    Because building your own scrap metal Batpod is like THE THING to do in Vietnam, here comes another one. No clue if this is the same guy as before, but I doubt it because this guy actually wears a helmet. The smarter Batpod builder we'll call him. This is a fully functiona... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Batpod inspired motorcycle some engineering genius managed to piece together in Vietnam. It's pretty damn impressive considering it looks like it was built entirely out of parts that had fallen off other cars. Granted it's not something I'd risk MY life... / Continue →

    Give it to me straight -- is it a love doll or not? Did anybody see the new Pirates movie over the weekend? I honestly meant to. Well, at least before the 3rd one came out and gobbled so much Kraken peen. I guess you could say I jumped ship on the franchise after that turd.... / Continue →

    The Chinese man who calls himself the 'steel legend' (best known for his scrap metal Megatron tank and being a firm believer that welding-goggles are overrated), has actually created a whole army of scrap-metal Transformers. Don't ask me what characters they are, because i onl... / Continue →

    This is an Optimus Prime statue spotted at the site of the 2008 Beijing Olympics aquatic center. He stands life-size and was built entirely out of 10,108 scrap car parts. How tall is life-size? Try 32-feet. Sure you could argue that's not Optimus' actual height, but then I'... / Continue →

    Gabriel Dishaw is an artist who works primarily in the medium of junk. Like rusty metal sprockets and nuts and bolts. And among other sculptures, he creates shoes with these things. This piece was a continuation of my previous piece JUNK DUNK (Right) I wanted to attempt th... / Continue →

    Lin Shuseng, too cheap to buy his wife one of those $4 battery operated personal massagers (or one of the more expensive ones that looks like a wand that women use to, you know, stir the soup), decided instead to spend 8 years building her a scrap metal massage chair to soothe ... / Continue →

    Remember Optimus "Scrap Metal" Prime from a couple weeks ago? Well here's some more. Scrap metal art that is, not Optimus Primes. Geekologie loyalist Julian spotted some of Metal Park's work at a street fair in NYC over the weekend and took some pictures. The artists make a... / Continue →
