Our coverage of the Transformers Rise Of The Beasts Statues World Tour now is taking us to Mexico!
After the presentation of the ROTB statues at SXSW, Texas in the US, Singapore, Brazil, Australia, Spain, Germany, Las Vegas, and Chicago, now the statues have landed at Perisur shopping mall in Mexico City.
The statues will be on exhibit for all public starting today May 24th until June 8th at the main entrance of Perisur. Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal statues were on display and, while the new Mirage statue was not brought to this location, Mirage was present in his car alt mode.
The images come thanks to Union Transformex and Comunidad Transformers Mexico on Facebook. Local Mexican fans of both communities really made a Transformers party around the statues reveal with cosplay, toys and local celebrities.
See all the images after the jump plus a video of the statues reveal. Stay tuned with this space for more updates!
What is that mystery box on the ground between Optimus Prime's feet? Is that the trailer?
Fuck this was so cool to see in person. I didn't want to leave! They're both so detailed and large. Even friends and family who I texted pics afterwards admitted that they looked super impressive and cool. I had to restrain myself from running up and stealing pieces lol.

I'm guessing once the tour is complete they'll find their way to either Universal Studios or some other permanent location that's already agreed upon. Maybe that dude in Georgetown can hold on to them.
No statues in Canada though…
I thought it's a Transit sightning…
This just reminds me that we don't have enough bus-formers. I'd love a Double Decker Bus bot.
