Tom Servo / Re: Tom Servo's Engine Block Found!...Finally
« on: December 24, 2018, 07:20:26 PM »
In issue 5.2 of the Satellite News it said that the last door in the Mike Door sequence used the Buggy's wheel as the handle.

(first page)

It's not the same steering wheel... I just they just said that for fun (heh!)

I believe this may be in reference to Servo's slot car from Warrior of the Lost World. It was just a platform with wheels, but it looked like it was an RC car that the body shell was ripped off of. Perhaps the wheel came from that?

Awesome find! Is this the last undiscovered part besides S1 Cambot's bowl eye, or are there still more?

Wow! That's fantastic. I like the little touches on the VHS tape labels :)

Based on all of the flecks of stuff on Crow, the picture looks like it was taken during the episodes where Crow was frozen because Trace was away.

Holy crap, nice find! How did you figure out what it was?

Awesome find! Glad all of those years of hunting paid off :)

The list of bot parts that no one's found yet shrinks smaller. This means that all we're missing is the car for Servo's engine block, and KTMA Cambot's... everything, right?

At the rate you're finding things, maybe we'll know every part of every bot within a few years!

Sorry for digging up this old thread, but I figured I should mention that I watched an interview with Joel a few days ago (https://youtu.be/PHPgWAnu_Gw?t=12m12s) and he mentions that he used an AT-AT, confirming what bryguytoofly used as correct. We also get very clear looped footage of Cambot from the Season 2 intro. Strangely, he states that this is the "original Cambot."

Like a few other people in this thread, I'm interested in figuring out what KTMA Cambot is made of. Here's a color version of the pic from the first page, taken from J. Elvis Weinstein's twitter: https://twitter.com/jelvisweinstein/status/505086042848776192:

 I think that it confirms that the eyes are the bowling pins used for Servo's shoulders and Crow's mouth. As for the rest of him, I'm far from 100% sure, but I just don't think that the head is a doll seat. The angle looks wrong for it to be a seat of any kind, but again, I'm just guessing.
Given the scale of those pins, KTMA Cambot must be pretty darned big. Maybe it's just the lighting, but it almost looks like his body is 2 separate objects, one front piece that we see in the intro, and another, much larger back piece that actually attaches to his head. Perhaps part of a large toy car that a child could sit in? I've never quite seen a sled that looked like that, but it could be one. The strange part that puffs out right below the head could be a socket for the sled runners and we're actually looking at the underside of the body of the sled. It's a shame we can't see the lower part of the body, if only Joel had moved over a foot or so... Maybe someone should just ask Joel on Twitter or in person at some point.

I do wonder if they planned to use Cambot more than they actually did during that season. It's a pretty large and elaborate puppet to only use for a < 5 second shot in the intro, but then again, he also lacks the articulated mouth that all of the other puppets have. What a mystery...

Wow, nice find! Maybe you'll find the engine block as well as whatever KTMA Cambot is made of while you're at it ;)

Everything else... / Re: MST3K KTMA Satellite of Love sound effect

Where did you manage to get an isolated recording of the sound? Also does anyone know what was used to generate this sound?
