Farmer Yu Zhilin and his son Yu Lingyun collected scrap car parts and assemblies huge Transformers bit by bit, based on online images of Transformers.

These well-made models not only attracted a constant stream of visitors, but also brought in over a million yuan (about $200,000) of annual revenue for them, according to QQ news.

Mr. Yu first got the idea of making Transformers in 2007. Without any external support, Yu spent nearly three years before the first batch of Transformer models in were formed.

After several years of hard work, he and his son created a small workshop specially to build Transformers.
