Intro: Instructables Robot, of Knex!

I have been a really annoyed at how low knexer rep has been, and have had enough guns for a
looooooong time. I want to not be held back, and am hoping that this will stop you knex haters from lowering our ratings, without even looking at what it is.

I decided that building The Robot from knex would be a great way to start, so here is my contribution towards the non-knex community, with a nice little spark of ingenuity.

Did I mention that this is a REAL robot, with programmable settings and voice settings? Well it is!

The voice chip I have decided works best is Gramps, from the cybots set.

    Cool, even cooler if the arms had some sort of interchangeable Knex weapon and fired with the remote control.

    Scale up and print out =SMART='s paper robot so you can put some clothes on your bare bot.

    I have a plan, but that would be better. Only problem is that I don't have a huge printer, but I could get my uncle to do it.

    But I need the shape to be PERFECT. I plan on just cutting out construction paper, as that will work on knex.
