With Transformers 2: Revenge Of The Fallen on the verge of destroying box office records, it seems that Transformers-related news, no matter how outlandish, is spreading faster than swine flu.
Dailystab.com reports that a rather brilliant man in Lemoore, California has built a life-sized Bumblebee out of old Volkswagen Beetle parts. It took him and a friend the better part of a year to complete, and has caused many a passerby to stop for photos. “Sometimes it seemed as if we would never get through it, all the parts spread out,” said creator Tom Rhoads. “But then it just came together.”
And there’s a hint that an Optimus Prime statue could follow. Take that Gundam!
