Ukrainian Man Builds a Wooden Cylon…

A man in Ukraine who’s apparently really into Battlestar Galactica (and carpentry!) spent six months building a life-size wooden Cylon. That’s a robot character from the show…let’s just move on…

Dmitry Balandin, a crane operator in Zaporizhzhya, created the Cylon out of 500 wooden parts without the help of blueprints. He says he’d love to make metal models, but can’t because his apartment is too small. Eventually, Balandin hopes to build not just a spouse for his current Cylon, but an entire family too. Aw, Cylon babies.

Balandin opened up his home for Reuters and shared his daily interactions with his undeniably awesome wooden friend.
