It’s the Rebirth of Monkey King Transformer

After being unveiled recently in Qingdao, China, an insanely imposing transformer statue of the Monkey King is now standing 10-meters tall and is sending the internet into absolute Robocop fever.

If you’ve never heard of him, Monkey King a.k.a Sun Wukong is a mythological character that has been adored in China for many centuries. He’s a demon-killing, shape-shifting, heaven-leaping and magic-wielding giant that causes havoc even in heaven and survives fire in hell. He’s so powerful that only Buddha can restrain him.

So the creators of this gigantic Monkey King statue ensured that it was given an impressive design to depict the mythical character that he is. Using discarded car parts, the Monkey King statue is believed to weigh thousands of pounds and is instantly recognizable by his magical long staff.

Having been involved in several dangerous expeditions in his mythical status, this Monkey King statue is made to look as if he’s headed west on some sort of expedition that we don’t know yet. Until then, we hope that this cool creature protects the good people of Qingdao from any form of danger.
