As some of you know I recently posted pics of very complicated transformers i built out of knex from the new movie. Since those are very complicated to show people how to build it i chose to see if i can make one out of a smaller transformer i built. This hopefully will give you an idea of how i created the larger ones. Any questions or improvements are appreciated.

Step 1: Peices You Need

Some of the pieces I use are different colors but it dont matter as long as its the rt piece.

Step 2: Creating Legs

In the first picture build two of these to create the legs. The second and third picture connect the hole in the grey connector on the bottom part of the knex man body.

Step 3: Arms and Head

First and second pictures you need these pieces to create the arms and both are the same. Connect to the body in picture 3. In pictures 4 - 6 you need to take those pieces and assemble them to create the face which you will need to attach more to in a later step.

Step 4: Building the Scorpion Legs

First and second pictures show how to build a pair of legs you need to build 3 of them so the scorpion has 6 legs. Picture 3 shows what pieces you need to put them all together. Picture 4 shows that you have to put a grey connector in between the yellow connectors with the legs. The next 3 pictures show different angles of it all assembled if your still unclear how to make this let me know. The last 3 pictures show how to attach the piece to the head you build earlier.

Step 5: Creating Scorpion Face

The First 5 pictures show how to build the scorpion face. The last 3 pictures show how to attach it to the legs you built earlier.

Step 6: The Scorpion Claws

Create 2 of everything in the first picture and connect them together so you have 2 of them like the second picture. The two green rods from the green connectors will snap into the blue connector of his face. Now the thing you have been building for a few steps now is almost done.

Step 7: Building the Gun

The is the last thing you have to build the next step will be to transform it. In the first picture Build these things. In the second picture put the two blue rods together like this and connect the front with those black pieces. In the third picture connect 2 yellow connector together with a white or silver rod it doesn't matter just a color, same with the next step the normal color for that is a red connector. Connect the blue rod with the ball join in the back of the yellow connectors as shown and you got yourself the gun. The next Steps show how to fold all the scorpion things onto his back and how to hold his gun. This would be him in robot mode complete.
I admire your skill. Please post transformers without the knex man piece

can you make a new black body part out of other knex<br>
were do you get the black body pice
whats the black body like pice
lol it&acute;s good&iexcl;<br /> :)<br /> <br />
What are the 3rd and 4th connecters down with the 1 next to them?
O duh, its 2 peices of the knex man head assembly the eyes and the top part
actually it's the eye part and the bottom part i think
actually it can be used for the top or bottom either way its part of the head assembly
ohh, thanks
its gonna be boring to say but i love it=)<br/>
same here i just finished building it
can you get the torso from knex.com?
I honestly have no idea where to buy more knex men figures they were awesome. If you find out where to get them let me know.
you can more knex men figures in like a big brief case looking container because for my birthday my cousin had alot of knex and he knew i loved to build with them so he gave them to me for birthday because he doesn't play with them anymore and that's how i got my knex men.
woah this is good i have built and have decided my new prodject has anyone heard on metroid prime ,samus,bounty hunter any thing well i think i will post a forum topic on the matter go and see if you are interested
what are those funny blue connector where can i get one
You can get them from the Space Station set There are hundreds in it
where the hell is that?
I dont know, got it for cristmas 4 years ago.
you can get one of them from almost if not all knex sets
scorpinoc looks cool!!!!!
but where do you get the top black piece?
u forgot da tail
the gun is the tail
i dont see the tail
then your obviously blind.
This isnt as good as the larger car one but still really cool.
scorponic is my favorit and instead of that toy gun that duzent fire i made a mini knex gun on it i love this!!!
cool can it transform with the new gun?
lol no i hav it stuck at robot mode.. but ill figure somtin out
aww i dont have them bricks are they nesacarry?
i had a dream about those bricks is said 'no!! no!! not the bricks!!! they are horrible!!!
yeah knex made these lego-like bricks that are compatable with knex rods
Knex is just trying to make more money. They come up with worse stuff every year. Bricks? Trucks with electronic sound systems? Lame.
yeah, i know. they used to sell knex in cardboard boxes but now they do it in big plastic ones so about £5 is going towards paying for the box alone
i hate those things i dont have any of those stupid pieces
me too
what? i guess i dont have them
i dont think may people have, they only brought them out in special sets earlier this year
eventualy when i post a larger transformer i promise it wont have any stupid lego rip off knex bricks or anything stupid like that but they do contain a few special pices but still just knex pieces
there are no bricks in here... i made the whole thing without bricks the brick looking things are the guys layer head pieces
my brother said these are lame cause they are basically guys with stuff on their back... post the big one and ill show him
its going to take alot of work to turn the bigger ones into a instructable i have to show you how to build it and then how to transform its rather difficult and it takes time eventually i will probably post one of them
