Knex transformer Poll Answered

I am considering posting another transformer instructable from my collection of transformers i have. It whas been a while since i posted anything and wanted to conduct a poll to decide if and what i should post. So for this poll please on one submission per person and to include only the following: If you want to see a new transformer instructable yes or no and your reason why also which one of the many transformers i have posted you want to see. Depending on the outcome of this i will make my decison


now that you made them make them move better im just sayn they dont move like they should

Knex are not the most forgiving when it comes to articulation. So when creating them I got the transformations as accurate as I can, but making it pose is another thing all together.

wow I love all the transformers on this site, especialy yours and I have now subscribed Ive always wanted to make a knex bumblebee but I dont have enough joints. I wanted to make one like battlefronts bumblebee as the new camaro

The Bumblebee Camaro Transformer posted by Battlefront, is my design that he reverse engineered.

I woul like the yellow and red car

hey everyone! I was able to build optimus from a picture that I downloaded to my computer from this site. I might even show you a picture of it too! It took me four days to build too. Glitched9700 you are incredible at building knex transformers and keep up the great work.

4 days isn't bad took me took me longer to create him originally, can't wait to see it. I spent a most of my summer building them, Ironhide took me about 4 different versions be4 i got it right.

well that wasn't my first design, it was redesigned probably 3 times be4 i got it to that version so a while i don't remember the length of time but alot of trial and error never got it on the first try.

Hey glitched I just finished your jazz today and it looks awesome. i am soooooo happy i did not take it apart and give up. I will send pics soon!

Hey glithed and everybody else! Baaaaddd news!! my digital camera broke so I will not be posting any more pictures until i get another one SORRY! This is the reason why I have not posted any pictures. Sorry again!

HO!HO!HO! guess what I got for christmas! a digital camera! and a new ps3 for christmas!! You know what that means glitched! I will be posting pictures of my knex Transformers pictures of Jazz,Bumblebee(special version!),and Ratchet! Hope you like them. Also I am looking forward to your answer(if you like them or not.) And happy New Year!

Hey, thanks! I spent like 4 months building them, and cool pic benboy

They are very impressive, Very well done without instructions. They are very similar to the versions that are posted. As a critique Bumblebees head isn't distinguishable from his body, Also I recently changed Jazz( not posted yet) to look more like his car. You duplicated it accurately but I never was happy with his design. Ratchet again was duplicated perfectly, but with all my transformers new and imporoved he is on the chopping block now. Anyways, Keep up the good work I hope to see some original transformer designs of yours.

Hey glitched, I made a custom transformer 9 months ago ,and it was very cool to look at. It had to be dismantled(which I did not want to do). I thank that kneximus prime is the coolest thing I have ever seen on this site! I am totally SPEECHLESS!! Did you notice on my bumblebee that it had different arms and had guns in picture 2?

yeah looks like you took my older version of bumble bee and gave it your own upgrade which is cool.

Hey G. I have been working on a knex transformer that is custom. It com out horrible but is a lot better now but not done. Do you remember that tow truck in transformers? His name is longarm that is the one i am working on. I am also using the toy for reference. I will post pics soon.

awesome cant wait to see it. Toy is the best reference you can get.

I only used it for ref. The product isn't the toy the products name is RUSHER his vehicle is a rally car. I like the car better than robot form it is finished(finished it tonight) just for the record. Pics will be posted tomorrow. HOPE YOU LIKE HIM!

just got done finishing jazz completely and I did a custom bumblebee from glitched pictures. also I found some matalic knex parts so I used some of them(most)to build(re build)jazz and it looks awesome

Thats what i was going for when I built him, I also gave him a slight makeover and will post some pics.

i built ratchet also last night Pretty awesome!! could you post some back pictures of him(ratchet)?

Blackout had been dismantled for parts, he is being used in my current project ehich is demanding alot of peices.

I am not building anything like that currently it was just an idea I had

Oh :( I loved your creations but I can't force you to make a new creation :(

heres rusher the coolest transformer i made. hope you love him!


very nice, I like it, one tiny suggestion if you can figure out how to make the front of the car split apart and become seperate legs. Also getting the balance between making an awesome car or make an awesome robot is very difficult but it came out good.

I was able to split them. I have been woking on him since last sunday.

Here's the new ones I am working on. The first one is Starscream. The second one is Brawl.

First let me say these are fantastic, I am just wondering are you using any reference for these? like toys? pictures?

Thank you! I have done some remodeling on starscream( there is a two tail finns now. He only took one night to make. I am trying to fix his arms. I don't like them that much. Brawl took 8 tries. I did use the toys at first for ref. I did not on the starscream. I used memory from my toy transformers( on the final models). I will post pics of my new starscream very soon( tonight or tomorrow). I fixed the legs too( on starscream.)
