A Zhejiang mechanic has assembled his very own giant autobot model using thousands of auto parts in an ingenious ode to the Transformers film franchise, reports ENCS.
The man, who has been a mechanic for 20 years and now owns his own garage, must have had some spare time on his hands lately—erecting the 6.5 metre, 3.7 tonne robot statue in only three months. The Transformers effigy now assumes a stoic stance as it stands guard outside the man’s repair shop.
We never ceased to be impressed by the handiwork of China’s amateur engineers, having recently marvelled at this Liaoning farmer’s functional DIY tank, and the Beijing man who made his very own C3PO robot out of trash.
The Transformers film franchise has captured the hearts of Chinese, with the latest instalment smashing box office records, and is a common motif in many of these home-made masterpieces. This latest grand creation is certainly fit to join China’s extensive hall of fame for handmade Transformers monuments and can stand proudly alongside this Hunan father-son team’s super-realistic giant model, and Hebei’s “Bumblebee” scrap-metal idol.
