Hi

I'm doing another run of the Iron Giant Screw Kit.

This will be version 3 of the kit.

Improvements over version 2:

  • Vacuum casting for improved detail and less imperfections.
  • Improved cavity in the tip for a more solid and centered connection to the switch
  • Improved magnet cavities on the cap

I expect the run to take 4 to 6 weeks to complete depending on volume.


There are two versions of the kit. The static version, and the version with the electronic.
  1. The static version includes 4 main resin pieces (Head, spiral, tip, and cap), copper pipe (center core) and clear lenses
  2. The version w/ electronics also includes 3 blue LEDs, speaker, batteries, switch, schematics, magnets (to attach the cap), and per-programmed micro controller. (soldering required)

Pre-order price for the static kit is $79.95. The addition of the electronics is $10.

Shipping is $10 (per order) in the US. Additional cost for International.

Order HERE

I've had this sitting on my shelf as long as Adam Savage... what weird timing for all of this. I JUST pulled it out to get going on it literally 2 days ago.

Then today I see the "Tested" build.

I TOTALLY forgot this kit has sound!

Honestly I'm a little shocked at how messy the "cartoony" paint job was... expect better from them!

Anyway, great kit! good luck!

Crazy, right? Imagine my shock when I went to Youtube and see my kit on the front page. I hope you'll post some pictures or video of yours when it's done.

Purchased, thanks! I remember seeing your thread way back and thinking how awesome the kit was. Glad I get a chance to own it!

Thanks for doing another run. I literally watched the movie again with my 4 year old son two days ago and thought that this would make a great prop.

Just saw the tested video of Adam assembling your kit. Thought it would make a neat piece to have but what are the chances of finding one since Adam stated he had his for 5 years on a shelf. So a big thank you for creating another run of a great looking and sounding kit. My payment is on the way. Can't wait to get my own together.

I am so glad you are doing another run. I've been following Tested for a while and The Iron Giant was one of my favorite movies. As soon as I saw the video the frantic google search began!! Exited for this to be pretty on my shelf and thank you Justice for making this fantastic kit!

I came to this forum (like many others) after I saw the tested video. I've been a long time RPF user, but this is the first project I'm ready to put money up for! However, when I go to the sale link above I get a "failed to open page". Am I missing something? I'd like to get in on the pre-order before this weekend. Thanks!

Never mind, must have been a website hiccup. Placed an order. Can't wait!!

Any way we could get a schematic for the electronics, or could you just sell the electronics? I happen to own a 3D printer but not too good at circuitry.

Just to be clear, is there any deadline on having to Order this kit? It says 4-6 weeks to complete, but is that how long you'll be doing this run, or how long it'll take for you to start shipping them out?

Sure, I can sell you the electronics by itself for $10. PM me and we'll work out the details

That's how long I'm estimating it will take to finish the kits and get them shipped. If I can get them done sooner if I can, but I want to re-master one of the parts and Shapeways isn't always very fast.

I would like to have an electronics kit if possible.

Any chance for an option with finished electronics? Im not great at soldering tiny spots..

I could send you the electronic components pre-wired for an extra charge ($25). Then you could install them in the kit during assembly. But the points are not especially small. If you take a little time, you won't find it all that difficult to do yourself.
