We actually made a few of these way
back last year but forgot to post them. Uubergeek came to the lab
with a handful of these and asked if we could make the cyclotron light
up. Well, of course!
I've been meaning to make this specimen
for quite a while so entering it into a Halloween contest seemed to get
me fired up to make it. As usual, the battery and ON/Off switch
for the pumpkin head light are located in the minifig torso, but this
time, I added some wiring inside the neck of a skeletal horse to light
up its eyes too.
Minifig Cylon Version 3
This is the latest release of the
Cylon minifig made exclusively for the DVICE, SCIFI.COM and MAKE 'Make a
Cylon' contest. This newest version features a smaller circuit board
with 6 LEDs instead of 4. I don't think I could hand solder anything
tinier than these new LEDs. These things are almost TOO small to handle!
As all other Brickmodder Labs minifig mods, this one features a replaceable
battery and an internal ON/OFF switch. Minifig electronics by Rob
Hendrix (Brickmodder). Helmet, decals, and paint done by Mark Marquez.
Microchip programming done by Stuart Guarnieri.
I am Ironman!
Thanks to the artistic talents of
Chris "Uubergeek" and Jared "Kaminoan" I am the
proud owner of a custom Ironman. I couldn't stop there
though! Click for photos of the full vignette. Enjoy!
Thanks to Mark Marquez for his
minifig sculpting talents and to Stuart Guarnieri for his uncanny
programming skills, I now have reached the next level and present to you
a minifig Cylon from Battlestar Galactica complete with onboard lighting
R2-D2 2007a (Revision 4)
You asked for it, you got
it. Took long enough, but I finally got around to moving that
pesky switch to a different location. I was never happy with the
original location for playability. Now all you have to remove the
head for is to change out the battery!
