I was hired to build this Woody’s Roundup radio that is seen briefly in Toy Story 2. This was a ton of fun to capture the look of some of the old school materials including Bakelite knobs, chrome Woody medallion, and vintage speaker fabric. Of course I made a second one to keep. He’s the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the Wild West!

I love it!

I like your solution for the front plate but what do you think the material was meant to be in the film? It almost has a metal or even a mother of pearl quality to it. Hard to pin down.

Seeing how this was a cartoon, I would say the only way is to idealize it. This came out great and if it were a kit, I'd buy one

I strared at that for a good long time. I believe it was intended to be a thin embosses metal, like aluminum. In the end, for the budget I was not going to be able to pull that so. So, I've seen other children's products like this with printed graphic panels so it seemed like an authentic approach.

I did, interestingly, find the original 1950s Hopalong Cassidy radio that inspired the Pixar designers!

Did you know about the existence of the Hopalong Cassidy radio beforehand, or did you just happen upon it during your research?

Hey! I know this is old by now but would you make another one and how much would it cost me? I’ve been looking for one for a while!!

Hi Valor, may I say how incredible these merch of Woody's Round Up! I'm so thrilled to see your designs, they're all outstanding, even my baby brother loves 'em all. May I ask where I can purchase the boot and the one with the bubble?
