I am actually hoping to make some cosmetic improvements between visioncon and planet comiccon. Once I get the shoulder joint issue worked out the rest of the work is truly cosmetic (unless I choose to rebuild him using different materials).

Well I have had some set backs and some progress forward. To make a long story short T3's hard drive crashed. I turned his computer on Saturday morning and it just got that clunking noise that means drive failure.

I was able to get a new drive installed and I thankfully keep a backup of his program on my flash drive so I was able to restore his computer good as new. I was also able to get his shoulder hubs fixed. It is amazing what you can do with nuts, L Brackets, and JB Weld. It isn't pretty but it will eventually be covered with the shoulder bells once they are completed.


I still plan on taking him to VisionCon Friday.

With the problems I had at vision con with over heating on carpet I am revamping the electronic in T3 entirely. I'm also considering rebuilding his entire frame.
