Many of you probably don’t know I’m a huge “Iron Giant” fan. And if you don’t know what that is look it up and then see the movie. I insist.
I wanted to get the now 300 dallor Mondo 16 inch figure. Then I thought “why do that when I can scratch build a 6 foot model?” I asked Adam Savage about this and if he had any good reference.
He told me according to his friend Brad Bird (the director of the film)it was highly accurate. Nearly perfect. So I started collecting information last night so I could as early as next week start on this childhood dream of having a big robot as a friend.
lots of my friends have Robbie and the B9 robot from “Lost in Space” and as much as I wanted them too I want the Iron Giant more. The reasons are abundant.
A scratch build that’s not a plane, boat, or Star Ship. A freaking change. Here we go.
