Introduction: Knex - Man
This is my first instructable so pls constructive critiscm (soz for spelling)and i decided to go with my man (Mr. Knex). It has very simple instructions and is a great thing to make. It doesn't have that many pieces it takes about 1 and a half full sets due to the amount of bars. Anyway lets get the pro's and con's.
You can alter mouth expressions.
Same features as a normal man.
Pretty life size (for a child).
Good fun to make.
