Forget video games, here’s how to really propose: with a 3-storey Transformer

Proposing by self-made video games is so 2013. In 2014, it’s all about proposing in the biggest way possible. In the case of a love-struck man in China, it was with a giant Optimus Prime! This Transformer machine took over 400 drawings, 40,000 rivets and nearly $10,000 worth of stainless steel and iron to create.

And the whole project took 10 months to create. This Optimus Prime is just as giant as the real deal, measuring 3-storeys tall. I guess the days of proposing in a quiet restaurant or at home are gone.
