I’m an old school TransFan, so these Michael Bay, can’t-tell-the-ass-from-the-elbow Transformers are not my cup of tea.
However, Chinese artist Yang Junlin’s sculptures, made of thousands of pieces of welded metal and miscellaneous parts just might make me a believer. I mean, his work almost makes it ok that Megatron is now a tank. Almost.
Yang has created 1,000 of these insanely cool Transformers since 2007, and they’ve become so popular he started his own business with an equally cool-sounding name, “Legend of Iron”. (Take that, wimpy Google!)
