Do you remember this crazy robot from Borderlands? Yes, the one who calls you “henchman” without sparing you from his scathing remarks. Simon Liu, is a LEGO passionate and has created its own version of claptrap at the Brickworld Chicago 2015, a show dedicated to the most impressive LEGO constructions!
With a height of 75 centimeters, this claptrap very similar to what we see in that series. Hoping it to be less talkative!
Manufactured by the company Hyperion, this multifunction unit CL4P-TP is the mascot of the Borderlands. When the adventure begins in Borderlands, the protagonist meets claptrap it guides him in the early stages of the game and also discovers its personality! Being too enthusiastic about the universe in which it lives, claptrap leads a solitary life that makes it half mad. He spends half his time looking for trouble and the second half to flee the problems that it caused. Comic and endearing, claptrap becomes a formidable weapon at the end of the game when it becomes a ninja robot! He is not heartless since it is very annoyed to know that the Beau Jack ends the production CL4P-TP units and wants revenge on him. To do this, it helps the of the game until the final mission.
It’s very interesting to hear Simon Liu talk about its creation and even more impressive to see the LEGO video with its actual size. If you want to see the rest of the creations of Simon, you can find it here. As you can see, you really have to do an incredibly painstaking work to achieve this level of detail. Admire these constructions of StarCraft and Batman!
One can only applaud the level of detail and the time needed to build such a machine in LEGO! Until we have real robots as claptrap, these constructions allow us to marvel what we can do with LEGO. What is the craziest thing you ever made in LEGO?
