It's been a long time since I've posted. Per my old Pottymouth Droid build (aka Clap Trap), it's evident that I love video games and robots. I'm planning a Star Wars SS build, but before that, I thought I'd start it off with a new build to dust off the cobwebs.

This is a robot straight out of Super Mario Odyssey. I'm not a huge fan of a water bucket shaped figure, but I did appreciate the weathered look of the various game models.

I started off by building the model in Rhino. I had to lay out all the individual parts and determine what scale I would build it in depending on the real world material I would need. I settled on about 1/8 scale. There are a few areas I had to rethink, but, it's as close to the game model as possible.

P.S. The Pottymouth Droid thread will be revived soon.

Here's the base. Some parts of this build are laser cut, and, many will be made by hand.

I skipped around and started the arm components. The arms were made from laminating laser cut parts, filling, and then sanding.

I just finished the spout. I had planned on an intricate ribbed under-structure, filled with foam, and shaped. However, my library has a Makerbot 3D printer and only charges $3 a print. Therefore, I decided to experiment. It paid off and saved me tons of work.

I filled in the gaps with putty which makes it look like a miniature toilet plunger, :D . I then piled on quite a bit of filler primer, sanded, and finally topped with Tamiya gray primer. I think it looks good.
