A do-it-yourselfer named Wendell had the time, the interest, and evidently a spare pumpkin. The result, a fully functional Dalek recreation!
HT to SyFy Blastr, which notes:
Wendell didn’t use the traditional Kaled to power the Dalek shell. Instead, he outfitted the pumpkin with wheels, a servo motor and a remote control. So this particular Dalek might not look the part of universe-threatening alien … but it moves as if it could exterminate you.
OK, so “fully functional” may be stretching things a bit as it can’t actually exterminate you. But it really looks cool.
