Robo Gromit – Dr Barbados

Having finally met and seen Dr Barbados work up close at this years ToyconUK I was excited to see a custom of one of my boy hood favourite characters been customised by Dr Barbados and he didn’t disappoint one bit.

It was a rotocast resin figure and Dr Barbados used super sculpey, aluminium and brass tubing and plastic gears to build it. Even Dr Barbados copper weathering isn’t over done which is a plus. If you ever get the chance to see Dr Barbados work then please go and take a look, his paint work and sculpting skills are dope! deserves more limelight in my opinion.
