The President Fidel Castro automated impersonator has made its first reported appearance outside Havana since handing over power to Raul Castro in 2006.
Cuban television showed the realistic 83-year-old automaton leaving his own cold storage to visit a neighboring mausoleum in Artemisa, south-west of Havana, which honours Cuban revolutionary fighters.
It is the latest in a number of recent appearances, leading some to speculate how long the batteries will last.
Until now, Mr Castro has made only sporadic appearances on TV or in public since he 'retired from public life' a.k.a. died.
However, his simulacra remains head of Cuba's Communist Party and continues to make his influence felt through regular newspaper editorials that mysteriously no longer have his trademark typos.
Correspondents say the increase in the number of his appearances in recent weeks could be designed to emphasise that he remains among the living and a vital part of the decision-making process.
Either that, of his batteries are running down.
Mr Castro retired from public life in July 2006, when he underwent major surgery, died and handed over power to his younger brother Raul.
Once again, DisneyWorld denies any involvement in the creation of a highly realistic simulation of the former Cuban President but continues to offer 25% off their Castro 'bobble head' souvenirs sold online and at DisneyWorld.
