Transformers / Chinese Villager

Transformers: Age of Extinction: Inspired by the smash hit Transformers: Age of Extinction, 11 villagers in rural China have given up farming and started building giant robots standing up to 52 feet high out of spare automobile parts. Sadly, they are not working models, but stationary statues. Still, due in large part to the popularity of the film -- now the all-time highest grossing title in China -- the villagers have sold more than 100 robots, each with a selling price of about $16,000.
