    Cool. Even cooler if it shot stuff. But then that would be dangerous for your brother (and the army men.) Move out soldiers, we've been attacked by K'nex. MAN DOWN, MAN DOWN!!! +4/5 stars.

    Thanks dsman! It is really nice to get a review from someone who is so good at building like you. Now that I see how easy it is to make a Instructable (I always thought it would be hard) I will TOTALLY make more... (Maybe that uzi I am working on...)
