1,000-pound robot wine rack ready to terrorize the tipsy
One man posts a mammoth robot wine rack on Craigslist and electrifies the imagination of the Internet.
Decepticons and Autobots of the universe, check out this unique Transformers-style wine storage device fit for Megatron himself.
Clifford Wong, a 33-year-old lighting salesperson based in Arizona, put up an advertisement last week on Craigslist for a 6-foot-tall wine rack styled like a herculean man-slaying robot. The massive $7,000 device securely holds 32 bottles of wine, weighs 1,000 pounds, and features an array of mock armaments.
"This will make you the talk of your wine club, home owners association, or alcoholics anonymous support group," Wong says.
An assortment of LED lights adorn the legs, top shoulder gun, and other areas of the beastly creation.
Gearheads may already be able to spot the various "used transmission parts from automobiles and motorcycles" within the gunmetal gray cyborg. "There are even parts on the statue that are stamped with the 'Ford' logo," according to the description.
Wong also puts to rest any fear of pollutants leaking from the Chinese-made robot in the humorous Craigslist ad: "This stunning piece of artwork has been dipped into a solution to neutralize and remove any oil, grime, or chemicals to ensure there are no corrosive chemicals left."
The robot features a truly menacing visage that seems perfect for scaring young children and/or entertaining geeky houseguests. In addition, it doubles as one surefire way to test the resolve of any potential significant other.
