Nope, that’s definitely not true. This sculpture comes via DeviantART user Kalapusa. His Pac-Man isn’t really adorable or cute. It’s kind of freaky-looking to be honest, kind of like a floating rat of some sort with an insatiable hunger.
…and by that, I mean he gets his likeness carved into a bust. In this case, I’m talking about a fun retro-pixel art bust you can put on your desk alongside your shiny new iToys.
Designed by Dutch artist Metin Seven (who also created the awesome Technabob voxel mascot), this Steve Jobs bust not only looks cool, it’s made with a high-tech 3D printing process, thus completing the circle of geek life.
If you love Miyazaki’s animes, then you’ll love the fact that the gigantic robot from Laputa: Castle in the Sky can be seen in Tokyo, at the Ghibli Museum (FR).
Apparently, this robot is life-sized, meaning that it’s quite huge.
If you have trouble remembering Minas Tirith, let me refresh your memory. It’s a key location in the Lord of the Rings and someone has clearly turned it into an obsession.
This matchstick Minas Tirith was made by Patrick Acton, using about 420,000 individual matchsticks.
Ever wonder what to do with those stupid grids of plastic left over when you assemble a model? How about build a Gundam?
That’s exactly what these guys did with their leftover bits and pieces. It took over 250 man-hours to build the RG (Recycle Grade) RX-78-2 Gundam, which measures in at nearly 10-feet tall.
Like many football fans, I was caught up in the World Cup fever and didn’t realize how cool this installation was when it first made the rounds a few months back.
This 65-foot sculpture was on display in a shopping mall in Johannesburg, South Africa and was made by Ratcliffe Fowler Design for Nike.
We’ve featured Nintendo systems with wooden components before, but this NES is entirely made out of wood, with the exception of the strings used for the cables:
It seems that the console – along with a wooden TV – was made for an exhibit.
I guess the guys in China felt they had to try and keep up with Japan and their gigantic robot creations, and built themselves an enormous Optimus Prime of their own.
Standing 32-feet tall, and residing just North of the Bird’s Nest at Beijing’s Olympic Park, the giant Transformer might not be as tall as giant Gundam, but you have to hand it to the Chinese for their ingenuity.
Created entirely from old bits of metal and scrap parts, this diminutive (but life-size) Yoda sculpture looks awesome.
Handmade by Bangkok artist Yumi Modal, the only thing better would be if the little metal guy’s lightsaber actually lit up – but whaddya want for scrap metal?
I’ve never really had the patience to create an elaborate sand sculpture. At best, I’ve created simple little castles. However, these sculptures are anything but simple. Check out these amazing ephemeral Star Wars sculptures created in sand.
These amazing sculptures were created by the Australian artist Peter Hennessey. And no, they can’t fly. They’d probably burn up on lift-off if you even tried to launch one into space.
My Hubble will premiere at the Biennale of Sydney 2010.
Poor dead bird.
Wait what the —
It’s a dead robo-bird! Artist/illustrator/futurechologist Justin Chase Black, more respectfully addressed as Mr. ThrowingChicken, recently finished the awesome looking Creatures of the Mechazoic Era, a series of sculptures that look like fossilized remains from a time yet to come.
This incredible Transformer truck sculpture was recently erected by students at the China Central Academy of Fine Arts.
The statue measures in at nearly 32 feet-tall, and weighs in at a staggering 4 tons! Incredibly, it’s almost entirely made from parts from an old truck.
Ok, we have a new champion in the race to build the coolest AT-AT model ever.
Weighing in at a whopping 40lbs and measuring about 28″ tall, Supertrone’s handmade AT-AT sculpture is built from steel parts, all neatly welded together.
One of the best things in Futurama is Bender. Sure, the professor is cool, but Bender just has that certain appeal, especially with his robotic drinking and smoking ways.
Metalworker Des Bromilow has now built a life-sized replica of Bender.
