Here's a test of two of the axis. Rotation is next. Tom will actually be attached on a pipe 8" above the table surface.

One question, how do you keep the head from flying off? ;)

Lol, nothing yet. Tape I guess. I'd hate to have to glue it.

Thanks! I need to attach Tom Servo to the platform. Now it's like he's riding a mechanical bull.

It's the "like" for the new Google+ social networking site... but everyone has used it as a "sign of approval" since forever ago ;)

I've got Tom's mouth servo added. The servo is mounted to the controll rod in the hoverskirt and will rotate with Tom's head.
