HOMO FERRATUS - by makadi3000

I'm a designer currently living and working in Zurich, right in the middle of Europe. This blog is about my original toy work and hobby interests. I dedicate it to Japanese artist Kow Yokoyama, creator of the Maschinen Krieger universe, which has always been a teacher and source of inspiration to me, as he is for many contemporary concept artists and illustrators of the 21st century.

Thanks for looking! - Adi D'Agostino aka makadi3000

BERTIE by Ashley Wood

Ashley Wood's BERTIE from the World Ware Robot (WWR) series is now availlable as a limited vinyl toy: 14" tall, 43 points of articulation, fabric ammo-pouches, extra weapons and accessories, and a terrific paintjob makes a top notch collectible out of it!

BERTIE can be purchased at Bambaland and comes in two varaints. Both the "Dirty Deeds" and "Desert Rat" looks absolutely amazing! Because I couldn't decide I just bought one of each... and was lucky enough to get two special signed copies with giclee mini print limited to 50 of each colorways. Cool! :)

To my surprise I found a BERTIE interpretation by DER ZWEITE PLAN , a japanese artist which is well known for his excellent Maschinen Krieger paintings.
