These flexible Junkbots from Mechworld don’t just rely on their charming dystopic junkyard looks to get by, they’re useful, too. For example, the junkbot above makes a pretty neat phone holder, from boingboing.

Etsy seller MechWorld makes beautiful, ~$100 junkbots out of miscellaneous hardware. They’re extremely poseable, have functional variations (like holding your phone), and there’s even a Wall-E. They’re pretty heavy — 2-3lbs — and ship from Zhuhai, China.
