Yes Ladies and Gentlemen, this is a replica of the wrecking ball wielded by Dr. Ivo Robotnik In his first ever brawl against Sonic the Hedgehog back in 1991. This wrecking ball is extremely symbolic to the series because it sprouted, from its first swing, a lifetime rivalry that has on multiple times threatened the very existence of the planet Mobius. It remains, to this day, one of the most reused boss fight accessories in the veteran series. It truly is a classic boss mechanic, so I decided to replicate it and here are the results!!
The Wrecking Ball is made out of the following items: one standard globe, painted brown and orange to be faithful to the original design (finished off with clear coat to be super shiny); a wooden chain with a convenient hook, painted silver for a metalic look; Metal wire with washers and buttons, to attach the ball to a clip-on climbing ring; a clip-on climbing ring, to make chains conveniently interchangeable; duct tape, to hold the climbing ring in place; and a plastic cover, taken from a nebula ball I disassembled (Just to make it look nice and steamlined).
This was a tedious project that spanned over two weeks in construction. It wasn't easy, but I eventually got it done and oh does it looks shiny! *Squee*
I made this to be my prop I would carry around at "The Anime Festival of Orlando" (AFO) this weekend. If you're wondering; Yes, I will be cosplaying as Dr. Ivo Robotnik (Modern version).
