Brian Marshall runs a robot orphanage, repurposing used parts that "refused to give up on life just because they were being discarded." They are quite clever and funny, if a bit expensive at his Etsy store, but he also creates wonderful sculpture photos of his robots in action.
He gives new hope to old parts:
Then came the day when I made my first full-bodied robot sculpture, and I knew I had found my true passion. Soon, my basement became a place where all the unwanted, used up parts from commercial enterprises and residential homes could now come to find hope. This was when I created the world's first robot orphanage.
