"Bing" the Robot!

Say hello to "Bing" the Robot! He is 6' 9" tall, single, and enjoys video games and destroying stuff with his ray gun. It took 16 days of working until 1-2 am to get him done in time for his TV debut on "King of the Nerds." This was a difficult sculpture to build because I had to connect steel to aluminum and such. Lots of tap and die work. It weighs a TON!
