K'NEX Micro, Articulated Man.




Introduction: K'NEX Micro, Articulated Man.

About: I am a cardboard blacksmith, hard at work making armor and accessories. Skyrim, Sword Art Online, and Lord of the Rings all the way. If there is anything you'd like to see me make, I'd love the challenge!

I've spent my childhood trying to perfect my K'nex man, and now I can share it with you all!

Step 1: Materials

12 white four slotted connector

4 yellow three slotted connector

6 green one slotted connector

6 orange two slotted connector

14 red five slotted connector

3 blue four slotted connector

6 silver seven slotted connector

3 black eight slotted connector

1 silver seven spaced rod

18 yellow four spaced rod

25 black one slot rod

Step 2: The Torso

This is the central unit of the man.

Step 3: The Legs

Can rotate at the waist, bend at the hip, rotate and bend at the knee, and rotate at the ankle.

Step 4: The Arms

Can rotate at the shoulder, bend up and down at the shoulder, bend and rotate at the elbow, and rotate at the wrist.

Step 5: The Head

Can rotate at the neck, an can shake up and down.

NOTE, The central unit of the head is not attached to the rest ot the head, only to the neck.

Step 6: Done!

You can make weapons for your man, like I did here with his axe.

Have fun with it, and make it your own!

Sincerely yours,


1 Person Made This Project!

I built it then modded it a lot so it's a mech and now I posted the instructable for it it's almost completely different the only thing that's the same as like the arms and the body and the arms are barely even the same

That was the hardest thing I've ever assembled to date! It was literally the first time I have ever nearly rage-quit a build lmao. Maybe I just didn't think of the easiest method of assembly since it kept disconnecting other rods while connecting.

I knew his name long before I finished, and can easily see why it could take an entire childhood to build haha, Mr Stress Knex
