Artist Aburaya Tonbi created this brilliant collection of superhero characters with robotic characteristics. The series displays the artist's use of sketching and illustration combined with an imagination for robot heroes. Inspired by Gundam animation, all of the illustrations boast consistency and fun details.

Each of the characters resembles an iconic hero based on their colorization and accessories. The images are drawn as stubby robots with oversized heads. The immaculate interpretation of each character presents a fascinating transformation.

There is also a wide variety of characters ranging from Wolverine, Spider-Man and Iron Man to Qubeley and Professor X. One particularly interesting transformation is The Hulk, who is drawn with a robotic characteristic that seems to be part of his skin, rather than the other images that resemble armor-like suits.
