Transformers fans can marvel at two life-sized Transformers robots at the Gardens by the Bay till Apr 10.

Standing at 6m and 4m tall, the statues of Optimus Prime and Optimus Primal tower over the Silver Leaf Garden and are free for the public to view and take pictures with.

Singapore is the first stop in Asia for the Transformers: Rise Of The Beasts Statues World Tour, which is run in the lead up to the next Transformers movie featuring the characters on display.
