Step 1: Make the Eye

We took the broken eye and a wood screw. We drilled a hole in the eye and another smaller hole into the plastic stump on the head.

As we were drilling the hole into the back of the eye we realized that if we drilled deep enough we would clear through the black "pupil" plastic and down to the clear cornea.

We used a solvent to clarify the inside of the drill hole, and after that the wood screw was visible through the eye (cooool, says the son).

Step 2: Cyborg Gekko

So then we screwed the new eye into the ocular stump.

Now the boy wants to know if there are other computer parts that we can attach to make it MORE BORG.

Yes, yes there are.

    It's bolted directly into the plastic optic nerve that originally held the bubble eye in place. Oh and this Borg doesn't kill, he assimilates; it is his purpose, it is why he upgraded, so that he can more effectively assimilate more stuffed animals.

    I updated to make it more clear I used a screw on the eye specifically so I could screw it back into the head.

    But how does it stay secured without killing?

    Granted, the borg isn't meant to NOT kill, but still...
