Number Five Toy Prop Restoration

We had the neat opportunity to restore an original Number Five toy prop as seen in the movie Short Circuit 2. At some point (perhaps even decades ago), the robot’s wrists had broken off, one of the forearms had snapped, and the upper half of his neck and his eyelids had gone missing.

The restoration was done with help from Andrew Friedberg of the fan builders group Input Inc., who created CAD models for the missing bits that were then 3D printed. The final work involved repairing the damaged sections, moulding and casting a replacement forearm, integrating the 3D printed parts, and subtle paint touch-ups.
