    Relatively sure that's well beyond life size.

    The general shape of the "building" like bit looks like a crank station type toy I have somewhere that winds up some 4x4 like trucks. That is designed more like a garage built into a mountain, though, rather than a buidling, but it appears to be roughly the same shape. Flat top into a slope on one side, motor rever about where Op's head is, & the garage bit under the flat bit, obviously. I usually just used it w/ Hotwheels for the garage. :lol  Can't remember what the trucks were called.

    2 things: Wonder where it's being built? (well, where Asahikawa is) & 2) where all that snow is coming from?

    Oh, & according to the TFWiki, 16 meters/ 48 feet is about double sized, as RotF Prime is 28 feet tall. Shoot, that pic shows Prime w/ the Jetfire armor as just 40 feet!

    Wasn't it deconstructed later that year? Anyway, 1:1 would mean it was 18 meters, just 2m taller than this Prime. Hell, that's really out of scale.

    They kind of took it on tour... deconstructed it, moved to a new location, repeat, repeat... they've just finished putting it up in Odaiba a few days ago.
