    Hi all,
    here is the result of this afternoon's efforts. Just a couple of hour of fun (considering also time to reprint one parts page that my son accurately shredded when i already cut the pieces)
    Enjoy

    Looks good. I did one of these, and had to add weight in the feet to make it stand up (I glued pennies in the foot modules).

    i was lucky enough to glue the legs in a position which allows a "natural" equilibrium, even if very prone to fall back. My son likes to blow at it and say "i defeated the robot!" after it falls.

    I also built the AT and had the same top heavy problem. I resolved it by making a base which not only keeps it stable, it also strengthens the legs so that they do not break off. Here is a pic of the base.
