What do you do when a totally cute Kaiju attacks? Well you deploy an equally cute Jaeger! That term seems at odd with itself, "cute Jaeger", but tell me this rendition of the Russian mech by builder chubbybots isn't adorable. What hope do the Kaiju have when they are overpowered with squee?
I'm totally loving this micro chibi Yamato by builder delayice. I'm sure the first instinct you'd have with this thing approaching in space is "awww", but as soon as it unleashed it's arsenal on you you'd quickly change your tune. But even in the panic you'd still be stifling a smile, it's just too darned cute.
Yes, ED-209 was a bit of a failure, he had a 'glitch' or two (tell that to Kenny). But if he hadn't had his initial issues the Robocop program wouldn't have moved forward, and Clarence Boddicker would probably have a stronghold on Old Detroit right now...I digress.
Sure he's a mindless killing machine, sure he didn't work (who cares, spare parts for 20 years1) but you cannot dispute the absolute squee value of this adorable ED-209 from Grantmasters. I just want to hug it.
Can a military ship make you squee? I'd say this one can. It's an adorable mashup of cruiser, destroyer and battleship by Dwalin Forkbeard. Combine those, add some adorable proportions and plenty of moveable weaponry, and you've got a seriously cute floating vessel of death. Imagine standing on the deck of your warship, admiring this thing and making "awww" sounds, then you see the torpedo screaming at you.
Here's a cute and squee-riffic collection from one of my favorite builders, KOS brick. He calls these Brick Buddies, I call them adorable. They're like Nerdly's pop culture cousins, and I want my own collection of them immediately. Click through for even more of these cuddly little wonders.
I had a fantastic, albeit short time at 24 hour Toy Break last night. If you missed it, I revealed something amazing, a plush Nerdly! This was the prototype (hand made by Flat Bonnie, numbered 01), and sold for $75 to benefit the show. But more are on the way and you'll get your chance to win one hopefully soon. Stay tuned for details!
