NOW AVAILABLE!

MikeJ-v2 Torso $950 (plus shipping & handling)


This is a second generation cast from the original stone molds and the most original and accurate torso that has ever been available to the club! Thanks to Master Robot Builder, Mike Joyce these torsos are crisp, clean and true to the original Hero Robot. Manufactured by a premier fiberglass shop that specializes in Corvette parts, these are also the highest quality hand-laid fiberglass robot parts ever offered. A high quality casting means these parts will take a minimum amount of work to finish up. A very uniform thickness will also make mounting the detailed torso parts much easier.

Introducing I_B9!
Interactive Phrases and Voice Software for your B9 Replica.

- Members Only Price -

Member Price $89 New Lower Price! (PayPal preferred)

Have you ever wished your robot could respond to questions, initiate conversations, and snap off witty one-liners to your friends and admirers of your Robot Replica? And do it in the Robot's original and distinctive voice?  Well now you can!  Everything you always wished your robot could say in an interactive situation, and more!

I_B9 (Interactive B9) consists of a huge Library of over 400 newly recorded custom phrases by Dick Tufeld (original voice of the Lost in Space Robot), along with a really slick Windows based software program that makes selecting and playing the phrases quick and easy.  However, I_B9 is much more powerful than just that!

I_B9 gives you the power to combine phrases to create your own, organizes the phrases into "Phrase Groups" and easily gives you the ability to create different "Libraries" that are tailored to different occasions.  I_B9 plays the robot's background sounds on one track, and the voice tracks on the other, or you can choose any other sound or music file to play on the 2nd track.  You can create scripted dialogue, or with the click of your mouse put the software into "Automatic Mode" to play phrases randomly when you don't want to manually control what your robot is saying.  You can even have the robot say the current time and date, or add this function into any other defined phrase.

The beauty of I_B9 is that you can use it right out of the box "as is" with the Master Library, or you can do as much or as little customization as you desire.  I_B9 gives you the creative opportunity to make it your second favorite hobby!

What if you already have some custom lines recorded by Dick Tufeld?  Great!  You can easily add those into I_B9!

As a bonus feature to your purchase of I_B9, you will be invited to join the I_B9Talk list, which will be solely dedicated to help and advise on using this amazing software package.

System Requirements: PC or Laptop running Windows 98, ME, 2000, XP, Windows 7, or Windows 8 (Comparability Mode - Win98).  However, Mac users can still utilize the .mp3 files to take advantage of the huge Library of custom interactive phrases.

I_B9 comes on CDROM and installs quickly and easily, taking up only about 11Mb of disk space.  Connection to your robot is easy.  Simply connect your speaker out from your PC or laptop to your robot sound system, exactly the same way a portable CD player is connected.

Acrylic Rod
Torso Vents

Non-member Price $185

Member Price
$170

Full set of 4 authentic style, hand bent Vents.  These are the highest quality, and all the pieces are solvent welded together under pressure making them very sturdy.  Please notice how the vents are constructed with the ends of the vent ribs welded to the upper and lower cross braces.  Because of this construction all my vents will work with the Curved Channel Rails that I make (see below) to create a very nice sliding vent system.  I can sell the front vent only for $40 (Non members: $45).  All the vents come standard as non-frosted, but frosting is available for $15 upon request.

Note: The Laser Cut Frosted Vents are no longer available due to process problems.

 

 


vTimK Style Acrylic Rod
Torso Vents

Non-member Price $185

Member Price
$170

These vents were developed specifically to fit the TimK torso sold by Michael Joyce. What isn't obvious at first glance when looking at the lower dome of the TimK torso is that it is not an even radius curve. It is actually a compound curve. A standard even radius vent can fit OK, but my new TimK Style Vents were designed to fit perfectly.

    

These vents do not come frosted, but here is how they look with the backside frosted:

 

The TimK Style Vents still fit my Curved Channel rails, AND my Programming Bay (See below), and are also made with the same quality and craftsmanship as my standard vents. And the best news of all, they are the same price as my standard vents!

 

 

 


Aluminum Vent Screening

Non-member Price $24

Member Price
$20

A set of three pieces of expanded aluminum screening for the side and rear vents, as seen in the original robot (2nd/3rd season).  Each piece is 9.5" x 7.5" which is large enough to cover the inside of any vent opening on any torso.  The expanded aluminum is very sturdy, but it can be bent by hand into a curve to fit nicely behind your vents.  Please note, prices listed are for a set of THREE pieces.

Programming Bay "KIT"
NEW!  Laser Cut Stainless Steel

Non-member Price $45

Member Price
$42

Introducing the new Laser Cut Stainless Steel Programming Bay Kit!  These panels use a tab and slot design and are easy to bend and assemble.  The SSPB Kit comes with the bottom lip and top two attachment tabs already pre bent, and the rest you can be bent by hand.

Improved Design: This version of the Programming Bay incorporates some nifty new design changes to make attaching the lower aluminum channel much easier than previous versions.  In fact, if you buy a set of Curved Channel Rails (see details below), the attachment holes and hardware will be included for FREE!

The Beauty of Stainless Steel: You don’t even need to paint it! Leave the natural finish for a great look to your Programming Bay.
As with my previous versions, this Stainless Steel Programming Bay is based on my Programming Panel Diagram on the club web site.

12 Row Neon

Non-member Price $270

Member Price
$245 (New Lower Price!)

The very highest quality and most authentic looking neon set available. My design uses 10mm tubing instead of 8mm, and has 12 rows of neon (plus the two loops at the top) instead of 11 like most other neon being sold. The top portion is also curved to fit the torso for a nice flush fit. I use a very complex 4 piece interlocking design, but I glue the two upper and two lower halves together for easy installation. This also makes it MUCH less fragile than standard neon.  These are built to order and there will probably be a 3 to 6 week wait.
Neon-1 Neon-2 Neon-3 Neon-4

NOTE: I recommend the use of the Tech 22 music interface and 8KV neon Transformer. See my Tech 22 wiring article.

Laser Engraved Acrylic Chest Button Kit
( only available in kit form )

In Stock Now!

Non-member Price $35 (Kit)

Member Price
$30 (Kit)

These are the matching colored acrylic buttons for the Laser Cut Anodized Aluminum bezel in a kit form.  I created the font myself to match the original buttons exactly.  The button tops are made with transparent colored acrylic, which gives the buttons very vivid colors. The backing pieces are made from translucent white to diffuse the light from behind.
The kit requires that you glue (solvent weld, E6000 or Goop) the colored button to the translucent white backing piece, and then paint the engraved text black with acrylic paint available at any craft store.

New! Also available at the same price (while supplies last) are CLEAR buttons for that 1st Season look! The button tops are made with transparent clear acrylic, just like the First Season Robot. The backing pieces are made from translucent white to diffuse the light from behind.

Clear Acrylic Button Backer

Non-member Price $21

Member Price
$18

This is a curved clear acrylic backer used to hold the chest buttons firmly in place. It will work great with my Laser Cut Aluminum Bezel and Buttons, and it should also work great with other bezels and buttons. The Button Backer is designed to install on the inside of the torso, and the pre drilled mounting holes making it a snap to install with my Laser Cut Bezel (other bezels may require drilling). The Acrylic Button Backer will also work great in conjunction with Bill K's Stainless Steel Light Box.

Alternate Flashing
Chest Light Controller

Non-member Price $28

Member Price
$25

A 12 Volt assembly that will alternately flash the two large chest lights. This was a detail seen on the robot early in the series, and adds a very cool and mechanical rhythm to the look of the robot. It comes with an adjustment pot to vary the flashing speed, and two pre wired sockets with bulbs. You can use these sockets (recommended) or re attach the wires to your own sockets. Hook up is easy, attach the red wire to +12 Volts(DC), the black wire to ground, and you are done!
