Grrrobot! Now with YouTube video!

Check out the YouTube video showing how I developed the Grrrobot model and revealing how the clever mechanism works.

Grrrobot is a fabulous model for you to download, print out and make.

Press down on the Grrrobot model's head and he raises his arms in a fierce gesture as if thinking, "I will destroy you all!"

Release the model and his arms return to their position using a GFPS (Gravity Field Power Source) – actually some coins in a tube.

The mechanism is fun and the model is fearsome. What more could you want! Hurry along to the website and grab yourself a copy now.
