How To Build An ED-209

Having watched many TV programs about people building their own homes, we don't notice any bespoke decorative statues being taken into consideration either inside or outside the home.

Well, if we were going to build a home, we've found the perfect bespoke decorative statue.

Thorsson & Associates Workshop of Petaluma, California have built not one, but two ED-209 replicas from the movie RoboCop. Check out below.



Check out the full story at Thorsson & Associates' blog with loads of videos about how these ED-209s were built.

The Power Of Comic Con Cardiff

We had an amazing time at Comic Con Cardiff in the Motorpoint Arena on the weekend - great to see so many characters we knew of, and a fair few we didn't - but remarkable all the same. We even hired a robot to take over when we went to lunch.

Here are a few photos of our time there...



 








We'll be back in March 2015 with more designs - until then...

Electric Cars Are Fast

The performance of electric cars has been in question over recent years. With the electric car being put into a serious motorsport in Formula e and the release of the impressive Tesla Model S, the electric car is now standing it's ground.

What's more, we've found this...




This is the Renault Twizy F1. Built in 2013, this heavily modified version of Renault's entry level electric car has been given a power boost from 17bhp to 97bhp. This is thanks to an F1 grade KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System, remember?) system being bolted to the car's electric motor generator unit (MGU). The result - 0-62mph in about 7.5 seconds.

Here's Sebastian Vettel giving it a go.

Skatepark Gets Listed

You've heard of a listed building, but a listed skatepark? That's exactly what's happened to the Rom Skatepark in Hornchurch, East London. It's been given Grade 2 listed status.


Built in 1978, which is not all that long ago, the Rom is a retro landscape of personality and challenge-rich obstacles, ramps and bowls that give any skateboarder, rollerblader, scooter and BMX riders a taste of where their recreation started.

Check out the Rom Skatepark website.

Your Kid's First Audi

It doesn't take a full-on car enthusiast to want an Audi. In fact, you don't even have to be out of nappies...

Audi have created a model range available to people who don't yet hold a drivers license. Cue the Audi Mini Quattro.


The Audi Mini Quattro is equipped with a steering wheel and horn with optional trailer available. Power output and top speed is completely dependent on the excitement of the driver.


Audi Mini Quattro drivers can then advance to the Audi Kid's Car Legends with pedal power and speed brake. This is a very cool pedal car.



If two wheels are more preferable than four, then there's the Audi Mini Runner - a speed scooter with a flippable frame for two riding positions.

If you know of any 1-8 year olds interested in owning an Audi, check out the official store.

We've found one of the most awesome ways to create photo art - with Lego!

Photobrix is a fantastic site which contains a program that allows you to create images composed of coloured Lego bricks.


You simply follow the step-by-step instructions by inputting an image or photo and Photobrix will compose a pixel-esque image. It will then give you an inventory of all the Lego bricks required and building instructions - amazing! Check out Photobrix.

Need we mention Christmas is coming?...

Audi Does Knight Rider

We all know that KITT from Knight Rider could travel at break-neck speeds completely automated, but was he ever any good at taking the best racing line around those never ending desert roads?

Not from what we remember.

It's been about 30 years since KITT, but Audi's Bobby has now emerged with a breathtaking display of automated track racing that has set the benchmark for the driver-less car.


Bobby is a 560hp Audi RS7 concept car. He's recently set the driver-less car speed record at 149mph around the Hockenheim circuit.

Check out the video with commentary.

RoboCop and Murphy by Hot Toys

Hot Toys is a collectible model making company based in Hong Kong that produce possibly the best movie figurines we have seen.

We're huge movie fans here and can't resist visiting their website in search for new releases. A short while ago they released a battle-damaged RoboCop that looked absolutely incredible, but now they have released a gem from the film that no-one saw coming - RoboCop, before he was RoboCop...


This is Hot Toys' Alex Murphy, the cop who was shot to pieces in the film and whose remains were used to create the title character. He's played by Peter Weller, and the likeness in this model is remarkable.


The Murphy model is shipped as a package with Hot Toys' battle-damaged RoboCop. The likeness here is so good it even shows RoboCop's slightly disproportionate head as a result of the large prosthetic head makeup.


Hot Toys also gives you all the bits to play with - RoboCop's baby food and diagnostic spike and Murphy's Sig Sauer and Heckler and Koch pistols.

Also, check this out - we at Spicetag have both Murphy and RoboCop's autographs - both appear surprisingly similar.


See these amazing figures at the Hot Toys website.
