in this instructable, i will be showing you how to make a badass little machine gun for one of your innocent lego minifigures. it is super quick and easy to do, and if you have the right peices, and enough of em', you could create an army of chaingun toting legos capable of mowing down anyone that gets in their way, be it droid, alien, or unsuspecting passerby, in no time
Step 1: What you'll need
to make the chaingun, you are going to need 6 common, easy-to-acquire parts that almost everyone with lego has. they are:
the black droid gun that comes with almost every lego star wars set (top left)
the smaller peice next to it, which we will call the right angle piece
the 1x1 piece with the tube on the top
the + shaped piece with a lego stud on the top (bottom left)
the circular piece that slips over the + shaped thing
and finally, the slimmer version of the above mentioned piece.
Step 2: Putting the pieces together
assemble the droid gun and the 1x1 piece with the tube as shown in the picture.
also, take a look at the second picture and put together the + shaped piece, and the two pieces that go over it, just like i did.
Step 3: The last piece
this is the step in which we see where the "right angle" piece goes. take a look at the picture, it speaks for itself, but just in case, it goes on the side of the tube. this is the handle your lego man will be holding when he goes on his gory (or bricky) massacre of innocent, unsuspecting legos. also, click the lego stud end of the + shaped piece into the bottom of the 1x1 piece with a tube
Step 4: Hideous massacre, here I come!
hurrah! your minifigure now has his very own mini lego chaingun, and is ready to unleash a lethal hail of bullets at the drop of a hat. please comment if you have any questions (or comments) and i will try my best to answer them.
