Introduction: ROB ZOMBIE!!!!

(ANNOUNCEMENT: Answering the public concern about the Atari joysticks, I declare the controls were damaged, broken and without any possible reparation, so I gift them a second life. So relax everyone! No living Atari joystick was killed in the process.)

Ready for another plastic junk idea? IT'S ROB ZOMBIE'S TIME!!!!

We will transform an old diskettes box, an older Atari Joystick and other plastic stuff into an ugly creepy zombie-style decorative figure. Its horrified eyes glow with yellow light, and its heart changes of light color, as heartbeats... And it's easy to build!! And if you get enough stuff, you can build your Rob Zombie Army!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

Well, as the Great Tallahassee says: "Time to nut up, or shut up!", and lets enjoy this little thing!!!

Step 1: Rob Zombie-land Rules...

Do you remember Zombieland Rules? Well, it's time to remember M.C. Langer building rules:

1. If you don't have it, replace it!
2. Use protective equipment (dust mask)
3. Beware of drilled and soldered hot surfaces
4. Work in a good ventilated area.
5. Always have junk in stock
6. Enjoy!

Congrats, really nice robot, I was thinking of doing something similar but instead of a joystick I am using 6 floppy disks to form a cube and a couple of plastic belts to make it look like a Wall E, great work , saludos

Muchas gracias Zapzapata. Por lo general no filmo videos del proceso, pero estoy haciendo instructivos de casi cada nuevo que saco. Mantente sintonizado!

Sorry, but I built it when a didn't know Instructables, so I didn't take any photo of the process. But maybe the next time. Thanks!
