Take-G Toys by Takegi Nakagawa - Take-G toys are made using an ancient Japanese craft called Yosegi-Mokuzougam or, marquetry. Essentially the artist inlays different textured and coloured wood pieces and other natural materials to create his figures. Takegi uses the highest quality woods such as maple, walnut, cherry and white ash in order to create toys that are not only unique and beautiful, but long lasting.
The cool futuristic robots and children figures featured above are sold only at craft exhibitions, however Takegi Nakagawa also makes a great set of construction and assembly blocks available to the public.

Multi-Articulated Junk Bots by Rupert Valero
Valero is a US soldier who, during a year deployed in Afghanistan, began constructing rudimentary robot sculptures out of the assorted flotsam he’d find out in the wastes. This hobby soon took on mad scientist levels of mastery, his little trashbots becoming increasingly elaborate and more assured in their eventual overthrow of humanity. Currently, they may not be all too helpful in the war on terror, but they’ll look damn good fighting your Ultimate Warrior action figures. Plus you can make one your own over at Rupert’s etsy!
