Looking for the Perfect Robot!

The task at hand is to find the perfect robot 3' to 4' high, with humanoid features or an R2D2 type look. I first start to scour the usual prop houses, with little luck.  Some are too big, some too small and toy like and licensing is a problem as well, if the robot is specific to a particular movie.

Where do robots hang out?

I started to look for robotic clubs.  This resulted in "liking" on Facebook robotic clubs and "meet-ups".  It seemed as if I was emailing robots in the sky.  But within a day robots starting rolling in across my inbox.  The robot builders were kind enough to send pictures and sizes.

Each owner was looking for a little piece of Hollywood for their robot.  A robotic cattle call was in the making!
