Bob "Plaseebo" Conge has crafted two wonderful customs for the upcoming Project Remix aspect of the "Giant Robot Biennale 3," which will be held at the Japanese American National Museum (369 East First St., Los Angeles, CA 90012) from September 22nd through January 20th, 2013. The Project Remix part of the show will feature over 80 artists from seven countries customizing an UglyDolls and/or Giant Robot Mascot vinyl figure(s), to be displayed alongside an exhibition of works by Rob Sato, Deth P. Sun, Ako Castuera, Eishi Takaoka, Saelee Oh, Sean Chao, Albert Reyes, and Zach Gage.

Conge tackled both platforms wonderfully, completely altering the UglyDolls piece by affixing the head onto a toy tank with an LED light nestled inside to illuminate from within, creating "Dave Tank" (as he is named). His Giant Robot Mascot, on the otherhand, is much less radically changed though it does feature inner lighting as well; with baby in hand, this custom's name being "The Baby Sitter Robot" makes perfect sense. The duo, to be sure, will grab the attention of those passing by… especially if the lights go out.
