    The 2007 movie statue of bumble bee is coming to Sydney for the new 2009 ROTF exhibit.

    Commuters on the Manly Ferry are likely to get a shock Thursday Morning (5 Nov) as they will be joined on the water by a life sized Transformer. The giant robot is arriving in Sydney to be part of a mini exhibition and the launch of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen on DVD and Blu Ray.

    The one-of-a-kind statue, a replica of the Transformer Bumblebee, was made for the original movie by LA based special effects house FXperts. It stands 5 metres tall, weighs nearly three tones, is valued at around A$820,000 and took about six weeks to build.

    After doing a tour of the harbour by barge, the giant Bumblebee will be the centerpiece to The Art of Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen exhibit, a free display that will be at Bondi Beach from Friday until Sunday and will also include behind the scenes photography, the original design work and storyboarding from the movie process.

    If this is frontpaged the correct source of information is Ozformers member "1AZRAEL1" who first posted it here: Giant Bumblebee in Bondi today - Ozformers Transformers Collectors Australia

    But I think he got the information from this website here: Giant Transformer To Attack Sydney Thursday Morning : SCI FI PI // SCI FI Channel

    1AZRAEL1 also posted the link to this gallery of images: http://www.aapimage.com.au/Search.aspx?search=TRANSFORMERS+BUMBLEBEE+SYDNEY%26(IMPORTDATE%3E20091104)&viewtype=Grid

    Looks pretty cool, would check it out if I wasn't on the wrong coast.
