FAO Schwartz, the iconic American toy store which has been rescued from it's parent company, Toys R Us, re opened it's classic New York City store. The ginormous toy shop features rocket ships, giant teddy bears, the infamous giant piano, and a large Optimus Prime! The statue reaches almost 2 stories tall, features lights and movement, and is the corner stone of FAO Schwartz's new Transformers section. The TF section currently has an obvious focus on the Bumblebee movie, but that is sure to change with the coming and going of the different toy lines.

Optimus also features voice lines, recorded by our very own Seibertronian voice actor supreme, Jon Bailey!!

Check out the statue in the photo below from Reuters, as well as the video that shows Optimus in action!

Two stories tall, huh? Doesn't seem much taller than 10 feet,

Overall this is pretty cool, though. I'm happy that FAO Shcwartz survived the collapse of TRU and that they're promoting Transformers in an interesting way.

Quick question: What are those red and grey boxes in between the bumblebee toys in the picture? They look like a grey MP10 Prime to me but I can't really tell. I've never seen anything like it before :-?
