confident stance and stoic gaze, anybody would feel safe under his watch.
Crouched next to him is the muscular Optimus Primal who gazes fiercely into the horizon.
Unlike the quiet confidence of Optimus Prime, Optimus Primal has a more fearsome look with its bared fangs and glowing green eyes.
Statue promotes upcoming Transformer movie
According to United International Pictures, the statues were first unveiled on Thursday (16 Mar).
The life-sized monuments are in Singapore as part of the promotional campaign for the upcoming ‘Transformers: Rise of the Beasts’ movie.
The film will be in cinemas from 8 Jun and features Oscar award-winner Michelle Yeoh as Airazor. The character is apparently a Maximal or beast version of the Autobots which transforms into a falcon, reports The Star.
Fans of the Transformers universe can get hyped for the film with these statues that look like the real deal.
