RIP Carousel Executive Snack Dispenser... Now What?
« on: April 05, 2018, 03:19:20 AM »
So now that Carousel has discontinued Tom Servo's head, can anyone tell me a good alternative?
I have an 18 year old Servo in need of a new globe, and the ol' snack dispensers are scarce to say the least.
Suggestions?
Thanks.

I tried to buy just the Snack Dispenser from Bob, and he wouldn't  just because of them no longer being made.

^Dear God, I hope so.

With the show back in production, talk about a bad time to stop producing such a pivotal part!

There are some knockoff sport related one's that you can find on Amazon for various prices (I used those on my "no original part 'Tim' Servo I posted last year). The problem is that everything is perfect except for the dome itself. Unless someone starts making reproduction domes that could connect, there could be a dilemma.

I'm in the process of designing replicas of the opaque parts of the snack dispenser for 3D printing, (Actually I'm working on replicating parts for both Tom and Crow). But will have to figure out how to source the acrylic transparent globe part somehow.

Has anyone tried one of these...

Itís metal and the globe is glass but the lack of a seam on the globe is a plus.
You can always sand and repaint the body of the dispenser and reprocessing the original cap as a 3D printed piece should be easy.
