Flotsom and Jetsom - BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED

THIS PAGE HAS BEEN UPDATED CLICK THIS TEXT!  Welcome to the JETSOM and FLOTSOM webpage!  The cute brother and sister to 'Little Guy' seen in BATTERIES NOT INCLUDED!

I grew up with this film and here you see recreations (studio scale, lifesized!) of these loveable little robots.


This section is a bit difficult to navigate.  CLICK ME to find WHEEMS



 


 

This is the base that was created for these baby robots.  The are cast in durable designer resin and measure 5"X5".  They are cast with a block cavity designed to store a battery pack & wiring if you plan on installing LEDs.

Here's how they were created: (special thanks to Monica Mireles for helping on this project!)

These parts were received in very poor condition.  Though they are from film-used components, they were poorly cast and warped and in general miserable condition, with all the shells being separated into sections.So it was basically a game of 'let's figure out how to put this puzzle together!'.  Many parts needed to be scratch-built and all of the shells needed shaping modifications.


 

 Very slowly and with no small amount of patience, the parts starting coming together over the months.

  

I even 3d modeled some of the missing parts, 3d printed them, and completed the shapes with traditional modeling techniques:

Parts almost ready for molding:

The little tasks for fully restoring these robots seemed endless.  But now you can enjoy the final results of this year-long restoration project!
