BB-Servo
« on: July 21, 2018, 11:30:51 AM »
Has anyone tried making the BB-8 Tom Servo (BB-Servo) from season 11?

It appears that his base is a lamp globe. So, according to my calculations, the globe diameter should be between 14 and 16 inches (which could be wrong).

Which means something like the 2 globes below would make for a good candidate for the base:

https://www.amazon.com/16-White-Acrylic-Globe-3201-16020-003/dp/B00435DYTM/ref=pd_day0_hl_60_6?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B00435DYTM&pd_rd_r=b9ac18b5-8d00-11e8-aded-f58ee0318b53&pd_rd_w=0HNtG&pd_rd_wg=HzqE4&pf_rd_i=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_p=1675207170591242776&pf_rd_r=WRYH9ZA020C83HDHC7SP&pf_rd_s=desktop-dp-sims&pf_rd_t=40701&psc=1&refRID=WRYH9ZA020C83HDHC7SP

https://www.amazon.com/14-White-Acrylic-Globe-3201-14020-003/dp/B0054PNR6A/ref=pd_lpo_vtph_60_tr_t_2?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=WRYH9ZA020C83HDHC7SP

The 5.25" hole could/would be covered up by the red bowl below Servo's head.

I believe that picture was in a Kickstarter update from Joel.

I have not made one but PuppetGarage is known to lurk here...

I think you would be fine with either of the globes you linked.  If you design the stencils for it make sure to share!  I have one of the spinmaster BB8s and I am very tempted to convert him to a BB-Servo now.
