  6. milwaukeemachineman added a post in a topic: Resurrecting Alphadrome history/member origins   

    Joined back in April 06 when Botstock 3 was coming out and at that time the regulars were Henk, John, Pat, Joe, Doc, and Andy of course there was the European group plus the rest of some ol timers that talked up quite a bit about the old tin robots here and considered plastic kinda taboo so it was a delicate time on how and what one spoke of around here but, eventually everyone came around and due to the "Botstock" events and we got to know one another and became even better at relationships with one another.

    All in all it's been rather wonderful coming here and still getting to chat it up with fellow robot collectors and only wish more would contribute, also at some Botstock in the Future maybe a tribute to the founding fathers of Alphadrome, but that's just wishes down the road.

    So Thanks Brian for the Most Excellent Site Sir!
    All my Best,
    Mike VP,
    a.k.a. mmm

    Hey Roboz, Thanks for the picture of the Tremendous Mike Robot! it's the only "Mike" robot I've never had but always wanted....talk about disappointed dreams.

    If there were a room full of them at $1.99 you just know I'll only have $1.98 on me, Typical, Just Typical!!!

  10. milwaukeemachineman added a post in a topic: The grand kids test ride the fastest robot cart / robot rickshaw   

    I hope the grandkids were happy with the new toy Grandpa John made, as most kids seem to be embarrassed by anything we as parents or grandparents do.

    While most of us robot collectors love this kind of stuff our kids think of it as old and slow and would rather see a movie or play a game on their gaming systems, begs to question if we really do teach our kids the important things in life?

    In any case, John, you've done one heck of a fantastic job! Please continue to amaze us! and THANK YOU!!!

    mmm

    I'll probably need one for the next Botstock. But I really want to try it out in an urban setting to see what kind of comments it gets. Come on Man it would be so cool! Like "How come there's not more of these?"

    Great work as usual Mr. Rigg

    mmm

    All I know is that at least one of us (Alphadromers) should get that Tremendous Mike Robot! I need it before I die!

    My two cents....Vintage versus Repo? an argument that will go on for as long as there are collectors. It's a personal choice, each of us decides which pieces we want or do not want so it all comes down to our choice. Plain and Simple? Not always, one man's Gold is another's Trash.

    I for one am glad that at least there is a place like this in which to discuss matters such as these, so thank you all for the Input!

    mmm

    The only one that I would Have to Have is one of the actual toy props used in Short Circuit 2

    This would be a Dream Come True for me, as you all know I am the local Johnny 5 Nut.
