The Black Hole Maximillian - Anyone ever see a production Robot? I’m trying to do Research on this Robot

That listing seems to have additional details for what the articulated model was created for.

I'm not sure if these are any help or not. I took the photos of the full size Max at an attraction they had at Disney MGM in 1992, note the control cables.

I don't recall where the articulated model photos came from or the location of the model (tableware in the background in one shot)
