Introduction: The Robot

Picture of The Robot

After meticulous planning, drafts, and ideas, I present to you: The Robot.  This guy is perfect to build as a desktop toy, a tiny action figure, or really anything you want.  He is fully equipped with hundreds of degrees of movement in his arms and legs, making him very posable.  He has an easy-to-replace head feature while still being very sturdy.  If you so desire, he can hold any accessory that Lego Mini-figures can. He is very customizable, so if you build him feel free to modify him to your heart's content.   If you do end up building this guy, pictures are definitely welcome; if you take a photo and you so wish, I can add it to this step here.   Like all my other creations, the name, The Robot, comes from a song by Kraftwerk: The Robots.  I hope you enjoy this little knickknack!

There is instructions for this with a piece count at the end here, too, if you find these instructions unclear.

Step 1: Pieces Needed

While I don't have a piece count, these are some of the pieces you will need.  Before you build, make sure you have these.  All of them will be used at one point or another.

Step 2: The Chestplate

Step 3: The Arm Sockets

Step 5: The Legs and Head

Step 6: The Arms

Step 7: The Feet

After this, you're done.  Congratulations.  If you have any questions throughout this, please let me know.  This is my first time using Lego Digital Designer.  Please tell me how the instructions worked out.  Should I use them again?  Feedback is certainly welcome.

Nice!

Thank you. How have you been doing, anyways?

I still have to post some lifts and path separators, but I didn't have a lot of time the last months.

Ah, I am looking forward to them, of course; new elements from the king of ball machines is always nice. :3 I totally understand when you say you don't have time; life can get busy, that's for sure; at least you have time now.

Why would i have time now?! My exams start in a few days :p

Silly me. Let me correct myself: at least you will have time sometime soon. Oh dear, exams, huh? Exams are never fun. Study lots and ace it, my friend; I know you are more than capable. Then you can get to posting the new ball machine elements. :3

I will do that, mighty Dark Owl ;)

:P I wish you the best of luck, oh mighty Sandro: King of Ball Machines.

1600th comment! Thanks :p

You're welcome. Congrats on another 100 comments! (You have probably been one of my hundredth commenters, too; I usually don't keep track. I am at 800 something right now. Thank you for being my hundredth commenter sometime in the past.) :P

Haha, yay! And no problem!

Thanks for the comment; it's my 850th. :P

Yay again! :D

Cool! Glad to see another ible from the KOD. ...productions? Wydachayjdnaymedok?

Yep. New instructables, new name. Any new projects that you have planned?

Also, it is great to be talking to you guys again. I think I will just copy and paste the whole rant I gave to Red about what has happened to me: I am doing really well even without my K'nex, surprisingly. Of course I'd like to have it back, but still. So much has happened since I last talked to you guys: I have a girlfriend now and she is amazing; school has started once more; The Day of the Doctor (Doctor Who's Fiftieth Anniversary) just happened, prompting a huge party at my friend's house; my nerdy friends down here are more like my family; I just survived marching band season and it was awesome; I have found a lot of great music. Life is just a beautiful thing right now; I truly have never been happier. I felt guilty for just stopping my usage of instructables because I lost my K'nex. I have been so busy, though, that it took me a while to actually find time to do something. I hope to be on much more often now.

There you go. (:-j}

Cool esse, you sound busy, like me! :P

Yeah, the new name is DOPe! XD

Oh, yeah, too many to mention! (Approximately 67 to be completed over my next year at 'Ibles).

:P Oh, you! Good luck with all the ibles.

Thanks man!

OMG He's alive!!! Welcome back Owl!

I have been considering a trip back to lego as well, just for fun.

Great robot by the way! I'm interested to see what else you make =D

Yes, I am very much alive, thankfully. You guys are the best; it's great to see that everyone's so happy to see me again. :P And thanks for complimenting my robot; I do think he is pretty cool. Sadly, I can't even build one in real life; I don't think I have enough for the second arm, unfortunately. That's why it is a Digital file.

As I feel like you deserved to know what happened while I was gone, I think I will copy and paste my overly long rant about what I've been doing: I am doing really well even without my K'nex, surprisingly. Of course I'd like to have it back, but still. So much has happened since I last talked to you guys: I have a girlfriend now and she is amazing; school has started once more; The Day of the Doctor (Doctor Who's Fiftieth Anniversary) just happened, prompting a huge party at my friend's house; my nerdy friends down here are more like my family; I just survived marching band season and it was awesome; I have found a lot of great music. Life is just a beautiful thing right now; I truly have never been happier. I felt guilty for just stopping my usage of instructables because I lost my K'nex. I have been so busy, though, that it took me a while to actually find time to do something. I hope to be on much more often now.

It's great to see (or hear from) you again! (:-j}

Well good. Glad everything has worked out for you. I have had about a similar story minus marching band, but school has been very challenging this time around. Hopefully I'll have more freetime next semester.

Anyway a random question, is that lego program free?

If your story is similar to mine, I can assume you've been doing well, which is good to hear.  As a completely random statement: the other Tuba players in my section ensure an interesting time.  :3

Yes, the Lego program is free.  You can download it here.  It is very nice to work with; I recommend it.

Thanks =D

You're welcome. :3

Cool

Change of name?

Yep. Since I'm posting a variety of things I figured I'd become Dark Owl Productions. How's it going, anyways? Any new projects?

Makes sense. How am I? Great! Been keeping busy with school and stuff. How about you? Do I have any new projects? Yup, a M249 SAW (see my most recent forum topic for info).

Wow, that is looking beautiful; I don't even have to look at what the real gun looks like; your reputation proceeds you: I am going to assume it's spot on. I am doing really well even without my K'nex, surprisingly. Of course I'd like to have it back, but still. So much has happened since I last talked to you guys: I have a girlfriend now and she is amazing; school has started once more; The Day of the Doctor (Doctor Who's Fiftieth Anniversary) just happened, prompting a huge party at my friend's house; my nerdy friends down here are more like my family; I just survived marching band season and it was awesome; I have found a lot of great music.

I have been so busy, though, that it took me a while to actually find time to do something. I hope to be on much more often now. Did I mention that the M249 SAW looks gorgeous?
