As a father, DIYer and cosplay creator for my own girls, much respect for this project!
Love the film and love this robot. This is a very impressive build.
Geek & Sundry has been adding Nerdy/Geeky vlogs to its video channel.
The latest is Nerdcrafting with Paul Mason the DIY Guy #1.
I like the humor and Paul has some pretty cool DIY. Domo Chewbacca is totally brilliant! Something that stuck me while I watched this is I’m a Nerdcrafter but didn’t really know it. I’ve always just referred to myself as a Geeky DIY’er. Anyway Paul looks like he’s got some great ideas can’t wait to see what he vlogs about next.
Bill Doran aka @chinbeard is a very talented craftsman whom I follow on twitter and met in person at ECCC (so I can verify he is real). Bill pretty much has my dream job; he builds realistic looking props for a living.
He recently began a Kickstarter campaign to get an original Space Gun prop in the hands of all those who would like one. The gun comes as a kit that you can assemble and finish yourself (among other pledge/reward offers). It’s a great looking original design by Bill that I’m sure could be modded in many ways.
As of this post the funding is almost at 50% and I think he’s got a great shot of reaching his goal with several week to go. I’ve already pledged at the kit level and am excited to take this on as my first foray into kit modding!
