Fans of the 1980s cartoon Transformers are advised to bike or cab it out to Erhuan Xi Lu, about 100 meters north of the Huangtupo flyover.
Optimus Prime, leader of the benevolent gang of car/humanoid robots appears to be cautiously surveying western Kunming.
Children of the 80s will remember that aside from being the benevolent and charismatic leader of the Autobots, Optimus Prime could also transform into an 18-wheel big rig and he was typically armed with a massive laser cannon.
In all seriousness, there is a six- or seven-story Optimus Prime in front of a car dealership on Erhuan Xi Lu. Check it out, it's Kunming's own postapocalyptic Leshan Buddha.© Copyright 2005-2019 GoKunming.com all rights reserved.
