What can you do with 6 tons of scrap from recycled cars? What else build a 38 foot tall transformer! China built the robot in disguise in celebration of “Green Dream Park”, to show that they are a cleaner and greener country. The huge replica is made from 6 tons of recycled car parts and stands by Beijing’s Bird Nest Olympic Stadium, here’s a picture.
Japan built a similar robot but from the Gundam Universe for the 30th anniversary of the anime last year around the same time. The Gundam bot was not from recycled materials and it stood a staggering 59 feet tall and was complete with lighting.
Now the question is why can’t we do something just as cool? I will be more than happy to build a giant Voltron out of soda cans if some one would give me the chance. Anyone with me?
