Picture of Beware of the horrible pumpkin bots ....
These bots are all dangerous!
They came over me with full force. I did not expect them to be this powerful. Hopefully they all lose their energy very soon ... ;-)


Step 1: What you need

It helps a lot if you own many many things that you got out of old electronic devices. I used motors from old XBOX gamepads to make the robots shake ... and move. I used old motors from useless floppy disk drives to build a the crawler.
out of old pc mainboards I got battery holders and 3V button batteries. Also LEDs or resistors could be sourced out of old electronic parts.
To make the radio controlled mover I bought a bunch of radio controlled mini cars. I got 27Mhz and 40Mhz cars so that I can guide two robots at the same time.

Holla,

the "Räucherkerzen" on top of the pumpkin head are called "incense". The smoke of it is also called incense.

Thank's a lot! But try to DON'T buy the parts ... Nearly everything I used I got out of old electronic devices. As you can see in the description ... some motors are from a XBOX gamepad. The crawler's motors are from old 3,5 floppy disc drives. I think you should be able to find some without the need to pay anything.
The crawler is really easy to build ... but I think he is a little bit to brutal! He nearly broke my digicam!! :-)
lol i saw the digicam vid lol that was funny! enyway i think i'll buy them enyway because they need to be the same speed for maximum rideage plus i took apart everything i have that has a motor and used it ;( thanks for the cool instructable!!
