Industria Mechanika would like to welcome Jake Parker and his fun, whimsical works to our list of collaborators! Jake has worked in the entertainment industry for over 10 years and has contributed to 4 feature films: Titan A.E., Horton Hears a Who, Ice Age 3, and Rio. He is also the creator of the Missile Mouse graphic novels and recently he’s begun illustrating children’s books. His first to come out is the Astonishing Secret of Awesome Man. Jake is a huge fan of the mechanical. “Robots, cars, tanks, jets…if it has a pilot, I’m all over it.”
The first kit we’re collaborating with Jake on is the Chompbot #5 seen above. It’s a really fun, all new design he did based on some of his prior works. The pilot will be approx 50mm, the same size as your average 1/35 scale figure and the Chompbot approximately 210mm tall making for a very nice-sized piece. We’ll also be working on some individual figures to accompany this kit and Jake is considering doing a small comic back-story to include in the package.
Here’s a small sample of some of Jake’s other works »
