I bought a talking skull from monster guts, paid 500 buck and could not get the darn thing to work for the life of me. Then I saw this and bought it, I set it up in 30 minutes. Have to find the training video, so from the information perspective, they can definitely improve. However, once you find the video, it is a slam dunk. If you are looking for a talking skull I definitely recommend this.

I have had time to mount this in the skull I have. The youtube of this being done was what I used. Not one problem! I have not had a chance to hook it up to run it but after all the studying I have done on talking skulls... PLEASE add a 6 servo board to your product line! If you buy any other hardware to make a talking skull you will find that your buying a car without the engine! What good is it? That and your going to have to download software and learn how to use it in order to make your expensive package work. Not so with the Scary Terry. They do suck at answering e-mails!

I am very pleased with this kit, it took a while to adjust the board but once you tweak it you will not be disappointed! I hope they make a moving eye kit, I would love to add that to my skull.

The skull is nice and hefty, the mount is precise and solid. A bit shocked that there were no instruction provided in putting this kit together. Even if there was one paper with YouTube addresses to the DIY video, that would have been great. Instead, I had to search it out.

The reaction is not as expected; extremely slow and it looks as though the jaw bone is trying to open when it should be closing. I have not had any time to play with it much yet to see if I can adjust it like it is outlined on you tube. I bet I can get it to react better once I have time to adjust the gains.
