This is animatronics expert Gustav Hoegen's 2012 show reel. It's good. Gustav's work has included robots for Prometheus, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Clash of the Titans, The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Doctor Who AND MORE. It really is worth a view. Sometimes it was hard to believe the creatures I was watching were actual robots I wanted to burn with fire and not real aliens I wanted to burn with fire. The burning with fire though, that's the common denominator. FOR EVERYTHING. I swear, staring into flames -- that's when I do some of my best thinking. At least until someone from the fire department spots me and takes me in for questioning.

Hit the jump for Gustav's skills in action.

Thanks to KimFree, who agrees it's only a matter of time before you can't tell the difference between your real friends and robots pretending to be your friends.
