"The Terminator" Reindeer

24 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

For the second year our office is having "Reindeer Races" at our Christmas party. Teams are given a paper mache reindeer to decorate and then we bet on them in a race determined by the throw of the dice. The reindeer then are judged for best design.

This is what we start off with.

This is what it looks like now after a trip to my mad labs.

He's called "The Terminator". He has color changing LEDs for the eyes, a blinking red LED for his nose (which always was off when I snapped a pic) and an LED spin toy for his "arc reactor".

Really great transformation Andy!!! Flashing LEDs, Spinning LED ball you've really gone electronic on this one! How big is it? It looks tiny in the "pre" picture and gigantic in the transformed picture.

Andy , considering the dopey mache reindeer you started with that's a way cool conversion. If you didn't win the decoration contest your co-employees are duds.

I'm guessing your co-workers will concede the contest the moment you unveil your entry; best reindeer ever!!

That's great!

But, I have to admit, that I never thought I'd hear the words "Terminator" and "Reindeer" in the same sentence. :P

What's going to become of Terminator after the party?

Good question, Chuck. Last year I did one called "Missile Toe" which had a jet pack and aviator's goggles, hat & scarf. I kept the jet pack but I set the reindeer free in the field behind my house. It's a pile of rotting paper mache now. ;)

I'm sure this one won't suffer the same fate since he is a lot more substantial. Hmmmmm......ebay? ;)

That seems the most logical idea.

Do you think he'll hold up to the transit abuse of the UPS/USPS goons?
