This Father and Son Built Life-Size Transformers …You Have To See How They did It


Let’s say you are a big fan of a certain movie or television show and because of your obsession, you buy any possible memorabilia you can find, even if it costs you thousands of dollars. However, regardless of your effort, we can say that your fan-hood isn’t as intense as this father and son tandem.

Yu and Lu Zhilin of Southeastern China are quite obsessed with the Transformers. Because of that, they have developed a profitable business – making gigantic sculptures inspired by the metal robots of the movie. Using old car parts, the pair is able to create tall robots reaching a height of up to 10 feet. Since Transformers is extremely popular in China, their business boomed immediately.

Recently, the two tried to make something better, bigger, and truly-mind-blowing. They created life-sized replicas of the film’s two robot frontmen – Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

Here is a photo of Lu and Yu with their epic recreations of Optimus Prime and Bumblebee.

To make these giant robots, they collected some unwanted automobile parts.

For several years, Lu has been the apprentice of his father.



And, it seems like he’s learning fast.



From useless car scraps, they made better and beautiful things.


These are just among Yu and Lu’s creations.




After the local media heard about them, they immediately interviewed them to get the story.



The pair made their own Optimus Prime and Bumblebee models based on the original size of what we see in the film.
