For this cool instructables you will need two toilet paper rolls, sharpies that have the same color on the instructables robot, cardboard, hotglue, hotglue gun, xacto knife, scissors, paperclips, two round things for the ears, and a pencil.

Step 2: The Cutout

First get a computer and look up an image of the robot, then get your poster board and trace the picture. After you have traced you need to then cut it out using your xacto knife. Do this for the front and back.

Step 3: Making it 3D

As you can see in the picture above there is a piece of cardboard that is rectangular. You need to cut out one that is long enough to wrap around the edges of the front and back of the robots body.

Step 4: Checking your 3D Body

Our robot needs fingers so get your cardboard and scissors and cut out 8 fingures (4 for each hand obviously).

Step 12: Toilet Paper Roll Legs

Get you toilet paper legs and cut less than 1/3 off. The part that is less than 1/3 will be the wheels that are attached to the robots legs. Now get your legs and attach them to the body, do the same to the wheels except glue them to the ends of the paper rolls.
