If you really want to scare off those jerks who are coming to egg your house, you need a pumpkin with a little more menace than those usual jack o'lanterns. Luckily, you've got just enough time to carve your very own pumpkin replica of the killer robots from Battlestar Galactica, the Cylons, if you start now. EvilMadScientist has painstaking instructions on creating your own dark robo-pumpkin, complete with the trademark back-and-forth glowing eye, thanks to a set of LEDs.

Fantasy Pumpkins has a super-detailed set of instructions, so your pumpkin can end up looking like this:
