Oh, China. When it’s not trying to pass off Top Gun footage as anything other than a horrible movie it’s building the world’s biggest statue of Optimus Prime. Nothing wrong with that.

The statue, located in Shenyang, measures 36-feet tall and weighs 11 tons. It’s made of 20 “wrecked” vehicles.

To put that into perspective, the State of Liberty, made famous in Grand Theft Auto IV, measures 151 feet from the base of the statue itself to the top of the torch. It weighs 450,000 pounds, or 225 tons. I know this because I read it here.
