    In theory the shape of a blue connector will fit, but it’s impractical because to make it lock in place with a tan clip it would take more parts and it would be more bulky. You also would lose a lot of strength.

    I did.. And I said that the said person should get more knex.
    But, there are lots of ways to make knex work in ways they weren't meant to. You just have to mess around with it.
