R.I.P. Taku Sato aka Professor Robo

After checking out the Ex-Gokin post in more detail on Toybot's blog, I found out that the designer of this and many other incredible toy robots in the Getter series had passed away suddenly last August. Taku "Professor Robo" Sato & Fewture have produced some of the best die-cast heavy-ass robots there are in existence.
A serious RIP for the brains behind one of the most inspirational mecha designers ever.

You can find a great interview with him HERE.

ExGokin Boss Borot Is Amazing

I'm going to let the pictures do the talking. Heavy, die-cast metal robots that cost a fortune but are worth every penny. Fewture's Ex-Gokin Boss Borot comes with the most insane detailing ever. Check the three pilots out in the following pics! Amazing!!!!!

These images came from the beautiful collection over at the Toybot Studios team HQ.

World's Only Scuba Diving Cat

Meet the world's only scuba diving cat.

Vacuum cleaning our cat

This is a video showing us vacuum cleaning our cat. She is huge and totally deaf from birth. She's almost 14 years... The vacuum itself is on the lowest mode, just enough to get the loose hairs off, so no animal was harmed during the making of this vid ;)

Homemade Helicopter That Works

If you think that flying as a hobby is still a little expensive, these small relatively inexpensive helicopter proves that there is more than one way to fly. Some of the prototypes are presented here.

The Baby-Jumping Festival

We’re not joking, the Baby-jumping Colacho Festival is a real annual event celebrated all over Spain since the 1620s. It consists of grown men dressed as the Devil leaping over helpless babies. Why do they do this? They represent the devils that, when they jump, they take all the evil with them leaving the babies clean of evil. Here is a snapshot of one of the weirdest religious traditions.

Waiting for the Bus Might Be Fun

A selection of funny and creative bus stops from all over the world! I’ve never seen anything like this in reality but I would not mind to wait for my bus in such an extraordinary entourage!

Celebrity Tongues

It’s interesting: no boobs, no butts, no other sexy parts of the body are revealed… But some of these photos do really excite me! Am I the only one here with such a problem?
