May I suggest an extension of your idea: "Mr. Boilerhead the Terminator". :-)

Sweet! It may not be brass or copper, but neither is a lot of what I see out there being called "steampunk". Swirls of hot glue painted with metallic colored paint comes to mind. Very creative work!

Its actually quite well known that automaton such as this were used in Ireland to protect the potato crops from pests. Scarecrows just don't do very much when it comes to moles after all. They would burrow into the ground, and if disturbed fire upon the trespasser. They were discontinued after a tragedy one fall, during harvest, when several failed to deactivate and numerous families were killed.

Pretty great hack but it's not brass... http://www.flickr.com/photos/saritamarianyc/sets/72157624366542441/ I thought that looked like dry brushing...

Some people have access to all the brass, don't they? :-)

That is quite frightening. I am now surely going to have nightmares in which I am frantically trying to escape the clutches of a be-monacled, mustashioed, mechanical potato.
