Giant City-Bot Man X-3!

Giant City-Bot Man is what would happen if a city block got up and went for a walk. His transmission tower legs, five-story building torso, water tower head, and arms of smokestack and movie palace sign are all made of cardboard and paper. He stands over fourteen feet tall.

 

I started building him for a couple of Make Magazine-sponsored Open Make events at Berkeley’s Lawrence Hall of Science. The pictures here show him in his third and mightiest incarnation¬†at the Children’s Creativity Museum (formerly “Zeum” ) in San Francisco. I wanted him to look like some friendly but imposing giant in an old Little Nemo in Slumberland comic.

 

I want him to be real, and I want to stand looking out the fifth story windows as he strides up Market Street.

    I’m blown away, by this creature and by your amazing ability to create the detail that makes it plausible.
