IT’S THE WAY any old car would surely want to go – being torn apart and welded into a giant, cartoon-inspired robot.

Engineers at a deserted factory in Jiaxing in China’s Zhejiang Province have set up the ‘Mr Iron Robot Theme Park’, featuring 600 robot ‘sculptures’ assembled from parts of cars, trucks and machine tools.

We presume they’re legally prohibited from calling them Transformers, but let’s just say they’re, uh, heavily influenced at an aesthetic level by the multi-million dollar movie franchise.

Sightings of Megan Fox could not be confirmed at press time.
