People dress up as famous characters and ask for money all the time. But how many of them dress as Bumblebee and ask for money for a trip back to Cybertron?

Recently in Chengdu, China, the cosplayer was spotted with a sign asking for ten yuan so he could find Optimus Prime and get back to Cybertron.

As seen on Sohu, here is the sign, which reads, "Help! Give me 1o yuan to find my brother Optimus and return to Cybertron."


And here are the authorities taking him away.

Maybe to... Cybertron?
