Cute robot is cute.

Kristof’s (legoalbert) T-Jay 22-637 is perhaps one of the most adorable little robots I have ever had the pleasure of looking at. He says that he was inspired by the Science Guys from Adventure Time, and I must admit that I have never watched the show but this makes me want to check it out all the more.

The use of the sticker sheet scraps to add subtle detail to the body as well as to make the face is expertly done. And the design of the head with the recessed ‘screen’ and rubber band detailing is nothing to sneeze at either.

A build such as this is the perfect thing to put a smile on your face!

Atlas & P-Body by eldeeem

Despite heroic contributions from Xbox friends like Tyler, I never quite managed to get all the way through co-op mode in Portal 2. Still, it was really really fun, and I always enjoy seeing LEGO renditions of the paired test subjects Atlas and P-Body. This version by Ryan H. (eldeeem) is at a larger scale that enables him to add plenty of detail and color contrast. I’m rarely a fan of rubber bands as critical structural elements in LEGO models (yes, even in official sets), but by adding them around other bricks, Ryan has softened the corners of several blocky areas rather nicely.

A robot from the future that never was

There’s something sad about retro-futurism — the perception of people in the past about what the present or future would look like (think “The Jetsons”). Despite all our hand computers and robots on Mars, we still don’t have practical flying cars or robot butlers.

So it is with a twinge of regret for a future that never came to pass that I share this excellent vintage robot by Jeffrey Heuer (Norweasel). The legs are fully articulated, and he looks like he’s wearing a monocle.
