Steps 1 and 2 will tell you what you need for this project, and steps 3, 4, 5, and 6 will tell you what to do.
Step 1: Building Materials
You will need 2 types of parts: big parts and small parts.
I used big parts to build the body and limbs of my robot. The small parts came in handy to add details and make the face.
Step 2: Needed Tools
- hot glue gun
- super glue
- utility knife
- paper towels
You'll need the hot glue gun to connect the bigger pieces together, and the super glue to glue on the smaller pieces. I recommend using super glue on the smaller pieces because it looks much neater than hot glue. Hot glue is useful when you're connecting two pieces that don't fit perfectly together because it can fill gaps. The utility knife is handy for cutting off excess hot glue and for adjusting pieces to better fit your needs. The paper towels are needed simply to wipe off any extra glue to keep your work area clean.
Step 3: Make the Body
Step 4: Make Arms and Legs
This is a good example of how you can show your individuality through the robot. I have the weird idea that wearing different socks is lucky. Also I ride my bike a lot, hence the two toy bike wheels on the side of one leg. You can include personal elements of this nature too.
I made the arms out of parts from an alarm clock/stereo thing which i used because the pieces looked like arms. I added a shoulder made from large washers to one arm and a green laser thing made out of a pen cap and gear to the other arm.
I also made a weapon for my robot because every superhero robot needs a super mega laser blaster thing.
Step 5: Make the Head
The rest of the face is made of various small parts, including the eyebrows which are glued to springs so they can bobble around.
Step 6: Final Touches
This project is something cool to do if yo have a lot of junk lying around, and this might be fun to do with kids.
That's really it. Keep it as a decoration, or give it to a friend and tell them how much you love them.
