Robotki Robots has made its triumphant return to the Winter Garden Library in Winter Garden, Florida… for a second time. On display are refurbished toy robots as part of the library’s “steampunk” theme that were created using mash-ups from ThreeA toy robots. Most of the robots on display were refashioned out of existing vinyl robot parts and repainted to look like metal. If you are in Florida come see them in person. They should be on display for the remainder of May… perhaps in to June.

Look for more updates from the Robotki Robots Roadshow soon!

Robotki-Inspired Recycled Robots

“Yesterday and today, my grandchildren and I made robots, inspired by you! They wanted me to send you a picture. Ours aren’t done as well as yours. I can’t remember what kind of glue you used, but I’m sure it was better than ours, which was a mess. We had a great time! Thanks for the inspiration.”     – Christina Williams

Hand’s down, everyone’s favorite animal-based robot ever produced at Robotki Robots. The “Shark-tank” is actually a dixie-cup dispenser, a random tank toy chassis, an alcohol dispenser handle, and a factory-grade sewing machine table spring. Oh, and the teeth…. those are Blackberry keys!

This was a Robotki Robots version of the popular robot Tom Servo from the television series “Mystery Science Theatre 3000”.

Due to overwhelming critical discourse from fans of the original Tom Servo robot – this one has been modified and “spruced up” with a fabulous blue paint job befitting of a member of the  famous Tom Servo’s ilk.

These represent the latest crop of Robotki Robots that have come off the assembly line. Some have moved on to other homes… others have met with unfortunate mishaps which have resulted in newer robots. Still others are waiting for new homes and will be available soon though this website or various upcoming craft venues. Drop us a line to see what’s on the lot.

“Here Be Dragons Bookshoppe” located at 125 W Plant Street in downtown Winter Garden, Florida graciously feature several Robotki Robots in their store. They are open Mon 12pm-6:30pm; Tue-Thu 9:30am-6:30pm; Fri 9:30am-8pm; and Sat 10am-8pm. Come see their huge selection of used books and check out our robots!

Sadly, this poor young robot suffered a fatal accident only one month after her activation. She took a tumble off the shelf at Action Comics and broke her mainframe. Ironically, the robot was assembled from parts of a robot that suffered the same fate only a few months prior at the Oakland Heritage Festival. Parts of this robot were re–re-assembled into a brand new robot lamp. You can see it here.

Robotki were featured at the 13th Annual Oakland Heritage Festival on October 30, 2010. The annual festival is a family-oriented event with entertainment and activities for everyone. The event was a success as over 10 Robotki were adopted. Sadly, one robot (Eggbot) was destroyed when a gust of wind blew the unsuspecting automaton off the table. He was assimilated into another great robot however – Golden Spinner.

Below is a gallery of the even and the robots’ new owners. Thank you for all who supported Robotki during the event. We’ll see you next year!!!!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.’s Mobile Art Show Aug. 5, 2009 was an art gallery inside a U-Haul, moving around Orlando all day, pausing in various parking lots. The idea behind it was to bring spontaneous art shows to unexpected places, and to have fun and to raise money for the Orlando Improv Festival. Three Robotki were featured.
