EPISODE SYNOPSIS: We welcome Mr. Craig Reinbrecht to Alpha Control for an exclusive interview. Craig is the Leader of the B9 ROBOT BUILDERS CLUB, which is a fantastic hobby organization that has over 600 members who either HAVE or ARE building their very own Lost in Space Robot replica. Now we’re Not talking about a 12” inch model robot folks, although those are great, NO the B9 Robot Builders make studio quality full scale replicas of the original Lost in Space Robot that are absolutely stunning. The Club offers information & technical support to builders, links to Parts Vendors, as well as a forum where members can show off their B9. Many members of the Club take their B9’s on the road to conventions and other events, where the public has the opportunity to see these beautiful creations in person. All of this information is available on The Club’s fascinating website, which I’ll link to in the show notes. Even if you’re not ready to start working on your own B9 Robot project YET, there’s tons of great photos & reference material that any LIS fan would enjoy to peruse.

CRAIGS’ BIO: Craig lives in the Toledo, Ohio and when he’s not involved with his B9 Club activities, he works as a project manager for a major Information Technology company, (which I think is only appropriate). During the course of researching and building his own B9, as well as helping others in the Club, Craig has become an expert on the history & specifications of the original Lost in Space Robot.
