if u made the shield human sized, its a riot shield

TigerNod (author)pie25x2010-09-17

And it will use much more pieces....

Besides, by making it larger it doesn't become a riot shield. A riot shield is a shield that is used by police officers and protects against small projectiles such as bricks, sticks, and stones.

I see you also suffer from Lack-O-Pieces thereby disabling you from making perfect color symmetry. If only we could cure the world of this terrible disease =D lol

TigerNod (author)chibiturtleboi2009-09-14

I suffer from Lack-O-Pieces too. They say there is only one cure to this horrible plague:

Plooper (author)TigerNod2010-08-09

too bad I can't use ebay..... :(

TigerNod (author)Plooper2010-09-16

Don't worry, there are many other websites you can use.

Plooper (author)TigerNod2010-09-17

cant buy anything off of websites online..... :(

TigerNod (author)Plooper2010-09-17

Well, that sucks. Maybe you can try garage sales? If not, I can't help you.

redrover95 (author)TigerNod2010-02-16

me to i do not have it as bad as others but i some times can't build some really cool things

K1TK4T 117 (author)2010-04-04

im suffering from Lack O Pieces so if i need pieces i buy them from this site
its cheap and is delivered quickly

TigerNod (author)2009-09-14

Cool! By now, still one of the best shields on the site (that is, until I post mine >:-) 4.5

Jahoovi (author)2008-07-16

aall50 (author)Jahoovi2008-07-20

but then it is not realy a knew shield just a big board of tape...

mmzdaniel (author)2007-07-26

its the only one on the site but a bigger shield with less holes would be more efficient.

aall50 (author)mmzdaniel2007-08-02

i know

mmzdaniel (author)aall502007-08-03

well then modify it and repost lol...

aall50 (author)mmzdaniel2008-07-08

liamiscool9 (author)2008-01-18

aall50 (author)liamiscool92008-07-08

Cybeast-Ichigo (author)2008-07-07

I will get a picture on as soon as I can.

Cybeast-Ichigo (author)2008-07-01

I built one of these but connected the long flexible rods to the slots directly across from them, made it longer, and used yellow rods with orange 2-slot and dark grey 1-slot connectors to make a kind of sleeve so that the shield doesn't get warped. It fits over my entire forearm comfortably.

aall50 (author)Cybeast-Ichigo2008-07-06

can you sned a pic

Zombie hunter (author)2008-04-07

What the heck is that? Gorkems Sniper Rifle could smash that into tiny pieces!!

aall50 (author)Zombie hunter2008-07-06

gorkems sniper can aslo brake plywood in half.

panzerunit5 (author)2008-06-07

this shield powns i use it it with the flexy sword

nick_ripmees (author)2007-10-29

this is pretty dumb y the hell would u want a sheild with holes in it??? Just so u know it's not gonna protect u, and even if there was no holes it's still not big enough!!!

um, if you didn't realize, this wasn't made to protect you from bullets, buddy. guess what? i made the shield and it protects me from knex swords! and if your so worried about it, why don't you just make your own and stop leavin negative comments, eh? thought so.

kalot (author)2007-09-01

I doubt it would be useful against knex guns... Whereas the area covered by it is relatively small, and theres many holes.

yeah i would use panels instead

i dont have any big pannles but i know it works better my mate tried
