    have you tried any online translators? i'm looking at both translations from babelfish and i can't really get much from it.

    on a side note, i am so making a 3d version of that symbol.

    Urgh! I tried reading the article, but my Chinese is honestly, rather terrible and the article is written with traditional Chinese letters rather than the modern simplified characters I am familiar with, which only makes it even harder. I totally fail my ancestors.

    However, I can somewhat translate the caption for the pic KA pointed out. The caption (「變形金剛」的媚力驚人,連西藏小活佛都忍不住將它(「博派Mark」&「狂派Mark」)製成「陰陽八卦圖」…) reads something like this: "Diehard Transformers fans, these young tibetan buddhist monks cannot resist turning them (The [Autobot Symbol] and [Decepticon symbol]) into a form of the [Yin/Yang Bagua Symbol]

    Using a combination of Babelfish and my own Chinese, the rest of the article is merely a run down of the history of the Transformers line and about the (at the time the article was written) upcoming new movie, as well as trying to come up with a made-up story outline for 5 more movie sequels.

    Hahahaha - the pic looked kinda dodgy to me at first, but after looking at the article (via Babelfish)... it's legit.

    That's cool. :)

    Wooo, very appropriate Yin/Yang.

    And dammit, I can't read traditional mandarin, I fail my ancestors too... Thanks for the rundown, Op_Prime.
