I had a two foot-tall Shogun Warrior toy when I was a kid, and after watching Pacific Rim thought it would be fun to make something like that now, in lieu of building yet another model ship. I got materials (the whole thing cost less than twenty bucks, including the long-used superglue from which the caps to make the missiles were scrounged) long ago, but didn’t have a chance until this week… every project on which I’m currently working is at the moment reliant on someone else to do something before I can proceed, so each evening I’d fiddle with this and watch TV with Liz. Anyway, he’s 29 inches tall, and all done!
Pippin Lugnut - 3’ Custom Kidrobot Chuckboy Dunny by Haus Of Boz

As an intrepid adventurer, and author of many explorer’s journals, Pippin Lugnut knew no fear.
All the better for him, as he was accidentally chewed in half by a giant mechanical whale during a stunt show, on a boating holiday in the Iron Isles. Typical, these things always happen when you’re on vacation.
The extremely contrite whale was dreadfully embarassed by the whole affair, and personally paid for Pippin to be rebuilt by an engineering expert, holidaying at the same beach resort. It was a messy business, but they don’t call the Iron Isles the Land of Invention for nothing.
A few pistons later, and Pippin was back on his newly functioning cyborg feet. He has always been a “glass-half-full” kinda guy, and accepted his new body and accompanying skills with excitement.
These days you’ll still find him adventuring, but he’s also pretty handy at finding things with his x-ray vision, and if you’re stuck getting the lid off a jar of delicious pickled beets.
Pippin Lugnut is a 3” Kidrobot Chuckboy Dunny Custom, by Haus Of Boz.
He’s sculpted and painted by hand, signed, and finished up with a UV resistant coat of matt varnish, with some shiny glosses.
Please take care of him, display him, love him, and keep him out of trouble and away from whales. He is art, for grown ups.
Not suitable for children, or rough adventures. He’s still recovering.
