DT reader Debbie Yamauchi was freaked out by giant Elmo, but not as freaked out as when she and her brother saw Optimus Prime in China:
In Kunming, China there stands a 40 ft. statue of Optimus Prime (leader of the the Autobots from Transformers--my childhood hero). It is a magnificant tribute to capitalism/robots/marketing in a very unlikely place.
Check out such photographic goodness in the daddytypes tag on flickr.

Good to see that someone else has found this statue. A friend visited it some time ago, took some photos and wrote a story for our website, which we published. A couple of people were disbelieving because at the time ours was the only source available, now of course we have you as evidence too.
Thanks

Juan
