In 2011, a Kickstarter project raised more than $67,000 to build a Robocop statue for Detroit. Now the statue is finally ready to be cast in bronze and you have a chance to see what a pre-bronze Robocop statue looks like.
If the folks behind Sandboxr have their way, someday you won’t have to wait or hunt for figurines of your favorite game character. You’ll just log in to a website or even a mobile app, pick the character and order a 3D printed statue of it.
Thing is one of Marvel’s coolest superheros. Well, aside from Spidey, Wolverine, Iron Man, the Hulk and… Okay, so he’s not an A-list Marvel superhero, but he’s still pretty awesome in my book. He’s definitely the coolest member of The Fantastic Four.
After so many years of service, most companies will give you a watch. Heck, these days they may just fire you instead as thanks for your service or give you nothing. Nintendo however, does something special for it’s employees after 20 years.
It’s not enough that this 6-foot-tall LEGO Batman looks totally awesome, but the fact that it was built by a 13-year-old makes it even more impressive to me. Maybe it’s just that when I was a kid, my LEGO building abilities were pretty much limited to whatever the picture on the box showed.
Japan’s Giant Gundam sculpture was one of my favorite man-made since I started writing this here site. So when I stumbled onto these images and video footage of the recently-dismantled Gundam statue, I wept. Okay, so I had just been cutting onions, but it still made me sad.
If you’re a big Star Wars fan like me, you might want to start clearing out a corner of your living room (or entry way) for this cool new R2-D2 collectible. Measuring in at just 3 feet-tall, this R2-D2 monument is exactly a 100% scale match with the version of R2 found in The Clone Wars (although he looks a little shorter than the Kenny Baker version from the movies).
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.
Do you think you’d learn more about how to harness the powers of the Force by having this life-sized Yoda statue in your living room? The statue stands 30 inches tall and weighs about 22 pounds, so I can only assume that Yoda really only weighs 22 pounds when they say “life-sized”.
St. John’s Cathedral is a Roman Catholic church in ‘s-Hertogenbosch, Netherlands. The church is famous for its gothic architecture and its numerous statues. When it was restored for the third time, 25 new angel statues were added to the church, including this hip, mobile phone-toting heavenly servant:
KodyKoala‘s been on a roll lately. It seems like he’s churning out a custom figure every week, from anatomy statues to robot dinosaurs to zombie dinosaurs. Now he’s finally come around to making an action figure worthy of the other super Mario brother:
After mechanizing Mario’s dinosaur companion, Flickr user Kodykoala drains the life out of Yoshi.
That’s one nasty zombie. Kodykoala also answered my only complaint about Mecha Yoshi and added the dinosaur’s trademark tongue, making him a prehistoric version of the Smoker from Left4Dead.
