Dalek (from Doctor Who)

Name of Model: Lego NXT Dalek
Created by: Rod Gillies
Found at: http://way2muchcaffeine.blogspot.com/2007/08/lego-nxt-dalek.html with a little more info at http://nxtasy.org/2007/08/13/lego-nxt-dalek/
Details:
This morning (while I was in bed feeling rather sick - sorry for the delay) Rod Gillies posted this Doctor Who-themed robot on his blog. This is a Dalek, which is one of the Doctor's enemies on the series. It looks like no effort was made to make it say "exterminate!", but it can properly rotate its head and move around. I'd love a good look at this one's LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT based internals, but I think that the collection of angled plates that makes this thing look a bit more like the ones on TV are great too. I don't think I actually have that many wing elements in my LEGO® collection...
