    Star Wars would have been infinitely better if every robot randomly released bursts of searing hot steam.

    Can we put a stop to all things steampunk?

      Friend, if you don’t like steampunk you’ve come to the wrong place.

      As Lobster has pointed out, in this place, no.

      But I do hope steampunk can rise above the use of nonfunctional gears as a design motif. I’m all for gears, but only if the =do= something, or at least look like they could. I think any mechanical bits should spark the imagination; if they are obviously nonfunctional, it’s not nearly as interesting.

      To be fair, this junkbot is pretty sweet, and only indulges a tiny bit in superfluous gearage.

        Agreed.  While scrollwork is decorative, gears have never been.  We’ve been seeing a flood of cheap, knock-off steampunk lately and it just looks bad.
