New personal project. A 6 foot Iron Giant from scratch!

Many of you probably don’t know I’m a huge “Iron Giant” fan. And if you don’t know what that is look it up and then see the movie. I insist.

I wanted to get the now 300 dallor Mondo 16 inch figure. Then I thought “why do that when I can scratch build a 6 foot model?” I asked Adam Savage about this and if he had any good reference.

He told me according to his friend Brad Bird (the director of the film)it was highly accurate. Nearly perfect. So I started collecting information last night so I could as early as next week start on this childhood dream of having a big robot as a friend.

lots of my friends have Robbie and the B9 robot from “Lost in Space” and as much as I wanted them too I want the Iron Giant more. The reasons are abundant.

A scratch build that’s not a plane, boat, or Star Ship. A freaking change. Here we go.

    AWESOME!!! A friend called Adam when he needed reference material on the back panel of the Ark of the Covenant. Apparently, the relief carvings on that side are never shown in the movie. Adam responded with digital photographs. Beyond creating an accurate Ark replica, I said, “Wait, you ‘just called’ Adam Savage? Who does that?” Adam is my personal hero and having lunch with him someday is at the top of my wish list. EXCITED to see the progression of your new project!!!!
