I have a LONG history with Blender - I wrote some of the earliest Blender tutorials, worked for Not a Number and helped run the crowdfunding campaign that open sourced Blender (the first one on the internet!). I founded BlenderNation in 2006 and have been editing it every single day since then ;-) I also run the Blender Artists forum and I'm Head of Community at Sketchfab.


  1. @Terry, it was a chocolate vending machine (the machine being called Chocoholic and all).

    I spotted this as we were waiting to catch a lift. I looked over and saw BBB on the screen and had to take a picture of it. Unfortunately you couldn't hear the soundtrack

    My 3 year old son was there and I asked him "Who's that?". He told me "Big Buck Bunny". No one else there would have realised what the animation was :-(.

    This was my first 'Blender' related sighting in Sydney (aside from the couple of times I think I've seen Matt Ebb walking through the city ;-) ).

  2. I thought it was a vending machine selling claws, but instead it's just a vending machine with a claw.
    What a disappointment!

  3. "Big Buck Bunny plush doll!"

    BF should actually do that -- it would sell. I know I'd buy one. Possibly more than one. My kids loved BBB.

    I can't say I recommend it for ED. Action figures maybe. ;-)

  4. Now that's the weirdest sighting ever! Period.

    Thank you for brightening my day up because:
    1) Unexpected discovery hehe
    2) In claw machine? What? Chocolate? What? lol!!!! BBF doesn't even have chocolate...

    So freakin' hilarious!
    Maybe big bunny should be eating chocolate instead of apple while walking around.. mmm... gotta say, I can't complain, the more people see it, the better it will be. ;D

  5. No licensing fees, and with cheap electricity, a way to grab kids' attention, hopefully make them stay at the machine longer. I think it's a great way for a business to put this type of content to use.
