Kani カニ – Utility never looked so good

Well best to wrap-up Marchikoma with a bang. Curtis Collins (curtydc), founder of the Think Tank group, creates in my opinion the most unique and memorable Think Tank of the month. Between the utilitarian style and the seemingly working mechanics, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this thing actually start walking around. And me being a huge fan of bright hits of colour, this is just right up my alley.

Kani カニ

Curtis said that while building this, he had one of my favourite pieces of robot concept art sitting close by…Fausto De Martini’s brilliant Nautillus Submersible Mech. Oddly enough I didn’t pick up on it intially, but now that it was pointed out, I can’t believe I missed the reference.

    I’m always thrown slightly for a loop when builders include both an English/Romanized and Japanese word in their titles. To me, this says “kani kani” (“crab crab”). ;-)
