Human imagination can create both incredible and terrifying things. And the latest creation by Japanese builder Moko perfectly illustrates this thesis. This absolutely bizarre creature from Mars is odd in so many ways. Not only does its overall design gives me shivers, but also the choice of pieces and their combinations are simply outlandish. Can you guess what piece is used for the martian’s snout?
Hmmm, there seems to be some sort of Japanese pop culture cliche with similar Martians.
They might originally be derived from French artist Charles Dudouyt’s original illustrations to H. G. Wells’ “War of the Worlds”.
Castle dragon neck newest.
They also resemble octopods, which probably doesn’t hurt.
Sure, Katsuhiro Otomo (of “Akira” fame) did some early manga stories called “Chronicle of the Planet Tako” (with “Tako” being Japanese for “Octopus”), taking advantage of the similarity.
@Quinn – too easy, right? :)
