Win a one-off Borderlands 2 Claptrap model!

We asked 3D print model artist Psychobob to create a bespoke Claptrap figurine that we'll give away to you guys, as well as copies of the game!

We've been impressed by artist Psychobob's 3D print work based around video game characters and technology. They've included a highly detailed Atlas figure from Portal 2, and a USB-powered Dead Space Rig helmet. So when he said he wanted to work with us to build something to give away, we jumped at the chance.

With Borderlands 2 on the horizon, we thought the best thing to commission would be a build of the series' iconic service robot Claptrap. This video shows how Psychobob built the design using CAD software and is working with a 3D Printing firm to get the model made.

Let us know what you think, and stay tuned to find out how the build is going. If you want to win the finished model, simply email us with the answer to this question:

What is Claptrap's official title as given in the game?

Simply email the answer to competitions@gamespot.co.uk with your name and address. We also have five copies of the game to give away on Xbox 360 as runners up prizes! Apologies in advance, you must have a UK address to enter this competition.

This is really making me want to go back and do some 3D modelling, i haven't done any in a year and it simply sucked away my life, but i did an epic Metal Gear Mk II model back in the day

Wow, absolutely great work... The title page picture of the model doesn't seem to do it justice; when you see the model in the CAD software it really shines.

Time to add Psycobob to my list of names I should know and respect!

Mooooddooooooooo :D

I do 3D modeling if any of you are interested. On my portfolio, you will see a blog of some 3D work I have done. At the moment, I'm modeling an Xbox 360 and its controller.

I love this kind of thing me though. Never used CAD software though before.

I really don't understand why it can't be sent internationally. Heck, I'd pay for the postage if I won. Lol
