Transform Some Eggs in an Optimus Prime Chicken Coop

From the 'now I have seen it all' category, obvwin reader Tez sent us a tip to his newly constructed chicken coop made to look like our giant robot pal Optimus Prime (in truck mode of course). The truck was hand-crafted and is considered to still be a work in progress.

Improvement suggestions for Tez are: Add autobot logos, fill it with chickens, install an internal LCD TV that loops '80s Transformers cartoons and add a giant laser cannon to blast at potential egg snatchers.

The Yoda Engagement Ring: Do or Do Not, There is No "TRY"

Yoda is as wise as he is powerful. That being said, Lord Dan thought it would be in his best interest to propose to his Lady Sith Ellen at the Star Tours exhibit at Disney World.
