Chinese Farmers Become Junkions, Build And Sell Their Own Transformers

This news piece comes to us, courtesy of fellow Seibertronian NuclearConvoy and you can read the full article over on the Lost At E Minor website, right here.

Two farmers, a father and son team, based in China, have been taking scrap metal pieces and creating statues of movieverse Bumblebee, Jetfire and Optimus Prime, among others. Scrap metal has always been big business, for example, cast iron tubs are made from scrap and they go for a pretty penny, but this takes the cake. Farmers Yu Lingyun and Yu Zhilin made around $160,000.00 for their endeavors and they show no signs of stopping now.

Their replicas (and any replicas, for that matter) are a hot item in China right now due to the success of Age Of Extinction, which was 2014's biggest movie and one of China's biggest in history. With fans that rabid, it's no surprise that custom works such as these would do big business.

Bumblebee's my favorite, actually. They did an excellent job of making their model match the CGI as close as possible given the materials. That and he's HUGE. That's a ridiculous amount of work and awesome.

Would I be wrong to call these farmers a "third party" ? Theyre making profit from Hasbro IP without a license. Weve seen these junkyard sculptures created countless times, but this is the first time its so blatently been acknowledged to be a business. Not that I give a crap about IP theft, but I know some here do. ;)
