Because 50 life sized anamatronic ones are being auctioned off.
I’m looking at you Test Labs.

I think my brother was at a company that was building those in the 1980s.

I am sure he is better at welding today...

They used pneumatic cylinders. The always seemed a bit bouncy to me. I bet with some modern robotics upgrades they could be made to rock like a hurricane.

My robotic goal is just to make a doll that sits on the shelf in the tile bar and its eyes follow one person, all night long.

Give everyone who enters a pin, and one a night has its IR emitter turned on, thus the following eyes. *gasp* I've said too much!

If that was closer, and the border was open, I might have tried to buy a few for the local science museum.
