Introduction: K'NEX Vanquisher VIII

Picture of K'NEX Vanquisher VIII

"Executor-issued auto rifle for loyal supporters of the New Monarchy." - In Game Description

Hello again everybody! I've got something new for you guys, something that a lot of you have been waiting for for quite some time. Weapons from Destiny! So today I'm bringing you the Vanquisher VIII, a legendary auto rifle that can be obtained through purchase or from decoding engrams.

Initially, I was just trying to replicate the basic shape of many of the rifles from destiny, using the Vanquisher VIII as my base, but as it started to turn out better and better, I just decided to finish it as a Vanquisher VIII. Just as a quick note, the side panels are grey as a tribute to Blue Mullet, shout out to you man!

Coming in at about 35 in. long, the Vanquisher is one heck of a sturdy gun with a 7 in. pin pull, a 14+ rd. magazine, and an amazing grip and stock, this beast can handle all kinds of torture!

As this is my first entry into the latest K'NEX Contest, I'd really appreciate a vote, a favorite, and comment down below for what you'd like to see next!

I sense a member of the New Monarchy Cult......
lol awesome as always! I'm an enormous fan of destiny and I may make this to mount on my wall.

Do you want to play sometime, that's like all I play so I have three 32s and I mostly just goof around with friends, And I got space on my raid team if you want to join. GT: KillatronicDude

I am on Xbox One

JonnyBGood (author)myOmy2015-05-12

Well I'd absolutely love too, but I'm a PS3 player....

One of my favorite guns in Destiny <3

Looks slick dude! I see you've been playing a LOT of Destiny these days! Have you got any exotics yet? I got the Hard Light with the nightfall this week, Hawkmoon with a nightfall the last week, an Ice Breaker from the VOG exotic chest, and a Gally (which I don't know where it came from xD).

What's your favorite Class and Subclass? And your favorite loadout? Mine is currently: Hard Light, Murmur, Hunger of Crota OR Vanquisher VIII, Ice Breaker, Hunger of Crota. Tell me yours!

I play on the Xbox 360... Add me if you want: KnottyThought1

myOmy (author)akshat210452015-05-11

Bruh, you did not get a Hawkmoon, You're claiming you got Hawkmoon on Xbox 360 (which is a PS3 and PS4 exclusive) I am calling BS

akshat21045 (author)myOmy2015-05-11

Whoops, I got confused. I meant The Last Word... always confuse that with the Hawkmoon.

Yeah? Glad you like it! I actually don't own nor have I ever played Destiny. I don't play games online see, so there really isn't much point in me getting Destiny, since I wouln't be able to play it...

Thanks man! Don't forget to vote!!!

This is pretty sweet man! I put down Destiny for a little bit because of my transition to the Xbox One (I own it for the 360), and I must say you did a fantastic job replicating the weapon. Good work man! =D

Thanks man, I haven't heard from you in a while, whats up with you? I don't even own, nor have I ever played Destiny. Thanks again man, don't forget to vote!

Just a ton of homework, I feel like I don't even have time to stop and take a breath. I wake up and from the start to the end of the day I'm juggling between school, chores, and soccer. I plan on building some stuff, I know I keep saying this, but I really do want to start building again. After AP exams are over, I should have plenty of time to try and tinker around. I really do hope to get back to it. :/

Yeah man, I hope you do too! I was (and still am) a huge fan of yours, so I'd be all hyped if you posted some more classic Raz1r stuff! I graduated in December so I don't have to worry about school right now, I just work about 40 hrs. + a week, and try to juggle the fun stuff in there too...

Well, hopefully not "classic" works, because my original works came from a childish mindset, when I hadn't really matured, haha. Seriously though, I need to build some new stuff, I have a mind that is now a little more open to the capabilities of what can be accomplished, and hopefully put to work some innovative ideas. The toughest part though is coming up with a concept that is refreshing for builders everywhere, lol.

Really cool, it had been a while since you made a gun but this is epic. Looks great.

Out of interest, does the gun feel bulky coz it looks it. Not a bad thing, it's just big.

Thanks man! It really means a lot! No actually, it really isn't too bad. It is actually rather slim, still robust, but slim. Thanks again so much!

ok cool, and good luck with the contest, I have a cocept design drawing which looks cool, I have yet to make it out of knex, hopefully that should enter the contest soon

Sounds good man!

Well, it also looks good, it is built now and I am pretty happy with it, I wish I had taken some pics of the first build, because I modded it so much, to try and make it better, I still need a mag lock(which I've never done before,) and a better stock because at the moment, in terms of looks it lets the gun down, too boring and simple.

Anyway good luck, I think you stand a really good chance of winning. I will just wish...

I love it! That handle looks so comfy, and the sight is epic. Very nice weapon, but a tad too many cut parts. I favorited.

Congrats on the feature too!

Thanks man! I'm glad you do, and I really do appreciate all of you guys! Thanks again man, means a lot!

You are very welcome!

seamster (author)2015-04-27

This is an awesome looking gun. And beautiful photos too!

Pardon my ignorance--does it shoot? If so, I'd love to see a video of this shooting! ;)
