Cyclops robot

Prev Next

...or The Red Eye!? This mechanical menace is manufactured from a super heavy-duty Navy battery powered lantern. His arms are grab-handles off a 50's 5th wheel trailer. I re-fitted the lense and bulb with a vintage electronic gauge. His bodacious legs are a combination of stainless test tube, solid gears(?) cannibalized from a cars rear differential( ...like anyone really cares!) and a set of steel spring. 18" tall

    I think many of your fans care! It's the little bits you put together to create these pieces of art that, in part, make them so unique and interesting.

    He looks ready to scout into atomically unsafe areas and report back on levels of radioactivity.

    Ha! I do care. I dig reading your details because as I see the thumbnails, I'm already trying to figure out where the various parts come from.
