"Not building does not compute!"
―The Robot

The Robot is a minifigure, who appeared in 8683 Minifigures Series 1. He has a silver helmet and a robotic right arm. He appears in the online game Brick Builder and in LEGO Universe, and he is mainly all grey.


The Robot has grey legs, hips, torso, arms, head , hands and helmet. This is to imitate a metal body. On his legs and torso are lots of printed bolts, and his torso also has a gauge with red and green printing on it, and a metal grate of some kind over his stomach. He has one normal arm and one robotic arm, which has a pneumatic claw instead of a hand. Under his helmet, he has a detailed face with red eyes, grille-like mouth, and other robotic components. His helmet has chunky antenna and 3D bolts.

"Not building does not compute!”

With his powerful metal body and mighty claws, the Robot may look tough, but what he really loves to do is build, build, build! Constantly clanking, beeping, whirring and sending out jets of steam, he works tirelessly day and night, searching out spare bricks wherever he can find them and stacking them together to create the biggest, tallest and most incredible structures that you can possibly imagine. In fact, he loves constructing things so much that sometimes he forgets to recharge his circuits and freezes in place, right in the middle of building.

He’s slow to react to things that he doesn’t expect, and prone to occasional short-circuits, with a tendency to walk right into holes, spin around suddenly in place or crash through walls without even noticing. He also has a bad habit of “finding” bricks in other people’s creations and marching off with them, right over or through any obstacles in his way, but don’t blame the Robot – it’s just his programming!
