Tom Servo / Cleaning and Polishing Servo’s Dome
« on: October 03, 2018, 10:05:32 PM »
Any tips on buffing Servo’s noggin up?

I’m considering the Novus polishing kit. It’s got three different runs to clean plastic and get rid of scratches.

Crow T. Robot / Floralier “Netting”
« on: September 28, 2018, 01:15:57 AM »
So, are there any photos that show the plastic netting on the floraliers having been removed?

The black paint always seems to flake off of the nets so it’d make sense to cut them out...

Crow T. Robot / Template for cutting Crow's bowling pin?
« on: September 15, 2016, 07:47:09 PM »
I know we all kind of have a "Do Whatever Works For You" approach to cutting Crow's pin, but with imaging software being what it is, has anyone thought about scanning some Crow pics and creating a screen-accurate template for two parts of the pin?

I realize there were several different Crows with several different styles of cuts, but I'm sure we could come to some sort of consensus, right?

The title says it all. My new Crow needs one more authentic floralier tray and I've got side-injected Crown pins for anyone who can help me out.


UPDATE: Got a floralier tray. Thanks for looking.

I think we all know the score here?  ;)

Has anyone contributed to the Kickstarter campaign?

I won't lie-- I'm a little nervous. I'm not a huge fan of Felecia Day or the Nerdist guy who is taking over as host, but I'm sure they'll play the parts well.

Oh, and as they've been saying, spread the URL:

Bot Building - General Discussion / Painting over metal flake paint...
« on: October 27, 2013, 08:22:25 PM »
So, as I start on my bot restoration, I find myself with a big uncertainty: How well does metal flake take to being painted over?

Will a few good coats of primer do the job? Will filler putty stick to it? Or is it best to just start anew?

So, has anyone worked with predominantly replica parts? Are the new resin pins, for instance, easier to work with than the old-school plastic pins? Was it more difficult to cut Crow's mouth using the resin copy? What about vacuformed bowls? Are they as thick and sturdy as original Boo Bowls?

I understand replica parts are a bit of a necessary evil at this point in the game. It's just been too long since some of these things were made...But I still sort of have some apprehension when it comes to them.

And, yeah, I see the irony of it all considering BBI used both resin and vacuformed copies from the get-go. :)

Crow T. Robot / Sizes for the Cooper XL7-FG
« on: October 07, 2013, 05:02:06 PM »
Though is seems BBI used different sizes of Coopers throughout he years, is there a size you guys prefer for your builds? Does YOUR Crow need to have a specific size for him to be YOUR Crow?

It seems like BBI used a small size for theJoel years:

And then a large size for the Mike/Sci-Fi years:

It seems the angle of the net changes over the years, as well, with it resting slightly lower in the Sci-Fi years.
