Full-Scale Buck Rogers Twiki ReplicaSeptember 26th, 2014
They don’t make TV science fiction shows like they used to. It’s been quite some time since we had truly entertaining sci-fi in prime time, which makes me long for classic shows like Space:1999, Battlestar Galactica and Buck Rogers in the 25th Century. Perhaps the most memorable part of Buck Rogers was Buck’s robotic sidekick, Twiki. Thanks to the dedicated work of talented artists, you’ll soon be able to have a 1:1 scale Twiki hanging out in your living room. Biddy Biddy Buck!
The guys at Resident Dreamer Studios oversaw the creation of this handcrafted, 48 inch-tall replica using reference photos, screenshots, and measurements from actor Felix Silla’s screen worn costumes. He’s made from hand-cast urethane resin, with stainless steel mesh pieces and a positionable head which can also be removed in case you’re feeling sadistic. It’s as close to the original Twiki as you can get.
If you’re wondering where Twiki’s companion Dr. Theopolis is, it turns out that they’re working on a replica of him too. Those who order Twiki will receive a priority reservation as well as a discount for Theo. Head on over to Twiki21.com to place your order now.
