the new knex- good or bad?

recently after visiting a toy shop I noticed a strange new range of kits made of knex. they featured lego-like bricks and panels. so I guess the question is... whats going on and do we like them? please feel free to leave your views and comments.

They suck its just a copy of lego
Sprout_less, I totally agree with you. Even all knex fans who hate the micro parts and bricks should listen to this. If you want knex to stop making dumb parts, then try to email knex. Their email address is..........

Oh and by the way, I support the old knex pieces. And please check out my profile to see my instructables and slideshows. And please suscribe to me. :)

The bricks are taking over. I just bought the 550 piece K'nex value tub and it's half bricks. Out of 550 pieces, 66 are 2x4 bricks. This is what you get if you stack together all the 2x4 bricks from just the 550 piece value tub alone:

you must buy as many normal knex off ebay before everything is only bricks and micro

(sorry my english is xtremely bad i'm from holland)<:-(
I personally really hate it. Knex is trying way to hard. Now they are coming up with Knex bricks, Micro knex, And premade specialty parts, such as the tubes used in big air ball tower and corkscrew canyon. I don't like it, but that's just me.
I'd love to see your big cannon in micro k'nex!
T'would be interesting, indeed.
well, i find the tubes ok, as it was the only way to launch the ball up to the top using air.
I think that whole set is a fail. Little origonal knex, requires special tubing and a huge noisy motor, and is not as entertaining as a lot of other ball towers. Thats just my epinoin.
ya, i have two of them, one my dad got off of ebay for the pieces but if i wanted to i could make a cool one using the motors. i had the idea to use the air motor in there to create a pressure cannon. i don't think that the big air ball tower used tubing the coasters used but i could be wrong.
