The Hong Kong-based Bruce Lee Fan Club and its fans raised $US 100,000 ($AUS 135,500) for a statue to be erected after pleas to the government to honour his legacy. A 2.5 metre bronze statue was erected along the Avenue of Stars attraction near the waterfront at Tsim Sha Tsui. It shows a classic 'ready to strike' Bruce Lee pose, as seen in the 1972 movie Fist of Fury. Hew Kuan-yau, a member of the Bruce Lee Fan Club Committee said, "We want the people to know about the legend of Bruce Lee." The statue was unveiled by Bruce Lee's brother Robert Lee on 27 November 2005, celebrating what would have been Bruce's 65th birthday.
The location was the site of a detour in the 10th leg of the reality TV show The Amazing Race 17.
