(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!!!
