Wild Rose, Wisconsin: 23-Foot-Tall Transformer Robot

In June 2014, metal artist George Edgren took a junker Oldsmobile and turned it into a full-size Transformer standing in his driveway, one hand resting on his roof. George displays more of his metal art creations in his yard, although the big robot is the obvious star.

23-Foot-Tall Transformer Robot

We visited there Monday, and the Transformer is quite impressive! The artist's mother was there and was very nice to answer our questions. A nice lakeside drive, and easy to find via the app map.
