Lightbulb Tiki Man computer mod in progress

Check out this link, I just bought the tiki on the very left. He's three feet tall so im thinkin i cut it off in the middle below the head, and make a custom computer out of it. Any suggestions?

looks interesting, just make sure you cut some vents for airflow, Im guessing the walls may be somewhat thick.
