You may have seen this item on Boing Boing Gadgets, or elsewhere, but if you’re an admirer or practitioner of papercraft, you’ve got to check the link out (as I just did). This Chinese papercrafter created an incredibly detailed, articulated Bumblebee Transformer model using mainly fast-food containers (this badass cardboard dude is basically a bunch of KFC bucket lids and Orion custard boxes). I love how he uses the colored ink in the packaging as the coloring on the model, a great Bumblebee color match.
