Chinese man builds 5-ton Megatron tank just for kicks

#1 Posted by Sexy Merc (41971 posts) - - Show Bio

Apparently, a guy in Huizhou, China decided to build an incredibly detailed 5-ton steel model of Megatron in tank mode from Transformers 2. And, well, that's just what he did.

This thing is damned terrifying. Luckily, it's a mere model and not a functioning tank. Or even worse, a functioning Decepticon. I'm not quite sure why someone would dedicate this much time and energy to building something like this, but hey, power to him for really going for it.

He might not be doing it for kicks tho. Tat shit looks like a straight up war machine! Lets keep an eye out for reports of Megatron attacking Hong Kong in the coming weeks.

Ok that's scary.... 1 Chinese civilian gets bored and builds a deceptacon. What are the other 1,330,999,999 people in China doing? Hopefully nothing too similar.

The guy's going to enjoy his popularity until his neighbor builds a Starscream and tries to usurp all the attention.
