Real life Transformer sculpture

We`ve heard of real life Transformers before but here is a new one. This one was created from the parts of an old Lada Samara Diva compact car.

"In the movies, Transfomers turn from car into robot in a matter of seconds, and they can easily change back. But with this real-life Transformer, created by Nikola Nikolov, it took a whole lot longer, and there's no turning back into a car"

It is still unknown which side this Transformer is on or its name ;)

"Los Angeles, CA, June 21, 2010--“Til All Are One (Transformers Theme)” from the Stan Bush album “In This Life” is featured in the new Activision game “Transformers: The War For Cybertron” being released June 22nd"

However unlike the report state`s fans will not have to wait till tommorow to listen to the theme as it is not new. If you want to listen to the "new" music feel free to listen to the video of "Till all are one" (Below)
