Grumpy: Robot with some personality

without comments

[Thanks to jovel from the forums for submitting this!]

This is my power functions robot named Grumpy.
Like other robots he has some basic functions like:

  • Driving back-/forward
  • Turning
  • Lower and raise his arms
  • Open and close his claw to pick things up

But that wasn’t enough for me. I wanted him to have some personality. To do that I added some head movements. He can shake his head left/right and move his neck back- and forward. While driving he always looks in the direction he’s going. He can also move his eyebrows up and down.
