Especially since you can pick one up for $100 now.
I think it's ripe for the picking.

just curious if anyone has stumbled across one yet....

Found one....
plus a custom SUG and Ulligus to match.

they're interesting if only because it's the first I've seen, quality seems low, although I do like how he incorporated the extra arm.
The SUG is definitely a motorbot ripoff.

check em...

That's not a Motorbot ripoff. It's a specific style for the most part called Steampunk (Google it). I think these guys look great!......Good find!

I'm quite familiar with steampunk. I'm not sure how these qualify...
there is nothing retro, pre-tech about these other than the rust color.

you don't see the similarity between the metal studs on this motorbot custom and the previous?

I've done pieces like that too and 1 even before motorbot did that Sug. It is a style that does get thrown into "SteamPunk" which Doktor A has been doing for years. The style has even been out there longer then the term "Steampunk" my art teacher back in HS 93-96 use to call me a "rivet head" cause I had metal objects including screws, nails, rivets, eyelets, safty pins, and sewing needles protruding from my art. The term "rivet head" later became a label for people who listened to a certain type of industrial music. I hate labels, art is art and is inspired by many people and things we see as we grow up.

you're correct, tons of people have used rivets on a million other projects. I just called out this guy for ripping off motor because he very closely mirrored the style on the exact same figure.

I still don't see how rivets automatically equal steampunk, but I don't follow it that closely either

art is art,
didn't mean to start an argument
