Homemade Lego Advent Calendar 2014: Day 15

The story behind the Homemade Lego Advent Calendar: We opted not to buy the Dude a Lego Advent Calendar for the past couple of years. The Dude was quite amenable, countering with: "Ok, then you have to build me something every day until Christmas." Challenge  accepted! This is the series of daily posts, cataloguing my builds.

Today's build is based around one of my favourite video games: Portal 2. This is Atlas, or as hubby referred to him: "No way! The best one yet."

If you're not familiar with the game, here's a pic of Atlas in its true form:

The build is based on this set of instructions from the Instructables site. If you're ever looking for Lego instructions, Instructables is another great resource in addition to Brickipedia and Brickset which I've blogged about before. The majority of the builds showcased on Instructables aren't standard builds, which makes them so much fun to make. Like today's :) 

See you tomorrow!
