This is very cool.  It conjures up images of Bubo from Clash of the Titans:

Hello ElectronicGenious,

Nice work, your painted bots are very attractive.

Here is a little special effects clip of the epic robot battle between K-9 and the Polyphase Avitron robot parrot.

Timeless stuff, as enjoyable now as it was thirty-five years ago:

Cheers
