What they said.  This is SUPER!

Currently taking a hiatus from swapping.  Sad

Wow, thanks everyone.

So amazing! Congratulations. I've thought of making a Tom Servo a couple of times and always put it off because it would be such a big project. Yours turned out wonderfully. I love his little sculpy hands.

I second the request for a pattern.  Wink

I know you have, where do you think I got the idea to try and make it.  I'm a fan of blog and your little Cthulhu's. And yes, it was a big project but I owed the brother some back presents, heh.

To answer the questions:
Yes, I'm thinking about Crow but I need to think about how to do it some more.  I think pipe cleaners and dowels will be involved.

Yes, his arms do wiggle. It's what took me so long cause I wanted them to look just right.

As for the pattern...I really make things up as I go along and Servo is currently 4 states away with my parents on the way to my brother. So this is what I can remember.
I made it in five crocheted parts:  the top piece, the two shoulders, the neck, and the rest. 

The top is a flat circle up to I think 30 sc around and then I crocheted in the back loops only and went around twice more. 

The neck starts out the same but i go around quite a few more times and then it's stuffed and closed off at the bottom.

The body starts again the same just goes out to i think 42 sc and around again more times.  When it's big enough I swapped colors and crocheted in the front loops only one round and then increased normally outwards to 114 or so. I swapped colors to black and crocheted back loops 114 2 times and then front loops once and started decreasing but kept it flatter than a normal round amigurumi ball by decreasing every other stitch around once, then sc around once, and repeat until you reach the middle and then wind the yarn through the stitches and pull tight and knot to finish off.

The shoulder is done by crocheting a block of 4 rows of 8.  then start crocheting around the edges a few rows to make a box like form on three sides, then finish by connecting the pieces at the top. 
I glued the pieces to the globe using e6000 glue. We attempted to trim the nubbs of the globe off with rotary tool with a cutting disk.  The hands are sculpted using sculpty polymer clay.  I used the pipe cleaners and the tubbing to form a spot for them to be glued to later on.  After firing I glued the pipe cleaner to the hands, threaded it through the tubes and weaved it into the shoulder, than sewed the shoulders onto servo.  The rest is felt just glued on.

I hope that makes some sense. I really do most of my crochet on the fly.

This is GRAND.  Tom Servo would definitely be something I'd crochet for my brother too.  MST3K Rocks and THIS Rocks!  Bravo. Grin
