Paul McCue Gives Pop Culture Robot Characters a Victorian Makeover

Anything robotic is instantly cool, but Paul McCue may have just discovered a way to amplify the awesomeness of cyborgs and androids by giving them steampunk makeovers. That’s right, McCue takes pop culture favorites like Iron Man, Optimus Prime, Darth Vader, Bumblebee and Boba Fett and crafts masks in their likeness with a retro Victorian theme. The results, as you can see for yourself, are a mishmash of the best aspects from both worlds.

Each Paul McCue science fiction helmet features rivets, giving it a not-quite-modern aesthetic. Many of the masks appear to be made from brass material and capture the overall look of fantasy Victorian era gadgetry.

Those interested in getting their hands on one of these badass cross-genre creations will be happy to learn that McCue sells them on his Etsy shop.
