Petr H. has just finished his beautiful plexiglass Stubby build (at least enough to get it walking around).  There is still a lot of cleanup and stuff to do, but everything seems to be working.  To my knowledge, he is the first person to have completed their own version of Stubby (if someone else has completed their own version, I would love to hear about it).

He is controlling it with a Universal Controller, using two Bluetooth modules instead of XBees (a very good idea, as it keeps the cost down and allows for computer control without switching hardware).

His latest pictures are below, and he will hopefully be sharing a video in the not too distant future:
