The Malevolent Head - Post 1

So, about 2 or 3 years ago I was poking around the interweb looking for robot parts and I came across some pictures of Kirby vacuum cleaners. One look and I knew immediately that this was a robot part par excellence. I found a cheap one on E bay and ordered it. When I got it I took it apart and then left it to gather dust until inspiration struck, well strike it did. I hauled it out 2 weeks ago and started to get going on it. Unlike most of my projects this will just be a head and shoulders. I picture it being mounted on a wall (kind of like an animal trophy). This weekend I was working on fitting some Plexiglas for the holes in the motor housing. One of my thoughts is to have some LED's inside for lighting effects. Here is what it looks like - if this doesn't scream evil robot to you - nothing will, stay tuned.
