Junkbot Dragon Catapult Awesomeness Thing

On the 20th, we worked on assembling a junk bot; as we had limited knowledge and supplies, we primarily made sculpture-like bots or assembled rudimentary ones.  My group assembled a dragon-like sculpture of a bot, with various scavenged parts.  We used quite a few cell phone remains, and ended up with a massive dragon with a catapult attached.  I was attempting to modify a phone to have a spring-loaded function, and my creation was eventually integrated into the structure as a head.  We also constructed various types of ammunition, and tested them, storing them in a container we made as the dragon’s tail.  To perform this feat, we assembled various electronic components with the aid of copious amounts of tape, a bit of glue, and a few rubber bands.  Pictures are included below:
