  1. Agree with #1. Unless these ones actually work, which would be off the fuckin’ chain.

  2. This is so like a concept I made a few years back and then rehashed (with a view to completing) for my portfolio. Actually, I’m having one of those “you waited too long, you fool!!” moments, that the internet so often inspires.

    It’s very similar and coincidentally I had just moved from Australia when I did it. It also involved sticking model weapons (Warhammer 40k) to insects..

    I am not going to mention any details specifically; if I get round to it, it’ll be sweet! :)

  3. They don’t look any more violent to me than other freakisly large insects with fighter wings…and drop shadows.

  4. It makes perfect sense – if the enemy are using cyborg insects against you, the ultimate defense weapon is the insect killer i.e cyborg bat!

  5. I swear this was some 80’s cartoon on weekday afternoons. That pic was the crummy toys they sold. Crummy because the missiles wouldn’t actually shoot off of the toy. The shows theme song was awesome though:
    GO GO GO GO CY-BOR BUGS!
    STOP THE WORM-LORS, CY-BOR BUGS!
    MADE OF METAL, MADE OF BUG!
    DEFEND BETTLETONIA.

    Okay, I’m lying. Sorry to dash anyone’s hopes of a live action film of this being made.

    You should take that idea to Hollywood.
    We need a movie like that in this world of ours.

  7. I never saw banksy create a scorpion tank, Tarantula with wheels, helicopter butterfly or a cyborg bat. I think these are pretty unique concepts – if anything its inspired by the above links by takuan

  8. Looks like there are more cyborg insects to come. A whole army of them!
