CNET.COM -- I had a link to this guy before; he was making his own 18-foot tall mech. He's got it to the point where it can stagger around and shoot fire from its fists. But he says it's got some fundamental flaws that would prevent it from being potentially useful in battle. He thinks he's learned enough to do it right, but he would need to start over from the ground up, versus trying to fix the first one. So, he's offering it on eBay. I feel a little bad for the guy. He seems earnest and not entirely geeky. And now he has to sell his baby.
