My new project, “BOY-BOT & BOY” will images of many robots as well as toy robots. It’s made me go back and look at a lot of different robot drawings and photos for reference. Here’s one that I’m quite fond of: a drawing of an unmade toy from the “Machine Robo” line in Japan, which I believe is simply called “Animal Robo.” There are lots of combining (“gattai” in Japanese) robots out there, but this one has to be at the top of the list in terms of the number of (animal) robots that come together to form this guy. Despite the sheer number of parts that make up the whole here, I still find the combined form to be quite harmonious. It’s a shame to me that it never became an actual toy.
