I’d been wanting to pickup a Meggy Jr from the fine folks at Evil Mad Scientist Labs for a while. When I saw that the MakerShed had them on sale last month as they were cleaning out inventory in preparation for Maker Faire, I decided that it was time to spend the cash and pick one up. Then I saw that they had free shipping for orders over $100 and I was reminded of the quote from Contact: “First rule in government spending: why build one when you can have two at twice the price?” The first thing I was to code up for it is a Battleship game, so I would need two anyway.
When I built the first one a couple of weeks ago, I was so excited that I dug right into it and built it right up. This time, I figured I’d do some unboxing shots since the packaging is very well done and downright hysterical. Unfortunately, they’re kind of blurry because I was using my phone camera.
