This is an Actual Transformer Knex came out with 8 years ago and the instructions are still in tact. This is the ONLY transformer instructions i own and since I had it for so long i figured it would be cool to bring back one of the better Knex sets that came out.

Supplies:

Step 1: Steps 1 -17

Just follow the pictures

Step 2: Steps 18 - 35

Keep following pictures cant get easier than this

Step 3: Steps 36 - 51

Last parts of building this transformer

Step 4: Transforming the Truck

It an easy transformation and a build but like a lot Knex designs it has potential to be upgraded.

Step 5: Easy to Custamize

Before I had the ingenious idea to create transformers out of knex based on the movie toys I built this. But it wasn't good enough for me So i decided to use this design as a base model for my Optimus Prime that I created. These pictures are an evolution of my Optimus Prime.

    I scanned the entire instruction booklet so I'm pretty sure this was the only model for the set, i guess cause it was a transformer it would be rather difficult to make a few models out of it.

    there are other knex transformers, i know there was a plane and i think there was a car. They are extremely rare, however
