Step 1: Parts and Stuff About the Ball
Obviously, the ball is made out of LEGO and uses SNOT (Studs Not On Top). It is made of 6 squares with plates stacked on it that give the ball it's unique round shape. Here are the materials for the whole entire ball:
18 2x4 plates (you could use 6 4x4 plates instead of the 12 2x4 plates that I used for the ball)
4 1x4 bricks with 4 studs on the front (please tell me what they're called in the comments)
6 1x1 with 1 stud in the front (not headlight brick)
1 2x2 (used for a support in the ball)
1 1x2 brick (also used for a support)
6 2x2 plates
12 1x2 plates
That's all the parts you need for this ball! You can make it all the same color if you want, I decided not to.
Step 2: How to Assemble the Squares
Each picture corresponds to a step (I will add notes on the pictures if you get confused on the steps below.
Step 1. Take 2 2x4 plates and put them together
Step 2. Connect the 2 2x4 plates together with a 2x4 in the middle (picture 2)
Step 3. Put 1 1x2 on the right side in the middle of the square next to the 2x4
Step 4. Repeat step 3 on the other side
Step 5. Place a 2x2 on the middle of the top 2x4 next to the 1x2s
Step 6. Repeat steps 1-5 5 more times
Step 3: Assembling the Ball Shape
There are notes on the pictures so use the pictures as the instructions on how to assemble the ball shape! If any steps are confusing to you, let me know.
