|In Doctor Who episodes like "Spearhead from Space" and "Terror of the Autons" Autons are part of an attempt to conquer Earth by animating plastic mannequins, dolls, chairs, phone cords, and so forth. Anything plastic could turn on you and kill you. Autons can be faceless killers like the ones I made, or duplicates of politicians, generals, or other key figures. Given plastic's versatility and omnipresence, there's a really cool horror story waiting to happen, if I can just come up with it! Until then, enjoy these images, my first attempt at animation, and the How To.|
|If you want to do it yourself, I have instructions (with photos) detailing how I made my Autons on my How to Make a Customized Auton from Doctor Who webpage. Learn how to make your own plastic menaces!
