This is the last of my giant robots in history trilogy. It's about John Henry. It's more myth than actual history, but the legend says John he was the toughest guy around back in the day, and he died of exhaustion while besting a steam-powered railroad spike hammer. It's a great story of human vs. technology. 5 colors on Sand.

Oh, and the research supports a man actually trying to dig faster than a steam-powered hammer and achieved his goal but killed himself in the process from exhaustion.

very, very good but the man's pose could be a bit more dynamic.

Thanks, @coatimundi! I hear you regarding his pose- but I was going for a contrast between the turbulent smoke and dust and panic on the ground, and John Henry confidently and calmly stepping in to take care of business.

John Henry should be the next big meme. Either that or Robot Trains.
