“Ralphie I” was just a simple snap fit box. See: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1384028
“Ralphie II” is a snap fit box with four movable legs.
“Ralphie III” will integrate the mechanism that moves the legs. The internal ends of each leg will be modified to incorporate this mechanism.

Makerbot dual extruder experiment (Success!)
Now, let’s get the mechanism portion of this project working!
