Dieselpunk recycled metal statues by Kreatworks

Have you ever woken up and wished there was a giant Autobot statue in the corner of your bedroom? Perhaps you’ve always been after an Alien Queen light for your bathroom or a Predator for the lounge. You might want to impress the neighbours with a freaking huge Incredible Hulk statue on the front lawn. Well guess what? You’re in luck! Kreatworks, based in Bangkok, produce individual art pieces built from scrap metal auto & machine parts and recycled materials then coat them in a rust resistant lacquer.

Every statue, table, light or sculpture is unique as they use whatever materials are available at the time. They have clearly done their fanboy (or girl) homework and produce close, but no cigar, versions of Alien, Predator, Transformers, Superheroes and more original creations like Dragons, Pirates and Skeletal Warriors. Those big statues must weigh in at a hefty shipping cost but if you want something this amazing it’s not going to come cheap. Prepare to be amazed………..

My Little Alien by Spippo

Mari Kasurinen aka Spippo on Deviant Art produces highly detailed, and very limited, custom My Little Pony pieces that draw inspiration from movies, celebrities, historical figures and the pop culture world in which we live.

“I was very interested in the whole customisation phenomenon; how you can get anything done just for you.”

I have picked my favourite ponies from the collection for your viewing pleasure. Cthulhu, Jason Voorhees, Alien, Predator, Spock, Edward  Scissorhands and Godzilla are represented here in all their twisted Pony glory.

Amazing Aliens Vs Predator Swedish Villa

Who wouldn’t want to live in a house like this? The brokerage firm Pontuz Lofgren AB is now selling a real ‘monster’ villa in Kalmar, Sweden.

“I’ve always had an interest in monsters and such. It’s a pity that the home theatre was never completely finished” said former owner Mic Klitterstrand.

The photos speak for themselves. Amazing! On the market for $320k if you fancy taking a punt. By the way…. they come at night, mostly.
