Welp. Someone else purchased the Baby Bot 56 from Moon Armada on Etsy. I knew I shouldn’t have waited to buy it. I didn’t want to go find my wallet at the time. When I do little errands like that, it’s rare when I return promptly. I usually get distracted for a while. (I blame the pets.)
I emailed the shop owner a bit ago and asked if he plans on selling more. I also asked if he can recycle some of my designer vinyl toys into synthesizers. I took photos of the first that looked viable.
I have several more figures I’m willing to sacrifice for the music. The little blue one is a Munny. I have an 18″ version that glows in the dark, (but I don’t know if I’m cool about cutting it.) The Ralph Wiggum (The Simpsons) figure is a favorite, but I’d like him more as an Atari Punk Synthesizer with CV inputs, and color changing LED eyes.
I envision Domo (upper right) with the color changing eyes, and motion detectors in the shape of an afro for a theremin type synthesizer. I forgot the name of the taller blue and white toy. It’s like a creepy Mickey Mouse, kind of. He could do with a matrix mixer out of his feet and a head synthesizer. I’m not at all attached to it, so I may experiment with it myself.
I’m glad someone else thought the Baby Bot 56 is fabulous. I hope the store owner continues to make more. If he can make them out of Funko Pop! Bobblehead toys (hollow heads), I’ll be ecstatic. I have SWTFA Luke, two different General Leia Organa, Han Solo, Rey, and Finn. 😆
One of them will need to be a sampler so I can load up Seinfeld and Friends bytes. I was already in love with synthesizers. Now we’re going steady. Heh. I decided I’m going to name posts on this blog after Friends quotes, starting with this post. I’m off to imagine what else would make an incredible synthesizer.
