Re: making a Gonk Droid, anyone got any reference pics?

TK-409 (Chris) made a gonk droid costume for one of his kids and has a tutorial on it. Try his website.

I like it. What is the hologram projector piece? PVC pipe?
didnt even think about that, but yeah guess it does look like a holo projector, its just a pvc part from b and q (hardware shop if you're not in the uk)


Are those stratocaster pickup covers I see? Very cleaver!
10 points to that man! i had some old guitar parts lying around so i used those for part of the front panel. there's also a volume knob from an old guitar i had there too, oh and a strap hook glued to the top of another round part :) oh, and there's an actual electronic switch (incase i wanted to add speakers and make it go "gonk")


That gonk rocks! :lol

Seriously great job!! :thumbsup

thanks :) surprised how quick and easy it was to make

Very nice! I like the color choice as well.
thanks, i was just going to do it black, but then i saw the gonk droid toy that comes with the jawa figure and thought it looked good:



on top of that colour i've attempted some weathering with different shades of silver/grey

I did mine in metallic black. At the time I thought it looked pretty good, but I may end up repainting it. I also need to add the side detail to mine.

Too many half finished projects around the house..

Something that would be nice to add to a prop like this would be some good Gonk sound bytes free from movie music or distortion. Are there any out there to be had?

Nice! Very well done but it looks too clean! :)

You're the first person I have seen tackle this in a long time. I made one *years* ago for my brother-in-law and only at the end did I think about taking pics to make a tutorial. I have been trying to find time to make another (and take pics this time) and I ever have most of the parts set aside. I added lights to the panel on mine for extra fun.

If I ever do get the chance to make another, I wanted to add a motion detector with a sound chip so it "talks" when you get near it. :)

I think you're right. I believe there might be some in one or two of the Outcast games. Guess we'll just have to see if I can pull them.. :love
