The start of building Bert.

So. Many. Parts.

The feet and legs are finally done! As you can see, it's made with four servos.

And we're walking! Bert is taking his very first steps, I feel like a proud mama!

Bert rocking his wig.

He can finally see! Hurray!

Bert got a protective jacket and his feet were pimped. I removed his wig, as it made him lose balance and fall over...
