You Did WHAT With My Citroen?
Three Transformers fans in China have taken three months to build their own robot out of a Citroen C2 car. Sui Lulu, Zhang Yiming and Li Wei, from Nanjing city, have named the 15 foot (five metres) Transformer X2. "We are huge Transformers fans, and grew up with them on TV and in comic books," says graphic designer Sui Lulu. He says they picked the Citroen C2 because it's small: "We originally wanted to make the figure of Optimus Prime, who is transformed from a truck. But we calculated that the final figure would be around seven storeys high, and we couldn't find room for it. So we went with the Citroen C2."
