I think it looks excellent. The silver looks just right. You didn't waste your time building this guy did you!

I changed the software a few times. Depending on the version you have, when you first apply power, it will do a self test by blinking all the lights in sequence then go into the flashing routine. The other version jumps right into the flashing routine. Either way, it will always do the same thing when power is applied. Perhaps you are jiggling the battery connection a bit when snapping in the battery? Don't stare at the lights too long, they will hypnotize you!

The circuit uses a microprocessor to blink the lights so it is polarity sensitive. However, I placed reverse polarity protection in the 9V clip harness so it is ok if you get it wrong :biggrin: 

You can also run the board with higher voltages if you have to - There is a 5 volt regulator on the board. also, since the micro is socketed, I could program custom light sequences if you like. Think Night Rider, Cylons etc... just about anything you like!

 

I would love to see pics of the robot when it's done.

Hi guys -

I'm Mechalabs and I make this kit for Culttvman. There is no drilling, soldering  etc... required. It is a super simple plug in and apply power affair. Kennetzel's diagram is very close to perfect. The only difference is the pushbutton lights sit behind the clear plastic kit panel, other than that, it is dead on :biggrin:

 

Since almost everyone has a different plan for powering and turning on the lights, I defaulted to a long lead 9V battery clip (with reverse polarity protection). This way, builders could do what they like.

 

BTW - The next batch is shipping Monday (2/10) and Culttvman should have them before the end of the week.

 

If you have any questions, just please email me - this would be best for me and allow me respond the fastest.

 

Thanks for all the positive comments. I grew up watching LIS and the robot was the reason I started collecting vintage  robots in the first place.

Hi! I make the lighting kit posted by Laserman. I will have another batch ready in a week. I was told the first batch sold out in a matter of hours! I finally made something that's popular! I'm on vacation now and it's killing me not being able make more of these right now!!!! B9 has always been my favorite robot and I wanted to make a lighting kit that did him it justice. If anyone wants one, just email me, or visit culttvman. If you want different color lights or any type of customization, just let me know. I could program just about any lighting sequence you like. :biggrin:

 

Take care!

BTW - The kit comes with an alternet set of "tucked in" arms. The claws are hinged as well. The kit is very well done with nice detail.
