Andy Shaw's Collection.

I've spent some time developing the control system of the life sized radio controlled Planet Robot and the brief was that this one had to interactively talk and turn it's head dome while flashing the voice light with every syllable! Tall order, the demands on the power supply and added weight high up in the robot during walking was a difficult problem to solve.

The result has astounded me, and I designed/built the machine...

Well it's been quite a while since I last posted anything and yet there have been changes in my collection. The collection of toy robots is now in a much smaller room although I've built a large room for some of my model cars and two real cars. There has been progress on the Zeroid Zintar too so here are some photo's...

What a great collection and the life size Zeroid is a real stand out.

Andy haven't spoken to you in years. I love the lifesize Zeroid.

I bought one of your lifesize Planet robots. We moved to Hastings and his mech Bros I transit, so now he is static and lives outside. Given him a great position near the pond.😊

Hi matey, I remember your visit very well. The robot looks great there although I can fix him if you want. They do look fantastic outside don't they. Glad you like the Zeroid, I probably started him the year after you bought your Planet Robot.

Andy, your collection is simply superb and your life-size stuff beyond incredible.  Always a joy to see your work/collection.
