Album:San Francisco:2002-07-28 RockEm SockEm Robots

For Burning Man 2003, I built a lifesize version of Rock'Em Sock'Em Robots.

Hey, you knocked my block off!

This is an album of photos showing the construction over 2002 and 2003, as well as the redesigned heads for 2007. (Missing photos of arm rebuilds from 2006).
