Who here is interested? Answered

Who is interested in transformers? Who likes making their own transformers? Who has knex and/or legos? If you answered yes to all of these questions, please, let me know. I'd like to see more home-made TF's on the site, and might run a contest if I get enought participants. Please, tell me. I'll have more information on the idea once I know who all might be interested. Feel free to let friends on instructables know, in fact, I'd appreciate it if you told people about it. Also, feel free to ask questions. One more thing, I'm not sure on this, but I might have a section where you can make your own TF from scratch, made from different various materials.

I made 2 TF's. From scratch. But...legs and arms are VERY flimsy. I need to make them better. My arms are thin. They cant mould and stay in one place. I'll post pics.

I dont like the cheap action figure toys, but making one on your own sounds really interesting ,Mepain. it neads a sort of raw knowledge of topology and deductive reasoning. Sounds really neat! !f there was some thing like that on instructibles, i'd be eagar to see it.

I'd REALLY like to see a K'NEX one, mainly because with Lego if you built something that complex there's a lot of fancy pieces few people have (I do have a lot though).

Hmm... I'm not really into Transformers that much. They are cool and everything, but serve no perpose. Maybe a transforming gun would be cool. Who knows, and by the way, what did you mean by pass on?
