I GOT RIPPED OFF!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Answered

ok, so i decided i would get the Motorized madness ball machine. it had 2004 parts, chain links, gears, and a motor. i thought that would be a jackpot.

but i was wrong, as most of the parts were those tiny knex parts that we all hate. there was only one bag of real knex and a bag of chain links and gears with the longer rods. the 5 balls were also of good use.

so, what was the best knex set you ever bought?

say that you bought it and opened it and there were less pieces...or you could do waht i used to do when i used to need some pieces.... pick a set out with a lot of connectors, write down the model number and call 1 800 KID KNEX...tell em that you bought the set, but the bag with connectors (or whatever you need is missing) and they'll send you the bag of whatever at no charge :P

well, i need regular size parts and there was only one bag in the set, so, if i say all the regular size parts are missing, i wont gain much, except for the white connectors, orange connectors, and yellow rods

no, i don't have that kind of money. if i did i would though, i could use the pieces. really, i could make it now. i just need to get another one of the white gear motors(my white gear is stripped and i don't know were the outlet hookup for it is.)

ya, that is what i thought. i am guessing that the instructions are not as in depth as some others they made because of the size, making it hard for little kids to make.

Well they give you a set with directions and a picture on the box on how it's supposed to look and you say you get ripped off? It's really your fault...
