If you haven’t heard, the metal-crafting geniuses behind the Etsy shop Kreatworks are doing some pretty cool stuff with reclaimed car parts. In their studio in Bangkok, Thailand, the comic-obsessed artists have crafted life-size versions of Transformers’ BumbleBee and Optimus Prime, an eerily-realistic Robocop and a fear-inducing Predator.
The eclectic artists’ newest creation is a Steampunk-inspired sculpture of comic writer and artist Mike Mignola’s iconic Hellboy character. Made from scraps collected from cars, motorcycles and other machinery, this detailed Hellboy sculpture looks real enough to battle against any superhuman villain.
Other than the color (silver compared to the original red) and a slightly-trimmed build, the artists’ version of the demonic superhero is identical to that seen in Mignola’s comic books. The Steampunk vibe is captured by the wired neck portion and the spiraling texture of the chest and ribs.
The massive sculpture stands at about 7 1/2 feet tall and weighs in at an awe-inspiring 770 pounds. Each component of the Hellboy replica, from the character’s classic over-sized revolver to his ubiquitous floor-length trench coat, is recreated in astonishing detail.
If you’re sold on the shocking sculpture, you’re in luck. You can actually purchase it online at the Kreatworks Etsy shop (if you’re not dissuaded by the $7,400 price tag). Sure, the comic legend is a bit of a splurge, but the piece takes loads of metal and man-hours to craft – making the price seem a little more reasonable. Want a closer look?
