Introduction: Wall-e Garbage Bot

Check my Project Nine -RX too!

The new knex gen is here!
Let's start off with my instructable: Wall-E!
I won't be a spoiler so i'm gonna tell you a few facts about this one.

- He has storage room for 7 medium tires, 12 big rims and 2 red/yellow gears.

- Arms can move in every direction (even back and forth).

- Can drive without help.

- He looks very similiar to the original Pixar Wall-e.

- Uses 2 very rarely seen parts for the arms (which are very big ball joint sockets and ball joints that you can get, with the Old School Bike 2x or the Stretch Bike 2x).

-Uses both motors that come with the Starburst Spinner Set (aren't needed for Wall-e's construction).

I think you can MOD the arms so he doesn't need the rare sockets and joints, but i didn't figure it out yet.

Do you like him?
Let's go build then, shall we?

Step 1: The Chains (not Required)

Picture of The Chains (not Required)

this is not required but they make wall-e look more similiar to the real one.

P.S: If you make the chain, make it so all the pieces are same way connected.

Step 2: Rear Part

This part is too help wall-e from falling backwards and support for the body (engine not required).

Step 3: Middle Part

This part keeps the front and the rear bottom of Wall-E together.

Step 4: Front Part

This is the front of wall-e's tracks and wheels ( engine is not required).

Step 6: The Front of the Body

Skreetsha (author)james42009-09-17

Doctor Who (author)2008-10-12

make an eve now

DrWeird117 (author)Doctor Who2009-02-14

How would you make the floating head?

mettaurlover (author)DrWeird1172009-08-27


mettaurlover (author)2008-11-02

i know how to mod the arms...

AND on mine i've used the cyber knex parts and made i tthink for itself. AND i've given it a machine gun... unfortunately, it died when it fell down three flights of stairs. and when i got down there, it had enough fight in it to fire on me. i will NEVER use a gatling gun on one of my cyber robots again. at least not one that srong. i still hurt from getting ten shots to the stomach.

bighead5454 (author)mettaurlover2009-08-25

how do you get the cyber knex set

mettaurlover (author)bighead54542009-08-25

I think they've stopped selling it in stores; anyway, why're you asking ME? also, why ALMOST A YEAR LATER?

bighead5454 (author)mettaurlover2009-08-26

srry i thought that since i hurried and changed sites it wouldnt post it but anyway i bought some off ebay not even 30 mins after that and is it possible you could tell me how to build that wall-e u made by rebuilding it or sumthin i wanna torture someone muahahahahahahaha ok fine all i really wanna do is scare my mom

mettaurlover (author)bighead54542009-08-26

try building rmconstruction's minigun. that'll scare just about anyone.

bighead5454 (author)mettaurlover2009-08-27

we i also wanna scare one of my friends he says he thiks knex suck and i need a robot with a powerful gun to scare him into liking them and also with the minigun with my luck i would put the chain in backwards and it would shoot and backfire or sumthin

mettaurlover (author)bighead54542009-08-27

actually, it's almost literally impossible to put the chain in backwards. you jsut put it in so that the orange connectors are facing away from the barrels.

Skreetsha (author)mettaurlover2008-11-02


mettaurlover (author)Skreetsha2008-11-03

i didn't make a tiny one... mine's about three feet tall and can actually fold in completely AND hold stuff. the size makes it really easy to make a replacement part for the arms.

DrWeird117 (author)mettaurlover2009-02-14


mettaurlover (author)DrWeird1172009-02-15

i don't have a camera now, have taken it apart, and to top it all off, my computer wants me to die. so NO.

DrWeird117 (author)mettaurlover2009-02-15


Skreetsha (author)mettaurlover2008-11-03

Yeah if it's that big of course it is easier than XD

anaconda (author)2008-10-27

it would be cool if someone added a small machine gun on this with a moter Wall-e has become evil..... >:D >:) >:D "5 STARS" says Wall-e

Skreetsha (author)anaconda2008-10-27

Nah, that would spoil his funny head...

bighead5454 (author)Skreetsha2009-08-27

hey i might post a timebomb it has longer range that yours so think about upgrading

anaconda (author)Skreetsha2008-10-28

oh well, he still very nice :D

builder968 (author)anaconda2008-11-29

what about a wall-e with a KNEXACUTIONER!!!!!!!

anaconda (author)builder9682008-11-29

Evil wall-e will be the most dominate robot. watch out terminator. >:D

builder968 (author)anaconda2008-11-29

more dominant-2.

samus25 (author)2009-08-16

pimmy65 (author)2009-05-17

erikos kostarikos (author)2009-05-14

ooooowww i like this=D

DrWeird117 (author)2009-02-14

Those look like normal joints and sockets.

Skreetsha (author)DrWeird1172009-02-16

Loo, only look. They are way bigger and way more force resistant.

Sypran (author)Skreetsha2009-04-13

oh yeah i remember them they came with the "transforming" weird things, (they didn't transform you took it apart and back together) ... thinking about it.... they had very little real parts

DrWeird117 (author)Skreetsha2009-02-16

Oh. Are you POSITIVE!!! they can't be replaced?

Skreetsha (author)DrWeird1172009-02-22

Nope, not from what i know. Maybe DJ Radio has an alternative. He is very good at finding replacements for exotic parts. :D

DrWeird117 (author)Skreetsha2009-02-22

I'll ask.
