I finally did it. Yeah, it took a while, but… well… just look.
I made Legion, and he lights up. He even gives a wicked lens flare. Hehe.
Now, I realize that wiring an LED isn’t exactly high-tech electronics, but I’m so excited about how he turned out. The battery pack and wiring are hidden in the chest cavity. I’d highly recommend the awesome Make:Electronics book for anyone looking to learn basic skills (the first experiment is to lick a battery… definitely not a traditional textbook). I haven’t quite finished it but I’ll get there, once I’ve finished up some other WIPs.
But for now, more Legion pics, because there are few things more adorable than a fuzzy robot. I’ll post the pattern soon, just in case anyone else wants to make one too (not an easy pattern, unfortunately, but IMHO well worth the effort :)
