Tom Jozwiak is a crazed robot and sci-fi movie prop builder who’s built dozens of bots from Lost in Space, Star Wars, Buck Rogers, Short Circuit, Dr. Who, and more. He’s currently working on a life-size Gort (from the original The Day the Earth Stood Still) and Wall-E. Below is a link to his YouTube channel where he’s documented many of his builds.

[BTW: Tom was one of the Star Wars bot builders featured on the cover of MAKE, Volume 02 (he’s the geek on the left)]
