Hey There, Little Nightmare: A Walking Skull Sculpture

August 8, 2016

This is Skull Walker 2.0, a walking skull sculpture built by Japanese artist Y Nakajima and inspired by the movement of Theo Jansen's kinetic sculptures. Now listen -- I love skulls, and walking is okay if I absolutely have to, but I'm much of a fan of walking skulls. Skulls, like the heads surrounding them, should roll. Especially those of my enemies. Man, it's really been a while since I've done proper battle with an enemy. I should probably stop with all the stealth assassinations, but I've really been on a real ninja kick lately. My grappling hook is supposed to be here by Wednesday.

Keep going for a video of the skull in action.

Thanks to Alan, who agrees the skull bone is definitely not supposed to be connected to the little creepy leg bones.

    Make it steam powered and you'll have a winner there.

    I think the skull needs to be lower down to give it that spider look. Very nicely done though.

    Not calling it a skullpture feels like a real missed opportunity.

    Eh, the spookiness is immediately eliminated for me by the whiny electric motor sound.

  • Bling Nye

    The only thing that would make this better is if it pooped a trail of Skittles or gum drops or whatever colorful candies you prefer.

  • Meh

    Damn even before watching it it gave me chicken skin..

    If I was to direct/produce a horror movie...I would want 1,100 of these little buggers involved in a chase scene. They would also squeak and have tiny glowing red eyes.
