Okay, so despite their ominous/cool name, Mechanicards cannot actually destroy a Hallmark card. That said, these creations by artist Bradley N. Litwin certainly own in the looks department. So this means they destroy the competition in an aesthetic sense, get it?
Where you usually have cheap 2-D prints of smiley faces or whatnot, each Mechanicard has a specific theme and comes with movable parts. Now what kind of person on earth won’t be bowled over when they receive one for their birthday or some other occasion?
Made with paper and odd pieces of plastic or metal, Mechaniards belong to the pricier end of the spectrum but more than make up for when it comes to looks. How about we have a rundown of the different designs?
The rather straightforward Radial Engine is sold out, unfortunately. But you can still wait for the upcoming batch and plop down $50. However, if craftsmanship is your thing, pay $40 for the kit and assemble it yourself.
Due on November, the Ambigulator costs the same but comes in a more dynamic color scheme. Plus there’s a hand crank. Who doesn’t love a hand crank?
Also coming this November is the Strum-U-lator, which is almost a full-fledged musical instrument and costs $70.
Right on time for Christmas are a pair of uber-awesome Mechaniards that cost even more, but are well-worth it for eye candy alone. These are the Dragonfly Surprise and Yike-a-cycle.
Keep in mind that if assembling one yourself is more to your liking, a kit of each variant can be had for $10 less. But if you want one so bad already, then go here to separate yourself from your hard-earned cash.
