Lego Portal Sentry Turret

Introduction: Lego Portal Sentry Turret

About: I am a lego and crafts enthusiast who is a major nerd. Yep. That's it.

I recently got into portal (I know, I'm a bit late to the game here) and I also love legos, so why not give it a try?

Please note this is my first instructable ever, so do not judge too harshly.

Also, check out my facebook page, Epically Simple Brick Builds, where I cover my GLaDOS Boss Battle room MOC in its entirety.

Supplies

4 1x4 white plates

3 1x2 white plates

1 1x2 white jumper plate

1 1x3 black plate

3 1x1 grey/black tiles/plates

1 1x2 black jumper plate

1 1x1 black stud

1 1x1 red stud

1 2x2 black inverse curve plate

Step 1: The Obvious

Start with the 4 main 1x4s.

Step 2: Adding Shape

Add the 3 1x2s to 3 of the 1x4s.

Step 3: The Smaller Detail

Add the white jumper plate over the middel of the 4th 1x4. It being in the middle is important.

Step 4: The Eye

Add the red stud to the middle of the white jumper.

Step 5: Cheating the System

stick the 1x1 plates in between the studs of the eye plate.

Step 6: Building It Up

Do the same with the back plate.

Step 7: Body Done

Follow suit with the other panels.

Step 8: Budding Limbs

Add the black jumper plate to the bottom-front of the body.

Step 9: Front Legs

add the inverse curve on to the jumper as shown.

Step 10: Almost Done

Add the black stud to the bottom-back of the body, opposite the black jumper plate.

Step 11: Done

Add the black 1x3 with the black stud in the middle of it.

Step 12: Optional

For the active turret, replace the middle tile/plate with a grey/black 1x2 plate/tile.

    I love these even though they are a bit simple but sometimes simple is just right. I too got into portal just a bit later and am sad that I missed out when they were giving out the first game for free on Xbox One. Love your build!

    Thx,tried to keep them from being huge. To do that, simple was the way to go.

    Here are all of my turrets, both defective and functional. The defective ones may have different colorations (slightly), but they are easily identifiable.

    Tip 1 year ago on Step 5

    No adhesives are necessary, as the plates can actually stick "naturally" in between studs, a neat little trick that adds a whole new world of possibility.
