    Now is the winter of our discontent made summer by the glorious eyes of laser!

    The eyes don't do green laser pew pews, but they do light up.

    There's a lot of space in the hollow tail backpack for a magnetic switch and a battery case, and there's a convenient void in the head right under the eyes in which to wedge some tiny LEDs. I designed a 3D-printed piece to hold them in position. 20210823_162333.jpg

    The setup is definitely a beginner's work, but it's also entirely contained within the backpack and tucks away relatively cleanly in raptor mode without partsforming, so I call it a win!

    Well, maybe you'd see the circuit if you're looking for it, but not on the first date.

    Hmmm.... Looking good! Light setup is impressive. And he he holding a nerf disc? Really must've got dinobot mad when he had the wrong brand. "Have you no HONOR?!?!?

    Thanks! That's the Disc of Time from Bionicle. Felt appropriate, in an incorrect kind of way.

    Those eyes look great! Nice job making it all tuck away, too.
