    I found my newest project this one won't be pep at all but it's sure to be a pain in my neck. As for the head I already figure I'm going to use a doll head and do a lot of heavy modding, as for the mouth if I can find small enough dentures that's what I'll use for that area, the fun part for this is going to be the wires, metal parts and animatronics which I figure with some servos I can make the eyes, eyebrows, mouth, head and arms to move. Unless I can get lucky enough to find most of the metal parts I may have to get some pieces milled in aluminum or done in shapeways in metal. If you guys are curious as to what I'm doing or have'nt seen it yet here are some 360p Screenshots I was able to retrieve.

    I really like all their music videos except for this one just because it's so weird and creepy. The song is fine, it's just that music video....

    Funny how Jonny mentioned Chucky, because I believe that is actually the animatronic inner workings of the moving Chucky in the film.

    Very sweet idea, cant wait to see it started

    Would'nt surprise me at all if this is the real "Chucky" animatronic robot, without the skin. The one thing I'm trying to figure out before I really get stared on this is that I need to find a active Animatronics forum to ask them some questions. Do you guys have any suggestions for Animatronics or Robotic Forums I should talk to?

    Woah that is one freaky, creepy robot right there!

    An ambitious project to say the least, all the best with it!

    Im pretty sure it is the chucky robot.
    Im not big on robotics, but i recently used a Wowwee talking elvis bust in a project of mine, and his face is pretty similar, comes with little teeth and is full of awesome programming for the eyebrows and stuff.

    I think if your confident enough to try, you could take out all the mechanisms and put them into a newer head sculpt...

    Give this a look, hope it helps

    Thanks for the info, I just wonder if that would be too big? The teeth kinda don't look right so I would still have to change them out, I wish I could find some kind of video footage of the robotics inside Chucky just so I could see if the animatronics are the same or if they modified any of it for the DP video.

    Youre welcome
    It is pretty big.. Might be a problem.
    The bluray of childs play has an in depth look at the the making od chucky and show him without the skin...check this out on youtube. About 3 minutes in they show you the insides. Its definately the same doll as the technologic video
    Hopw it helps

    Yeah I see it now it's definatly the same head. Probably the same body and everything.

    Close, but the Robot was designed by Tony Gardner and his team at Alterian, Inc. interestingly enough he would later provide the animatronic effects for "Seed of Chucky".

    I see that and think of Janeane Garofalo. I think it's the mouth...

    Well I figure they probably used the same group for the animatronics for each movie. Anyways back to work on this at least the video gave me a bit more reference material and research to do.

    You can ask Tony or Alterian on their facebooks:
    Tony Gardner | Facebook
    Alterian | Facebook
    and they said that this is the same robot they used in Seed of Chucky (2004) But Daft Punk didn't use this robot until 2006. Tony Gardner has worked with Daft Punk a lot- I think he even designed their helmets. This little guy might be kinda hard to build- he costs around 4 millon $ to make, but I don't care you should build him :D

    also check out the behind the scenes on Seed of Chucky- you can see this same animatronic in it.
