Wall-e Garbage Bot





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)

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.

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

Step 5: Assembly of the Bottom

If you don't know how to connect them, ask it in a comment at that specific step.

Step 6: The Front of the Body

This is the shutter that make sure that there aren't any pieces that fall out the front.
