    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.

    LOL. Yes that metal flake paint is touchy. Thin coats.

    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.
