Klingon Power Leech / Photon Collector Build


#141

Holy cow! That’s so freakin’ awesome, Scott :smile: They look great!


#142

That’s the best prop build I’ve seen in some time.


#143

Yeah, why not?

I’ve got to get used to the one handed video stuff. I could put it on a tripod and use two hands but I wanted to do the fly by. :japanese_ogre:


#144

Wow. Just friggin wow.


#145

That is sooo awesome!


#146

Great Scott that’s good


#147

Wow! :heart_eyes_cat:


#148

The fleet.


#149

And to finish the build documentary…

A tad of Dremel cutting before install of the electronics.

The diffusing plastic hot glued in. I put another layer in under the yellow LED because it’s too close to the sheet for one layer to work.

The some strip styrene gets hot glued onto the pink and yellow LEDs which are then glued into place.

Things are then buttoned up. I want to add some sort of paper so that batteries don’t look like, well, batteries.

#152

Haha, that video with all of them is both beautiful and annoying!


#153

So I just got back from a Sci-Fi convention here in town. One of the guests was Walter Koenig. I had him autograph one of Scott’s beautiful Photon Collector props! Hee! Hee! Walter didn’t recognize the prop at first but after I turned on the lights, he said “Oh yes! I remember this!” It was very cool!:grin:


#154

Very cool! Thanks for sharing.


#155

That is cool!


#156

That is Awesome.
Thanks for sharing.


#157

Thanks guys! That other picture on his table was of me inside a Lost In Space Robot costume (I’m a member of that builders club) and Walter randomly showed up in our room because he liked our robots! I got to pose for pictures with him and he was so fun! He signed that picture also. Walter was very nice. A bit quiet but very nice to all of us.


#158

This was an incredible build, read every line, I see that this thread is from several years ago. Scott do you have any of these kits left? Are you able to share the components schema and code for the electronic bits?


#159

I still have the molds and the schematic, but I didn’t write the script or load it on the chip, however, I do have more already loaded on hand. The big problem is that I’m just too busy currently to do anything about it soon.


#160

Thanks for the reply mate!
