Gakken: Strandbeest

I made this guy:

Took about 45 minutes to assemble. The kit is in Japanese, so that was tricky, but the satisfaction is immeasurable. If you blow into the clear plastic at the top, the critter will walk towards you. He’s charming. His name is Darius because all cuties are…(Thanks to my wizard bud, Michael Luong, for helping with the ole leg struts.)

Forever an influence, Theo Jansen, Strandbeest
