Crown Fit For A King!
I've gone over the top here to make the ultimate B9 crown for my
robot! Meticulously researched to duplicate the look of perfection,
even detailing the riveted fins. This crown is made entirely out
of Stainless Steel - 38 parts in all. 12 Laser cut and hydraulic
press bent Stainless fins, a laser cut Stainless mounting disc,
a machined Stainless shaft collar, and even Stainless rivets with
Stainless mandrels! Carefully hand assembled, resulting in an 8
ounce piece of Stainless Steel art. No polishing was necessary!
When the pyramids have turned to dust, this crown will be still
be around, sparkling in the sunlight.
Price: $85 (kit)
sensors based upon Craig R.'s incredibly accurate masters. These
feature laser cut dishes and cast resin dish holders! Available
as a kit or finished.

The finishing touch to your robot! To give a brief history, the
power pack is actually a component of a piece of military equipment
that was used in the 60's. At the time, it was salvaged from the
equipment, modified it by adding 3 phono jacks, replaced some screws
and covered the electronics with clear plastic. I was able to secure
another original component identical to the one used on the show
and cast resin copies of the frame components. The circuitry was
then created using art work of the original. The printed circuit
board was professionally etched, tin plated, drilled and routed
to the specs of the original. Since the original power pack was
part of military equipment all the electronic components are, of
course, military grade. So, to be totally authentic I used actual
military grade electronics from that time period in the power pack.
The 2 different greenish colors that are on the various frame components
were computer color matched from the originals. The paint used is
a custom industrial mix. The finished piece is not only the most
accurate replica of the original power pack, but a work of art in
itself. Check out these pics and see the details! Much thanks
to Mike D. for his help in creating the power pack.
Power Pack Kit
kit contains the frame and end connectors, power pack electronics,
circuit board plus all hardware to build the most accurate B-9 power
pack replica ever made. Complete assembly instructions are included.
Claws & Wrists
3D CAD research went into making these the most accurate wrists
and claws yet made! The built in mechanism allows the centers to
rotate and the claws to move in sync. Requires very little finish
work before you paint.
perfect Microphone head for your torso. Available in resin.
Resin toro knob. This includes the tapped hole and set screw!
lightbox was designed to mount on the inside of the torso, behind
the front teeth lights. It is made of laser cut stainless steel,
slightly over 1/32" thick. The laser cut stainless steel was
precision press bent to make the final box.
of the box is curved to match the curve of the inside of the torso.
The inside of the box is a mirror finish, just like the finish on
my stainless steel crown. There are two pre-wired "twist lock"
style lamp bases in the back of the box to hold the light bulbs
in place. Since they are twist lock style, I never have to remove
the light box assembly to change a bulb! The mirror finish combined
with the two lights gives a nice even illumination to all 10 chest
