Good news everyone!
Adrian Drake (BrickFrenzy) is back with another MEGA awesome build for Brickworld this year. This time, it’s a life-sized Bender from Futurama:
At 6 feet tall (including antenna) and built with approximately 20,000 pieces – it may surprise you that this build only took about Adrian a month to build. I think this was the single most photographed build at Brickworld, and earned Adrian the Judge’s Choice Award and nomination for Best Mega Creation.
Of course no life sized bender would be complete without a functional chest cavity (featuring one of Brickworld’s finest traditional drinks).
As a huge Futurama fan, I couldn’t help but get caught up in life-sized-Bender Fever, and decided to build Nixon’s head (minus jar) to put on Bender’s body (ARROOOOO!).
Oh and Adrian totally trusted me enough to let me put on Bender’s Head.
A special thanks to Adam Myers for letting me build Nixon from his collection in Chicago, and for loaning out Nixon head to Adrian to display at BrickFair VA.
Riccardo Zangelmi would like to present the disembodied head of Bender Bending Rodríguez.
Feel free to leave your favorite Bender quotes in the comments.
