The robot is the center of an elaborate Jackson-inspired Vegas show, according to Andre Van Pier, the robot's designer. The show would feature the giant metal pop star striding around the desert. If built, the robotic Jacko would be visible to guests as they land in the casino capital. Luckman Van Pier, Andre's business partner said, "It [the robot] would be in the desert sands. Laser beams would shoot out of it so it would be the first thing people flying in would see."
Luckman Van Pier claims blueprints have been drawn up for the show and seen by the star. "Michael's looked at the sketches and likes them," he told the New York Daily News.
