The robot in the main photo is a totally original design. It wasn't on purpose, but now that it's done, it reminds me of a distant cousin to the robot from Futurama.
The remaining robots were based on some truly awesome designs I found in a Google image search. The picture is here. To whoever did these original, I have to say: these are some of the most creative and original figures in this scale+genre that I've seen in a while. They are just wonderful!
I was initially trying to match these exactly but (as always) was limited by the pieces/colors I had available. And then once they get going they take on a life of there own.
I love the robots from old sci-fi movies. Other models we've made that are not online include Gort from "The Day the Earth Stood Still" and "V.I.N.C.E.N.T" from "The Black Hole".

To Jonathan -- I'm glad someone actually likes the "wierd arms". The robots are supposed to look like the ones from the old sci-fi movies from the 1950's. Those robots had pretty weird arms themselves.
