    I didn't make this. It was a Xmas gift from my best friend. She got it in New York at this little place called Metal Park. It's made from recycled motorcycle parts. It's one of a kind.

    Looks like a Movie-style Junkion.

    It always amazes me how people can build stuff like this with a pile of spare metal. Genius.

    That's awesome, I want one of Prime! A question, did your friend request the design or was it already made?

    It was already made. She wont tell me the price. There is another taller version on the site http://www.metalpark.org.

    She said they also had a Movie Prime but it was too big.

    I've seen things like this before, some of them are downright jaw dropping (like the ones of the Xenomorphs I've seen, DAAAAMN).

    Tis' pretty cool.

    Quite interesting! I've seen similar figures of Predator and terminator at an asian store nearby but only had one of each. They are a bit expensive but the work on these are impressing.
    Anyways, you got something very nice man!
