So i just began gathering parts for my first robot. I purchased a mannequin torso to use as the body. there will be a pc mounted inside the torso with a 7" lcd touch screen on it's back. I'm planning on using one of the robotics platforms from zagros for the base and i'm trying to track down an Omnibot 2000 for his head.
I've been looking on Ebay but the full omnibot 2000's that keep coming up for sale are way out of my price range.. (can't rationalize $100 for a half broken one plus shipping when i'm just planning on using the head/neck). Considering how many people on here have been modding these and using them in their projects I was wondering if anyone potentially wanted to sell a head? I'd love to buy just the head/neck assembly that way i don't have to mutilate an antique or spend excess money and have a thousand parts i don't want or need.
I was also wondering if anyone has considered 3d scanning the head and reproducing it in a 3d printer? these omnibots i'm sure are becoming more scarce and will continue increasing in value.. maybe some cheaper 3d printed replica heads would be something to consider.
Anyway let me know if anyone would like to sell me one!
