    Has anyone tried to make a model of V.I.N.C.E.N.T from Disney's movie The Black Hole? It is one of my all time favorite SciFi robots. I tried to design one myself; but my designing skills are sadly lacking. I've found almost all of the models on my wish list EXCEPT this one.

    I remember seeing one of those somewhere. It was many years ago. I hope it hasn't fallen into the "Black Hole"!

    That would be nice too. Max was one creepy bot.

    Easy fix. Just build a Vincent model and give it to the cat for a minute or two.
    In a pinch, a dog or toddler could work too. hahaha

    On a more serious note, if anyone know where some decent references for these bots are, I will give them a go. They have been on my to-do list but very far down. Can't get high-res images or the most important: -schematics-anywhere...

    Oh man, now that is a difficult task. I've looked for good reference images for them and failed. Maybe someone else will have better luck? By the way, If you do design these models, I'm sure they will be fantastic. Your models are amazing!

    I'd build Max or the Cygnus. Even as a kid I thought Vincent was an R2D2 ripoff. But then again, Max has got the Darth vibe with cool "ginsue" attachments.

    I would like to build a Yvette Mimieux model, they did her hair really weird in that movie but in reality, they would have never made it to the black hole, or left!:p:twisted:

    Never did like this movie, even when I saw it at the theater, it was just about as draggy as TMP and the whole Disney sillyness just didn't work for me. Isn't this rated as one of the worst science fiction movies ever somewhere?

    Yes, it is not seen any more because it did in fact collapse on itself. It sucked half of Disney down with it. If you listen on a quiet night, you can still here the sucking sound it makes. Yvette Mimueax was the only thing worth while in the whole movie, and the volume could be turned down for that!

    I do not think it was "silly", as much as it was "inane", well, I guess it was pretty silly too. :)

    WOW! I'd hit that...I mean build that too.

    I agree whit both of your points. Even as a kid I thought the BH was pretty hard to swallow, especially the ending.

    Granted it could have been better, but it couldn't have been as bad as all that... could it??
