Reboot Skin – Epic & Nostalgic TV Robot!
Reboot Skin for Minecraft is a really awesome skin that turns your Minecraft character into an epic, super colourful TV robot! Sound bonkers? That’s because it is! Read on to find out if this funky gogglebox is worth your time.
What is the Reboot skin?
The Reboot skin is definitely unique. It has a theme that isn’t what you’d initially reach for when thinking of a Minecraft skin. If you’re into skins that stand out from the crowd, then this is a skin you need to check out.
What is the Reboot skin like to use?
The most eye catching part of this skin is the novel, 90s style TV screen that embellishes the top of the skin. The TV adds some old technological charm with some pleasant retro aesthetic, while the screen displays this wonderful pastel rainbow depiction of the infamous SMPTE colour bars you’d see on old television sets.
It does feel that nostalgia has given a fair amount of inspiration to the skin. You can sense they have pulled inspiration from current 80s nostalgia as well as including hallmarks from art genres like Retrofuturism. The overall effect of this is incredibly unique and allows the skin to stand out in a world of thousands upon thousands of Minecraft skins.
The outfit that makes up the rest of the skin is a fantastical jumpsuit that matches the pastel purples found on the TV head. The outfit looks almost like an astronaut’s suit or even layers of forged metal dyed in funky colours like a beautifully colourful robot.
On further inspection, you begin to notice the creator’s use of alterations in the colours they have chosen to work with. One might expect the skin to have too much going on, with a spectrum of clashing colours, yet it maintains the much needed balance for a skin like this.
Asymmetry can also be viewed in the same way with this skin, as the lower sections of the skin aren’t totally identical, but the juxtaposition between the patterned straight lines works perfectly with the more idiosyncratic details found on the pants and feet.
I think this skin would be great for any decent sci-fi server and most adventure maps. It has its quirky charm for sure, but it still presents a great level of quality along with a concept that tows the line perfectly between silly and serious.
Some more serious players might be initially put off by the creator’s unabashed use of bright colours and amusing character design, but this is definitely a skin even the most firmly realistic of Minecraft players should try out.
