Got a few boxes of coffee stirrers and some cocktail toothpicks lying around? Well save ’em for stirring some lattes, since I doubt most of us could do anything quite as impressive as this if left to our own devices.
This anatomically-incorrect but still cool LEGO skeleton was built by Flickr user/LEGO Doctor/skull lover Clay Morrow. I know that Morrow used a mix of LEGO and custom parts to make the skeleton, although honestly I can’t tell which are official LEGO parts and which are not.
It has to be good to be an artist. If you have a penchant for things like LEGO or Hot Wheels cars you can just come up with some wild DIY project idea and start building and no one thinks you are weird for playing with kid’s toys, it’s art after all.
What is it about Transformers that gets people so juiced up? I don’t know, but maybe it’s all of those hours watching the animated series back when we were all kids. Check out these massive Transformers sculptures that measure between 8 and 19 feet-tall.
Can I say that I love Kickstarter? It’s such a great place for new ideas to get off the ground which would have never otherwise happened. It’s also a place for outlandish ideas to get funded by geeks like us.
The elements that the artist used to create this art installation sound like a material list for my kindergarten daughters latest art project. In fact, she has brought home all sorts of art using cotton balls from Santa to little Easter chicks.
No matter how hard you might try, this Xbox just won’t power on, and it’ll never play Halo either. That’s because it’s made entirely out of wood. Sculptor Ben Winfield actually carved himself up both an Original Xbox and its chunky controller.
I know that making AT-ATs out of snow has been one way of using up some of the massive snowfall that’s been plaguing the U.S. this season, but I have to say that this one from Norway actually looks pretty awesome too.
This amazing Transformers Megatron tank sculpture was created in China and it’s a pretty impressively large thing, weighing in at almost 5 tons. The tank was created by Jiang Chen and Yang Junlin’s Wing Wah ironworks factory.
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…
Did the great snowpocalypse get you down? Then head on outside just like Jabo27 and build yourself a fallen AT-AT snow fort. If you’ve got a front yard on the East Coast, then you probably still have enough snow around to do this as well.
How come it is that when I go to a party, the ice sculpture centerpiece looks like a swan or maybe a unicorn? Somehow I never manage get myself invited to the really cool parties, like the one where they had a giant ice carving of Optimus Prime?
We already featured Metin Seven’s Steve Jobs bust. Here’s his take on Apple’s other Steve:
Who wouldn’t be cheered up by that pixelated smile? I personally would rather have this than Jobs’ scowling mug. Woz’ smile and chubby face remind me of those smiling Buddha statues.
Is there a bust more badass than this? The original Darth Vader looks like he’s part Predator:
The 8-inch, 10 lb. bronze bust is made by Gentle Giant Studios to commemorate the original version of the Sith for all seasons, as drawn by Star Wars concept artist Ralph McQuarrie.
