In kindergarten I remember explaining that "I wanted to be a robot builder and do art on the side." Yep, my whole life was squared away by recess.

Later I learned that I didn't have the desire to be an engineer and learn all sorts of complicated math and science. I didn't even like doing my times tables so why would I want to do it for a living? Still love robots though, so it looks like I'm livin' plan B - which was really plan A all along anyway.

Bonus points if you recall the toy robot my drawing is loosely based off of. It's an oldie I had when I was a tot and earlier versions existed as far back as the 60s.

I don't remember his name - I just remember Mr. Machine or something like that. He was red and I think you could see some working gears. He might have been something you put together - but I never had enough info on this guy. He looks great in this drawing you did - just pound all those extra pieces in with a hammer.

Very cool, for a long time I wanted to do this too, just like my father, but then in those teen years I just had to break away and do my own thing. :)

Thanks much guys!

"Perfectly rough" is what I was actually going for so thanks again Kev. It took longer than I thought. So many decisions and I couldn't fall back on the precision of Flash for this one. Fun stuff all around.

Forget about connecting that other arm, Bob. I've got one word for ya: CHAINSAW.

Appealing stuff, as always.

That bolt doesnt look like it goes there Bob, so you can stop even just thinking about it...
Try the smaller one on the right...
