Artist creates Transformers-inspired theme park

Universal Studios has a pretty fun Transformers ride, but we're a little more impressed by the Mr. Iron Robot theme park and its 600 handmade autobots.

Zhu Kefeng could be the biggest Transformers fan you'll ever see.

Inspired by the robots in the popular Transformers franchise, the 49-year-old Chinese artist led a team that built more than 600 giant sculptures using recycled automobile parts.

These sculptures, created over a period of 10 years, now reside at a theme park in Jiaxing City in China's Zhejiang province. Also known as Mr. Iron Robot theme park, it has since become a tourist attraction that's popular with kids.

While the sculptures lack the polish and the high-tech wizardry of those at the official Transformer ride at Universal Studios, there's no denying the charm and effort of these giant works of art. Here's hoping that Hasbro feels flattered and doesn't enter litigation mode when the company learns of this theme park.
