    I traded a whole bunch of parts I had collected to the guy at the botcave.net about 6 years ago.

    I recceived two somewhat poorly made bots.

    So I tore'em apart and re-did a bunch

    Enjoy.

    Rebuild and repaint of Botcave bots.

    But... if you hadn't used those special parts to make your robot friends, you'd be able to control where the movies begin and end. :lol

    Your bots look great, Michael. The "e-pin" on Crow is a really scarce item these days. I'm glad to see someone else remembers the bots as fondly as I do. I really miss that show. You've inspired me. I'm going to have to dig my bots out and redo them, the "golden spider duck" and the "squat, crimson pig". :D I think the reason they canceled MST3K is because Sci-fi knew their own movies would sooner or later be fair game. Can you imagine the bots ripping into "Mansquito" or "Frankenfish"? :lol

    "Your experiment this week is...ECW wrestling." :eek:

    Those are great. I have 2 Servo heads- one is the cylinder style- that I have been talking about building up for years and years and years... It's time.

    These two were classic on that show.
    Beautiful work on them all you need now is a small home theatre with row seating, a huge screen many bad movies and them sitting there adding their own dialogue.
    It would be great if you could mod them with voice chips that had random phrases from the shows.

    I've never found just the right spring thingies for Servo's arms. Mine are too stiff and make noise when the move. I need something more loose so the hands wiggle just right.

    I used the springs from an actual Mr. Mooney, or C. More Bunz doll. I used the air bladders too so the arms would move, until one of the bladders sprung a leak :(

    Awright,....now I wanna cry. :cry

    Let me be the next to say both,....fantastic job, (and I am rightfully ashamed that my unbuilt bots sit in limbo in a cupboard), and dammittohell do I miss that show... :(
    Now all you need to do is get Gypsy and a box of Hamdingers going and you're golden.

    In parting I have but two things to say,.....

    MANOS...

    and,....

    wokkachikka,...wokkachikka,...wokkachikka,........MITCHELL...

    Manos, the... hands of fate? :confused

    Coincidentally, I was just reviewing some of my old tapes the other day. I have to say, not only do I miss the show, I've missed it since the Joel-Trace-Frank days. :unsure

    What do you think, sirs? ;)

    Super spiffy.

    Those guys are so cool.

    Now go have yourself a crappy movie party.
    I suggest one my favorite bad movies "Queen of Outer Space" with Zsa Zsa Gabor. You will get to see all the recycled costumes from Forbidden Planet.

    "Warrior of the lost world" is our favourite - which has the classic song at the end "Aw Du Peepo Abba in Da Woooaa" :)

    Talking of that is that episode on any of the DVD sets?
