This is so damn random, it’s giving me a headache… but a good kind. Cardboard crafter extraordinaire, TK615 put together a very odd nativity scene for Christmas. Instead of getting some crummy plastic statues from WalMart, TK615 (I really wish I knew your real name buddy…) took a pile of cardboard, some hot glue and put together this pretty rad Robot themed nativity scene.
I made this using nothing but cardboard, hot glue, and OCD. 2 days no sleep…. (cut, glue, burn,… repeat)…. there is no templates, it’s all free hand…. lot of circles, trial and error…. measure twice cut once…..
I used to work with a lot of cardboard during my set build/painting days and that shit is no joke. For him (or her) to complete this whole 3D robot scene in just two days is mind-boggling. The scene includes Clank (Ratchet and Clank), Crow T. Robot (Mystery Science Theater 3000), and Bender (Futurama… but I didn’t have to tell you that right?) as the three magi, Johnny Number Five from ‘Short Circuit’ as Joseph, Rosie from the ‘Jetsons’ as the Virgin Mary, and representing the shepherd and his flock, WALL-E and an Imperial AT-AT from ‘Star Wars’. The robot representing “Baby Jesus”… I have no fuckin’ clue. Too bad it wasn’t R2-D2. I love how Johnny Five is staring down at the baby while Rosie is too busy being worried whether J5 will notice that he wasn’t the one that install the baby in her. Ratchet must know whats up cause he pointing and laughing at the fool.
