Yoshi Becomes Zombie, Mario Left 4 Dead

Yoshi Becomes Zombie, Mario Left 4 Dead
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. Check out Kodykoala’s Flickr page for more…

Yoshi Robot Deserves Its Own Video Game

Yoshi Robot Deserves Its Own Video Game
After years of being someone else’s steed, Yoshi finally gets his own ride, thanks to custom action figure maker/Flickr user/Nintendo super fan Donald aka Kodykoala. I love the details on his custom Yoshi mech, from the bolt-like markings to the scratches and faded paint.…

Boba Fett is Coming to Town… in May

Boba Fett is Coming to Town… in May
Jabba’s been a good Hutt in Boba Fett’s book: What’s not to love about this highly detailed 8-inch fabric mache statue? Its release date, that’s what. You can pre-order it from Entertainment Earth for $50 (USD), but if you’re going to get this as a gift, make sure you tell…

Shanzhai Gundam

Shanzhai Gundam
If you can make it, China can copy it: While other Japanese have been busy building another classic robot statue, and South Koreans are building a gigantic robot statue of their own, this orange Gundam copycat is being built in a theme park in Sichuan, China. It might just be…

Fffuuuu- Statue: Meme Monument

Fffuuuu- Statue: Meme Monument
A bust made of pure rage: Made by CG Hub member SLiD3, it really does look like Rageguy – except he’s way better looking.…

Custom Carbonite Statuette: Cloud City Souvenir

Custom Carbonite Statuette: Cloud City Souvenir
Preserve your likeness with Paul Pape’s Custom Carbonites. Just send a picture and it will be turned into a 4.25″ high statuette. The statuette isn’t actually made of carbonite though, but a mixture of plastic and Super Sculpey. Think of it as Earth carbonite. If you’re feeling naughty, send in…

Robot From Miyazaki’s Castle in the Sky Comes to Life

Robot From Miyazaki’s Castle in the Sky Comes to 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. You can take your photo right next to it. This…

Matchstick Minas Tirith: Lord of the Sticks

Matchstick Minas Tirith: Lord of the Sticks
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. Patrick’s previous rendition of Hogwart’s…

Optimus Prime Gets Real

Optimus Prime Gets Real
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…

Gundam Statue Rises Again (Almost)

Gundam Statue Rises Again (Almost)
I was pretty sad when they announced plans to take down the 60-foot Gundam statue that was erected last year in Tokyo. Luckily, Bandai recently announced that they were going to put it up again in Shizuoka, 125 miles west of Tokyo. He’s almost ready! Here are some of the…

Life Size Bender Will Bend Your Socks Off!

Life Size Bender Will Bend Your Socks Off!
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. His version comes complete with a cigar and that beard…

Japan’S Gundam Statue to Wield Lightsaber

Japan’S Gundam Statue to Wield Lightsaber
Remember that fabulous Gundam statue from Tokyo? It was originally erected to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the animated series. Well, it’s coming back better than ever! With a lightsaber, need I say more?…

Giant LEGO Yoshi Amazingly Doesn’T Fall Over on Its Massive Nose

Giant LEGO Yoshi Amazingly Doesn’T Fall Over on Its Massive Nose
Remember Dirk VH’s giant LEGO Mario? Well it looks like LEGO Mario has a new bricky dinosaur friend, in the form of LEGO Yoshi. Dirk took about 60 hours to build this 2-foot tall LEGO Yoshi, complete with bulbous proboscis (I think I know the name of my new band).…

R2-D2 Statue Armed With All of the Tools an Astromech Needs

R2-D2 Statue Armed With All of the Tools an Astromech Needs
Ah Artoo. Fixer of robots and ships, hacker of computers, opener of doors, bleeper of bloops, carrier of Death Star schematics, witness to the Skywalker legacy. If there’s one word that I associate with that lovable astromech droid, it’s “useful”. He’s deus ex machina on three legs. He really deserves…

World’s Largest LEGO Mario Up for Auction: Its’a Huge

World’s Largest LEGO Mario Up for Auction: Its’a Huge
This unbelievable bit of geek art is purportedly the largest LEGO block statue of Mario ever created. It sure looks like it to me. And it’s definitely WAY bigger than this one. The mammoth LEGO Mario was created by Dirk VH, and is made up of over 40,000 individually placed…

Cherkassy Motherland Statue’S New LED Torch Still has a Touch of Retro

Cherkassy Motherland Statue’S New LED Torch Still has a Touch of Retro
I’m a bit surprised that this isn’t in Japan. Look at them pixel flames burn! That’s the new “torch” of the Motherland statue in Cherkassy, Ukraine. The statue is one of several Motherland statues built in several locations across the former Soviet Union to commemorate the people who fought or…
