Tom Servo / Re: Tom Servo's Engine Block Found!...Finally

WOW!!!

A couple years ago I thought I was on the right track looking for Formula 1 cars, because that's what Joel told me it was (ah, memory). I found something pretty close and thought it might be a promising direction, but obviously it wasn't. :)

Sometimes in the show he's tilted in such a way you can see in there, and I've never spotted netting when that happens.

This is a year old but I only just found out about it:

http://www.metcalfmoving.com/moverspackersblog/moving-satellite-love/

A couple pics of shelves of video tapes (they saved the raw studio footage!), and a bunch of bot remnants!

I was surprised there was any bot material left in Minnesota. I thought they had auctioned or given it all away.

Pics are a little bigger than displayed; do the right-click thing.

I was going to wonder if these bots got cannibalized and reused for Season 11, but his happened after production wrapped.  .... or, this page was posted after production. I guess the actual move could've happened prior.

Tom Servo / Re: Season 1 Servo?
« on: June 03, 2017, 11:56:20 PM »
Also no extra lid under the globe...

Season 1 Servo seems to just means modifying the following:

1) Repositioning the shoulders forward.
2) Reusing the KTMA era Servo arm tubes.
3) Painting Servo's 'beak" white.
4) Positioning one of the Turbo Trains to be slightly off-center between the two exhaust pipes on the engine block.

I ought to make one :)

Yes I know, what I was wondering is if that "Joel's Basement" gallery are some of those very same pieces.

Tom Servo / Re: Hoverskirt Foam Bumper
« on: May 02, 2017, 12:12:58 AM »
Not sure I understand the question. Are you asking what it is, or how to apply it?

It's foam pipe insulation that comes with a slit in it lengthwise. You test fit until you determine the length you need, remove the backing for the sticky stuff, and then jam it on so that the two ends meet in the back. No need to tidy up the seam, that's how the originals were. It's the easiest part of the build. :)

I could never ascertain the context of the Joel's Basement photos. Are those bots he made for sale at that consignment store in Minneapolis way back in the day?

Crow T. Robot / Re: "Severe Shortage of Floraliers??"
« on: March 23, 2017, 11:47:50 AM »
I've been looking for Floraliers during every thrift store, flea market and garage sale visit I've made over the past 18 years. Not once have I found one in the wild.

« on: March 23, 2017, 11:45:41 AM »
I've been noticing the same overspray pattern and holes in the shoulders on Crow way back in season 4. I never would've thought that Crow would've remained in the same state that entire time! What with stunt Crows and Planet Hollywood builds and retooling for the movie, it's amazing that a CC Crow body (if not head) was still around untouched.

Remove the spring during your painting. You can remove the upper beak by sliding it up, so that helps.
I used masking tape, but you have to hand-snip a hundred little curved pieces, which is barrels o' fun.

Interesting test, thanks for sharing!
