The A-Team Egg ist an Easteregg that plays the title melody of the A-Team each time you shake it. I made it as an easter present for my brother who is a big fan of The A-Team. But if you dont like the A-Team, you can change the melody and decoration to make it a fan-egg of your sisters favorite rock band. It can easily be reprogrammed and customized.

Get over to Step 1 to start making it! Dont forget to comment and rate this project.

I had to miss a couple episodes when I went running. And I missed one while I was taking a shower but that's Ok because it had Boy George in it. And instant Netflix doesn't have the last episode
I LOVE THE A-TEAM!!! I've watched almost every episode!
I'd pity the fool!
"I aint' gettin' on that plane!"
I cant tell which is more baddass, that Egg or Mr T himself?
Nice! This will let me use up some AAA battery holders (I accidentally ordered AAA's on fleabay. This might also allow for using a smaller egg shell..)
EGGcellent! :D You should make a Mr. T stencil so you can use spray paint and paint Mr. T on all the eggs! :D
Yes, I had the Idea of making a stencil, but I had not enough time for it
Excellent! :) "Yo Fool!!!" :P
