28 Oct 2015: Amazing Fallout 4 Unofficial Lego Minifigure
A fan-made Lego figure so perfect you would think it’s official. Made by Flickr user DSCustoms using Green Stuff molding material, it includes all the miniature details that would make any dev at Bethesda proud. A mini Pip-boy in its arm, a pistol in hand, a shotgun across its back, and so much more. You have to see it to believe it.
How did the designers at Bethesda make Mr. Handy so life-like and real? With 3D printing, of course. You have Fallout 4 lead artist Istvan Pely and Mister Handy designer Dennis Mejillones to thank for it. Apparently, making a virtual robot would take just about the same work as designing a real robot.
