How to Upgrade a Cyclops Boglin with a Hallowing M4 #Boglin #Cyclops #Mod @adafruit

While the MONSTER M4SK may fit perfectly inside a “normal” Boglin, the Hallowing M4 Express goes eye for eye with this Cyclops Boglin.

Following the direction of one great guide, the Boglin MONSTER M4SK Mod, I was able to upgrade this one-eyed boglin to epically creepy dimensions.

Check out some pics from the build:

First I had to remove the built-in eye-ball which came out with a bit of poking, prodding and peeling away at the latex. Having a hobby knife helps but please be careful if you use one!

Next, I attached a glass lens to a Hallowing M4 Express with the lens holder kit.

Then I prepared a special usb cable with a down bend so that the usb port can be extended through the tail without damaging the cable’s connection or causing a disruption to the Boglin facial structure.

All powered by a 3.7v 500mAh Lipo battery.


Had to take some skin away from eye lids to make the eye more flush with the face.

To attach the Hallowing I used John Park’s zip tie method.

There you have it, one spooky Cyclops Boglin!
