My first Instructable has officially reached 1,000 views! What a milestone in this journey! So, in celebration of this achievement, I have decided to make an Instructable on the new fan-favorite Star Wars droid, BB-8. Said to be "the cutest droid in the galaxy", BB-8 has taken the world by storm. It's only fitting that I make a how-to on a Lego version along with the release of the new movie. Thanks for building, and have fun!
Step 1: BB-8
Here are the pieces you will need to make a Lego BB-8
Step 2: The Body (Inside)
Take a white sextant and five studs, preferably white, and place them on all sides of the sextant except for the top.
Step 3: The Head
To make BB-8's head, place three orange studs and one black stud ontop of a white 2x2 circular plate. Then, stick a grey stick through the hole in the 2x2 plate. To finish it off, take a white satellite dish and cover the head.
Step 4: Connecting
You can then connect the head to the body.
Step 5: The Body (Exterior)
For a nice finish, place satellite dishes on the studs except for the bottom one. For the bottom stud, take an upside down satellite dish and place the stud in the center.
Step 6: The Final Step
This step is optional, but it helps a lot. Thanks for building and I hope you enjoyed!
