Squid Game Fans Build Life-Sized Red Light Green Light Robot Replica

Squid Game fans build the life-size robot doll model from the series’ first episode, where the characters play a lethal game of Red Light Green Light.

Fans of the series Squid Game build a life-size model of the robot doll from the show’s first episode, in which the characters compete in a lethal game of Red Light Green Light. Squid Game premiered on Netflix on September 17, 2021, and was an overnight sensation, quickly becoming Netflix’s most popular series at the time and receiving critical acclaim and a bevy of awards. A second season of the series is currently being discussed, with series creator Hwang Dong-hyuk in negotiations with Netflix.

Squid Game follows a group of 456 people in severe financial debt who compete in a series of deadly children’s games in pursuit of a large cash prize. The first game the contestants play is a version of Red Light Green Light, where a giant robot doll hides her eyes, allowing the contestants to move. Any contestants caught moving when the doll looks back are immediately shot dead. Squid Game won the SAG Award for Best Stunt Ensemble for the many action sequences that helped make up the narrative.

The model is being made by fans of the series and its progress is being documented fairly extensively. The videos of its progress, posted on Instagram by user just.ayaal, don’t make it clear if the model will have a rotating head or a voice box like the one on the series, but it wouldn’t be surprising given the attention to detail being put into the recreation. It’s also unknown what the fans will do with the model or whether it’ll be available for public display. Check out the construction process below:

Squid Game’s success at the SAG Awards is the latest sign of the series’ impact on popular culture, with many cosplays and fan tributes popping up all over the world. Less lethal imitations of the games became popular on social media, including Red Light Green Light and the honeycomb cookie game from episode 2. The show’s word of mouth and viral success is credited for bringing the series to an international audience.

Squid Game is just the latest example of South Korean entertainment finding success in the West, alongside the rise of KPop and the movie Parasite winning the 2019 Oscar for Best Picture. These can be seen as steps toward having a less centralized entertainment system in Hollywood, allowing more niche foreign projects to find audiences and critical notice abroad. With season 2 of Squid Game on the way, there’s no stopping the cultural phenomenon, and whatever those artists do with their giant robot model, it’ll likely only help to cement the series’ place in pop culture.
