there’s all this symbolism about the “angel” and “devil” on your shoulder for your conscience, and this is evident here: jack starts on one side of rhys, telling him that he should trust jack to get them out of here alive, but then moves to the other side to add “oh, but if you want, we can kill people”. which kinda means that jack is trying to be both the angel and the devil — so this could just be seen as a step towards him trying to take over rhys’ entire conscience altogether. idk. maybe i’m reading too much into this. what i’m trying to say is, nice staging, telltale games.

Borderlands CL4P-TP “Claptrap” Build

Hey Guys, Chris here! The project I want to show you today is something I wanted to build for a long time and now I’ve finally done it!

Yes, you’re right, I voluntarily built the most annoying robot in the universe xD


Like my last build, I got the inspiration by a video from Punished Props:

In the description of the video you can find instructions and blueprints which I also used for making my model (I modified it a bit tho)


As always, first some WIP-Pictures:

First I printed the blueprints on 50% size, because I currently don’t have the space for a full-scale Claptrap. Then I cut them out and draw them onto some 4mm Plywood.

These are more or less all the parts after cutting them out, you see it’s not the most difficult build I did so far ;)


I put the pieces together with some tape to see if it fits, somehow the sides were a bit too long, I’m not sure if it was my fault or an error in the blueprints.


That’s shortly before painting, as you can see, I used 2 wheels because I couldn’t find a single, wide one in the size I needed.

So that’s it from the WIP, now to the finished product!

R2-T6 also met Claptrap today, they got along pretty well. I’m afraid they’ll team up to annoy me now…

This was my first try on a Claptrap, to see how difficult it is to make. I plan to make another, full-size one in the future, with some electronics like sound and arm-movement. But that’s quite at the end of my to-do-list. But I’ve got a couple more projects coming up soon so stay tuned!

Please consider the following college-flavored gayperions:

  • College Rhys staying up until 4am trying to figure out his assignment in programming and Vaughn getting his ass to bed. 
  • Rhys having a rubber ducky to explain his code to (its a common technique to find errors) when Vaughn is not around
  •  Vaughn knowing almost as much about programming as Rhys because Rhys constantly tells him about it;
  •  Rhys would also know as much about accounting if his memory wasnt like shit when it comes to facts and figures.
  •  Rhys having thousands of unsorted notes that are partially coasters for the 10000th coffee mug.
  •  Vaughn sighing when theyre finally out of fresh mugs. 
  • Vaughn and Rhys having smash tournaments to decide who has to do the dishes
