I’ve always had a soft spot for Bender from Futurama and Des Bromilow full size Bender complete with accessories including his cigar and beard he never wears is just fantastic.
The life size model was constructed from the following: alvaged fire extinguishers, 45Kg (100lb) propane cylinder, pipe, bolts, nuts, washers, “bog’ (automotive putty), electrical conduit, samboy chip packet, paints, cement.
Des has detailed every stage of the construction process from discussing how Bender was designed, built, painted to his accessories on his blog.
If you fancy making your own full size Bender you can follow Des’s instructions here.
