Richard Matheson dies at 87
I came across a small red plastic devil head being sold on ebay as a "replica" of the one in the classic Twilight Zone episode "Nick of Time". That's the episode where William Shatner keeps dropping pennies into the Mystic Seer fortune telling machine and reads all the fortunes that it spits out. He becomes obsessed with the machine and it almost ruins his life. This episode was always one of my favorites. The devil head on ebay was the wrong color and looked pretty cheesy. I figured I could make one myself that looked better using the plastic molding skills I learned making various Lost in Space B9 Robot parts.
To the left is my Devil Head in action on top of a custom Mystic Seer machine I made. It's just waiting for William Shatner to walk through the door with more pennies! I made the Mystic Seer out of some scrap plastic left over from my B9 Robot project. I even reproduced a set of the Mystic Seer fortune cards with the same fortunes as seen in the Twilight Zone episode.
