Father and son turn car parts into incredible Transformers

A Chinese farmer and his son have combined ingenuity, car parts and their country’s love for the “Transformers” franchise to create a $160,000-a-year business making robot sculptures.

It took three years for Yu Zhilin, who has a background in fine arts, to build that first replica in his spare time, utilizing a makeshift workshop, scrap metal and images downloaded from the Internet. Since then, however, he and son Lu Yingyun have refined the process, allowing them to create larger statues, apparently at a pretty steady pace.

Their work is in increasingly high demand in China, with Shanghaiist reporting a steady stream of visitors to their Hunan Province workshop.
