They call him the Gunsect. He’s the baddest bug in the west, and he’s here to bring law and order to the lands beyond the hive. This gun slinging, crumb eating critter by Paddy Bricksplitter is here to shoot first and ask questions latter. After a hard days work, maybe a few poker games, you can be sure to see him ride off into the sunset. Or is that a giant bug zapper? Nobody knows.
On the sunny central coast of California we enjoy a fairly bug-free life. Sure, there are trillions of them, but they really don't bother us, few bite or sting, and most are so small they go unnoticed. So, I think if I saw one of these in real life I might have a mini heart attack, even if they are completely harmless. A brilliant MOC by Grant Davis.
Do you suppose less people would be creeped out by bugs if they were steam powered and had adorable little gears and complex mechanisms inside them? One can only suppose, but we can envision that possibility with this brilliant mechanical beetle by Dwalin Forkbeard.
On a recent visit to Hawaii I remembered something about home that I take for granted, very few bugs. It takes a trip outside your bubble sometimes to realize what you have. Not that I have anything against bugs (at least the ones that don't want to nibble on me). But I suppose if all bugs had fun googly eyes like these from legorobo:waka they would be more entertaining to be around.
