Check Out How This Dad And Son Team Turned Trash And Scrap Metal Into Transformers

Submitted by: fancylad 2 months ago in Lifestyle Tech


From Great Big Story: In 2010, Chinese farmer Yu Zhilin and his son Yu Lingyun opened up their own metalworking shop in the country's Hunan Province. Inspired by the futuristic robots from the movie “Transformers,” the pair began fashioning original statues from scrap metal. Their first design took about a month and a half to build, but they’ve since created an impressive array of statues, giving new life to discarded car parts along the way. It’s not just the success of their new business that makes this father-son duo happy; the craft itself has brought them closer together.

Absolutely incredible! Sadly my HOA would totally have something to say about this adorning my front lawn but it would be worth it!

God I love the smell of fux!  Welding is such a meditative experience.  These guys are following a very similar path I took.  Starting out with expression through mimicry then evolved into more personal concepts.  Love the Eagle piece they are working on.

I know this is not a father/son one, but this looks the business.
