Okay, so was wondering if anyone had any info on this. Check out www.robots-dreams.com the Robot Carnival, there is a grey robot Futaba based - using what looks like many RBT-1 plastic parts. Anyway was wondering if that was a home built? Curious if anyone knows any details about it.

Basically, it's a HPI G-Robot, identical to the RBT-1.

The one in the picture has a much cooler head IMO... The default one looks goofy...

They also modified the Arm configuration. If you look at the RBT-1 or the G-Robot the arms move forward / backward like doing a curl, this one has been modified so they swing in/out from the body. Looks a bit more streamlined with the chest plate from removed and the Head is cool, do they have the leds connected in the head behind the eyes. Cannot tell from the picture
