I compiled all of the heads I made this year for the Halloween 2012 season. I normally make some monsters or season related robotic creations this time of year, and thought I would share.
These heads were originally going to be a kit that I developed for Jameco Electronics kit club- They were intended to be 99 $ kits to be sold on the website, however, by the time they added in all the stuff-The price would have been much more, and they declined.
I was selling everything to them for the kit for 30$. They had to add another 24$(retail) in parts from their inventory, leaving the rest for their profit. I guess they wanted more profit, and repriced it all up to about 200$. I had produced molds for the head shells, and made several dozen kits up,Including custom circuit boards, ready to go………They will not go to waste-I will eventually use them for my own devices.Always a happy ending here for me.
Sorry for video shake-iness-I had way to much Mt Dew when I filmed it-And my new camera is VERY sensitive to that.
I used a couple on walking zombies and other stuff-Its on my youtube site if you want to gander at them. One I have entered into the current LMR Halloween contest.
Here is my youtube page:
