robocop archive


#7

We tend to favor existing creations. That way we can have a marker on how good your work is…


#8

Wow that is soo cool!

Almost forgot:
the Robots from MST3K!
Rock em Sockem Robots!
Droids from Star Wars…
Tin Man for the Wizard of OZ
Wall-E


#9

What about characters from comics, i.e. Sentinels, Forge, Cable…


#10

nice! I will join for sure!! i’m not to sure what will I do but here some idea!


#11

Well we are aiming more for Robots and artificial entities…

This means that, The Sentinels, The Manhunters and Ultron are in.


#12

I gave a rather strange question… Models that aren’t textured, are they accepted in the challenge? Because I now continuely model different things, but I have no great experience in texturing. And I’m worried that bad textures will ‘kill’ my model.


#13

Yeah, but you have The Six Million Dollar Man on your list. He is a just a man augmented with bionics, which opens up a whole other can of worms in terms of cyborgs. So if he is on there, then Cable and Iron Man can be seen in the same light.

As for Collossus, I would say no. There are no machine parts or cybernetic systems. He is a mutant that transforms with a “organic steel” (as they put it on wikipedia).


#14

You got a point…
The Six million Dollar man is out.

#15

I’m a huge fan of Appleseed and Briareos Hecatonchires - Appleseed is the one I’d like to do. I think that all of these characters would be fine since you also said artificial/cybernetics- because in essence Briareos is a human that was severely injured and is the first human to be able to adapt to such a large number of cybernetics being almost completely robotic, so I would think that him or any human character with robot accessories would suffice under the “cybernetics” title. Darth Vader is another cyborg correct?


#16

He is already on the list since he almost completley robotic…


#17

well I guess if Robocop counts then so do Cybermen? [GO DOCTOR WHO :scream:]


#18

Yes they do…
:slight_smile:

#19

#20

They are in!
