They have only sold the original T8...not the T8x. And I'm sure its only sold a few of them. I have my T8X on reserve. they are supposed to be starting the first shipments around Halloween. Still have not heard anything on them. They are really dragging their asses. It was suposed to be released in august...now pushed into November.

Aside from price, what is the difference between the t8 and t8x?
That iitsii looks pretty cool and affordable.

T8 had all 3D printed plastic parts and off the shelf Hitec servos. They were hand made. The T8X is injection molded plastic and supposedly, in house custom servos. I think the brain and the controller are the same, except the new controllers won't have XBee wireless module. Supposed to be going to a Wi-Fi control.

I have the T8X version preordered. I ordered it December of 2013...can't wait to get it!

I'd like to make the box that Adam Savage has on that youtube video. They said that they would have the plans online for it but I don't see them anywhere. Has anyone seen the plans?

EDIT: They recently added an option for the 'creepy hairy skin'. It looks pretty cool. I think it is a better finish on it than the smooth injection molded plastic. The T8 finish looks nicer but I couldn't justify spending $3,000 vs $575!

I found out about this a few weeks ago & I can't find anything posted online from anyone that has the T8, other than the mythbusters vid, plus heaps of media releases with the same basic info.

I can't believe that no one has even posted any pics or videos in hand of this awesome robot!

I want to order one (T8X), but I'd like to hear some thoughts from people that have the proto T8 at least.

Looks like a heap of them got shipped out but nobodies talking /:

I caved & ordered one. Spiders are super creepy and I love robots. Should be really cool to mess around with when it's too windy to fly.
