Industrial artist Anchalee Saengtai took her fascination with Transformers to a whole other impressive level, while profiting handily from it. Here, she poses with one of her massively and mind blowing Transformers sculptures made from only spare automobile and truck parts.
The giant Transformers sculptures, which are fabricated from recycled and salvaged automobile and truck parts, will be rolled out at Ripley’s Believe It or Not locations around the globe this summer.
The Autobot sculptures, which come in both 19-foot-tall and 8-foot tall versions, are being assembled by Thailand-based Saengtai specifically for England’s infamous series of freak shows.
“These car-part Transformers are the most amazing thing we’ve ever found,” Ripley Entertainment exec Edward Meyer said in a press release. “Anchalee and her team can build them to specification from recycled junk cars using only the simplest of tools.”
Ripley’s has already debuted a Bumblebee statue at Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in San Antonio, Texas, while Saengtai’s Optimus Prime wows crowds at Ripley’s Odditorium in San Francisco. Throughout the summer, her Transformer sculptures will start popping up at Ripley’s Odditoriums in New York City, London, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, and Jeju Island, South Korea, with the two largest Autobots slated for arrival at the Hollywood Odditorium later this year.
Somebody needs to give this chick a cameo in the next Transformer film, because she is seriously talented and devoted to the concept. Wow.
