Picture of Offical K'nex Transformer Instructable

This is an Actual Transformer Knex came out with 8 years ago and the instructions are still in tact. This is the ONLY transformer instructions i own and since I had it for so long i figured it would be cool to bring back one of the better Knex sets that came out.

Step 1: Steps 1 -17

Step 4: Transforming the Truck

It an easy transformation and a build but like a lot Knex designs it has potential to be upgraded.

Step 5: Easy to Custamize

Before I had the ingenious idea to create transformers out of knex based on the movie toys I built this. But it wasn't good enough for me So i decided to use this design as a base model for my Optimus Prime that I created. These pictures are an evolution of my Optimus Prime.

ColtenSmith (author)2009-07-27

Hey glitched hate to pester you but you have got to post that knex Ratchet. He is freakin ausome!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

agent harmsy (author)2007-08-13

this is cool! are there any more in the set? because usually they have 3 models, please post if there are.

I scanned the entire instruction booklet so I'm pretty sure this was the only model for the set, i guess cause it was a transformer it would be rather difficult to make a few models out of it.

there are other knex transformers, i know there was a plane and i think there was a car. They are extremely rare, however

I wish i could of seen them this was one of the best sets knex made because it was unique

knexsuperbuilderfreak (author)2009-04-18

bedbugg2 (author)2007-08-12

how did this come out 8 years ago? metallic parts came out 2-3 years ago and the missles mean it was near when the cyber knex came out

glitched9700 (author)bedbugg22007-08-12

well then i could be mistaken but it certainly was a while ago

i have a robot world set

bedbugg2 (author)bedbugg22007-08-12

actually come to think of it i was 11 when i got cyber knex i think it was 5 years ao

Mad Cat (author)2007-08-10

glitched9700 (author)Mad Cat2007-08-10

Mad Cat (author)deviant2007-08-15

I meant the Transformer sets, I didn't add a link. But I also have the dinosaur set.

deviant (author)glitched97002007-08-13

Aman13 (author)2008-03-06

Please make an Instructable for Optimus Prime its awesome. Also if you don't like knex then don't look at it.

knexman (author)2008-02-04

i think that every body should scan all thier instructions and put them on the net then this site would be better than the knex site itself

arrow shot (author)2007-10-27

legos are harder to make guns with..and knex do have mini figures, from te rather old ( i think) set of..battle bots? idk...umm...builder battles? anyways, when u hit a lever with ur wepon(some have hammers that hit the opponents lever) , the minifgre flies out and he looses, its rather fun if ur still kid-ish...u should just play the same thing, but virtually...legos have awesome lego ppl and wepons, thats all i like for tho >.<

koolkidd (author)arrow shot2008-01-13

catwood (author)2007-09-23

Whaleman (author)Easy Button2007-08-19

Ya, according to their ads, they even have "walk"

Mepain (author)glitched97002007-08-19

You forgot to say "Duh". Duh. lol jk.

noahw (author)2007-08-12

This is really better suited to appear in the forums rather than as an instructable. I am going to unpublish your project and I encourage you to publish it in our forums. Thanks for the instructions though - it's pretty cool that knex came out with directions 8 years ago. Sincerely, Noah

agent harmsy (author)noahw2007-08-13

dude, what the hell? this is a cool instructable, from a set that not many people have, and that someone has taken the time to put up for all of us to benefit from. so really, why does that give you the right to unpublish it?
