Well it's swivel-eyed, the mouth's permanently open, it's ugly enough to give a small child nightmares and it's got a tendency to veer to the left. We call it Harriet Harman.

We got the turrets cheap from the Navy, they were originally part of a consignment of cancelled deep sea diving suits, we simply removed the arms and grafted on the guns.
