Wired Article Photos
« on: April 23, 2014, 12:44:57 AM »






Beautiful images of original bots from the show.  Check out the real lamp arms on Crow and the engine detail on Servo.  Also check out the spacer between Crow's eyes.  It's nice to see that detail on a real screen-used bot, but I still think it's ugly and better to hide the eye mechanism completely; doesn't ruin the illusion as much.

Most interesting part of the photo?  Many of those parts are Lil' Monsters originals.

Corrected:  All these parts are all from forum regular Robert Bukoski!  Sorry for the mistake, Bob :(

I hate to bust everyone's bubble, but those aren't screen-used original bots from the show. Those are two of six bots I built for Joel last year. I used many original parts on them (MLB, shoulders, net) and the rest of the parts are from my own castings. :)

I actually talked to Joel over the weekend, and he verified that the bots were from your store.

Sorry for the mistake, Bob.

I've corrected my original post to reflect the updated information.
