Hi all you members of internet land! Today I'm gonna be teaching you how I built my life-sized Wheatley replica from the game Portal 2!

you are going to need:
Sheets of "Fun Foam"
a Styrofoam ball (Ours was about 9 inches in diameter)
thick paper plates
an LED push-button light
a spinning stool-chair-thing
and paint

Step 1:

determine the size of your Styrofoam ball. you need to measure the circumference and diameter.
Make sure you have enough "Fun Foam" to fill the dimensions of [Circumference x diameter]

<p>That is awesome!</p>
<p>I made this one!</p>
Sorry, but 9 inches isn't life size. Go third-person mode. He's actually 3 or 4 feet in diameter!
He cant be that tall, can he?
Yes, he actually is! Again, go to third-person mode. He's about as big as Chell. He just appears smaller because of the POV vision.
<p>Better check the Moon scene where Chell grasps his handlebars. He's like a bit larger than 1 foot in diameter.</p>
He looks more like 2 or 2.5 feet to me, but still that's a lot bigger than 9 inches
Well here we are again
It's always such a pleasure.
Remember, when you tried to kill me twice?
oh how we laughed and laughed
Except I wasn't laughing
Under the Circumstances I've been Shockingly nice.
You want your freedom, take it.
That&rsquo;s what I&rsquo;m counting on,
I used to want you dead, but now I only want you gone. (JoCo Lyrics quote!)
She was a lot like you,
(Maybe not quite as heavy...)
now, little caroline is in you too.
One day they woke me up, (btw its now little caroline is in HERE too)
So I could live forever.
It&rsquo;s such a shame the same will never happen to you. (cue next line...)
You've got your short, sad life left.
That&acirc;€™s what I&acirc;€™m counting OOOOOOOONNNN,
I'll let you get right to it, now I only want you gone.
goodbye my only friend
Do, did you think I meant you?
That would be funny if it weren't so sad.
Now you have been replaced.
I don't need anyone now
When I delete you, maybe [MESSAGE REDACTED] (I'll stop feeling so bad.)
Go make some new disaster
That's what I'm counting on.
You're someone else's problem.
Really very cool!!!Just how do you get the styrofoam to make that shape?
Could you please add some pics i'm trying to make one and i'm really confused here
Hey, ill pay u for that
This needs more progress pics. im having trouble figureing out how to cut the foam them how to put it on.
You wouldn't care to link your fan model references would you?
That's a really nice replica :) like everyone else, I love Wheatley!
he may have betrayed everyone in the game (spoilers!), but at least everyone still has a heart for him :D
I like the Space Core most though! Wheatley IS pretty cool though. (no, m not saying that just so he wont get mad at me! of course not!) lol
I'm the best at space!
This is amazing! Very well done. Where can I find a LED push-button light?
oh i want one in my room
He's not just a regular moron. <br>He's the product of the greatest minds of the generation working together with the express purpose of building the dumbest moron that ever lived.<br>And you just made an AMAZING instructable on him. *slow clap*
&quot;Oh good, my slowclap processor made it into this thing.&quot;
