Introduction: K'nex - Mystery Box

About: Hello there I'm Zombiekiller-93 but me can call me Jay. I like making models of K'nex guns from the Call Of Duty games that don't shoot anything because I just like it as a model because I just really do. I ...
Hey guys, now instead of doing my usual routine where I use pictures of K'nex guns from other Instructables members to build my own versions of theirs and then write a review on it but I have done something completely different.

 

Because I do enjoy playing Call Of Duty: Zombies on my PS3, I got the idea to build this when youtuber ZaziNombies made his own Mystery Box out of over 10,000 lego pieces and it thought to myself that I could make my own out of K'nex because I own loads of pieces and I knew the dimensions for one.

 

Anyway let's talk about the Mystery Box, basically it appears in every single zombie map in Call Of Duty: World At War, Black Ops and Black Op II and what it does is, it gives you a random weapon for 950 points. After the Mystery Box has been used several times a teddy bear appears and it moves the box to a different location in the map and you get your money refunded as well. If you pick up a Fire Sale power up, the box will spawn at every possible location and the price is reduce just to 10 points but this will only last for 30 seconds.

    I really like this and I love getting the PPs-A1 out of that thing. Either that or the AK-47. Great job!

    Thanks Mastersplinter, think you mean the PPSh-41

    Thanks, well start saving up or wait until you get a paid job

    Yeah, I could buy more pieces, but I am saving up to buy a .22 in the future.

    Also, you say that you volunteer at the Warwickshire Air Ambulance. What kind of work are you doing there? Also, the ? marks on the top of the box are very cleverly done.

    Well Corgi its basically voluntry work so I don't get paid but for 3 days a week, I help on the till and sometimes go out on the van to help collect and deliver furniture but I have been saving up my money for years which is why I own quite a lot of K'nex. Yes you are right about the ? marks coming out well. This .22, will it be either a pistol or rifle.

    Ok, thanks for explaining about your volunteer work. The .22 I have been thinking about is a lever action rifle. It does not cost all that much, but I don't want to spend all my money on it and then not be able to buy anything else. To be honest, I probably wouldn't buy one for a year or two. Here is the link to the rifle: http://www.henryrifles.com/rifles/lever-octagon-frontier-rifle/

    Well I don’t know since I never thought about it but thanks for the idea

    Oh la la! You have a LOT of pieces. More than the best K'nexers out there on ibles!

    Really? So people like Shadowman, Sorunome, Sandro, IaC, Millawi Legend, Kairah.... The list goes on forever - they all have 30K + pieces and this only has 8500 which is less than a third. I don't really see how this tops the amount they have...

    Sorry if that came out as offensive or anything - It was not intent.

    I am talking about the ones who are there now. Shadowman, Sandro, and Sorunome are still active now, but IaC, Millawi, Kairah? I don't think that they are coming online now. Yes, I get your point, and I respect it... but as I said, there are still great knexers like Red, Jonny, you, who don't have that many pieces (Well, don't know bout Jonny).

    Yep, even I don't have that many pieces, but yeah, I got around 5000. But still, I have more 3D connectors than him... :P

    Also, I did not feel offended at all. So, I would still like to say in my favour, a correction in what I said above in my comment, "More than many great K'nexers out there on i'bles". And yes, he does have a lot of hinges and white connectors. And a LOT of green rods. Around nine times more than me!

    I hope you understood my point. Of course, you are correct as well. Actually, both of us are correct at our own points.

    Also, I do believe that IaC is still active now since he mentioned a month ago he is working on a ball machine. To show that he is still building, he showed the community also a wheel, in which is a element one can incorperate in a ball machine..

    Again, I may be wrong, but only time will tell.... :-P

    Yeah, I saw that! It was kewl.

    Another question...(sorry)

    Define what a 'great' K'nexer is.

    As you have said, a great knexer is not who has more pieces, but a person who has enough experience to make good stuff. A good knexer should also be a versatile builder.

    He/she should also have made something which has been featured, and/or something that has the capability of being featured but it could not (due to some or the other reason).

    So, now I guess you know what a great knexer is!
