K'nex Rockem' Sockem' Robots

FeaturedContest Winner
Hello ladies and gentlemen! I'm your announcer JonnyBGood and I will be leading you through the breakdown of tonight's classic robotic boxing match! To my left is a robot that's more monster than machine, here's the Beastly Blue! If anyone is going to stand against this beast it will be the titanic titan on my right. His furious punches will strike fear in anyone on the receiving end, here's the Rageous Red! To bring a new life to this traditional game, each robot has been built similar but with their own unique appearance. Even though this may look different from the traditional classic game, it is a fully functioning set of fight robots bent on nailing a knockout punch to the opposition. Well now that you have seen are fighters are you ready to RUMMMBBBLLLLLLLLLLLLLEEEEEEEE!!!

We'll start with the most important part of a boxer, the arms. Can't win without those can we? Simply follow the pictures and be sure to pay attention to the joints on the arm. It may also be a good idea to make two of these except make sure that one is a mirror image of the other, or else you'll end up with two right arms...not so good.

Step 2: Round 2: The Legs and Body

Okay you got the arms, now a real boxer also has to be light on his feet. Unfortunately for you, your robot is really light on his feet right now.... without any. Anyway continue following the pictures and building what you see. Make sure to only build the middle section on one half though. If you still haven't started making the other arm and side of the robot, jump back to Round one and build it again just make sure it's the opposite of what you already have.

Step 3: Intermission

If you still don't have another side of your robot please construct one now. Use you current side and these pictures as reference. Also make sure to drop by the concession stand and pick up some popcorn because the action that happens next you won't want to miss.

Nevermind. LOL. But anyway, here are the p[ictures. One on the left is the robot, one on the right is the transformed version. (you don't need to take off or add on parts to transform it) I call it the "Rockem' Sockem' Traffic Jam Busters!"
