Joel's Basement Bots
« on: November 21, 2013, 11:31:07 AM »
Wasn't sure if I should stick this in, but here looks as good as any. ;)

Recently, Joel posted a couple of "basement bots" on Twitter so I thought I'd archive it here:







Because I can't just look at them without trying to pick them apart, I sourced the legs on the first one... 

Hasbro's Iron Man 2 Rocket Boost Iron Man... so at least that one can't be from before 2010.

Recognized the bottom half of the Blue bot instantly.
It is from the WowWee Rover

He added another photo to his Twitter account the other day.

The legs are from one of those 12" Buzz Lightyear figures.

Yet another...



The t-rex head is from one of those "t-rex head on a stick" type toys... or these things:

The gold one looks like the Crow equivalent of Jethrine from The Beverly Hillbillies...

Joel recently posted a few more "Basement Bots" over on Twitter....  These are some of the older ones he sold at a store called "Props" in Calhoun Square MN.

Perhaps not mentioned because it is too obvious, but several of the bots are using toy sand castle molds.
