While I was digging around looking at that awesome metal AT-AT sculpture by artist Sage Werbock (aka “The Great Nippulini” – don’t ask), I stumbled onto an even bigger, badder metal creation over on his Etsy shop…
This handmade sculpture of Bender Bending Rodriguez not only is awesome, he’s life-size. Yep this metal bender sculpture stands 5-feet, 8-inches tall (from the tip of his antenna) and weighs in somewhere between 40 and 50 pounds. He’s made from various recycled materials including a water heater tank, propane bottles, hubcaps, and a fire extinguisher, among other things.
Bender even has a functional chest door, so you can hide whatever stolen goodies you’d like inside his capacious metal chest cavity.
Unfortunately he doesn’t come with a cigar or a bottle of beer, but here’s what he could look like if you added those:
According to the artist, this Bender “won’t swipe your wallet or drink all your beer.” I don’t know about the beer part, but at $3,000 (plus $100 for US shipping), I’m pretty sure your wallet will feel a little lighter if you decide to bring him home from the 30th century.
