Other MST3K Related Bots / Re: Waverly
« on: March 01, 2018, 02:07:07 PM »
Alright, new job has been obtained and workshop/garage is back in usable shape.  So I have some time to get back to fixing Waverly.

I need:
- A new shoulder and pull the shoulders tighter so he is not hunchbacked.
- Rebuild mouth so it is operational
- Rebuild arms so they are the correct length - the real one has a straight part with a ball at the end in the shoulder for the joint (I did not do that).

The real Waverly mouth operates similarly to Crow with elastic going through the bridge of the mouth.  He also has a head turning mechanic that I may forgo for complexity in the smaller size.

Smits's Jumbo Waverly is going to be assembled soon aswell.  He is all painted and sitting in the chair in my workshop taking up space...

If I ever build a second servo for myself, I am going your route Packratt.  That is phenomenal.

Anyway, yeah, seems like a nice bunch of folks here, so I wonder if I should post a build log for my automated bots and other stuff I'm doing so you folks could give me suggestions as I go? I don't want to be too noisy.
Do it man!  I am very interested.

If he matches the other bots, there would be no reason to be articulated.  I heard about what happened to you on social media about this, sorry that it happened.  We may be a small community here, but we are atleast not jerks...

I had a pipe break behind my workbench three weeks ago when we didnt get above 10 degrees for more than a few days.  So the garage was flipped upside down and everything got rearranged.  It was the pipe that feeds the hot water heater so I did not feel comfortable fixing it myself.  Luckily the plumber was a huge fan of Scifi and specifically Starwars.  Parts of jumbo waverly were piled in a clear bin on the workbench and he finally asked what it was.  So I went and got faux Waverly and BB8 and he did the whole repair for the cost of materials.

So now that the garage is usable again, I can work on fixing Waverly and building Jumbo Waverly.  Once Waverly is working he might start singing opera.  Gotta start building that hype for Season 12.

Until then BB8 on ice:

Alienators, Exterminator 2, Robot Jox, Eye of the Tiger, and Beyond the Time Barrier.  Those are all owned by Shoutfactory and all prime for MST3k.

I love that you are building them based around servos.  Whats your endgame here?  Easier operation or are you going to do something like rig them up and cut the audio lines out of the films then build movement routines based around the clips so they move when the ones on the screen do?

Awesome work.  I love the leg concept and the proper nondescript feet.  Could you scale it down to an even smaller size?  To fit in with the season figures.

Also can I see a full shot of that Big Trouble Poster?  Ive not seen that one.

Has anyone scanned the parts and have 3d files?  I now have a 3d printer so I can make a proper Waverly!

The melting part looks like the hotglue used to hold the matches in.
