This is a cool robot I made. It turns, moves its legs, and can bend its arms. Please rate 5* I hope you like the instructable. Here is a pic of what the robot looks like.

Step 1: The Legs

This is the part for the legs.

This is where the body and legs will connect.This is a simple step to make.

Step 3: The Body

This is the body of the robot.

Step 4: Connecting the Body to the Base and the Legs

This is how to connect the body  to the base. Then connect the legs on it to complete this step.
