    Once in a while the Chinese government bans foreign films so that Chinese films get more viewers. This usually fails. The government banned media coverage for the first Transformers film, and banned Transformers 3 from entering the market. Nonetheless, Transformers is huge in China. Transformers (2007) is the country’s highest-grossing movie behind Titanic. Transformers fans in Chengdu have constructed massive Transformers out of car parts. The statues are almost 3 stories tall.

    This reminds me of another statue that symbolized something the government didn’t fancy. Maybe the ‘bot fans are hoping these one’s fight back.

    Transformers: Age of Extinction has been released and is taking place partially in Hong Kong and China, where some of the filming was done, including at the Great Wall.

    “This is the first film in the series to feature the Dinobots Returning Transformers include Optimus Prime, Bumblebee, Ratchet, Leadfoot, and Brains.” (Wikipedia)

    According to Imagine Games Network: “Age of Extinction was made for fans of the franchise… Lovers of all things explosions, visual effects marvels, and Autobots will be granted a wealth of all of the above.”

    Can you identify which Transformers are in the photos?
