Hi guys, so I thought this needed to be built. I grabbed whatever references I could online and reverse/engineer one from scratch.

I did the math to scale it to 1/100 & started with the canopy. I think 1/100 is pretty close to the small-scale stop-motion puppet used in filming.

Once that was done, I modeled an armature in 3D and got the files printed. 58 total points of articulation & 111 parts.

Thanks for looking!

To be continued...

That is awesome! I remember watching RobotJox on VHS and still love it!

Your build is fantastic, are you planning to make more mechs?
Why did you go the mixed media way and not completely 3D? The result of course is what counts, and that spesks for itself.

Thanks! Same here - the robot sequences are essentially burned into my memory!


Fantastic!

Thanks!

Thanks! A few have already asked if the Kobalevsky 42/43 was in line. Still thinking about it!
I went with multiple materials for time & cost reasons. I had a whole lot of PVC lying around, and a limited budget for printing - best & worst of both worlds! :lol

That is great work. You have some nice attention to detail.

Thanks! I did what I could with the available reference material - kinda missed a lot too.
Pretty much a compromise of what detail could be identified, and if the detail was too small to show up on the model.

Incredible! I have such a soft spot for that movie :)

Thanks! Cult classics, right? :D

Very nice!!! When you say "PVC" do you mean the plumbing stuff? And how do you shape those?

Great job!! I watched his movie as a kid and it will be saved in my memory forever :D. I really wanted that robot back then.
Few years ago I found Rocketbobs's thread Restored Robot Jox Achilles. He has the original puppets from the movie so he is a big source of reference material.
I want to model the full Achilles for 3D printing.

Thanks! Rocketbob's restoration thread was my primary reference for this build. Although, with all the information available, there doesn't seem to be any clear image of the bot's back/nape area (between the rocket boosters).

This guy's actually on its way to a full 3D model for printing too! :D

Yeah, the back area still reamins history...

Rocketbobs is making 3D model?
