Yes, we all know that the Hellboy is ‘devilishly’ red. Originally created by writer/artist Mike Mignola, our demonic super hero has battled and blazed his way through a slew of Nazi villains infused with dollops of dark power. But this time, for a change, we can see him in stylish silver black, wielding his boisterously over sized revolver, while being draped in his nigh ubiquitous knee height jacket.
Judging by the painstaking details, we can very well see the visage deftly crafted in manner of our much loved horned and tailed super hero, albeit in silver (as compared to red). Coming to the torso area, the slightly trimmed built reminds us more of a robot in the Terminator universe, than the robust Hellboy. Moreover, the real Steampunk vibe is captured by the ‘wired’ neck portion complimented by the spiraling texture of the chest area, straps of metallic ribs and the silvery-black color scheme of the contraption.
Coming to the factual scheme of things, according to the designers, the dimension of metallic Hellboy is approximately 230 x 200 x 120 cm. The weight of the sculpture can be a tad bit on the heftier side with 350 kg.
Now, many of you may be thinking ‘why should a Steampunk Hellboy have its own article in Green Diary’? The answer is pretty simple- because the real attraction of the metallic contraption that seriously tickled our fancy was the positively ‘green’ side of affairs. According to the creators, the entire sculpture was composed from recycled metal. They adroitly managed to salvage a myriad of components from automotive parts and other associated machinery. But you do not have to worry about the rust, as the silver-black coating has been achieved by a ‘rust protected’ lacquer.
And now, if you are sufficiently enticed by the gun totting demon, the price tag comes with a figure of $7,400.
