where did you get it from and how much did it cost ?
The one you see here I got from urban-collector.com and cost $132.99 + 14.60
for shipping and the second one that's due Thursday was a preorder from ScifiGenre.com and was $127.50 and shipping was free.

These are awesome. Keep us posted on your conversion. I think they made a FX version but can't recall if it was them or another shop.

While not a model, I'd be interested in your thoughts on this piece, it looks fantastic!

I thought if you pulled the left side head part out you could play the lights/sounds on all the 13" X-Plus Robby the Robots? Not just the one with the actor inside it.

I'd like to see how your mod of the X-Plus Robby goes. It should have more lights/sounds than the ones that come with it.

These have no electronics with them, must have been a different version. It will be some time before I get to these guys, too many other projects in front, and another just showed up, my 3D printer, sweet......:thumbsup:
I just bought my X-Plus Robby without figure inside over at Amazon.com and the description says; "Robby also includes lights and sounds from the movie, just as you remember!"

I'll be upset if they got the description wrong.

I think you're going to be upset because that sure looks like what I got and they have no electronics in them at all......

So on that circular part the texture on the ribbing was part of the file?
The outside of the part has a design that spirals down, the inside is very smooth, so yes it's part of the file. Also, there was a question about the PLA
filament, can you paint it, yes, will it breakdown if exposed to water, not that I can see. I put some of the filament in a cup of water last weekend and it's still like new, this stuff is just like ABS as far as I can tell.

Sorry to say that this one will not have the lights and sound, as they sold out a couple of years ago. The one with lights and sound had a 12 inch figure with the likeness of the actor who played him in the movie.

Perhaps a translation error? That's weird. Ha!

Stan at Starling tech and I are doing a modification to the Robbie Sound and light kit to fit this model(13" X plus) as we speak!

It's merely a matter of adding longer wire, thicker fiber optics and a larger voice tube.

I'll have the mods Stan needs by tonight.

That's awesome! I have a small Hallmark ornament that has a button making it light up and say about 5 quickie quotes, but it's not the REAL voice. Just an imitation.
