Hey Honey, Wouldn't This Look Great In The Dining Room?: Half-Ton Scrap Metal Transformer Wine Rack


Seen here hanging out with the shoes of his fallen enemies, a half-ton scrap metal Transformer shows off his wine-storing capabilities. Not bad, Optimus Wino, but let's see how well you store my foot up your ass! HI-YA! Okay, that might need a tetanus shot. Per Craigslist ad obviously written by a used car salesman (or Stan from Monkey Island):

For the discerning individual who appreciates artwork and wine - you now have a great opportunity to meld those together into one piece of artwork that will display your bottle collection like no other wine rack. This will make you the talk of your wine club, HOA, alcoholics anonymous support group, etc...

There are only several times in one's life when one has the opportunity to purchase something that is RIDICULOUSLY COOL. This is one of those moments.

The creator is asking $7,000 for the piece, which is on the higher end of my wine rack budget, but I think if I sell off some of the more expensive vintages in my collection, I could probably make it happen. "Dammit GW, there's no way you have a wine collection." Oh really? Then what do you call *opening closet door with a flourish* THIS?! "A closet full of empty Mad Dog 20/20s." Most people say they're gross but I like them!

Hit the jump for a bunch more shots.





Thanks to jackalope ranch, who allegedly raise jackalopes although I suspect it's just the front for a money laundering scheme considering JACKALOPES DON'T EXIST.

There are Comments.
  • The pricing varies depending on the size of the basket you choose. Whether you want to gift someone with a small, simple basket with a few treats, or a deluxe basket with dozens of items, you find whatever you're looking for at the Harry & David store.

  • ยท If budget is a concern, you'll need to be on the lookout for sales. It's better to wait for quality gourmet gift baskets to go on sale rather than just buying cheap ones. You'll get what you pay for, so you don't want to risk buying a cheap basket filled with stale food. Also, be sure to get a basket that is put together beautifully. Whether it's an actual basket, platter, box, or series of boxes, everything should look nice, neat, and organized.

  • One company to look into for cheese and wine gift baskets is Cheese and Wine Unlimited. The company is smaller, but offers numerous product choices. It also provides high quality products shipped the way they are shown. You will find baskets containing fine wines, beer, champagne, chocolates, coffee and much more.

  • One of the drawbacks of other companies is that you do not have a lot of flexibility in selecting the contents of the cheese and wine baskets. However, with Design It Yourself Gifts and Baskets, you do have the ability to do just that. You can also select from predesigned, standard gift baskets if you would like to, as well.

  • Cheese and wine baskets are an excellent investment for many individuals. They are an appropriate gift for loved ones, but work well for corporate gifts, client gifts or even gifts to neighbors and acquaintances. They fill that gap of "what do you give someone that has everything?" More so, they are impressive.

  • This creates a tranquil atmosphere, where scents mix and intermix together without fighting each other, but rather blending together. It makes the experience more peaceful. These products also work at releasing tensions and soreness in the body while they moisturize and soften one's skin. Some baskets contain a matching candle, tranquil music, massagers, sponges, loofahs and other such items to help complete the spa like experience.

  • This idea is perfect for those of you out there who are chronically indecisive. A personalized Valentine gift basket gives you the opportunity to show that you have been paying attention even if you a little forgetful sometimes. For those of you who can't decide between flowers and candy. That's OK; put them together in a Valentine gift basket.

  • Find a large basket or, use a tackle box and fill with assorted lures, leaders, long nose fishing pliers, gloves, guide to local fishing, DVD's on fishing tournaments, and gift certificate for a rod or reel

  • Fill a basket with, chocolate cookies (home baked is best,) chocolate bonbons, chocolate sauces, chocolate syrup, chocolate dipped coffee spoons and for a special touch wrap them in cellophane with a bow, hot chocolate mix, chocolate covered coffee beans, chocolate flavored coffee beans and some chocolate recipes from around the world

  • THE BASKET - A wide variety of inexpensive baskets can be found at most craft stores. Discount outlets may also have suitable baskets for gifting. The basket color should be deep enough to hold the gift basket items. Avoid loud and bold colors.

  • A wine basket is the ideal option for friends and family that are into wine or really confused about wine. Providing a lot of wine, in sample sizes, to your friends is a great way to give them a boost and help them learn about wine at the same time

  • Wine baskets can be at their most affordable as a simple wooden display box with a single bottle of wine presented on wood shavings with a cellophane wrap and bow. This is certainly cost effective and meets client demands in terms of price point and being a wine gift idea, but it does not say much for creativity or meeting individual client preferences. However, in the case of a particularly superior bottle of wine, it is this subtle understated simplicity that can convey a certain classic style.

  • Add other suitable gifts according to the theme of the basket. These could be French or Italian cheeses, meats and other gourmet foods, cooking essences, herbs and sauces, or wine accessories and a wine book.
    It's nice to add chocolates, fruit or flowers for that extra special touch.
    Arrange the items to look as attractive as possible, with the wine bottles in a central position. Wrap the basket in high quality cellophane and tie the top. Finish it off with a big Christmassy bow or other Christmassy decoration.

    Another suggested item for a sympathy gift basket would be an inspirational or memorial gift,

    which the bereaved will find comforting long after all the food items are eaten or forgotten.

    Such gifts could include:

  • GrumpyMonkeyPants

    Um, it's obviously not a Transformer since IT DOESN'T TRANSFORM INTO ANYTHING!

  • That is terrifying.

  • Ed

    He'll find a buyer . . . then find out it doesn't fit through the door.

  • i think this is definitely a case of "a guy who likes to make stuff out of nothing and his wife being tired of junk lying all over the house" trying to compromise.

  • Crucial

    Im finding it really hard to find something to say about this..
