Contest:
Robotic Revolution

*Beep* *Beep* Lawyerbot Appreciation day is coming up so we thought in celebration we would have you make robots! These should be entirely of Robot Neopets and they should be made of metal. They do not have to do anything, but it isn't much of a robot if it doesn't at least have lights. ;) Please tell us what your robot is of and how you made it in the description. We're judging the robot on how close it is to the original, ingenuity, and overall creativity.

First Place

Two winners receive the Random Contest avatar, 15,000 NP and an item of DOOM.


A Robot Grundo for Sloth
by saluqifreak13
A few days ago I received a message from Dr. Sloth himself, asking (or rather ordering) me to do him a favour. He said he wanted his Grundos to build him an army of robotic Grundo minions, but someone had stolen his supplies! So now he told me to build him a Robot Grundo with whatever I could find to steal back those supplies. Size wouldn't be an issue, he said, since he owns an enlargement ray... Who was I to disobay Sloth's orders? I got to work immediately.
I glued and screwed the metal housings of 4 tealights together to form the body. After cutting two holes for the eyes and a slot for the mouth, I glued some red fabric behind the eye holes. Then I built two legs for my robot: I glued together a metal ring (covered in red tape) and a black rubber ring for the leg itself and attached a foot out of tin foil. I painted its toes with green acrylic paint to make them look even more realistic. The robot's hands were crafted out of tin foil, the fingers bent to form a (fully functioning) fist. These hands were then attached to the body with a slice of black rubber tubing as an arm. On top of its head are two antennae. They're made of tinfoil, with a thin red tube glued around the top. Inbetween the two circles of green fabric at the end of each antenna is a small lightbulb. There is also a lightbulb inside the head - right between the eyes. These lightbulbs are powered by two AA batteries which are stored inside the body. They're connected using copper wires inside thin green plastic tubing for insulation. But every robot has an on/off switch! Mine has, too - at the back of its head you will see two wires sticking out. When you twist those together, the robot's eyes, mouth and antennae light up! If you want to switch the lights off, just untwist the wires again. But that switch only controls the lighting - how to control the entire robot, that's for me and Dr. Sloth to know and you to find out...
Materials: 4 tealight housings, copper wire, 2 AA batteries, thin plastic tubes (green and red), thick plastic tubing (black), tin foil, fabric (red and green), acrylic paint (green), sticky tape, red tape, metal rings, black rubber rings, glue, scissors. (I tried to use as much metal as possible, but some parts just required different materials)


Robotic Revolution
by wokitana
Material:
-5 X 50cl aluminium drink cans
-3 X 33cl aluminium drink cans
-210ml baked beans tin can
-400ml tomatoe tin can all washed thoroughly with soap and water
-paper
-glue (super glue, all purpose glue, silicone sealant)
-masking tape, duct tape
-nuts, old bathroom taps and iron fittings, 2 iron elbows
-2 X transparent plastic lids
-light blue kite paper
-2 tealight candles (aluminium holder only)
-3 LEDs light bulbs
-1 X 9v batterie
-2 core wire
-White and Black oil based paint

Building the Robot:
The larger tin can is used for the head, pierced for the wire to get through. Bottom side partially opened. Secured edges with pliers and duct tape. Paper was glued to it's sides to give it a more spherical effect and small trapezoid/rectangular shapes where cut from the aluminium cans and glued around the tin, side by side a bit overlapping, leaving place (bare paper) for ears and neck. The smaller tin can is used for the middle part and safely opened from both sides. Same proceedure as with head leaving out bare paper for the neck, arms and legs. Masking tape was used to seal together the alumium plates vertically, while the sealant was used longitudinal. Ears: paper, bathroom fitting, nuts, aluminium shaped into a cone secured with a nut edging. Arms: paper, nuts, elbows and aluminium can shaped into a claw glued together. Legs: paper and candle holders glued together. Face and middle part: kite paper, painted using pencil and black marker and plastic lid glued and sealed to tins. Tail: 2 aluminium cones glued to paper stuffings packed and sealed with masking tape and sealant. Edge of tail secured with a glued nut. Everywhere was sealed with sealant. Painting: 3 coatings using white paint, waiting for each coat to dry properly. Used black paint with the same proceedure for some parts.
I spent more than a 50 hours building this Robot and hope it is appreciated by everyone. Thank you.



Second Place

Three lucky people have 10,000 NP, the Random Contest avatar and an item whizzing their way.


Robot Eyrie
by decalis
Made with metal rods, Mecanos, rope, flashing LED lights, battery pack with switch and patience


The Aluminum Robot Quiggle
by fooshfuush
The basics things involved in making him were pop cans, aluminum foil, and light bulbs. As an addition, small gold nails were used as finger and toe tips.
He was made by cutting off the top and bottom of the cans, and then facing the inside of the cans outwards. All of the layers are held together on the inside with duct tape. His main body and parts of the arms and legs are made with the pop cans. Aluminum foil is used to give the arms and legs a little flexibility, as well as the hands and feet. Gold upholstery nails were used as finger and toe tips on each finger and toe. Lights bulbs were used as the eyes, held in place by the pop cans. Finally, he was spray painted black to match the color of the robot quiggle.


Scrap Metal Bori
by rivliex
Hey, look at this little-- er, nice robot Bori? Aww, he seems to be made from bits and pieces of random metal. Maybe his owner should take him to get polished and oiled...
First, I made a base from bendable copper wire and telephone wire (top left corner). From that, I was able to flesh out the body with gray clay. Then I attached bits and pieces of materials to the clay, such as: nuts, bolts, screws, light bulbs, chains, wires, coat zippers, pop tabs, and aluminum foil. I wanted to give it a kind of scrap metal look for a cute (or creepy, your choice really) element. And by the way, isnt my yard beautiful? ;D




Third Place

Lastly there were 5 runners-up who will each receive 5,000 NP and the Random Contest avatar.
