Cool, here’s the parts list / instructions for the latest iteration of my Semi-autonomous Mobile Attack / Recon Tetrapod.

For the chassis:
1 x Dish 2 x 2
4 x Plate 1 x 1 Round with Towball
1 x Plate 2 x 2 Round

Each leg is made of:
Arm Piece with Towball Socket
Arm Piece with Pin and 2 Fingers
Brick 1 x 1 Round with Hollow Stud
And the sexy angled feet (which bricksmith doesn’t have, so it’s only a 1 x 1 Plate Round in the render) are Slope 30 1 x 1 x 2/3

That goes together pretty straightforwardly, I think. Into the hole of the 2 x 2 Plate goes a Technic Axle Pin, and on top of that goes the core of the turret, a Brick 1 x 1 with Studs on 4 Sides.

The turret, then, is:
Brick 1 x 1 with Studs on 4 Sides
3 x Plate 1 x 1 on the front, the third of which is a transparent color to make the “eye”.
2 x Plate 1 x 1 and a Tile 1 x 1 with Clip on the back, and in the clip goes an Antenna 4H.
On top is his little hat, a Dish 2 x 2 Inverted.

On the exposed side studs of the central brick go Plate 1 x 3s.
The front two studs of those get a Tile 1 x 2 Grille, and the back one gets a Technic Brick 1 x 1 with Hole to hold the gun.

The gun assembly is a Technic Pin with Friction through another Technic Brick 1 x 1 with Hole, in the exposed bottom of which goes a Brick 1 x 1 Round with Hollow Stud, and in the bottom of that goes another Technic Pin with Friction for the gun barrel.

46 pieces (I just bricklinked parts for 2 for like 8 bucks), a green die, a yellow die, and 2 red dice plus a red d8 at direct fire! They’re smallish, so you may have to assume they’re AI-controlled, but what the hey.
