Sci-fi metal sculptures: Transformers, Terminator and Star Wars

By Kristen Nedopak  //  Science Fiction, Star Wars, Visual Art  //  Comments Off on Sci-fi metal sculptures: Transformers, Terminator and Star Wars

Kristen with the Predator outside Titanic

While perusing the Venice Beach boardwalk, I stumbled upon an incredible metal sculpture of an old school Predator at Titanic Boutique. After snagging a photo of one of my favorite alien life forms with my camera, I checked out the huge collection of metal art which included fan favorites such as the Terminator, Optimus Prime, Boba Fett and Darth Vader—you can see them all below.

These pieces are highly detailed, well-made, and quite a unique addition to Venice, in comparison to the multitude of overly touristy hat, clothing, and jewelry beach-side shops donning the strip. The small sculptures will run you around $95, and I didn’t dare ask about the large ones!

Titanic is run by Antonio and Karina Rendon. I had the pleasure of speaking with Antonio, who was very nice and informative, and allowed me to take as many pictures as I wanted. Thanks guys!

In 1977, the year of my birth, one of the greatest film series known to Sci-fi fans across the planet was born: Star Wars. Here’s a tribute to the characters, creatures, and far away worlds that inspired us all… and to the man who started this whole insanity: George Lucas!

Best mode of transportation: The Spaceship

On a daily basis, I hear my friends talk about what car they’d love to drive. A BMW this or that. I don’t know about you, but there’s another form of transportation I’d kill to take to work every day: a spaceship!

In lieu of fans everywhere that agree, here’s a look at some of the coolest, creepiest, and funniest spaceships to ever to grace TV and film.

Death Star (Star Wars)

Though technically a space station, this moon-shaped creation needs to be on the list!

Shadow Vessel (Babylon 5)

This one is for those of you who love spiders.

Serenity (Firefly)

The coolest part about this ship is that, when it’s taking off, the lighted back end makes it look like (you guessed it) a firefly!

The Mothership (Close Encounters of the Third Kind)

Stargate Atlantis

Though the exterior is also cool, it’s the gate room that makes the ships in any Stargate series unique!
