this is awesome dude, I now use it as my test print as it's small, movable and just detailed enough!

would it be possible to do a version where the backs of the arms and legs are to the bed? that way it would not droop

I second this, because it leads to less-than optimal looks from behind.
Also the bridges cause problems with printers (or filaments) that have less-than-optimal bed adhesion because of the very small and delicate first layer fragments. Trying to fix that with a brim is not a real option for such a small structure.

I created a quick-and-dirty "V3" remix in TinkerCAD that adresses the bridging issue and also adds an articulated head!

@NirDobovizki , please feel free to integrate the V3 in your downloads list here and I will remove the remix if you like.

I had some problems with drooping filament on the back of the legs when printed without support (though possibly my settings), but a fantastic quirky 1 piece design that I very much like.

Very clever design, really fantastic that all joints are moving after some "break in".
Thanks for that, will post a picture of my small army of robots soon!
