Kit Version of our ST-425 Skull
This kit provides are supplies necessary to build one of ST-425 Skull. You provide the labor and tools and save yourself some money!

The circuit inside the skull allows you to easily hook up audio to the circuit board to drive a servo for animating the jaw of your prop. Easily create a prop with that highly sought after animatronics effect!

Switches on the Scary Terry Audio Servo Driver board allow you to choose the Left, Right, or both audio channels to drive the servo in the skull.
A free audio editor, called Audacity, can be downloaded from www.audacity.sourceforge.net
Push Eject of the Halloweenforum.com has created an excellent video of how he uses this circuit and an audio editing program to make the jaw movement on his Bucky more accurate. Click here for the video.

I like the kit I bought, but it didn't come with the skull holes to mount everything pre drilled. So following along on the tutorial video is not incredibly possible for me. Took me longer than I care to admit that my skull want up to par, but if your paying over 100 dollars for a kit, its nice to have things ready to go. May alter review later, once everything is completly together.
I like the product and the order service was fast and it arrived un damaged. I do recommend the scary Terry talking skull.
The board works fantastic, the whole kit was easy to setup and have talking in no time, under an hour of set up. Great customer service.
Amazing! Bought this skull for a cauldron prop I'm building and it works perfectly.The assembly video provided on the website is spot on and made assembly a breeze.I will definitely be purchasing another and highly recommend it.
Extremely satisfied with this product. The instructional videos on youtube made it easy to complete. Happy camper.
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.
