Congratulations to the Robot Art Contest Winner Andrew Chase and his Articulated Robotic Gorilla!


A SIMIAN CYBORG BEATS HIS MIGHTY METAL CHEST

July at Stan Winston School was full of amazing mechanical characters, including CatBots, ArachnoBots, Nano-Disarticutators and even a Giant Happy Carnival Mech... of DOOM.

Picking a favorite, like surviving a robot revolt, was nearly impossible. But in the end we chose to crown a mighty metal monkey (or ape, really). As King Kong was displayed to the ladies and gentlemen of New York, so we proudly present the Grand Prize Winner of the SWSCA Forums Robot Art Contest to you...

BEHOLD THE ARTICULATED ROBOTIC GORILLA BY ANDREW CHASE!

THE PLANET OF THE MECHANICAL APES ANYONE?

According to Andrew, his all-metal, fully-articulated gorilla sculpture is "roughly four feet tall standing upright and weighs around 100lbs." The only thing missing is a simian propulsion system to make this big guy swing for real.

To show the posability of this formidable figure, Andrew created a "herky jerky stop motion animation of him brachiating across a ladder." Check it out below.

Please join us in congratulating Andrew on taking the Grand Prize with his awesome metal ape, including:
