I'll take one of whatever's available! These are awesome and I've always wanted to add one to my collection. GREAT JOB Brady -- thanks for tracking this down and making it available to us!

Unknown doesn't always equal must-own, and at that price I'm quite comfortable letting these go. Not enough there for me to get excited about.


Bill, don't let calcium deposits turn you off if the price is right and the gun isn't common (and it's a piece you really want). Sometimes -- SOMETIMES -- the stuff you use to clean calcium off a pipe can flush out the water pistols. Doesn't always work, but I know some people have had some luck in the past. I've never tried it myself so I can't speak from first-hand experience.

I'm still looking for an original dome for my Domed Easel Back. I figured it'd be impossible, but over the years I've seen three beater robots -- all with great domes! The first I lost to DIRK -- grrrrr... ha ha... -- and the other two went for more than I wanted to spend at the time. But if that super-thin, delicate dome can survive, I believe ANYTHING can survive. Just keep searching, the part you're missing might pop up one day. :)

In Topic: Botstock XI: Poster Contest

Ladies and Gentlemen, with all votes tallied and all results verified by 16 different independent auditors (including my cat), I present the winner of this year's Botstock Poster Contest: ACTION ROBOT!




As the creator of the official poster for Bostock XI, you'll now have to whip up a batch to give out at the event. In the past, posters have ranged in size, so feel free to get them printed however you like. Often the posters are given out for free, but as I've mentioned, sometimes they're sold for a modest fee to help cover the cost of printing. Either one is fine -- this shouldn't cause anyone any financial hardship!


Please check the attendance list to see how many posters need printing. Traditionally, extras are made to send to Brian Hayes and John Rigg (if he's not attending this year). You might also want to print up some extras for Alphadrome members who can't attend but could want to buy one off you. 


Give me a shout if you've got any questions. Once again, congrats!

I guess we're voting, then...

I'll toss my vote in for psychedelia, then.

But I still think they're both nice.
