This has nothing to do with Star Wars or the MB, but I've been given a go to build an Iron Giant for the robot room at Starfest (it's this year's Starfest mascot). I'm thinking something light-weight, about 7-8 feet tall, in three section (head, body/arms, legs), static with glowing eyes (maybe the arms move if we have time). I have a toy of it that I'll be using as a template (recreating the toy).

If anyone wants to be part of the Iron Giant team please let me know. I need a whole lot of expert advice and lots of help on this one. I don't have much time, but it's something I've wanted to do for a long time anyway. I'll be starting to draw plans at Galaxyfest when I have time to work on it. I'm off Fridays/Saturdays to do this. Anyone want to help?

Thanks,
your ever-enthusiastic robot builder (what have I got myself into?)

You mean this guy? I might be down to help. Do you have a size in mind?

Yep, that guy. Maybe 7-8 feet or smaller. Certainly nothing life size (can't fit in the door if we do). Need to find light weight materials that doesn't cost a whole bunch. I'm considering dowel (or pipe) and holes to put the sections together. Haven't done much research yet, but will be coming up with a plan soon.
