The Colonel Sanders figure that was fished out of Dotonbori River back in March was officially unveiled to the media after undergoing repairs.

KFC Japan is currently planning on going public with the Colonel figure during the Aqua Metropolis Osaka 2009 Festival that begins on August 22nd. What happens after that still hasn't been decided, but it appears likely he'll be put on display at Koshien Stadium.

The work done on the Colonel Sanders figure was handled by JCP, a non-profit that specializes in repairing cultural assets.

Sponichi reports that KFC Japan will also be selling a miniature version of the Colonel Sanders figure as a mobile phone strap.
