ust as I hoped suspected…the Transformers are real, and that scene from Transformers 2 that takes place in Shanghai was actually documentary footage. Conspiracy I say, CONSPIRACY! Those doctors won’t be able to dispute my sanity with this kind of proof on my side! OK, maybe I’m getting a tad ahead of myself…
This monstrosity is actually a 1:1 replica of Megatron in Tank mode designed and built by a man who calls himself Steel Legend (well deserved). He didn’t post much information about his project, so no word on the cost, but he does say that all told the model weighs more than 5,000kg (~5.51 Tons)! Honestly, this is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen, but it’d be a million times better if you could drive it. - GadgetsRepublic

Megatron is not a tank. Megatron is a gun. I don't care what those sh$%@y movies did, he's a gun.

That things looks awesome. But the big question is: does it have a drivers seat?

And Bumblebee is a VW. I know they did the little homage to the VW in the first one, but that was part of his appeal!
