MudbrainsTvDIY gives us a brief glimpse at an amazing build – he replicated the T-800 arm that Miles Dyson had in Terminator 2. It’s made entirely from cardboard, glue, and varnish. If you’ve got about 7 hours to spare, you can watch how he built it, step by laborious step.

The Cardboard Lexus

The Cardboard Lexus

Lexus UK worked with design agency NVDK, Laser Cut Works, and Scales & Models to create a full-scale, driveable replica of the Lexus IS sedan, using from 1700 laser-cut pieces of cardboard. We’re guessing it’s not as much fun to drive as the actual IS, but it’s still really cool.

The sequel to the special effects-laden film by Clinton Jones is more than six times longer than the original. It takes itself a tad too seriously but it’s still an awesome production nonetheless.

Giant Cardboard Robot Arms

Giant Cardboard Robot Arms

Perfect for group hugs – or kills. Unfortunately, they’re sold out already, but maybe you can ask the creator to make some more. Or try to make a pair yourself. All you need is cardboard anyway.

Cardboard Abrams A1 Tank

Cardboard Abrams A1 Tank

This insane vehicle was made from PVC pipe, chicken wire, over 900 zip-ties, and a crap-ton of cardboard strapped to a pickup. Total cost: $450. Driving a cardboard tank down the road: priceless.

The Cardboard McLaren
