Acquired immunity – the only way to be sure

Once again, Grantmasters has created something outside the box — and to think it all started with a bulk lot of LEGO Belville purchased online. Wanting to make something reminiscent of an old toy catalogue with all characters posing for the photograph, he has included an array of various doctoring devices. I love how the X-ray seems the perfect scale, and the discarded plaster cast boot on the floor by the bin.

A Distraction

Grant started with the computer screen – constructed by miniaturising Chris McVeigh‘s designs – he says the biggest challenge was getting the black part of the screen to hold the correct angled curve. He solved it by pivoting it and attaching it to an angled pin protruding through a hole in the middle of the screen.

Cyborg Chris and his best friend Botdog

I can’t think of anything that would be much cooler than having a loyal robo-dog. Now Botdog by Gamabomb is most definitley high on the cool index. This thing borders more on high-quality concept art than a custom LEGO creation. The mixing of both old and new dark greys, coupled with some very nice colour blocking and believable mechanical detailing create a realistic bot that appears like it could actually move.

When you add a cyborg handler the build just gets better. By putting a KELOID-esque cyborg head on a Scala doll body the resulting character perfectly matches the style of Botdog and really contributes to the uniqueness of the build.

Master and Slave

This is Botdog. Loyal as all heck. 13/10 would definitely boop that big red snoot.
