Exclamation My New/Final Handlink Replica

This is my handlink replica. My final attempt. This one is made from coloured CD cases,acetate and lego, for the exterior, and flashing badges and a recordable card for the workings. It makes real noises and flashes. see the pictures attached of the front, side and back to view it.

Definitely the best looking replica I've seen so far. This really puts me in the mood to make one! Great job.

Hey Jeremy, I just checked the Sci-fi website. They're not taking the show off, its just not playing until the 16th (its a marathon starting at 8am eastern time and ending at 4pm eastern time). Then QL is taking a little break from Sci-fi, then it will come back starting January 23rd for a *drumroll please* DAYTIME ROTATION! Which means I wont have to stay up until 2am everyday to watch it! It says it should be on at 8am eastern time every morning from then on, it seems like. So, it's not being taken off of Sci-fi, its just doing multiple, temporary hiatuses.

That handlink looks like a great toy for little kids, with sound and lights and all.

Thank you again for all you lovely comments! as for how to make one ChickenStu...

I made a plan of the handlink (or at least how I saw it to be) by looking at the pictures on the al's place site Imagig chamber. I the looked out for materials I could use to make the casing. I found this material in my local pound shop! - Coloured CD cases! Then I Had a tip from Feldon29 of looking on Ebay for coloured lego pieces after a long wait I found a bulk lot.

Took a while to come but final I got them I printed my plan- actual size out from my computer. then I "traced" each tiny piece, with a stanley knife on the cd case plastic and snapped along the line. meanwhile I made a clear acetate handlink shaped "Box" again from the same plan -stuck it together with UHU. Then I stuck each tiny piece on with patience! front AND back!

Now - For the workings! I looked, Again on EBAY for the little sar flashing badges you can get. I found them got them and put them - with there magnet fixings onto a rectengular piece of acetate- like a cirucit board. to make sound - I recorded from my computer onto a recordable greetings card and stuck that onto my "circuit board" under a flap I made.

The "circuit board" can be slid out from flaps in the bottom and voila! a Handlink!



Not too detaild I know. Wish you hadn't asked now don't you? You got me waffling! lol

Thanks! it does not make noises when you smack the side lol, only when you push the red button!

and I'm afraid, the project is WAY too much work to make again for free! but I may in the far future make another to sell on Ebay... may lol.though Quantum Geek looks verry cool!!

Coloured erasers ChickenStu? Nice idea!

Hey Jeddie - I was wondering... is there any chance you could make some of these and sell them as novelty items at the 2009 convention?
