Using Scrap Metal, Artist Builds ‘Transformers’ Theme Park In China



/>

/>After 10 years, Chinese artist Kefeng Zhu and his team have built an unofficial Transformers theme park entirely out of recycled scrap metal.

/>

/>The ‘environmentally-friendly’ theme park ‘Mr Iron Robot’, located in Jiaxing City, China’s Zhejiang Province, features 600 Transformers-like sculptures assembled from parts of old vehicles and machine tools—such as the classic favorites, Megatron, Optimus Prime, and Bumblebee.

/>

/>“It has been very popular with the kids,” Zhu told Xinhuanet.

/>

/>“I feel very glad when the children visit my park and enjoy the happiness here. I still remember the joy when I play iron toys in my childhood, and I wanted to share that joy with children so I decided to build a theme park.”

/>

/>Just last week on Tuesday 20 March 2012, Mr Iron Robot theme park was granted the status of a tourist attraction.

/>

/>Zhu will continue to make new sculptures for the theme park and do commissioned work for people who like his art.
