China’s Autobot

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?

    It’s a shame we don’t get cool stuff like that in the U.S.

    Yeah, but you know since its from Chi­na it’s only a cheap knock­off. Like the Chin­ten­do Vii, or Super-Dude. Also I’d be weary of the paint.

    the US does cool stuff like this too… I have to stick up for the US. Here’s a link to a sto­ry about an amry mechan­ic that built his own giant voltron like suit that can move!!
