The Making of the Incredible SDCC Giant Mech Robot

by Kenny Hoeschen

The special effects wizards at the Stan Winston School, along with the combined resources of WIRED, YouTube, Legacy Effects, and Conde Nast Entertainment, built the giant mech robot that wowed attendees and won our hearts when the mech befriended a little girl at this year’s San Diego Comic Con. The folks at the Stan Winston School have shared a number of videos showing the various stages of the mech’s building and testing and a great epilogue of the entire process and the mech’s visit to Comic-Con. We’ve shared the videos here in order from earliest prototype to the epilogue video.

The video above is Day 9 of of the 24-day build where mechanics Jim Kundig, Peter Weir Clarke have a working prototype mech for the group’s scrutiny. Next, below, is Day 14, where mechanics Jim Kundig, Peter Weir Clarke and Kan have a working, rebuilt mech with a few basic shells for silhouette. That is video is followed by one of the last “Dress Rehearsals” before taking the big boy to Comic-Con. Then we have the mech visiting Hollywood Blvd to celebrate the last day of Geek Week on YouTube. And finally, the epilogue put together by the team.
