Rock'em Sock'em Robots

An idea I've had for a long time is to re-do the classic 60's toy into a more realistic version by adding alien pilots and their cockpits to create a sci-fi chariot battle scene.  The robots are original toys with a few additions, mainly struts and cables inside the arms and of course the chariot set up.  I tried to stay with the retro rivet styling and even made the aliens' controlers to resemble the thumb button ones from the original game.  It's a fun piece and just shows how some things never die.
