This Darth Jader is a modified JD. The plastic brackets were painted black and the head requires manual modification to fit the camera, RGB Eyes and neck servos. Get out your hot glue gun:)

mouth ledĀ 

another mod.i was thinking what if a servo burns out.when the head is glued you cant change the servo.
so i cutt out some more and now you can change the servo cause you can reach the wire seen here in blue line
also cut out behind the eyes so you can better make the space for the rgb.
Very cool Nomad, I wish I had a 3d printer it would save a lot of time when I can just make my parts instead of salvaging parts from old robots and any *strawberry* lying around or buying from the store.

hi robo rad

the possebility to open the head incase for repairing the camera orso.

Hey Nomad I will let you know if I ever need a special part to be made
. I always find what I need at my hardware store,electrical or even go to the plumbing section to look for special hoses or anything that I can modify to the robot.

ok the stl's are fully reddy to make the thing you have to do is to mod the rgb a little.
as seen in the pic vijl off some 2 mm off the word ez painting.also use only the HDD servo,
it you are using the talk servo.for painting you have to tape off the eyes out and inside off the head.
then primer and black paint.
