Ever dreamed about owning a detailed, life-sized Predator replica to display proudly in your living room? How about if we said it was not only possible (depending on your income, of course), but that you could find one made entirely out of metal? That impossible dream is now becoming reality for some lucky collectors out there – thanks to the Bangkok, Thailand-based artist team known as Kreatworks.
These amazing artists dig through piles of junk metal, discarded vehicles and literal mountains of loose hardware to assemble their welded wares, which not only include gigantic renditions of Predators, Aliens, Transformers and Terminators, but also original pieces ranging from steampunk pirates to alien lamps and beautifully macabre fusions of animal skulls with metal gadgetry, like this:
Obviously each and every piece is a handmade work of art, so expect to shell out some major coin for these wonders. But looking at these things close up, it's not hard to believe that folks are paying thousands of dollars to have these masterpieces in their homes. It's also no surprise that they sell out almost instantly after posting in the Kreatworks Etsy shop.
Thankfully they also turn out some smaller pieces that are every bit as gorgeous, and more in line with folks with relatively limited budgets. Take the sick little skull and cute mini-xenomorph shown below, for example. Like all the rest, they're hand-made and gorgeous, so be sure to drop by their shop regularly if you're interested in picking up one of their latest creations.
For a 360-degree view, here's a clip of their finished life-size Alien statue that just about made me pass out in ecstasy:
