These are replicas of the two most prominent Robots in Mystery Science Theater 3000. The show was recently brought up, very briefly, in the latest Brickfeed live episode when the cast was looking at the first 10 LEGO Ideas project to get accepted for review. It happens to be my favorite TV show of all time, so I thought it show you these nearly 100% screen accurate, completely full size replicas of the original puppets. They were made with the same parts as them too, except the rarer parts were cast from molds of the original parts, and they have the same features, like moving mouths or eyes and such.
The red one is Tom Servo and the gold one is Crow T. Robot. Tom is made out of a 1980s Carousel snack dispenser (original horizontal seam design), a Money Lover’s Barrel, black vacuum formed Tyco trains, a big white boo bowl, hands from a C Man Bunz doll and weird metal slinky-like springs for the arms. And a lot of Ruby Red Metal Flake paint, and some silver.
Crow is made of a bowling pin, Tupperware floral, Tupperware vases, pinballs for eyes and the cast net from a rare LX Cooper American football helmet.
I might go back and edit this if I find out I made a mistake in naming products and such. Hope you guys enjoy the photos, and also check out the show. The new season is good too, especially the second episode “Cry Wilderness”.
