Iron Man Plus Panda Is Iron Panda

Iron Man Plus Panda Is Iron Panda

Nearly twenty-feet high, this marvellous sculpture recently went on display in Shenyang, China.

Robert Downey Jr. might be cool and all, sure, but he's not panda cute. Nor is he, as far as I know, twenty feet tall.

Beijing artist Bi Sheng created the work, which was also shown last year in Hong Kong. Below are pics via website Supertouch:

    If only Ironman suits were around in time to help save the Dodo.

    Scrub that, what if Dinosaurs wore Ironman suits! 0_0

      You'd essentially end up with either the G1 Dinobots or the dinos from Dino-Riders

        Now you got me thinking of BattleBeasts too!

          Never saw that one, probably due to the only local commercial channel at the time (GTS/BKN) was this weird mash up of all three networks that was based primarily on one network with selected bits from the other two (generally sport) first was Nine based (with football from 7) then Seven based (with cricket from 9), then we finally got Ten on its own channel only for a long arse wait for the other two to separate out on their own, then soon after we went digital and got a whole bunch more.

          At least we got Agro's Cartoon Connection and Cheez TV.
          Samurai Pizza Cats, Sky Commanders, Centurions, Go-Bots (used to own an audio book of this), Transformers, SWAT Kats, Biker Mice from Mars, Rugrats, Talespin (ooooh weee aaay talespin), Darkwing Duck (let's get dangerous!); Thunder, Thunder Thundercats HO(admittedly I wanted to kick Snarf in his snarf-snarfs)....god I miss these and so many more....most probably look like shit now...damn nostalgia trip...want a refund.

            Battlebeasts were a toy/game (tho they did feature in 1 Transformers episode). This is how they look.. http://paperspaceships.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/04/BattleBeasts.jpg

            Pretty much like that Panda up thar^

      Yes, however unless those suits converted the ATM into food and water, it won't really help :)

      Dinosaurs likely died more so from starvation then actual climate change/ big rock syndrome. (which caused the food scarcity).

    Panda: I know Kung-Fu.
    That's two more movie series you can add.

    Hey I stumbled upon that when I was in Hong Kong last year. Guess its on tour like that giant rubber duck.

    God, yes, more of this art in public places, please.
