Those looking to take over the world can learn a lot from Sonic the Hedgehog’s portly villain Dr. Eggman. As an evil genius with a 300 IQ, he has created countless robotic monstrosities to take over the blue blur. Now’s your chance to claim one of these robots of your own, bringing you one step closer to world domination.

Industrial designer Cristian Castro has created just the thing for Sonic the Hedgehog fans and art aficionados alike. Dubbed the “Egg-771,” this robot is a dead ringer for Dr. Eggman’s Crabmeat. Made out of recycled materials, fiberglass, and steel (and apparently part of a Volkswagen bug), the 12’x7′ Egg-771 made the rounds at the Bones of Steel event.
