This chubby Nintendo character has now been rendered in robot form with the metallic Yoshi Mecha Robot. Created by Kodykoala, the hard-cased magnified automaton houses a three-dimensional figure of the beloved rotund Super Mario figure.

Acting as a pilot within the mouth of a machinist image of himself, the green frog-like creature is released from his console constraints and regains control of his own actions. The Yoshi Mecha Robot sculpture is one way this artist is bringing old favorite technologies into the future.
