Knex are not the most forgiving when it comes to articulation. So when creating them I got the transformations as accurate as I can, but making it pose is another thing all together.

The Bumblebee Camaro Transformer posted by Battlefront, is my design that he reverse engineered.

hey everyone! I was able to build optimus from a picture that I downloaded to my computer from this site. I might even show you a picture of it too! It took me four days to build too. Glitched9700 you are incredible at building knex transformers and keep up the great work.

4 days isn't bad took me took me longer to create him originally, can't wait to see it. I spent a most of my summer building them, Ironhide took me about 4 different versions be4 i got it right.

They are very impressive, Very well done without instructions. They are very similar to the versions that are posted. As a critique Bumblebees head isn't distinguishable from his body, Also I recently changed Jazz( not posted yet) to look more like his car. You duplicated it accurately but I never was happy with his design. Ratchet again was duplicated perfectly, but with all my transformers new and imporoved he is on the chopping block now. Anyways, Keep up the good work I hope to see some original transformer designs of yours.

Hey glitched, I made a custom transformer 9 months ago ,and it was very cool to look at. It had to be dismantled(which I did not want to do). I thank that kneximus prime is the coolest thing I have ever seen on this site! I am totally SPEECHLESS!! Did you notice on my bumblebee that it had different arms and had guns in picture 2?

very nice, I like it, one tiny suggestion if you can figure out how to make the front of the car split apart and become seperate legs. Also getting the balance between making an awesome car or make an awesome robot is very difficult but it came out good.

Thank you! I have done some remodeling on starscream( there is a two tail finns now. He only took one night to make. I am trying to fix his arms. I don't like them that much. Brawl took 8 tries. I did use the toys at first for ref. I did not on the starscream. I used memory from my toy transformers( on the final models). I will post pics of my new starscream very soon( tonight or tomorrow). I fixed the legs too( on starscream.)
